Our desktop application pCloud Drive takes advantage of client-side encryption and pCloud Crypto for Mobile was the next logical step" - Tunio Zafer, pCloud CEO
ZUG, SWITZERLAND (PRWEB) August 26, 2015
Cloud storage provider pCloud officially introduced pCloud Crypto for Android and iOS.
pCloud Crypto, originally an additional file security feature of the desktop application pCloud Drive, is now available on the service's mobile apps for Android and iOS. This solution utilizes client-side encryption with which no one except the users themselves can see their data, file names and contents. Accessing the encrypted files in the apps has been simplified to only typing a personal passcode, called "Crypto pass".
"Our desktop application pCloud Drive takes the advantage of client-side encryption and pCloud Crypto for Mobile was the next logical step" said pCloud's CEO Tunio Zafer. “In a growing mobile society, users need the option to access their files securely, and such a solution ensures that they do so."
pCloud Crypto acts as a zero-knowledge privacy folder where users can store as many sensitive files as needed. Because only the users know their Crypto pass, not even the service provider has access to what’s inside. While a manual activation is required for personal pCloud accounts, pCloud for Business – the company’s storage solution for businesses has the feature built-in.
The encryption feature is also available for pCloud Drive the service's advanced desktop application for Windows, Mac OS and Linux. This allows cross-platform accessibility with a top-grade security layer.
2015 is a strong year for the company with pCloud Transfer and pCloud for Business arriving to the market earlier. What's more, the company recently announced its market expansion with a series A round of funding from private investors.
