Rakuten Drive encrypts all uploaded files and securely stores them.
Encryption during transferring
TLS encrypts* data transmitted over the web to provide high privacy. This encrypted data is mixed with unreadable characters and cannot be decrypted. An authentication process is performed between the two devices to ensure that both sending and receiving devices are real. To provide data integrity*, digital signatures are used to verify that data has not been tampered with before reaching the receiving device (receiver).
* TLS encryption: A method of securely transmitting data so that it cannot be stolen during transmission through https security
* Data integrity: maintaining accuracy, consistency, and validity of data (to check whether there is a virus in the file or not)
File storage encryption
Encrypt each file to prevent leakage of stored files. Most security issues arising from cloud servers are leaked due to server hacking, administrator mistakes, or intentions. By AES 256 encryption*, the contents of the file cannot be viewed even if the server is hacked or leaked by the administrator.
* AES 256 Encryption (Advanced Encryption Standard): An encryption method with a length of 256 bits, with the longest encryption key and the highest security.
Password & expiration date setting
When sending a file, you can safely transfer the file once more through the password setting.
You can automatically expire the file transfer without worrying about it as setting the file download expiration date. (▶ Learn more about add-ons)
All data is stored on multiple devices across at least three available areas (physically isolated locations) to be geographically separated to protect against local disasters such as fires, floods, etc., as well as external obstructions. Even if the system and storage are separated and exposed to the virus on Rakuten Drive, the storage where the files are stored is significantly less likely to be lost, by using popular storage companies’ products such as AWS and Azure, we have sufficient security for the virus.
