Comparison of online backup services.

Online backup is a particular kind of file hosting service; however, various products that are designed for file storage may not have features or characteristics that others designed for backup have.

Guide to the Open Cloud - The Linux Foundation

In particular I keep an eye on what's what with Linux and open-source software, but even I have trouble keeping track of what's going on with the open-source cloud technologies. Which is why I'm happy to welcome The Linux Foundation's 2015 report: Guide to the Open Cloud: Open Cloud Projects Profiled, which will be released on January 20th. According to the Foundation, "The purpose of this guide is to serve as a starting point for users considering which projects to use in building and deploying their own open clouds. Taking a deeper look into cloud infrastructure, the paper includes storage, provisioning and platform projects. New categories outline emerging cloud operating systems, Software-defined Networking (SDN), and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) technologies" Informe técnico sobre seguridad en la nube.

The revelation that surveillance was allegedly happening in foreign countries has put the EU in a difficult position, not least for diplomatic reasons.

In cloud we trust? The PRISM effect on the future of cloud-computing.

Perhaps more interesting, though, is the number of high-profile technology companies that have understandably waded into the fray in recent weeks – claiming that the government’s activity undermines their customers’ confidence and by proxy, has taken its toll on their hard earned bottom-line. From the cloud-computing perspective, the industry consensus is that this damaged trust will cost US-based providers of hosting services tens of billions of dollars internationally. While Europe’s digital chief, Neelie Kroes has wasted no time in claiming that the PRISM scandal has presented an opportunity for Europe to become the world’s leading “trusted cloud region” – EU providers will not emerge unscathed. Cloud Computing Security Strategy Includes Cryptography. Best Free Encryption Utility for Cloud Storage. Cloudifile is a new cloud encryption entry from an established organization.

Best Free Encryption Utility for Cloud Storage

I have applied my criteria for encryption software, and while it is new I am comfortable including Cloudifile in this encryption category. Cloudifile is offered by Cloud Labs, which is a product spin-off of Apriorit. Apriorit has extensive experience in security projects that relate to a product like Cloudifile. Here's how it works: Cloudifile creates a new folder in Dropbox, and encrypts and moves the files you want to store in the cloud to that Dropbox folder.

It also creates a virtual drive where you can access the files (when you are logged in). Tresorit is a significant entry in the "client plus cloud" encryption arena, with a free 5 GB plan. Tresorit support is comprehensive and well written, and they have added tutorials for all platforms. I've been using Tresorit for my most important data since September, 2013, and it has performed flawlessly. SpiderOak is not just an encryption program. Box - 10 Gb. MEGA. The privacy company. 50 Gb.

Cinco alternativas seguras a Dropbox con cifrado de archivos

Y no me refiero a las fotografías que subimos a Facebook o a Twitter, sino a la forma en la que las empresas, sobre todo las pequeñas empresas, pueden formar una especie de archivero virtual donde se encuentran todos los documentos relevantes. Hoy en día, no solamente Dropbox es un jugador importante, sino que también tenemos otros pesos pesados como SkyDrive, Google Drive, el más empresarial Box, Mega, el emprendimiento que surgió de las cenizas de Megaupload, y muchos más. Sin embargo, a veces la seguridad deja mucho que desear. Por eso, hoy examinaremos algunas alternativas seguras a Dropbox, relacionadas sobre todo con el cifrado de archivos. Shared. Copy.

PRISM revelations result in lost business for US cloud companies. The revelations about the National Security Agency’s (NSA) broad monitoring of traffic and access to the data of cloud providers spurred by the actions of former NSA contractor Edward Snowden may or may not have hurt national security, depending on who you ask.

PRISM revelations result in lost business for US cloud companies.

But according to a recent survey by the industry organization Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), the exposure of NSA’s PRISM program is having a very real impact on the bottom line of US cloud service providers in the form of lost overseas customers. Concerns about NSA surveillance are hardly new. The PATRIOT Act’s “Enhanced Surveillance” provisions have raised privacy concerns about using US service providers since it was passed.
