This week, Coviant Software announced the release of Diplomat Cloud Storage Community Edition which the company is offering as a free software application. The company claims that the new tool delivers OpenPGP encryption for files being transferred to cloud storage sites.
The company says that all cloud storage sites offer basic encryption of data at rest and that the Diplomat Cloud Storage Community Edition takes cloud storage to a new level with the capability to PGP-encrypt files, which adds an extra layer of data protection in-transit and at-rest.
Pam Reid, CEO, Coviant Software said:
We are excited to offer a free tool that adds PGP protection for files residing on cloud storage sites. As cloud storage sites have become more popular, they are starting to replace more traditional file transfer technologies, like FTP servers.
The new Diplomat Cloud Storage Community Edition makes cloud storage safer by adding an extra layer of PGP encryption.
Additional to PGP-encryption, features of the service include signing and verification, detailed logging of file transfer jobs, optional deletion of source files after successful transfers and optional retention of archive copies of all files transferred.
