NordSecurity’s encrypted cloud storage (opens in new tab) service NordLocker (opens in new tab) is expanding beyond consumers with the launch of its new business product aimed at protecting corporate data for organizations around the world.
NordLocker Cloud for business supports all file types and offers secure and convenient login methods including multi-factor authentication (MFA (opens in new tab)) as well as third-party logins from Google and Apple.
Just like its consumer offering, NordLocker’s new business product prevents important files from getting lost or exposed through the use of end-to-end encryption (opens in new tab) with encryption keys stored both on device and in the cloud. NordLocker Cloud for business also employs the world’s top cryptography algorithms and ciphers such as AES-256, ECC, and XChaCha20-Poly1305-IETF.

Head of product at NordLocker, Aivaras Vencevicicus explained in a press release how launching an encrypted cloud storage service for business was the next logical step forward for the company, saying:
“We introduced NordLocker as a robust file encryption tool in 2019. Since then, the product has undergone a few solid development phases and is now positioned as an end-to-end encrypted cloud storage option with a file encryption solution. It was only natural for us to move forward and launch an encrypted cloud service for business clients to offer a secure, convenient, and cost-effective way to store and manage their data.”

NordLocker Cloud for business is easy to set up and doesn’t require any additional infrastructure or advanced technical skills for organization’s deploying the company’s encrypted cloud storage solution.
