Multi-layer encryption

An important part of secure cloud storage

Multi-layer encryption using Synkzone

Multi-layer encryption is the process of encrypting an already encrypted file, one or several times more. This can be done either by using the same algorithm multiple times, or by using different algorithms.

Is multi-layer encryption more secure?

The purpose of using multi-layer encryption is to make an encrypted file transfer – that in theory already should be secure – even more secure. Encrypting something that has already been encrypted gives increased security.

If you are not using multi-layer encryption, your information is not as safe as it could be.

Synkzone uses a technology for sending data to servers or other users that is considerably more advanced than most other solutions. It is based on the information being encrypted and handled in a number of different ways during transfer.

When information is being sent between two points – called nodes – it is done in three layers. All based on different security solutions.

The three layers are:

  • Application layer
  • Network layer
  • Transport layer

When you first save your information, it is first encrypted in the application layer. Before being sent to the server, it is encrypted once again in the network layer. And during the transfer to the server a further layer of encryption is applied.

Your information is encrypted in several layers. It doesn’t get any safer than that.
