Small, handy, highly dangerous
They are everywhere. In our handbags, briefcases, jackets. They are black, gray or screaming colorful and they are available in a variety of shapes: portable USB flash drives. This fact is all the more extremely astonishing, as in “cloud-times”, flash drives seem like a relic from a bygone era. To be clear: USB is out! Instead, cloud solutions offer a secure alternative for transmitting and storing sensitive data material. Nevertheless, portable USB drives are still spread as a giveaway, support home-office workers and serve as a popular tool for fast data exchange.
The ultimate security check
A secure exchange of data over the cloud is permitted by TeamDrive. TeamDrive is a collaboration software and service to sync files easily and securely with 256 bit AES end-to-end encryption using the TeamDrive cloud or the client server. Thanks to end-to-end encryption only the user to whom the data was sent is also allowed to read it. The solutions of the Sync & Share service provider correspond to the high security requirements according to Paragraph 203 Criminal Code for professional secrecy. By end to end encryption and zero knowledge concept TeamDrive protected data is completely safe from unauthorized access. In addition, versioning and immutability help to secure data in the best possible way.
But: If you choose an USB, what does that mean for the sensitive issue of data security?
Security and USB flash drive do not belong together for two important reasons. The first reason: the flash drives are too small. The second reason: saving data does not mean that the sensitive information they contain is automatically protected.
