In 2023, nearly a quarter of all businesses currently in operation deploy a fully-remote staff, and an increasing number of staff members work hybrid schedules, and the internet has created a marketplace of widely-distributed client bases. This has created a need for responsive, secure, and powerful tools that bolster the production capabilities of distributed teams. AXEL Go is one such solution that has been built from the ground up to secure and streamline the workflow of businesses that are seeking to harness the internet to its fullest capabilities.
The internet touches everything, and nearly every single person in the world has access to it. This means that when business is conducted online, one must be careful to keep bad actors out while simplifying the process of collaborating with colleagues. The two pillars of secure collaboration are encryption and decentralization.
Encryption is the process of converting information into a code to prevent unauthorized access. We encrypt information to prevent the loss of crucial data even in the face of data breaches or in the event that a bad actor has hijacked a communication method. End-to-end encryption gives businesses additional protection when combined with password-protected link-based sharing and good digital hygiene. Many high-profile security breaches happen because a bad actor has established a method of retrieving unencrypted data while it is in transit. End-to-end encryption, then, creates an incredibly resilient barrier to data breaches by crushing a hacker’s ability to use the information they may have stolen.
Decentralization is the other method of thwarting a high-risk data breach. Most of the internet as today is “centralized.” Centralized structures rely on a single point of contact to distribute information. For example, Instagram is hosted in a handful of locations across the planet. When a single location goes down for Instagram, the service is halted for all of the users that rely on that single hosted location. Decentralization can be seen as centralization’s more robust opposite. Decentralized server structures rely on multiple hosts, each with its own backups of fragments of data. When a single decentralized server location is knocked offline or breached, a backup location can be accessed to complete the data. On the other hand, a bad actor that has access to a single server location will never have complete data and the task of retrieving enough data from other servers is so herculean it is effectively impossible.
Security should also be accessible. End-to-end encryption and decentralized storage structures should be built into an experience. When the burden of security is taken off of a user’s shoulders, time and resources can be better spent on work rather than attempting to solve security problems.
Without the right file-sharing service, collaboration can often lead to security risks or office headaches. AXEL Go blends the need for security with the tools for collaboration with tools like our simple secure fetch and built-in eSign.
By lowering the barriers to effective professional-grade security, we also lower the barriers to effective workplace collaboration. AXEL Go does this by creating simple, intuitive solutions to security. Secure fetch, for example, is a method of retrieving files with the same end-to-end encryption we provide our customers. With a single click, collaborators are able to send files directly into your personal storage without having to worry about the state of their wireless security, whether their machine has been compromised, or a myriad of other security risks that plague businesses in 2023.
AXEL Go also acts as a hub for colleagues. The shared storage space is secured no matter who is given access from anywhere on the internet. This means that remote coworkers are able to share assets and completed work in a shared work server. Their uploads are protected by our decentralized storage and professional-grade encryption, meaning that trade secrets and personally-identifying information stays secure no matter what is uploaded from any place on the planet.
