How Our Choice of Cloud Servers Make Your Video Secure
How Our Choice of Cloud Servers
Make Your Video Secure
In a day and age where anything can be hacked within a few strokes of a keyboard, privacy and security are of the utmost importance when it comes to your information. In 2018 alone, there were hundreds of cyberattacks affecting hundreds of millions of people globally. As the leading pioneers in Hidden Surveillance and Security, we wanted to be able to provide an ultra-secure hidden surveillance cloud video recording system with a multi-layer password protection to hinder any chance of tampering. After years in the making, a few developers later, our vision for a cloud video recording system came to fruition. SG Home Cloud is the first covert video cloud system and proudly launched in August of 2018.
Building a data infrastructure on local servers is very expensive to start from scratch. It takes a lot of money, expertise, security, machines, housing and manpower to keep systems current and up to task that’s when a business has to decide what option is right for them. That’s why we and millions of others have cut costs and left that to cloud computing services hosted offsite and accessed through the internet. There are a lot of cloud solutions out there from foreign to domestic. The first thing we required was a domestic server that provided a powerful, flexible and secure cloud computing solution for everyone. Data breaches were a problem we found with foreign servers. Being in the industry we are, we’ve seen and sampled a lot of the smart home products that are made in China, such as thermostats, lock keypads, doorbells and cameras that are vulnerable to cyberattacks. These App based products are using foreign wireless or peer-to-peer networks that are easy to manipulate, expose your private information and gain access to your private networks.
The main five cloud platform solutions to choose from were, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud and Alibaba Cloud. We decided to go with Amazon Web Services (AWS), which has been leading the way since 2004 in the Cloud Computing Industry and holds a 35% Market Share. While other companies have gotten into the game and are close in comparison, everyone’s requirements are different, their services don’t always provide the quality and flexibility you need for your organization. Amazon provides all encompassed web services to millions of clients including individuals, companies and governments worldwide. It’s easy to make adjustments to our infrastructure; we have the ability to upgrade or downgrade as needed to stay in the forefront of our industry and pay only for what we are using. This allows for us to provide an easy accessible and affordable cloud camera subscription without all the extra overhead costs. Amazon Web Services puts cloud security as its’ highest priority. Their data centers and network structure were built to meet the requirements of the most security-sensitive organizations such as the CIA, FBI and other foreign agencies and governments. In addition, the built in app multi-layer account protection in our App, Amazon Web Services hosting increases our defense of your protected data.
We wanted to build something that had an extra line of security for our app login, cameras and storage files to minimize the prospect of your information getting into the hands of cybercriminals. Your SG Home Cloud videos are stored with complete autonomy, no one is reviewing footage, unless you’ve shared access with another user your footage is for your eyes only, the servers only have a record of the usernames and history, and the actual footage is unavailable. If your subscription lapses or you discontinue service, all your stored cloud data is erased. We felt this would give our customers peace of mind, knowing you won’t have to worry about your information or videos exchanging hands.
