Cryptomator now also offers a dedicated solution for collaborating with encrypted files in teams or companies. The “Cryptomator Hub” extension enables access control for Cryptomator vaults, providing the ability for other users to share files encrypted with Cryptomator without specifying the central key for those files.
Cryptomator Hub also works as a fully end-to-end encrypted solution for storing files on any cloud server and only replaces the central vault password with access control. Individual access to the vaults is secured by server-side authentication and key management. To delve deeper into the associated zero-knowledge security concept, click here for GitHub.
Cryptomator Hub is free to use with a team size of up to five people. Additional users will be charged a license fee of 6 euros per month with annual payment.
Cryptomator as a user-friendly security tool
Cryptomator itself can be loaded and used for free. The software sees itself as a simple tool for users who want to maintain control over their data stored on cloud servers. The process of encrypting and decrypting the files should be as simple as possible. As a user, you only assign a password to a folder, which Cryptomator then encrypts according to high standards.
To access the data, one enters the password again and is then provided with a virtual encrypted disk, which can be used to use, modify or add new documents stored in the Cryptomator vault.
Cryptomator itself is open source and, according to its developers, is regularly monitored by independent security researchers. Bonn-based Skymatic GmbH is behind the application.
