Barely a day goes by when the newsfeeds do not cover another cybersecurity scare where services or companies have been hacked and vital user data is harvested by cybercriminals or nation-state hackers which is where pCloud comes into its own.
pCloud is a Swiss-based company that was started in 2013 and boasts more than eight million subscribers but it is rarely heard of in mainstream tech media.
Security is at the heart of pCloud and it hosts user data through a leading certified data centre via collocation. When using the pCloud service user’s data is transferred to its outsourced servers via TLS/SSL protocol and is copied on at least three server locations in a highly secure certified data centre in Dallas, Texas, USA. Its collocated service provider is certified for SSAE 16 SOC 1, Type II that ensures the highest level of security.
