Consumers and businesses should not rely on their cloud storage service provider's security features to protect their data. Sensitive information stored in the cloud needs to be protected and in many cases needs its own security controls to be fully protected. As we move out to cloud storage services such as Amazon Cloud Drive, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, and SkyDrive, there are some things you can trust your cloud storage provider with, but rarely is the provided infrastructure going to be enough.
The security of any encryption solution should rely on the secrecy of the encryption key instead of the encryption algorithm itself. The security level of the encryption algorithm should depend on the size of the key space, secrecy of the key, length of the key, initialization vector and how they all work together.
Security remains a top concern for users of cloud storage, but Ohanae believes there are ways to alleviate the fears. One key is to have security provisions that are designed specifically for the users to protect their cloud logins and data.
Ohanae® Cloud Storage Protection Without Compromise means that
Ohanae® Connect encrypts files stored in cloud storage sync folders.
Even if the user's login is compromised, or if the infrastructure of the cloud storage provider is compromised, the user's files will remain secure.
Ohanae® Connect Cloud Storage Protection is compatible with any cloud storage application.
Currently, we support transparent file encryption for Amazon Cloud Drive, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, and SkyDrive.
Encryption keys used by Ohanae® Connect for each cloud storage provider are unique and generated only at the time of use, only when it is needed.
This ensures that hackers will not be able to steal any encryption keys, as they are not stored.
