We all know the way we store our files, whether  personal or business related, is changing. The days of file cabinets, manila folders, and hard drives are going the way of the typewriter and floppy disk. Just like the files you used to store in your garage and your hard drive (and your external hard drive. . . and your other external hard drive), your files on the cloud need to be just as secure. When a new technology comes along, it's tempting to think that it's the fool-proof future we've been waiting for.

We hate to be the ones to break it to you, but this isn't it.

The Cloud is a great tool. It brings the convenience of file sharing and organization to our daily lives that some of us never dreamed of--and a big thank you to the person that did. Although, just like that lock on your file cabinet, you need protection for the Cloud. In the past, the biggest concern was your hard drive crashing, or your kids using your tax documents as a coloring book. Now, people who are half way across the world from you can intercept your personal and sensitive data.

Security is a bigger issue now than it's ever been. That's where Viivo comes in. We want you to share and store as much as you please. With Viivo, you can Cloud in Confidence knowing that we are there, encrypting your files the moment you save them to your Dropbox.

Yes. Dropbox takes every precaution to keep your data secure. They use SSL encryption to make sure that while you send your files to them, the network packets can’t be compromised. Once they receive your files, they store them encrypted on their servers. They also use internal policies to ensure that employees can’t access your files.

The Viivo difference is that we provide client-side encryption, while Dropbox provides encryption at the server. This just means that we’re not asking you to trust us, or anyone, with your data. Your computer encrypts your files first, before anyone else has a chance to access them.

Dropbox is an excellent company with its user’s interests at heart. Viivo provides an additional layer of privacy and security so you can Cloud in Confidence.

We all love photos. Whether they are of our pets, kids, or those crazy photos from your holiday party, there is nothing like reliving those memories through snapshots. Now, it is even easier to store and share those favorite shots with Dropbox. Recently, Dropbox acquired the Cloud based photo storage company, Snapjoy. This is exciting news for amateur and professional photographers alike. Personal computers often get overloaded with photos thanks to the digital age ("I'll take one more, just in case"). Now, with these two companies joining forces, it will be simple to upload, store, and share your photos. Although, it is important to make sure these precious memories are safe. Thanks to Viivo, you can Cloud in Confidence knowing that all of your photos are secure--especially that embarrassing one of your sister from her birthday party last year.

A recent survey conducted by CloudPassage shows that 22% of Cloud users are unaware that keeping their data secure is their own responsibility. Here at Viivo, we are obsessed with making sure your files are secure, so that number makes us a little nervous. No matter what you keep in the Cloud--work files, music, photos, or personal documents--it's not your Cloud server who is responsible for keeping those files secure, it's you. We know that sounds daunting, but that's why we are here. At Viivo, we take that responsibility from you so that you can rest a little easier. There is nothing we enjoy more than knowing that every Cloud user who chooses Viivo can Cloud in Confidence knowing that their data is secure.

Here at Viivo, we know that some of you are still hesitant about using the Cloud to store and backup your personal and work data. We know that breakthroughs in technology can be scary, but that is why we are here--to put your fears at ease, and leave you free to Cloud in Confidence. We don't want you left in the new technology dust, so here are 5 reasons why you should be in the Cloud. . .

  1. In the Cloud, you have virtually unlimited space. At Viivo, we know those times of frustration you've had when your computer's hard drive is getting full. Going through files, deciding which ones to keep on your computer, and which ones to back up. With the Cloud, you never have to choose. Whether you are a small business owner, the CEO of a blossoming tech firm, or using the Cloud for personal reasons, the Cloud can store all of your files.
  2. The Cloud keeps your files organized. How many times have you sorted through emails looking for a file that was sent to you? No more. With the Cloud, your friends, co-workers, and business partners can easily upload files to the Cloud where you will easily be able to find them--every time.
  3. You, and your employees, have access to files 24/7. We've all had those times when we've woken up to an urgent email, but the files you need are on your work computer. That doesn't matter, you'll be able to access your files from your computer at home too--and now thanks to Viivo's iPhone and Android app, you can access it on your phone as well.
  4. The Cloud is a great backup for your files. Even if you have everything on your computer, and an external hard drive, it never hurts to have that extra protection when the worst happens.
  5. Because we always have your back. At Viivo nothing matters to us more than securing your data so that you can Cloud in Confidence. You never have to worry about your files when you have Viivo on your side.

Remember, the Cloud is a great tool--but only if you are keeping it secure.
