Cloud migration challenges

Cloud migration challenges

As technology has matured, more and more businesses started leveraging the benefits of the cloud. Contrary to file servers, the cloud allows easy scalability, enhanced mobility and collaboration between offices at a fraction of on-premise costs. Businesses are adopting cloud computing processes, however, it is not an easy initiative. Cloud migration introduces new challenges:

  • Migrating data to the cloud feels like an uphill battle
  • Low or slow adoption of a new solution
  • Not every cloud solution is secure enough

Tresorit’s zero-knowledge e2e encryption architecture means that, unlike cloud storage giants like Dropbox, Tresorit cannot decrypt and access users’ files. So it cannot be subpoenaed to hand over content data itself.

Our virtual storage vault is secured with zero-knowledge end-to-end encryption and provides a safe haven for your files and documents, providing on-premise equivalent security in the cloud.

Secure work from anywhere

Leverage powerful control and monitoring options

Setting up high-level protection for file servers is much harder than you would think. Firewalls, anti-virus, or other standard security products are usually not enough. You also have to design and maintain a secure server configuration and keep your servers up-to-date with the latest security patches. With Tresorit, you don't have to worry about security.

10 reasons why you should switch from file servers →

Frank Bösenberg

"We were unable to afford the expenses and efforts of company servers and IT experts, who keep our security up-to-date. By switching to Tresorit our consultants and clients are now presented with the desired flexibility - without having to compromise their data security."

Frank Bösenberg, CEO of Eurogrant, a German consulting company, which supports universities and businesses procuring funding from EU research projects.

Easy Back-up, File Recovery, and Ransomware Protection

On-premise to cloud migration does not mean you have to give up on your existing file structure. Tresorit enables you to keep your files the way you like them when you upload them to the cloud. Uploading a backup only takes a few clicks. And in the event you lose your device, your data will still be accessible as Tresorit updates your files in real-time and automatically adds any edits you make to your online backup. Tresorit also allows you to restore files deleted accidentally or due to ransomware.

Files can be accessed on the go from Tresorit's mobile app or via the Tresorit Web Access. Users can also download the Tresorit desktop application for an improved experience and easy file syncing between their devices. The application runs in the background, making sure that all files are up‑to‑date.
