Why security conscious companies choose Tresorit over Dropbox

Mainstream cloud storage providers, like Dropbox, encrypt data on their servers that they control. This alone is not enough to protect you – for true security in the cloud, you need more. Try Tresorit, the secure Dropbox alternative!

  • Dropbox

    Only encrypted on the server side.

    Dropbox decrypts your files when they reach their servers, making your content vulnerable to hacker attacks and data leaks. Since they store your encryption keys to do this, they and anyone who breaches their servers can view your files.

    Tresorit

    Fully end-to-end encrypted.

    Your files are encrypted on your device and never decrypted until they reach your intended recipient - only you and anyone you authorize can decrypt the files. Even if our servers were breached (which has never happened), your files would not be readable to hackers.

  • Dropbox

    Can theoretically access and view your content anytime.

    Dropbox can and does access your content on occasion for different reasons, such as, when they deem it necessary to ensure their systems and features are working as designed. This creates opportunities for your data to be misused or lost in the process.

    Tresorit

    Cannot access your content due to our Zero-Knowledge protocol.

    Zero-knowledge means that nobody besides you holds the keys to your data, not even us, your service provider. Even if we wanted to, it would be impossible for us to decrypt and view your file content.

  • Dropbox

    Falls under US CLOUD Act.

    This legislation grants US government agencies and law enforcement full access to cloud data hosted by US companies, like Dropbox, regardless of the location of the data server. They can also legally prohibit Dropbox from informing you of their access request with a gag order.

    Tresorit

    Protected by Swiss privacy laws.

    Tresorit is headquartered in Switzerland and therefore your data is protected by some of the strongest privacy laws in the world. As a Swiss company, Tresorit cannot be compelled to participate in mass surveillance by US or EU intelligence agencies.
