VaultDrop uses a robust, patented Data Dispersal Platform (DDP) to securely and privately store your data. The DDP uses sophisticated, well-established algorithms to encrypt with AES-256 keys, fragment data, and then distribute the fragments to geographically scattered storage nodes on a series of dispersed networks. No complete copy of the original data ever exists on any single storage node anywhere in the network.
Encrypted, fragmented, and distributed across multiple networks with access controlled by you rather than us, the DDP-protected data is nothing but useless bits until it is pulled together and decrypted to make readable information.
The DDP performs the encryption and decryption, fragmenting and reuniting, and distribution and recall of user information as specified by the individual owner of the information from a control panel. The control panel allows you to set access permissions for your data. Options are to: always allow VaultDrop to access your data, provide access to VaultDrop only when you are logged in, or to never provide access or to delete all information you have stored.
Once a transaction is authorized, the relevant information passes between the DDP and VaultDrop. After the completion of a transaction, and once the data is sent back to the storage nodes, the DDP and VaultDrop’s systems both permanently delete the information, making it impossible to access the data again without explicit consent from the owner of the information.
