More and more businesses are getting on board with the cloud and there’s no mistake that it’s a great idea. The cloud is lowering IT costs, increasing productivity, and broadening the range of the workplace. We are now using Internet-based software that can be accessed from home, a smart phone or tablet, or virtually anywhere an Internet connection is available. The idea of BYOD or Bring Your Own Device is in motion and companies are encouraging employees to work from any device they can.
Remember when you used to dream of sitting on the beach with a laptop and a cool drink, or the day you woke up and thought you’d just love to work from your bed in your PJs?
This is an exciting new era in business where this is totally possible. But like any new technology there is always risks involved, and some love to dive in without testing the waters first, so we want to let you know that not all cloud drives are equal, and from a business perspective the public free storage services are just not good enough.
The move to the cloud has led to an increase in the desire for flexibility, productivity, and mobility. Files need to be available across all devices, platforms, and applications. Without this fluidity backing up to the cloud becomes difficult and confusing. Cloud drive provider Dropbox only backs up data that is in your designated “Sync Folder”. If you’ve got all your files organized in one folder, that’s great. But chances are you have multiple folders across multiple drives that you would like to backup. And I am sure that you would prefer those files to be secured and well encrypted. Cloud drive provider Google Drive does not encrypt your files upon upload, you would have to do it yourself ahead of time.
Did you know that your Google Drive data belongs to Google?
When you upload or submit content to [Google] services, you give Google (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, communicate, publish, publicly perform and distribute such content.
We are pretty certain that any company with sensitive data doesn’t want to use a cloud drive with those terms. So what is the answer for businesses looking for privately owned cloud drive services that allow multiple folder backup and file encryption?
