Tresorit: Product Overview & Insight

Bottom Line 

Tresorit offers highly secure, end-to-end encryption for individuals’ and businesses’ cloud file storage. For companies that want zero-knowledge-based storage and strong access management for their files, Tresorit is a good choice.

Service Description

Tresorit provides a cloud-based file platform for data storage, sharing, and access management. It’s not only simple file storage, though: it offers data protection and administration features suited for small enterprises. Highlights include user and device management, data processing agreements, and access roles. 

Tresorit uses zero-knowledge systems, which validate data through algorithms without needing to reveal it. Tresorit is a Swiss company, and Switzerland has strict data privacy and protection laws, so Tresorit is bound by all of them. It’s also compliant with multiple regulations, including GDPR & HIPAA.

Users can choose between multiple international centers to store their data. If they don’t select one, the default storage location is Ireland. 

Tresorit doesn’t have access to user keys or data, so that in case of a breach on the servers, attackers couldn’t decrypt the data stored there. They also do not have access to user passwords and cannot unlock the storage account through them.

Folders must have some data unencrypted, which Tresorit states in its privacy policy. Tresorit also generates usage logs with data such as IP address and ID device, but those logs are only stored locally on user devices, rather than in company data centers.

Tresorit for Businesses

Tresorit’s storage system bakes in access control and some basic monitoring features, like user and device statistics and IP addresses on the software’s network. Its data protection and access management make data access easier to report for GDPR purposes. Having data encrypted while stored on company servers also improves regulatory compliance.
