Let us set the scene for you. The year is 2012. Americans are constantly moving, and where they move, their business moves with them – and that includes their files. In fact, with everything being stored in the Cloud, their files are accessible anywhere, and on any device! Cloud storage solutions like Dropbox allows access to pictures on iOS, spreadsheets on Android, Word Docs on Windows, PDFs on Macs, and every variation thereof. And those files can be shared, with anyone, and at any time.

That also means that those files are accessible to outside parties, be it through a stolen password, a key-logger, or various other means of evil.

Thankfully, the more time we spend in the Cloud, the more we learn to live in the Cloud, and most importantly, protect our Cloud. With Viivo, you don’t have to change the way you live in the Cloud! Continue to keep your files on all of your devices, anywhere, any time – and Cloud in Confidence knowing the Viivo is keeping those files safe!

When it comes to sharing files with a team, it’s important that everyone is taking steps to keep Cloud files secure. Here are a few ways we recommend keeping your team on board on your Cloud security plan.

  1. Dropbox recently announced an addition to ‘Dropbox for Teams’ that allows the Admin to view who has and hasn’t enabled the new 2-step login process announced in August, 2012. Check that everyone on your team has this one. All it takes is one person ignoring this to raise your risk level when collaborating in the Cloud.
  2. Install Viivo across all of the team’s Dropbox enabled devices to assure that everyone is taking the necessary steps to encrypt team files. Sharing Viivo-encrypted files is just like sharing Dropbox files – so there’s no learning curve, and no excuse not to Cloud in Confidence.
  3. Control your team’s password use. Many companies insist that their team’s password is changed monthly, and has protocol / regulation around how the password is created (i.e. no brand terms, first names, or recognizable numbers in the password).

Among the many critiques that IT departments have of migrating to the Cloud, one subject of debate is financial recouping in the case of a security breach.

In this case, the public cloud is more susceptible to security risks than the private cloud, which means a higher chance of incurring costs to fix the situation after an attack.

Your business can Cloud in Confidence knowing that files are protected in case of accidental intrusion.

The 10th annual DreamForce conference hosted by SalesForce is in full spirit in San Francisco this week.  One common thread- among many- at the conference is regarding Cloud encryption.  As more and more of our lives are moving toward the Cloud, many attendees raised concerns about ensuring their contracts, sales contact, client data is safe, secure and encrypted.  We clearly were more than happy to introduce them to Viivo - you know, so they can Cloud in Confidence knowing their Cloud documents and files are secure.
