Cloud storage has become the go-to model for data storage since its sliced bread equivalent in the IT enterprise, and with it, the increasing concern of data security. I mean, why waste space on your PC, mobile phones or tablets when you can store any form of data on Google Drive, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive and others like that? However, just because this is the foremost space for data doesn’t make it Fort Knox ordinarily.
People love what they deem private to remain private, and there are others who would blackmail rice for the white on its skin. Because of these, individuals are and will continue being reluctant to give out information except when mandatory… which is almost all the time, like telecommunication services with your personal details or your bank with basically everything.
However, people want to trust to, an extent, that data handlers will keep their details safe at all cost. Hence, if you make it a necessity for individuals or companies to give you their information, then it becomes mandatory for you to protect it.
Several web data capture software promise maximum amount of affordable cloud-based storage and bandwidth, but only a handful can boast of optimum data storage security.
A secure cloud-based data storage provider should have …
- An above 90% safety plan against data leakage.
- Proper management of crypto keys.
- Tight access authorization and authentication security data sharing.
- Strong encryption of stored data and unique credentials to ensure data confidentiality even during transit.
- Tracking technology to ensure data traceability as well as a proper lockdown of deleted cryptographic data.
You may care about data security, but do your data capture app developers have that at the top of their priority list? Know that once you lose your security credibility, getting it back is almost impossible. Choose wisely.

Quarantining of non-compliant records is a check put in place to block (quarantine) registrations suspected to be fraudulent. This check minimizes fraudulent infractions by rogue users.
5. Prevention of injection of records
Injection of records to the secure servers is prevented since synchronization requests coming to the secure servers are verified before they are accepted (rejected records are saved in a separate folder on the server and are not processed). Some of the verifications done are user login details, capture device details etc. With this security feature in place, processing of fraudulent records is non-existent.
7. Root Access Detection
Rooting is the process of allowing users of smartphones, tablets and other devices running the Android mobile operating system to attain privileged control (known as root access) over various Android subsystems. When a device is rooted, a user can manipulate data on the device at will. However, Bioregistra ensures security feature on KYC is that the KYC application for Android devices cannot run on rooted Android devices.
