Keep your data safe

Zettabox integrates with third party encryption providers so that you and customers are the only ones with access to your data.

You own the encryption keys — no one has access to your data but you.

If a data leak happens, your content is unreadable without your keys and passwords, which only you hold.

 

Choose your encryption tool, or we can provide one for you

It’s your content — protect it with the tools you trust, including third-party encryption you may already be using.

Or Zettabox can provide a third-party encryption tool, which provides only you with the keys. At Zettabox, we make working together safer and easier.

 

Methods of encrypting your files

There are two common types of encryption tools for working with file storage: Virtual Disk encryption and File-Level encryption.

 

VIRTUAL DISK ENCRYPTION

FILE ENCRYPTION

File encryption iconFile-Level encryption enables users to select specific files and folders to be encrypted with a unique key.

 

Virtual disk encryption merges all your files into a single encrypted file that can be synced using Zettabox.Virtual Disk

Virtual Disk merges all your files into a single encrypted file that can be synced using Zettabox. Solutions like TrueCrypt or VeraCrypt use this method and create a virtual drive on your computer that contains your encrypted files.

 

 

File level encryption creates versions of your files individually and stores each file in a Zettabox folder, so each encrypted file is synced individually.File-Level 

File-Level encryption creates versions of your files individually and stores each file in a Zettabox folder, so each encrypted file is synced separately. Zettabox integrates tools like BoxCryptor and Cryptomator to encrypt these files.

 

Zettabox can help you make the right encryption decision

 

Encryption limits certain functionality. For example, web-level access to data can be impaired with some encryption methods. So features like web preview, search and online editing might not be possible.

Zettabox can help you choose the right encryption method that meets your needs. For most users, File-Level encryption is probably best:

  • File-Level is more flexible than Disk, because metadata is visible for web/search and actual file contents are hidden.
  • Syncing is faster because a file is synced only when changes are made to it.
