We at Degoo aim to do everything in our power to ensure your files are as safe and secure as possible. We'll go through everything we do to achieve this right now.
Security is a top concern for us. We use many techniques to protect your files..
We store your file data using 256-bit AES.
All server communication is encrypted using an SSL/TLS secure tunnel to transfer files between you and us.
We apply PBKDF2 to all passwords before storing them and further protect them by applying HMAC512, with a secret "pepper" key.
We store multiple copies of all your files in very secure and reliable data centers. This ensures the files are always there when you need them.
Over time 100% of all hard drives fails!
Degoo is an offsite backup solution meaning your files are stored at remote locations across the globe. This means your files are for example protected against:
- Computer viruses
- Hard drive crash
The main (and possible only) advantage with onsite backup compared to offsite backup is the upload speed. When storing your backup offsite the upload bandwidth of your Internet connection is often the limiting factor. Taking this into account the time to backup your files might be a small price to pay when it comes to ensuring all your important files are safely backed up.
The backup process in Degoo is completely automatic. The one thing you need to do is selecting the folders you want to backup. You can read more about how our automatic backup works in this article.
