Bitcasa – Reliable Protection for your Files

Bitcasa pride themselves with their high-end security practices, used for their web, desktop and mobile applications.

When you upload files using the Bitcasa desktop application, your data is client-side encrypted using AES-256 bit encryption, which means that your files are secure before they even leave your computer. During this process the data is sent over a secure connection using Secure Socket Layer (SSL).

The problem with most cloud services is that the service provider employees have access to your information and your files may get in the hands of authorities and other inappropriate parties. This is not the case with Bitcasa. With its applications, your data is stored in encrypted blocks, which cannot be decrypted by the Bitcasa employees. This means no one but you can see or use your files. Data is decrypted and reconstructed only when you log in with your username and password. Your personal documents are truly personal.

Sensitive information, such as billing and account info, is stored using several layers of encryption in a segmented network with no public internet access. New encryption keys are generated on a daily basis and existing keys are rotated on a regular basis.

Bitcasa keeps multi-layer backups of all your data on multiple locations to prevent even the slightest possibility of data loss. However, if even this protection fails, the folders that you have mirrored via the desktop application will still contain copies of your files. 

With Bitcasa your privacy is protected in a very refined way, as they claim that they also employ a number of physical and electronic security measures to protect user information from unauthorized access.

However, Bitcasa warns you against using third-party applications, since those apps utilize a different kind of security, which Bitcasa cannot guarantee for. If you are not aware of their security policies, you should not use them for accessing Bitcasa.
