TheBrain 8 Cloud Security:
TheBrain Cloud services uses the same encryption technologies used by governments, banks and the military to keep your data from prying eyes. During synchronization, your data is transferred using SSL encryption so it is not vulnerable to interception. For data storage, RSA encryption is used on all attachments, icons and images. This server is hosted by Amazon web services.

TheBrain 9 uses a completely different architecture from TheBrain 8 and we are enhancing security as part of that transition.
TheBrain 9 servers are hosted via Microsoft Azure and not AWS.
At present, there is no facility for accessing information even by administrators without the login information. Additionally, our services agreement does not permit us to access user data for any purpose beyond providing services to the user.
- Passwords are salted and hashed using a unique-per-user salt.
- File attachments and notes are now encrypted using a 256-bit AES cipher (one of the strongest block ciphers available).
- We will put together a technical overview of security features of TheBrain 9 as we get further along or soon after the release.
