The DuroSoft Mission
Our goal is to create high quality, high security software that enhances and protects consumer privacy, pushes the boundaries of what can be achieved with computing, and changes the world for the better. In particular, we strive towards a world where governments work hand-in-hand with the tech industry to protect our basic human rights and privacy, and consider these rights to be unwavering and inviolable, even in the face of so-called "threats" to national security.
In early 2015, appalled by the magnitude of the then-recent Snowden revelations, and disappointed by the general lack of client-side encrypted, scalable cloud storage solutions, computer scientist Sam Kelly and cyber-security expert Matthew Johnson set out together to create an end-to-end encrypted storage system that could exist in Google's cloud network without exposing data to anyone but the account keyholder. Fast-foward a year, and DuroCloud was born.
