If 2014 Was the Year of Stolen Consumer Data, Are Corporate Secrets Next? 

 By Tom Scearce


Over the past few years, public cloud services have changed the way consumers and businesses think about files. For consumers, apps such as Dropbox make it easy and fun to store and share files with friends and family.

Security and contract concerns delay cloud adoption by EU businesses

John Whelan

Cloud computing allows businesses to store data.

Cloud computing allows businesses to store their data and carry out data processing in remote data centres, saving on average 10-20pc over the cost of installing their own IT storage.
But many business owners have concerns about using such systems, worried about everything from security to legal implications.
But a lack of knowledge is the main factor preventing businesses from using the cloud , according to the survey.
For those firms not using cloud services, insufficient knowledge was stated by 42pc of all firms across the EU as the main factor in 2014 preventing them from using this service. Another 37pc cited a risk of a security breach.
The trend towards using the cloud is clear and businesses should consider the advantages it can bring - from productivity to cost potential cost savings.

How to protect your privacy in the cloud?

While cloud computing grows rapidly, increasing number of people prefer keeping sensitive data in cloud, and, as we know, Dropbox became the best-marketed and well-known one. That led to its becoming a target for malicious attacks.

Cloudifile – Your Personal Data Guard

Cloudifile is a powerful cloud encryption tool that adds a proven security level to Dropbox improving its simplicity and efficiency at the same time. 

The aim of developing new cloud security tool lies in the fact that cloud storage is not quite secure and that’s why it often becomes a target for malicious attacks. So, Cloud Labs developers decided to add extra security layer to Dropbox to protect user’s data and, in addition, to simplify the cloud synchronization process for the user's convenience. 

Thus, Cloudifile was created, a smart system that combines extra proven security layer and transparent cloud synchronization solution, and, in spite of that, it is totally free of charge and extremely easy-to-use.

Don't let your family data become public - use Cloudifile!

The reality is that this iCloud attack actually brings up very important considerations on data security, not only for consumers, but for any enterprise that uses the cloud.
