If you’re like most people, there’s a chance you’ve considered a cloud storage system to save space. Furthermore, you probably realized at some point that security was the most important thing for cloud systems. No one can afford to upload sensitive data to the cloud only to find it gets stolen, misused or seen by unwarranted eyes. Luckily, we’ve put together a detailed list of the four most secure cloud storage systems.

1. Canto DAM

Canto digital asset management (DAM) is first up on the list because of it’s wide-ranging security features. These include exclusive admin privileges, file encryption and use of AWS. Users who upload files with Canto are reassured by the secure data servers it uses. All file access attempts are monitored and involve multiple levels of entry security.

The reason Canto excels at security over its competitors is that it’s a comprehensive business system. This means it understands its users have sensitive company data they need to store and share. Therefore, Canto went the extra mile with all things security. It continues to be their highest priority first and foremost. Confidently use Canto when security is of utmost importance to you.

2. pCloud

pCloud is a creative option for file storage, bringing out-of-the-box security measures that a lot of users will love. The most notable of these features is the ability to control encryption and how far it extends. If, for example, a user had a file they wanted everyone to see without any access restriction, it wouldn’t be automatically encrypted. If there is a sensitive file, the user can choose to encrypt it. This makes things easier for users working with a lot of public files.

pCloud is also a very safe system, mostly because of the level of encryption it offers. It proudly encrypts files using a 256 bit system. Furthermore, pCloud stands out because of its backup capabilities. Each file is backed up multiple times onto a user’s hard drive or device each time they upload. This prevents accidental deletions from spiraling out of control.

3. SpiderOak

SpiderOak is cloud storage designed for massive companies. It boasts security that extends to all users, no matter the quantity. This is perfect for businesses with large amount of employees who are worried an excluded user in the security storage will make a mistake and be unprotected. Another interesting option for SpiderOak is the ability to host locally with the system.

SpiderOak stands out in its administrative controls and file encryption. Administrators have control over which files are shared and what types of folders or permissions are created at a lower level. The administrator interface is seamless and intuitive, allowing admins to easily make decisions and execute them. Finally, files uploaded and shared are encrypted with advanced technology.

4. Sync

Where Sync separates itself from competitors is its commitment to user privacy. Whereas other storage systems include privacy in their areas of operation, they don’t put the same level of dedication Sync does into maintaining optimal privacy at all times.

Sync is accessible at both a basic user level and an enterprise level. There’s pricing and storage size options for both user-types. Backing both of these choices is an extensive security system that ensures any items stored are safe. It does this with two-factor authentication, user permissions and automatic backup/restore.

Make sure your cloud storage system not only fits your needs but handles all the security requirements effectively as well. Remember these four systems when implementing a new program.
