MENLO PARK, Calif., Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SurDoc announced today that TMC, publisher of Cloud Computing Magazine, has named SurDoc's TruPrivacy™ Technology as a 2013 Cloud Storage Excellence Award winner. The award recognizes companies that have introduced or improved cloud storage solutions.
TruPrivacy Technology – Changing the Way Files are Secured in the Cloud
Security and privacy have always been concerns for those using or considering cloud storage. Most cloud storage providers encrypt customer data via a methodology that uses an encryption key to encrypt customer data. Unfortunately, the mismanagement of these keys can lead to data loss, exposure or theft.
SurDoc's patent-protected TruPrivacy security technology protects user privacy with its unique encryption method. Rather than just using a security key to encrypt a file, TruPrivacy technology includes a step to use the file to encrypt the key. Because of the TruPrivacy process, only the user who owns the file can calculate the encryption key; the server has no knowledge of either the encryption key or the unencrypted file. Thus, only the user who owns the particular file can access it.
As part of this process, SurDoc invented a new algorithm to manage encryption keys, further ensuring that data is kept completely private.
With TruPrivacy, consumers now can confidently use cloud-based storage, knowing that their data and files are finally safe from hackers or any other unauthorized third-party, even their cloud service provider's employees.
"Without TruPrivacy technology, consumers and businesses face substantial risks of data leakage, exposure and theft when using cloud-based storage," said Alex Wang, SurDoc CEO. "SurDoc's unique encryption gives users complete peace of mind."
"We are pleased to present SurDoc with a Cloud Storage Excellence Award for its commitment to product quality and advancing cloud storage security," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC.
Winners of the Cloud Storage Excellence Awards are published in the January 2013 issue of Cloud Computing Magazine. Among this year's winners are both exciting startups and industry leaders.
