How are my emails and files safe from the bad guys, government espionage, competitors and disgruntled employees.
Your data is not on someone else’s computer
The data you send and receive is encrypted
The data on your Starkit appliance is encrypted
Data on your Starkit appliance cannot be deleted
Your data (emails, files, calls, chats) is encrypted at rest and in transit when you use Starkit. That means any unauthorized person who wants to access your data will not be able to read it.
If you are using email or cloud storage providers like Gmail or Dropbox or a provider in another country, according to the news, the NSA or any other government, pretty much has a direct line to your mailbox and files. Even if they don’t have direct access to your data, it is very easy to ask for it from your provider. For example the US government doesn’t need a warrant to access your Gmail or Dropbox account, all they need is a National Security Letter and they don’t even have to notify you.
If you host your own email and cloud storage using a Starkit software appliance, at the very least your government has to serve you a warrant to access your data. That is if the government wants to follow the Constitution which they seem to have no problem violating on a daily basis.
But, in any case, if your Starkit software appliance falls in the wrong hands, Strarkit has you covered, because all data on your appliance is encrypted and is pretty much unreadable.
In addition to the data encryption, the data on your Starkit is never destroyed or deleted, you can always recover it. This will protect you from disgruntled employees who will want to delete important company data or data that they want to hide (i.e. email communication).
