Tresorit named a Global Leader in Cloud Computing
October ushers in autumn leaves, all things pumpkin spice and in the cloud computing space – awards season!
Without further ado, we’re excited to announce that Tresorit has been awarded the Business Intelligence Group’s 2019 Stratus Award for Cloud Computing in the Cloud Storage category.
We couldn’t be more delighted that the hard work our team puts into providing a secure cloud storage alternative has been recognized.
The Stratus Awards recognize those contributing to the continued innovation of cloud computing and offering something truly different to what is already on the market. BI Group believes that as more and more people turn to cloud computing for its many advantages, it is important to reward companies who are striving to add unique value to people’s lives with their cloud-based services.
“The cloud has rapidly become a central fixture in our personal and professional lives,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer of Business Intelligence Group. “The 33 winners we recognize today are changing the way we all communicate, conduct business and interact with the world. We are honored and proud to reward these leaders in business.”
Our CEO elaborates, “Many enterprises are holding back from migrating to the cloud due to security and privacy concerns,” says István Lám. “With security guaranteed by end-to-end encryption, more businesses can and will choose Tresorit’s cloud solution.”
Why Tresorit Stands Out
Popular cloud-based services such as Dropbox, Box or OneDrive usually employ server-side encryption. This means that any data you store and content you share is encrypted on their servers using a master key which their administrators can access. In order to provide their services and allow subcontractors and legal authorities to view your data as well, they routinely access and scan the content of your files, decrypting them at certain moments. What this creates are security gaps in the journey of your files which increase the odds of a data breach, whether due to a malicious attack or simple human error.
Tresorit provides a novel approach to secure cloud storage by using Zero-Knowledge, end-to-end encryption which encrypts files on the users device before they are even uploaded to the cloud. Our technology secures your files on your device with some of the highest-grade encryption methods – given the strength of Tresorit’s security, breaking this protection would take hundreds of years.
Unlike other services, Tresorit never transmits or stores files, encryption keys and user passwords in unencrypted or unhashed form. As you control the encryption key, nobody else can access it to decrypt your files, not even Tresorit administrators. Your content is not decrypted at any point of its journey in the cloud and only yourself and your chosen recipients can access your file content. This means we cannot recover forgotten passwords, nor hand over data to a third party without your consent.
