Lockbox is private by design. Our approach raises the security and privacy bar in “cloud” computing by incorporating best-in-class capabilities such as strong credentials, electronic keys, digital signatures and end-to-end encryption.
In essence we provide secure cloud storage that is simple and easy to use. The following sections describe the Lockbox features, operations and components in more detail.
The Lockbox approach is winning favour with customers who have been reluctant to "move to the cloud" because of concerns about privacy. Understandably, cloud computing introduces risks in that the cloud provider has mechanisms to override user controls and access user data.
Platform and Architecture
The Lockbox platform ensures total privacy by performing encryption and generating encryption keys on the “client-side,” that is, on your office computers. This way, unencrypted files are never sent over the Internet, enabling data to be safely sent to and stored in any geographic location. Encryption keys are sent directly to clients, so no one, not even Lockbox, ever has access to them.
Privacy and Security
Lockbox brings together the best of two worlds, the low-cost, availability, flexibility, and convenience of public clouds, and all the security, privacy, and control of peer-to-peer interactions. Lockbox makes use of best-in-class security features (strong credentials, encryption, digital signatures, mutual SSL, etc.) and follows all major federal and cryptographic standards.
Lockbox is engineered to raise the bar on the “status quo” of the secure file-sharing and collaboration industry. We believe that good security and privacy does not need to be “given away” in order to get convenience and ease of use. This section describes how Lockbox has “gone the extra mile” by utilising stronger security and privacy foundations than is common in the industry.
