About this project

Bulletproof Security Solution for Cloud Data Storage 

Why do you need a secure, unhackable storage system for data? Because it's really more than data you're protecting. It's your life. 

Cloud-Clout is the world’s most reliable and secure cloud-powered data storage system. Period. By using the power of the cloud, Cloud-Clout separates your files into small pieces, encrypts them, and saves them on servers around the world. No hacker, government, or snooper will be able to piece them back together. Your data will be safe and totally secure. 

Cloud-Clout is designed to be easy to use and easily accessible (by only you). You can save and retrieve your digital assets anywhere in the world from any mobile device, laptop, desktop, or tablet. Focusing on the mobile experience, Cloud-Cloud will be available for Android and iOS first, and if we reach certain stretch goals we will then add on other operating systems like for Windows, Mac, etc.. .

Celebgate showed that files aren't safe from hackers. NSA leaks showed that government agencies are actively snooping around your data. And this study, shared on CNN, showed that 50% of American adults were hacked in 2014: http://money.cnn.com/2014/05/28/technology/security/hack-data-breach/

That's half of the country. Hacked. Were you one? If not, you could be a target in the future. 

That's why we developed Cloud-Clout. Right now, we have a working Android beta so our system works, but it has limited functions. In fact, you can download the Alpha version to test it out at www.cloud-clout.com. And feel free to let us know what you think as your feedback will help us to improve and deliver an even better application. 

We need your help to finish the development and bring this new cloud security innovation to life. Together we can take back our online privacy and finally have peace of mind knowing that our private documents, files, photos, and videos are completely safe from prying eyes. 

Easy. Impenetrable. Cloud-Clout.

Cloud computing has revolutionized the way we access, save, and share our data online. The days of saving our personal data just on our hard drive is not enough to meet our needs of having our information available anywhere and at anytime. Cloud drives not only solved major storage problems for people but caused a whole lot of security issues that no one has solved. 

Uncle Ben told Peter Parker, “With great power comes great responsibility”. Unfortunately, hackers and secret government agencies did not incorporate this ideology into their data mining practices. Today, hackers only need a computer, some tech skills, an energy drink, and a bag of Doritos to break into a cloud drive and steal your information. They use this information to steal your identity, open credit cards, commit fraud, and ruin your life financially. 

 Let us ask you a question”How safe do you really feel about your data on the internet?” 

 When we set out to create Cloud-Clout, our mission was to build a cloud drive that would: 

  • Keep your data safe from criminals and snooping government agencies
  • Use innovative technology, techniques, and best practices to stay one step ahead of hackers 
  • Hire the best people who are experts in network and internet security to protect your data 
  • Invest in an infrastructure that can support our customers in having a reliable service. 

We were challenged to develop a technical solution that can withstand any sophisticated and orchestrated cyber-attacks that have become so infamous in the news. In order for us to implement this type of solution this meant that we needed to think like hackers. So, we put our hoodies on and went to work in developing a system that even the best of the best cannot crack. 

We currently have a working alpha version of the Android application so we can show you how it works:

Let's give you a breakdown of how our mobile software and security system works: 

First, you upload your data and our innovative software slices up your file into smaller pieces of data.

Then we run special algorithm to encrypt these smaller pieces of data to protect your information. To ensure maximum security, we distribute these small pieces of data to different clouds located around the world to make sure that no one can access your data file. 

Whenever you need to access your files, our software then reassembles your files. With Cloud-Clout your files are always accessible.

The technology that we use to secure your files is innovative in how we combine hardware, software, Internet security, and people to work in harmony to deliver the ultimate cloud storage solution. 

We have already developed an alpha Android version of our application which is available on our website if you want to check it out. However, we need funding to finish the  final software application (for Android and iOS) as well as bring the OS for Mac and Windows to market. We have a very strong development team which consists of 7 senior developers and managers who are working full-time to bring our vision to life. Our development goals for the project are: 

  • Develop the beta version of the product within 3-4 months 
  • In 6-8 months develop the final version and a desktop version (if the funding goal for the desktop development is met)

Risks and challenges

Data storage providers are constantly making updates to their APIs and when they make these updates then we need to reconfigure our software to make sure the application interface does not break. Despite any changes to APIs with one of the data storage providers, you will always have access to your data because it is duplicated on other clouds. However, we will need to go through this routine every time until we sign agreements for cooperation with cloud storages we are using.

Another challenge is that we must make sure that our software and hardware stay up to date with the latest patches which are released by vendors. There are a lot of activities which are involved in testing each update to make sure that everything works correctly and nothing breaks. These updates pose a risk when the vendor prematurely releases a patch and an unexpected error occurs.

However, our major challenge is providing business solutions to clients who have terabytes of data which can cause a lot of demand on our networks. This challenge is multiplied by the number of clients who need these types of storage capabilities. We need to ensure that our service can meet these enormous storage demands. We already have our game plan in place to handle this type of storage needs but this is something we much take into consideration as Cloud-Clout begins to grow.
