Sydney, Australia, September 05, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Explicit photos of dozens of female celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence have surfaced on the internet, triggering many to question the security of online storage facilities like iCloud and Google Drive. Syncdocs is a new free tool that keeps your online data private.
Syncdocs securely encrypts files before uploading them to Google Drive, so no unencrypted data ever leaves your computer. This provides true end-to-end encryption, and only authorized people have the key. Hackers gaining access to the account will only see encrypted gibberish without the key. Even Apple or the NSA cannot read the data in your files without this key, all they will see is encrypted gibberish.
With Syncdocs, encrypted photo and files can easily be shared with others who have permission. Permissions can be revoked at any time. Online storage can also be partitioned into secure, private and public sections, with different encryption settings on each. Encryption keys can be safely backed up, too.
True end-to-end Google Drive encryption
"Google holds the keys to their encryption solution, so it does not provide true protection, as they still have full access to your data," says customer Fred Lowe, CIO of Oxito Health Solutions, "With Syncdocs we own the keys, and no one else can access or spy on our data."
Files and folders are securely protected in the cloud with military-strength AES256 encryption. This is important for protecting corporate or customer data stored in the computing cloud.
For healthcare professionals, the at-rest encryption provided by Syncdocs is needed when complying with government regulations like HIPAA for storing patient records.
Syncdocs adds many other enhancements to Google Drive
Syncdocs also offers many other enhancements to Google Drive, chiefly:
* Multiple accounts can be used concurrently. This is especially useful for users with separate home and work Google accounts.
* Folders are synced from anywhere on a PC or network, not just the single folder dictated by Google.
* Syncdocs can easily be deployed in the enterprise with fully automated, scripted installations.
* All Google data is backed up, even Google documents and spreadsheets.
* Easy migration from Microsoft Office to Google Docs
