nCrypted Cloud brings client side integration to Dropbox, Microsoft Onedrive

Puts security at the forefront

NCRYPTED CLOUD HAS ANNOUNCED the UK and European launch of its encryption layering software for cloud storage collaboration.

nCrypted Cloud is a client-side encryption application that meshes seamlessly with a range of cloud clients including Dropbox, Box, Egnyte, Google Drive and Microsoft Onedrive.

The INQUIRER recently reported advice from senior Dropbox for Business executives that client-side encryption is an option for anyone concerned about the company's recent reputation over privacy. Suspicions grew after the appointment of former US Secretary of State Condeleezza Rice to the Dropbox board of directors.

Commenting on the story, founder Dennis Allen said, "nCrypted Cloud works very successfully across a number of the key repositories and, in the case of Dropbox, is complimentary to the enhanced security functions they will be offering.

"What's so ingenious about nCrypted Cloud is that, as cloud storage providers like Dropbox make enhancements, nCrypted Cloud continues to function as a layer on top of the services, encrypting at the endpoint (it encrypts at rest and in flight), and allowing enhanced control for enterprises, with the ability to audit files and implement data access controls."

nCrypted Cloud Enterprise Edition has a key management system that is capable of differentiating between personal and business documentation and offering seperate encryption.

It further supports security with a one-click method of withdrawing user privileges across all devices and platforms. It also includes a "trusted sharing" option that allows collaboration on a case basis, even if the collaborators aren't using nCrypted or they're not even registered for cloud services.

Commenting on the UK launch, Allan added, "I am excited to bring nCrypted Cloud to Europe, starting with the UK market, We already have a fantastic team on the ground here and are in discussion with companies in various sectors that are already very interested in what we have to offer.

"There is nothing quite like nCrypted Cloud, and it's exhilarating to be demonstrating the technology to our prospects, who seem delighted in having a much-needed solution to their user and enterprise cloud collaboration needs."

The service was launched last year in the United States and is now available offering Enterprise Level Encryption across the UK and Mainland Europe. µ
