Over two-thirds (68 million) of Dropbox customer email addresses were stolen in 2012 – what they failed to report, until recently, is that their user passwords were also hacked and have recently been leaked online. In the wake of this new finding, customers have been notified to update their account passwords if they had not done so since the 2012 incident. While the majority of passwords maintained high encryption standards, it’s been reported that many others had lower-level security encryption and can be easily cracked and exposed to wrongdoers.
Engeneum (http://www.engeneum.com), a UK-based data storage, sharing and collaboration solution within the business-to-business market, is providing a limited time offer for all individual Dropbox users to switch over to their business-grade security platform at no cost. Business users should contact the sales team for a low cost transfer proposal. Not dissimilar from Dropbox, Engeneum offers multi-format data storage – everything from video and audio to Word documents and photos – with value-added features such as user-specific viewing/sharing using browser technology all within a UK-based ISO 27001 certified data center.
Engeneum has recently undergone a business transformation – switching from a traditional document capture, and archival business to a SaaS platform transforming all types of business processes to seamlessly connect data – and rebrand and welcomes the opportunity for individuals to use their service in the wake of Dropbox’s well-known security failure.
“We understand how precious our digital assets are – in business and personally” says Chris Haden, CEO of Engeneum. “At Engeneum, we pride ourselves in maintaining the highest levels of security awarded within the UK and invite all Dropbox users affected by the hacking incident to switch over to our service at no cost for the first year. Individuals using Dropbox should not have to pay to know their data is safe – it should be an inherent feature within their chosen storage provider’s product.”
Engeneum for business is a powerful, scalable, hosted solution that operates centrally, or across multiple departments for quality and auditable collaboration both internally and externally. Engeneum facilitates human resource departments to securely validate their candidate’s credentials to comply with immigration laws; finance teams to share information with specific audiences – individuals, groups, and other businesses; compliance managers to audit workflows for quality assurance; and many other practical applications.
