LOS ANGELES, CA – Sept. 3, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — IDrive, an online backup provider, is raising awareness for the need of better encryption methods across all consumer cloud storage solutions.

“Encryption should not be only highlighted for business-level accounts, but also for consumers,” said Raghu Kulkarni, CEO of IDrive. “With the recent celebrity photo leaks, it’s a lesson to all consumers to have a better understanding of the benefits of what private key encryption can do, and how it can help protect their most precious and private moments.”

IDrive offers both cloud backup and sync functionality, enabling consumers to have end-to-end military grade 256-bit AES encryption, as standard across all accounts with an option for private key encryption. IDrive does not store the private key on its servers, meaning only the user has access to their data; not even IDrive employees can access the data.

“Most cloud storage solutions offer some sort of encryption, but they do not offer private key encryption, which is by far the best form of encryption out there,” adds Kulkarni. “With this celebrity hack, it proves data theft can happen to anyone.”

Private key encryption is a no-cost feature offered to all IDrive users. IDrive offers a variety of online backup plans as well as free lifetime 5GB backup & 5GB sync accounts.
