Keeps your files secure using an innovative zero-knowledge encryption approach
Once you download the SpiderOak application, you are ready to back up, store, share, and access your digital life. Whether you want a safe place for your financial documents or family photos, SpiderOak will keep your files secure using our innovative zero-knowledge encryption approach. And because we store things the way you do, your digital items remain organized and easily accessible.
Our top priority is to ensure your information is always private and secure. SpiderOak utilizes the latest encryption technology to ensure your data's protection. And further, because we never store your password or the plaintext version of your encryption keys, no one but you will ever have access to the folders and files you store with SpiderOak including our staff. The only information we will ever know is how much data you are storing.
Built to perform
SpiderOak's philosophy is simple: to provide a central, permanent, and safe location for all of your digital possessions. This is precisely why we don't charge and, in fact, encourage you to download the application on as many computers as you need to feel completely protected. And there are never bandwidth restrictions or access limitations.
SpiderOak's unique versioning technology ensures that you are storing your data in the most space efficient manner possible, giving you the most storage at the least cost. As an example, imagine bowls thrown carelessly into a cupboard. Now imagine them stacked neatly together - nesting one on top of the other - creating more space for other items. The former is the way we approach storage. And as a result of this versioning technique, you will always have access to previous copies of any document, photo, or digital file that you have manipulated.
After researching the online back up, storage, and sharing industry, we were disappointed with both the technology and orientation of the product offerings. Whether the sharing functionality fell short, a lack of strong security focus, or simply confusion in using the product, these shortcomings lead to the creation of SpiderOak. While building our product, we devoted ourselves to the seven following principles:
We believe that whatever you back up and store on your SpiderOak Network should be for your eyes only. As a result, SpiderOak uses the most advanced method of protecting your data available. First, we use a series of encryption algorithms embedded throughout the software to keep your data secure. Second, we don't store your password or the plaintext of your encryption keys so at NO point can your data ever be exposed to anyone but you. It is what we call a true 'zero-knowledge environment' and it guarantees the most privacy available on the Internet.
SpiderOak automatically recognizes any new and/or edited photo, document, song, or movie and backs it up in real time without you ever having to think, wonder or worry. This automated system works quietly in the background - never slowing down applications or Internet connections.
The Central Place
Between work and home, your desktop or laptop, SpiderOak is the central place for all your valuable digital possessions. As such, we encourage users to download the SpiderOak software on as many computers as they need to ensure complete protection only being charged for the amount of storage used.
Access Anytime, Anywhere
Whether at home, on the road, or on vacation, SpiderOak will allow access to all of your stored digital items from any Internet connected device.
Share Away No Registration Required!
Share your documents, photos, or any digital possession with whomever you would like - the choice is up to you. And share freely - your guests will never be asked to register.
Fault Tolerant Design
SpiderOak was designed and implemented by engineers with a background in fault tolerant systems where an acceptable margin of error of 0.000% is standard. No matter how your hardware, operating system, or electrical power might fail, SpiderOak makes it impossible for any of those occurrences to corrupt your back up result. This is a significantly different and enhanced approach to ensure your data is always kept secure.
Versioning. Versioning1. Versioning2.
Knowing that files do get overwritten or accidentally deleted, SpiderOak created an innovative versioning technology. This allows a user to access any version of a file from inception creating an environment where nothing is ever lost.
Ultimately, in realizing these seven principles, we discovered the virtues of a network. And it is this network concept - secure, automated, flexible, and universally accessible - that we give to you in the form of SpiderOak. We hope you will enjoy all the benefits of the product and please don't hesitate to let us know how we can make it better for you in the future.
