Whitepaper: Boxcryptor Security Paper

Protection and Security for Your Company Data Through End-to-End Encryption

Regardless of whether a company collaborates within a cloud, or the data is stored elsewhere: Important data must be protected. Besides the loss or theft of hardware, data can also be lost through malware and hacker attacks. This is how countless amounts of company data end up in the hands of unauthorized persons every day. And the worst thing about it is that companies often don't notice this until it’s too late, if at all.

Encryption is a suitable measure for protecting data. When data is encrypted, plain-text information gets converted in such a way that unauthorized persons can no longer read it. Only those who have the key to decrypt the data can access the information in its original form.
