Consider whether Google Drive is best for securing your digital life

LOS ANGELES, April 19, 2012 –/– Lately, there’s been a lot of buzz about Google Drive, an upcoming cloud storage service from Google. It’s claimed that Google Drive will offer users 5GB of free storage, with the option to purchase more at any time. Sounds good, but what’s going to be the biggest problem with Google Drive? In a word, privacy.

Google has no problem targeting ads directly to their users based on the content of their Gmail messages. What’s to stop Google from doing the same with the documents and other files you’d upload to Google Drive? How private is it, really?

IDrive Online Backup, a cloud storage provider, is committed to providing secure, fast, and simple Online Backup. IDrive Online Backup, on its new EVS platform, has offered 5GB accounts – completely free of charge, no strings attached – for a long time now. On top of that, IDrive offers the option to use a private encryption key; with this key, nobody – not even IDrive – can decrypt a user’s files. Create an IDrive account and store up to 5GB of documents, and more, without any privacy concerns.

Additionally, IDrive offers:

  • Cross-compatibility – A single IDrive account, on the EVS platform, can be accessed seamlessly from Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, and Android devices.
  • No data mining – IDrive does not scan or search your personal files. Your documents and other files are personal and private; we get that, and we think it should stay that way.
  • Plug-ins - IDrive was built from the ground-up on their EVS platform; the APIs are freely available for developers to create plug-ins for the service. IDrive Connect for example, allows a user to map their Google Docs to a lettered drive on their computer. Additionally, users can back up their Google Docs to their existing IDrive Online Backup account.

What about sync space? As far as Google Drive goes, that remains to be seen. IDrive, however, is promising some exciting new developments in the sync storage arena which are coming soon.

IDrive Online Backup is available for home and server editions of Windows and Mac OS X and for mobile devices in the Apple App Store and Android Market.
