LOS ANGELES, Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- FileLocker™, the industry's truly secure data sharing solution, is officially available today at http://www.filelocker.com. Built by world-class data protection experts, FileLocker represents a next generation data sharing platform and a fundamental step forward in security.
Truly Secure File Sharing
Unlike other file collaboration services, FileLocker protects data by encrypting it locally, in-transit and again in the cloud. This means the file is stored with two layers of encryption – one controlled by FileLocker, and one controlled by the user. Other web-based file sharing services send private files to the cloud in their raw, unlocked format- portraying private data as safe when it arrives in their cloud. The real risk is that data is decipherable if hacked while in transit and also while stored in their cloud. Those vendors have ongoing access to the clear-text of users' data. FileLocker doesn't.FileLocker employs end-to-end encryption from desktop to cloud to keep information completely safe if the users enable the option. Files are encrypted before leaving a device with a personal passphrase known only to the user, transferred over a 256-bit SSL connection, encrypted again and then stored in the FileLocker cloud. Also, files are kept for an unlimited amount of time and each-and-every past version can be restored (unlimited versioning). Private Cloud Deployable FileLocker also gives companies the option of running FileLocker in their own, internal network, using a company's existing hardware and infrastructure. FileLocker can be hosted behind a company's private firewall, still utilizing the software's end-to-end encryption between client and cloud. According to Gartner Research, up to 55% of corporate CIOs prefer their file storage behind the firewall. Jeff Boles, senior analyst at Taneja Group says "We've been carefully watching this space to see who would be first to innovate inside the enterprise walls with a Dropbox-like solution, and [InfraScale] looks like they're first…" From Data Protection Experts FileLocker is created by InfraScale™, whose technology powers over 600 cloud service brands, including SOS Online Backup™ and Enterprise Protect™. During its development cycle, FileLocker's underlying technology has been put to use by over a million individual and company accounts and shared over a billion files. Ken Shaw, CEO of InfraScale says, "We had three goals when designing FileLocker: firstly, it had to support end-to-end encryption so files are secure in our public cloud, secondly it had to support private cloud deployment for use behind the firewall, and lastly it had to be affordable to use. FileLocker achieves all three." Amazing Security, Amazing Price FileLocker is free for five people and up to 25 GBs of cloud storage (5 GB per person). For more than five people FileLocker is just $5/month per person. At this price FileLocker comes with completely unlimited cloud storage, the secure FileLocker Desktop Sync app, the FileLocker Mobile application for iPhone & Android, as well as powerful administrative controls and reporting.
