Users are always highly concerned with the information security of cloud services, and the security issue is real as recently there have been online news reports on frequent user information leakages resulting from cloud hacking. In response to the issue and related concerns, ASUS WebStorage has been strengthening its information security initiatives for several years, serving millions members around the world now. These initiatives include dynamic One Time Password (OTP) for user log-in, Login History, double encryption by the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) during data transmission, online virus scan protection, and ISO 27001 accredited to the ASUS Cloud management team. ASUS WebStorage members can always rest assured of the tightest security and most reliable service that ASUS WebStorage is strongly committed to.
Double protection by encryption and virus scan during data transmission
ASUS Cloud provides not only a highly available system architecture including sturdy servers and routers, uninterrupted network connectivity and power supply, as well as secured data storage, but also RAID 6, i.e., independent data disks with two independent distributed parity schemes, to protect the data that members store on WebStorage. Equally important includes the encryption and virus scan protection during data transmission to prevent data interception. Accordingly, ASUS WebStorage has SSL implemented while all data before uploading are encrypted based on the principles of AES used by the US Department of Defense. As a result, ASUS WebStorage members are carefree of sharing with everyone the data uploaded by them. The online virus scan provided by ASUS WebStorage alerts users as soon as any virus is identified while quarantining the files that may be subject to infection.
Strengthened identity authentication to prevent unauthorized account use
ASUS WebStorage OTP, which subscribes to the world-renowned identification and authentication service provided by Symantec, enables users to enjoy advanced protection after password activation easily made by cell phones, i.e., upon ASUS WebStorage account log-in, a user can input a dynamic password shown by the cell phone in addition to the default password and account in order to enable double authentication and thoroughly prevent any data leakage. A six-digit, dynamic password is generated in every 30 seconds, and each dynamic password is briefly valid only once to effectively provide protection against identity hacking. Such a tight protection mechanism provides the most secure cloud storage space to ASUS WebStorage members.
Moreover, Login History of ASUS WebStorage always enables checking users’ latest IP locations as well as latest log-ins to promptly identify any unauthorized account use.
Note: ASUS WebStorage OTP is the service exclusively for paying users of ASUS WebStorage. Subscribe to ASUS WebStorage right now to enjoy enhanced security protection.
