Why We Exist
Many online platforms and web applications claim that they have implemented the necessary security measures to protect your data. And yet, data leakage plagues headlines in the media. Sometimes, it is your fault, because you have too easily accepted the terms and conditions that state clearly, and as such given consent to, the use of your data. A few obvious parties are Google and Facebook. Their security, including encryption, is indeed to protect your data from leaking to hackers, but not from them!
In other cases, it is not directly your fault. Companies can behave unethically, or be too lax in implementing strong security and privacy measures. Think of Zoom, which has been criticised for a range of privacy issues, including sending user data to Facebook and lacking appropriate encryption. Amazon has been accused of scooping up data from its own sellers to launch competing products.
Additionally, rogue government agencies cross the line by monitoring individuals across the globe such as journalists, and prosecuting advocates of freedom of speech. Do you think your data that is hosted (via a SaaS application) in the Cloud is not being monitored? Read more here. CrowdPie answers the need of many professionals for a secure file sharing and collaboration platform which could overcome these concerns.
