Q: IS MY DATA SECURED ON Babbobox?

#Data Security
Instead of just using the typical single layer encryption, Babbobox employs multiple layers of AES 256-bit encryption technology to ensure the security of your files and data. Most other cloud providers typically use 2-way encryption to secure files. Nothing wrong with that, however, it also means that files can still be opened by using the "brute force" method. Babbobox encrypts files in such a way that in the very, very unlikely event that your files are compromised, your files simply cannot be opened and are totally useless to the perpetrators. Despite the complex nature of deploying multiple layers of encryption, we do feel that this methodology offers one of the best (if not the best) form of data security in the Cloud. In addition, all communications are done over SSL to complete the entire security loop.

#Application Security
On top of that, Babbobox uses our proprietary application level3-Tier Security which is targeted at User Account, Folder and File levels. Collaborate with others with "editor" or "viewer" permission and where their domain is trusted. You can also unshare or delete folders and files based on schedule (known as document expiration feature), and even enforce greater security protection to your sensitive shared folders or files with hierarchy of passwords. Read a little more HERE!

Q: HOW IS BABBOBOX DIFFERENT THAN THE OTHER CLOUD STORAGE PROVIDERS SUCH AS DROPBOX, GOOGLE DRIVE AND ONEDRIVE?

Services like Dropbox, Google Drive and OneDrive are cloud syncing tools that take files stored on your hard drive and back them up to the cloud. You're required to keep your files on your device in order to access them. In short, they are a PERSONAL file-syncing tools. However, Babbobox is much more than a file-syncing tool, it is a ENTERPRISE Document Management System (DMS) that offers a lot more functions and features (like Indexing, Search, Check In/Out of documents, Auto-Expiration and Auto-Deletion of files, 3-tier Security and many more) than just simple online storage.

Babbobox has a lot more capabilities vs. other cloud storage providers!

Babbobox is built in such a way to manage the life-cycle of a document or any file that requires some form of management (e.g. Index/Search, Collaboration, etc). Therefore, we must admit that there are probably other more suitable simple cloud storage (and many are free!) out there if one just intend to just store videos, movies, music. Babbobox's value proposition much more than that!

So why don't others provide the same capabilities too if they are so good? Simple. Because it's difficult. For example, indexing is a science in itself. 

Here are some key differences:

Q: JUST HOW POWERFUL IS OUR SEARCH ENGINE?

#1 High-speed index based search engine
Searches through millions of words across thousands of documents of multiple types in a fraction of a second.

#2 Phrase matching
Allows portions of a query to be surrounded with quotes causing the contained keywords to be treated as an exact phrase, search results will contain the words in the phrase in precise order.

#3 Smart search result summary & keyword highlighting
The search result summary is an extract of the original text showing as many of the search keywords as possible. Summary can include multiple extracts from various parts of the document when searched words are not close enough.

#4 Stemming/Lemmas - Word form variations are searched and ranked lower
Word variations are (optionally) included in the search - For example, the search term "downwards" yielded results with the same stem "downward" which were ranked lower (optional through an adjustable factor). Similarly a search for "downward" would yield results with "downwards", etc.

#5 Complex expression support; nested groups, partial matching, NOT, OR and AND
Brackets indicate grouping, "-" indicates a NOT operator, OR indicates OR logic, AND indicates AND logic (implicit when not specified). Groups can be nested to any number of levels, and may contain any legal expressions (phrases, NOT, OR, AND). Wildcards * can be used to indicate partial matches.

#6 Multiple document format indexing
Most files of common formats can be indexed for searching. (Office 97-2007+, OOXML, ODF, PDF, RTF, TXT, HTML [aspx, html, aspx, jsp...]) etc.

#7 Unicode and non English language support
Crawls and indexes pages encoded in most encodings (Unicode, UTF-8, ASCII, Cyrillic, Greek etc.) Page encoding is determined by server response or if in the page meta tags. All UI text's are localizable.
