One of the great concerns that any type of user may have when uploading their documents to the Internet is the security of the servers where they are stored. Currently there are many options such as Google Drive or iCloud Drive, but none guarantee maximum security. To do this, the company of the well-known email service that set out to put an end to Gmail, Proton Mail, has officially launched the Proton Drive service with cloud encryption.
As reported by Proton, digital documents contain a lot of confidential information, whether of banking or tax interest. That is why local storage can be used to avoid this risk, sacrificing the convenience of having the files on any device. In this way, the proposed solution is to use Proton Drive which will offer you the possibility to store them securely with end-to-end encryption.
An ideal encryption system for your documents
In this case, Proton Drive has an end-to-end encryption system that provides total security. All these have a cryptographic signature on all files and folders to prevent them from being tampered with in an unauthorized manner. Also, the key to be able to decrypt these files is only going to be yours, since not even Proton is going to be able to decrypt them.
the headquarters of the servers are located in Geneva (Switzerland). Although it seems silly, it is really important as the documents are protected by Swiss privacy laws, which are really strict when it comes to dissemination. In this case, they try to resemble the data vault that a Swiss bank has and which is difficult to access, even if there is a court order.
You will be able to access all these features through different ways: application on Android and iOS, as well as in the web version. In this way, it makes it accessible for anyone to freely upload documents from any device and also access them. And all this with the maximum security possible.
Price of this plan
Keep in mind that with Proton Drive you have a free base storage of 1 GB. These will allow you to upload mainly important PDF files that have a reduced size, but that may be insufficient. That is why you can use one of the other two plans that are available:
- DrivePlus: At a price of 3.99 euros per month, you will have access to 200 GB of storage with full end-to-end encryption.
- Proton Unlimited: a storage of 500 GB in the cloud for 9.99 euros per month, also adding the rest of Proton products (Mail, Calendar, VPN and SimpleLogin).
