The current wave of data breaches has brought attention to encryption and how it might help safeguard sensitive data. Zero-knowledge encryption is the most promising form, as it provides more security with less computing cost than standard secret-key cryptography like RSA or Diffie-Hellman techniques. Because the encrypted data cannot be decrypted without the secret key, zero-knowledge encryption preserves privacy even when employed insecurely.
In a nutshell, Zero-knowledge encryption means that cloud storage or backup providers have no knowledge of the data you save on their servers (i.e., they have “zero-knowledge”). It secures data by ensuring that no one else knows the password, encryption key, or, more significantly, what has been chosen to be encrypted. The password is only visible to those with the keys to the data who can access it at this degree of protection. Even the organisation that provides you with zero-knowledge encryption is unable to access your data.
Zero-knowledge encryption is a method of encrypting data in a cloud service where only you have access to the encryption key, making it impossible for others to decipher it. When it comes to online file storage, zero-knowledge cloud storage is the only way to ensure that your information is completely secure. It's even safer than using an external hard disc (they tend to break down or get lost). A damaging data breach becomes nearly impossible: both the cloud provider and your encryption solution must be compromised simultaneously. The possibilities of a data breach are nil because all of your information is only available in encrypted mode at the encryption solution provider.
Pros and Cons
Like any other form of technology, zero-knowledge has its own pros and cons.
To keep sensitive data safe, AxCrypt employs Zero-Knowledge protocols. It guarantees that with us service is protected by Zero-Knowledge encryption wherever you access it, including your browser. It's nearly impossible for anyone to get a hold of your personal documents. No one else, including AxCrypt administrators, has access to your key.
