Worried About Cloud Security? Why Not Get Your Own Cloud

Worried About Cloud Security?

The number one concern that most people have with using cloud-based storage is the security of their data. Questions such as ‘Who can access my data?’, ‘Is my data safe?’, and ‘Where is my data stored?’ can rarely be satisfactorily answered by public cloud service providers such as Google Drive and Dropbox.  Yet we know that the benefits of the cloud are too numerous to not be taken advantage of. What options, therefore, does a security-conscious cloud user have available to them?

Get Your Own Cloud

The solution could be to be get your own personal cloud storage device. Having your own cloud will provide you with all of the convenience of the cloud, along with the ability to protect files and maintain your privacy.

Users who might be concerned about functionality do not need to worry. The devices act like an all-in-one cloud service that offer all the benefits that you would expect a public cloud to provide; data can still be easily shared and can be accessed anytime, from anywhere, and on any device.

Unlike a typical Network Attached Storage (NAS) device, the devices can automatically convert your digital media files so they can be played on any portable device – there is no need to download content onto a local device before playing it. Furthermore, sharing is simplified and does not require you to create a folder and assign a username for users you wish to share with.

Which Is The Best Provider?

StoAmigo has developed a product called CloudLocker. With an easy setup process and huge amounts of functionality it has many benefits, including:

  • Privacy – Nobody, including StoAmigo, has access to the contents of a CloudLocker except the user themselves.
  • Security – The device and all your files are physically located on your own premises. This contrasts to a typical public cloud provider where your data is saved on servers in unknown locations which can be access by several third parties.
  • Media Centric The CloudLocker has been designed around media consumption. Not only is streaming supported but the device is also DLNA compatible – letting you view your CloudLocker media content on a DLNA television or through any other DLNA enabled device.

After been featured on Forbes and About.com, it is clear the company is making a lasting impression with those in the industry. The company’s early success has already borne fruit, as ZCorum partnered with StoAmigo to offer the CloudLocker to broadband service providers and their subscribers. Arthur Skinner, ZCorum’s Vice President of Worldwide Sales, perhaps summarised the technology most succinctly when he stated that “CloudLocker provides an optimal balance of security and accessibility, creating a secure, private cloud that gives users complete control over their data, who they share files with and for how long”.

CloudLocker is designed with high-end specifications and is current available through StoAmigo’s website for $349. The current version comes with a usable hard drive of 264 GB.
