SpiderOak’s vision is to Secure the World’s Data.

Our goal is to reduce the complexity of the security surface to the point where it can be reasoned about, so that assumptions are few, and those that remain are well understood. This means reducing both lines of code and the number of people who must be trusted to enable secure data storage and access.

As a customer-focused company, we understand that technology alone cannot solve all problems. Products and support that work with your existing investments are required.

This is our new mission. We are a thirteen-year-old company which provides tens of thousands of businesses and consumers with best-in-class secure backup and messaging. Now with new management we have extended our expertise to deliver a whole new class of capabilities for securing shared data and managing authority.

The world is a safer place when its data is secure.

How do we intend to accomplish this? Our key innovation allows data to be stored and shared using untrusted networks and infrastructure. We use a decentralized approach to authority, integrity, and confidentiality, which combines new ideas from end to end encryption, digital ledgers, access control, and policy-based security.

Over the coming weeks and months we will discuss more about the future of our data security.
