Portable offline media storage devices are never secured

Sure, it’s convenient and easy to carry around a USB drive on your keychain. It’s also easy to back up and and transport files with a USB, but think of how easy it is for that drive to slip off your key ring or out of your bag or pocket. Would you want your personal and private data laying on the ground for anyone to grab? Unsecured data storage can put you at risk of compromise.

While a USB drive might be okay for storing some simple files, it’s in your best interest to make sure you’re using a secure cloud backup solution to store and secure your most important data. IDrive is a 100% cloud-based solution that uses 256-bit AES encryption to secures your data while in storage and during transfer. Tap or click here to learn more.

Online data breaches are on the rise

From the most recent corporate data breach at Capital One to Yahoo’s massive hack, which is considered the largest data breach in U.S history, data breaches are happening at an alarming rate. You can help fight against hackers starting with how you transport and store sensitive information.

In addition to keeping your security software up to date, and always using a firewall, opting for a private encryption key is the best defense for your sensitive files and information — and could make all the difference when a hacker comes along.

A private encryption key is something only you have access to, and it is never stored on any of the IDrive servers. There isn’t even an option for a “forgot my key” or any other reset. This prevents professional hackers from attempting to gain access as a way of intercepting your account.

The private encryption tool is just one of many options in IDrive’s arsenal of high-tech protection.

Transporting unsecured, sensitive data in unprotected media devices and storing unencrypted files can be like a candy store for any cybercriminal. Everyone needs to be proactive and only use the best and most secure option to prevent data breaches. IDrive makes it easy to manage different devices and is also secure.

Now, you can be part of the fight against data breaches and use the all-in-one cloud storage solution that Kim uses and trusts. With IDrive, you can backup all your mobile devices, PCs and Macs into ONE easy to use account. Go to IDrive.com and use promo code, Kim, to save 50% on 2 TB of cloud backup now!
