Tresorit – Providing end-to-end encrypted collaborative and storage solution

Almost all of us like to keep our files safe and secure. While in earlier, days people used to keep separate external disks to keep essential files locally. Now, there are many online cloud storage options, which keeps your files safe and secure. The cloud services have robust and multiple storage options that prevent any user data from getting deleted.

However, in the market of numerous online storage solutions, one can't trust each solution, although it's free. Personal data is important, and everyone wants to keep them safe. Here comes end-to-end encryption. Reputed cloud service providers, like Google, Microsoft, Apple, Dropbox, and Box, already have server encrypted protection to all the files you upload. The employees working at the data centers can't access them. But, an interesting cloud storage company, Tresorit, has something unique which separates it from others. Apart from server-side encryption, it also employs client-side encryption, which adds extra protection to your files.

The Tresorit Advantage

Every year, we hear the news about a server getting compromised. Many major security breaches and vulnerabilities come from reputed tech giants like Facebook, Apple, Google, etc. People's trust in tech giants is already broken. Most customers feel they can no longer trust companies with their data. Corporate and client information is too sensitive to store and share with Dropbox, Box, Google, or OneDrive.

Tresorit uses shareable client-side encryption and server-side, which protects data during storage and access and across all devices. The server-side encryption means that, before you upload files, it is already encrypted by the software on your device with powerful AES-256 encryption. Tresorit also uses HMAC message authentication codes applied on SHA-512 hashes.

While collaborating remotely over the files, users can share protected files and folders with others, work together on them, and keep the documents synced and secure in every step of the process. Tresorit also claims that it does not store user's authentication data, so even local government agencies can't force Tresorit to provide details of the file content. This is one of the most important driving factors of people trusting the company.
