333: Securing Digital Privacy With End-to-End Encrypted Cloud Storage Technology
Users that take online privacy seriously have been moving away from file sharing solution services such as Dropbox and towards end-to-end encrypted cloud storage solutions such as Tresorit. The cloud encryption company providing secure yet user-friendly file sync & sharing for businesses. The platforms end-to-end encryption protects user files from data breaches and government surveillance alike.
Earlier this year Apple announced its CareKit development framework, designed to create apps that let healthcare professionals continue follow-up care with patients, is now integrated with Tresorit’s ZeroKit, which provides end-to-end encryption of users’ account credentials and their health data to the cloud.
To demonstrate how much they believe in the capabilities of their secure system, they invited hackers and researchers from around the world to hack it for a prize. Professionals had been trying to get into their servers for 500 days, but nobody could ’win’ this $50,000 prize.
We NEVER collect or store your files, encryption keys and passwords in unencrypted or invertible form. Files and some corresponding encryption keys can only be decrypted by the people you have explicitly shared with
The Swiss-Hungarian company was founded in 2011 by Istvan Lam, Szilveszter Szebeni, and Gyorgy Szilagy. They are providing secure, yet easy-to-use file sync for more than 10,000 businesses globally, and getting high recognition in the tech industry. The Tresorit story began when Istvan Lam, only 12, received his first cryptography book as a gift from his family. It sparked his interest in security and led him to start his fight for digital privacy in his late teens. 10 years after he first heard of cryptography, he founded Tresorit with 2 other students and the head of a leading IT security institution.
I invited Cryptographer and Tresorit CEO, Istvan Lam to talk about the importance of encryption and what it felt like to be featured on the Forbes Europe 30 under 30 in Technology list.
