Symform is Heading to CES 2013

This week, Symform is in Las Vegas for the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013. CES hosts over 3,000 exhibitors and more than 150,000 attendees from 150 countries! It is a big show that has debuted products such as the camcorder back in ’81, the plasma TV in ’01 and the 3D HDTV just three years ago. Since 1967, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) has produced CES to provide a show that “reaches across global markets, connects the industry and enables CE [Consumer Electronic] innovations to grow and thrive.”

Symform will be exhibiting in the Sustainable Planet area at the Venetian Ballroom, showing our green approach to cloud storage and backup. Our decentralized, distributed system has no centralized infrastructure, which means no data center build out.  Instead, it leverages the excess capacity that already exists in all devices.

We will also be spending time with our partners, QNAP and NETGEAR, at their booths, answering questions on how to extend your network-attached device to the cloud with Symform!

“We’re very excited to be able to support both NETGEAR and QNAP at this years’ CES show. It’s a great opportunity to talk to current customers and inform those who haven’t yet tried Symform to Become the Cloud with the rest of us” said Mark Romano, Director Partner Marketing at Symform. In addition to Mark, make sure to visit Leif, Margaret, and Nic to learn more about Symform and how to connect your network attached storage device to the cloud for a second tier of data protection.

There is a lot going on at CES, so start mapping your show today with “My CES” to create your agenda and organize your activities for the show. We will be at booth 70329 in the Venetian Ballroom, be sure to add us to your agenda as well as QNAP booth 31866 and NETGEAR booth MP25445. We look forward to speaking with you at the show to learn more about your cloud storage challenges, and see how Symform can provide a solution.

    The problem with Symform is that you guys hold the keys and can decrypt data at will, or under government order.

    For the above reason alone is reason enough for people and businesses alike to avoid Symform. It’s simply not secure (no matter how pretty you attempt to paint that picture).

    • Thomas, it is very common for the cloud provider to manage the keys. Symform is considering adding an additional layer of encryption that the user could activate and manage their own keys. This would be on top of what we already do. You can vote on that idea on our feedback forum.

      In the meantime, if you are concerned about cloud security, you can always pre-encrypt your files using one of the many free or low cost encryption programs available.
