In the wake of revelations of the top-secret program PRISM, as reported late Thursday by some of the largest news organizations, it appears several major online companies may be releasing data to government agencies – without their users’ consent. We at IDrive and IDriveSync, however, are as secure and private as ever. With our 256-bit encryption along with the additional Private Key encryption, nobody, not even the government, can see your data.

“When users select our private key option, they prevent anyone – even us – from accessing their data.” explains our CEO, Raghu Kulkarni, “This private key is not stored anywhere on our end, so no one – not us, not even the government, can access the files. Even if the government could access our customers’ data, it would be completely unreadable.” This places IDriveSync apart from competing products, “Other online storage providers . . . do not offer this level of privacy and security, offering only a default method which could be accessed by the provider.” So even if it isn’t standard for their employees to see the data, those providers have access to the customers’ key.

Business Development Associate Shane Bingham says it best, “We take customer privacy very seriously, and want to encourage everyone to make informed choices about how their data is secured. At a time when other storage providers’ commitment to their users are being questioned, this offer is our way of saying ‘we understand,’ our customers come before anything else.”
