(The Hosting News) – Google on Thursday announced that it had added server-side encryption to its cloud storage platform – a move that provides users with an extra layer of security.
“Our goal is to make securing your data as painless as possible,” stated Google’s Dave Barth, Product Manager, via the company’s Cloud Platform blog.
“To help, Google Cloud Storage now automatically encrypts all data before it is written to disk, at no additional charge. There is no setup or configuration required, no need to modify the way you access the service and no visible performance impact. The data is automatically and transparently decrypted when read by an authorized user,” continued the post.
New data via Cloud Storage has already been set to server-side encryption while the tech giant is expected to deliver the feature for older objects in the near future.
Google also emphasized the feature “frees” users from having to managing their own encryption and decryption keys – something that sets aside both hassle and risk.
The company’s Cloud Storage platform delivers on things like unlimited storage, “fast” data access along with what the company says is a “reliable” infrastructure.
