If you are afraid that a sudden accident destroys the electric grid and breaks your hardware, protecting information is quite important. One of the easiest ways to do so is to establish a backup in the cloud. There are multiple services that allow you to do it. We will take a closer look at TOP5 cloud services that are great for backups in 2020.
For a low price of $6.67, you will be able to create easily accessible cloud storage to keep your data safe from accidents. Tresorit is a company praised for its excellent service and outstanding technology. The company employs two-factor authentication in order to prevent unauthorized access as well as zero-knowledge policy meaning that your data will never be checked by the employees of the company. The data is encrypted with encryption keys safely stored on the servers.
This is one of the earliest birds in cloud technology. The prices range from $5.00 to $15.00. While the list of features may seem lacking compared to some other services, the company also has encryption of data and does not care about the contents of your storage. You receive 5GB of storage for free that can be expanded to 10TB. Sync.com can be used by owners of all operating systems aside from Linux.
The pricier option with the high-end solution priced at $72. There are many QoL features that make this service particularly convenient and easy-to-use. The lack of some features and strict encryption that will make data unrecoverable in case you lose the key or forget your personal information makes it quite inconvenient for casual users. However, if you are interested in the absolute privacy of information, IDrive might be the best choice out there.
The world of open-source, community-funded and user-oriented IT solutions is finally in reach. This service is free and gives you storage space for backups without begging for money. NextCloud can be tricky to set up especially for newbies. However, the free nature of the service and the community behind it make it an attractive option for everyone.
We can’t really say much about the technology of this service since it is not that different from other similar services. However, it has been a famous brand ever since Edward Snowden himself endorsed it a couple of years ago. Advanced encryption and zero-knowledge policy make this service as good of a choice as any other entry in our list.
