SpiderOak – 100% Private Online Backup, Sync and Sharing
First released in 2007, SpiderOak helped define the industry of online backup. Determined to dispel the myth that ‘data online can’t be secure,’ SpiderOak carved its niche as the top choice for those most concerned with privacy. The engineering goal was simple – devise a plan where users’ files, filenames, file types, folders, and/or any other personal information is never exposed to anyone for any reason (even under government subpoena). This describes SpiderOak’s ‘zero-knowledge’ privacy environment. What does ‘Zero-Knowledge’ privacy mean? In technical terms it means that the server has ‘zero-knowledge’ of your data. In non-technical terms it means that your data is 100% private and only readable to you. In a world where more and more of our lives are online, it behooves us to think about who has access to our data from critical business documents to personal photo albums. SpiderOak provides the ability to utilize cloud technologies while retaining that precious right we call privacy. This will be added to Privacy Resources Subject Tracer™.
