With data privacy and security being of greater concern than ever, AXEL GO was thoughtfully and intentionally designed to stand out from other services like Dropbox, Google Drive, and One Drive by providing deeper levels of data security and privacy that give total control and ownership of data back to the user.
First and foremost, our technology operates on a decentralized network, which allows for greater privacy as data passes through a single point rather than through a number of different points.
Additionally, AXEL Go offers users another level of security in the form of file encryption. For each file shared, users may choose to encrypt their data with a unique private key. For another party to retrieve the file, they must also possess the private key. As a result, a malicious party who retrieves the file from IPFS can’t do anything with it since they can’t decrypt it without the private key.
This lowers the risk of having a data breach and makes it extremely difficult for hackers and unwanted parties to obtain your personal data. It also means that users remain in ownership of their data and that users’ data remains completely private even from AXEL and it’s team members.
