After PRISM, Have Big Names Damaged the Cloud’s Reputation?

Now that we know the “Big Three” cloud providers – Dropbox, Google Drive and Microsoft SkyDrive – complied with National Security Agency requests to turn over their customers’ private data as per the data mining efforts of the PRISM program, businesses who once trusted the cloud have found that trust waning lately.
It’s a logical conclusion: If the biggest names in data storage can’t be trusted, shouldn’t businesses write off the cloud altogether? No, they shouldn’t! Instead, they should make the shift to a smaller, more exclusive cloud file service like ours. Here is why.
Unlike Dropbox, Google Drive and Microsoft SkyDrive, drive2go provides companies concerned about privacy with airtight data security. Our service secures client data with 448-bit, military grade encryption. And while the biggest names in cloud storage are putting their customers’ data at risk with shared keys, drive2go utilizes private keys. We are also committed to our ‘zero knowledge’ policy, which guarantees that even we never see your data. These are massive differences between our service and theirs.
At drive2go, we understand the new privacy concerns; it is for that very reason that we refuse to allow your data to be breached. No matter the size of your company, your information is yours and yours alone. It is your property, and often, the it is the lifeblood of your business. No one – not your competitors, the cloud file service storing it for you, or any agency of the federal government – is entitled to have access to this information. In any situation, drive2go is committed to protecting your privacy.
Now that they know the truth about their data security, companies are abandoning the “big” cloud service providers and trusting us instead. If you are ready for the cloud file service you deserve, contact us to request a free 30-day trial, with no credit card required for sign up.
