New Credeon Professional Supports Multiple Encryption Keys to Provide Better File Sharing Security on Popular Cloud Services

SAN BRUNO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- One of the most secure, easy-to-use and affordable solutions for safely sharing confidential documents in the cloud, the new Professional version of Credeon announced today by Hitachi Solutions America includes support for multiple encryption keys. This allows users to assign a unique key to documents associated with a specific business function or group, providing an extra barrier against unauthorized users accidentally accessing files not intended for them.

As with the free version of Credeon, users of the Professional version simply drag-and-drop files to share encrypted documents using any of the major cloud storage services, including Box, Dropbox, Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive. It is one of the few products that allows users to easily store and share encrypted documents across multiple cloud services while maintaining complete control over who can access the files.

"A little prevention goes a long way and with Credeon Professional secure file sharing doesn't have to be complicated or break the bank. The added benefit of assigning a unique encryption key to a specific set of documents provides another layer of defense against service provider issues like link vulnerability or users accidentally inviting the wrong person to access a document," said Yuji Nakagawa, Vice President of Product Management, Security, Hitachi Solutions America.

Credeon Professional Simplifies Encryption Key Assignments with a Familiar Project Approach

The project-based interface in the new Professional version is designed to quickly manage user access and assign encryption keys to confidential files shared among work groups and larger teams. For example, a department manager might share confidential program-related files with designated team members in one Credeon Project then use a second Project that automatically generates a different encryption key to share sensitive personnel files with the human resources department. Even if the manager accidentally allows team members from the first Project to access the personnel documents in the second Project through the cloud storage service sharing features, they will not be able to open the encrypted files in the second Project.

To create a new Project and generate a new encryption key for a specific set of files or a work group, the Project Leader simply clicks the "Add Project" button in the Credeon Management Console, names the Project and lists the approved users who can access the files. The Project Leader then drops the selected files into the newly created Credeon Project folder before dragging them to the sync folder in any of the popular cloud storage services for sharing.

Authorized users can be added or removed at any time and the Project Leader has complete control over all security settings. This protects the documents from link vulnerability issues that are known to expose supposedly confidential documents to unauthorized users.

"Links to private documents stored on cloud services have been found in search results and have shown up in random pay-per-click advertising reports. Unfortunately in many cases, anyone finding these direct URLs has been able to view the confidential files. But with Credeon, only approved users listed in the Project can access the encrypted files as they sit in the cloud and any unauthenticated users that somehow mistakenly obtain the document URL remain locked out," said Nakagawa.

Credeon provides one of the highest levels of data protection and access control available in cloud-sharing encryption products by implementing three layers of security. With its unique encryption key management system, the user has total control over the encrypted files, protecting documents from unauthorized scrutiny by cloud storage service providers or other entities. Files are protected with industry-standard AES-256 bit encryption algorithms and a FIPS 140-2 certified cryptograph module.

Credeon supports Windows and Mac OS X. Encrypted files can be viewed on Apple iOS and Android mobile devices.

Affordable Business Pricing

A Professional account at $10 per month includes two Projects with two distinct encryption keys controlled by two Project Leaders and encrypted file sharing for up to 10 additional project members. As needed, additional Projects with a unique encryption key and document access for another 10 project members can be added for $10 per month each.

Credeon Basic, designed for individual use and launched in May 2013, continues to be a free service. It includes one Project encryption key, supports one Project Leader and allows encrypted file sharing for up to three project members.

Both the Basic and the Professional versions are available at www.credeon.com.
