Cryptoloc Cloud

Cryptoloc Cloud is secure cloud based electronic data management solution (EDMS). Cryptoloc Cloud enables you to store, share and send your documents securely and request and receive digital signatures without the risk your information being intercepted. Powered by Cryptoloc’s patented three key encryption technology it is one of the world’s most secure cloud based solutions.

Cryptoloc Cloud uses Cryptoloc Technology a unique and patented encryption process that provides unmatched security and integrity for every document.
Privacy and Control — Cryptoloc Cloud uses client-side cryptography, this means your documents are always encrypted before uploading to Cryptoloc Cloud and cannot be viewed by unauthorised parties-not even by Cryptoloc.
Eliminate identify fraud — With our Multi-Factor Authentication, no one can sign, or access your documents, without their identity being verified.
Share with confidence — Choose who can access your documents and grant permission levels. You control who can update, sign or view documents.
Full Audit and Version Control — A legal time and date stamp audit trail records every time someone receives, updates, views or signs your documents. You are automatically notified to ensure changes don’t go unnoticed.
Auto-share if something happens to you — Our Data Legacy feature automatically gives nominated people access to certain documents if you die or are permanently incapacitated. Our Cryptoloc Technology protects and preserves your information by ensuring original documents cannot be altered.

Cryptoloc Technology is our patented encryption technology that combines three different encryption algorithms (AES-256, RSA-4096 and RSA OAEP) in one process. What makes Cryptoloc’s Technology unique is it generates three keys and encrypts every single file separately, this offers significant security advantages over the encryption of other providers. With Cryptoloc Technology your data is encrypted both at rest and in transit and our Zero Knowledge Protocols means no one, including Cryptoloc can access your data other than you.
If you wish to find out more about our Cryptoloc Technology refer to our Cryptoloc Security Whitepaper on our website.

You can now use Cryptoloc Cloud on the following devices:

  • Windows PC (using Edge, Google Chrome, Firefox and Brave Browsers)
  • Mac (Google Chrome, Firefox and Brave Browsers)
  • Android and iOS mobile devices

For your security, please keep your browser software up to date.
Once you have recovered your account, remember to save a copy of your Private Key. You can download our Cryptoloc Cloud mobile app and transfer a copy of your Private Key over. If you lose your Private Key in the future, you will be able to retrieve it from your Cryptoloc Cloud app.

We use AWS cloud computing infrastructure to store your data. Users can select from several locations and we recommend selecting the geographic location closest to their location.

You can safely store, update, share, and legally sign any type of digital file format.
Examples include Contracts, Wills and other legal documents; Superannuation and Insurance policies; Powers of Attorney and funeral plans; Family photos, passwords, letters; Tax returns and other financial documents; Trust deeds, Share portfolios and many others.
The list is endless! You will have peace of mind knowing your documents are protected by our advanced Cryptoloc encryption technology

Signing documents via Cryptoloc Cloud complies with electronic signature laws worldwide and is valid and legally enforceable as an equivalent to a signed paper contract. Our digital signatures are compliant with the UETA and ESign Act (United States), UECA (Canada), the European Union’s VAT Directive and similar Electronic Transactions Acts in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, South Africa, China and many more.

Data Legacy is a feature of our Personal Plans that allows you to bequeath access to data within your cloud. You create a Data Legacy by granting your Nominee, such as a loved one, friend or executor access to part of your Cryptoloc Cloud. Nominees are granted access only after a confirmed Trigger Event, such as Death, Incapacity or Liquidation, takes place AND the event is verified by Cryptoloc.
You can change who has access to your Data Legacy at any time.
A Nominee needs to have a Cryptoloc Cloud account.

A nominee is a person you have selected to be able to access data within your Cloud on the confirmation of a Trigger Event. For example, you may have nominated your Executor to access your will which you have stored in your cloud on the confirmation of your death.
Nominee’s must have a Cryptoloc Cloud account.

A verified account is an account where Cryptoloc has verified the identity of the account owner. To verify an account the owner must supply Cryptoloc with specific documentation which validates their identity. Account holders who nominate other users must have their account verified. How to verify your account is covered in the How Do I section of the FAQ’s.

A Trigger Event is the event which Cryptoloc must verify before your information is released to your chosen Nominees. For example, Death, Incapacity and Liquidation are all Trigger Events available in Cryptoloc Cloud.

Document management is a business account feature useful in instances where you have multiple people working on the same file. Document management enables users to check out files to make updates and whilst the file is checked out other users cannot checkout or update the file. This reduces the risk of multiple users making conflicting changes to a file.

Cryptoloc Cloud’s Workflow is a feature that enables you to stay on top of your day-to-day tasks and manage your business processes. With Cryptoloc Cloud’s Workflow you can break down any process into a series of simple tasks, assign these tasks to individuals and then monitor the progress via notifications from the system.
How to use Workflow and other features of you Crytpoloc Cloud is covered in the ‘How to Use your Cryptoloc Cloud Video’ available in the Resources section of the Cryptoloc Cloud website under Knowledge Centre.

Our SecureShare feature allows you to securely share documents and request digital signatures using Cryptoloc Technology with people who don’t have a Cryptoloc Cloud account. How to use Workflow and other features of you Crytpoloc Cloud is covered in the ‘How to Use your Cryptoloc Cloud Video’ available in the Resources section of the Cryptoloc Cloud website under Knowledge Centre.

SecureShare enables you to share files using Cryptoloc’s Technology to people who don’t have a Cryptoloc Cloud account.
This means that you can still send a document or request digital signatures securely to contacts who don’t have a Cryptoloc Cloud. SecureShare ensures that the documents won’t be intercepted or read by anyone other than the intended party.

Cryptoloc Cloud protects every SecureShare with a unique temporary Private Key using its patented Cryptoloc Technology.
SecureShare works by sending a link to the recipient’s email address which includes part of this unique Private Key. Cryptoloc Cloud stores the remaining part of this key for use only after the recipient’s identity has been verified.
After the recipient opens the link an SMS access code is sent to their mobile number. They must enter this access code to verify their identity. Cryptoloc Cloud then combines both parts of the SecureShare Private Key to unlock access to your shared file, making it available to download and sign.

Personal plans are recommended for situations where a single user wishes to securely store personal information. Our Personal plans enable users to create a Data Legacy whereby they can nominate a person (such as a Trustee) to be granted access to their data in the event of a Trigger Event.
Business plans enable teams to be established and are recommended for situations where multiple users are required to access and share information. Our Business plans through the Document Management feature enables users to check out files eliminating the risk of multiple users making conflicting changes to a file.

Your referral code is a unique identifier for your account. Even if your account is marked hidden, other users will still be able to search for you using your referral code.

Before using your Cryptoloc Cloud we recommend you configure it with some useful applications.
To assist you we’ve developed some helpful videos which will not only demonstrate how to configure your Cryptoloc Cloud but also all the key features and benefits.
The videos are located in the Knowledge Centre under the Resources menu on the website.
Our Support FAQ section will also provide you with answers to many common questions and you can find this by clicking on your name located in the top right-hand corner of the Cloud.
If you get really stuck you can always submit a support request.

Your Private Key is a unique digital security key (in the form of a file) automatically created on your device when you join Cryptoloc Cloud. Your key is required whenever you access or share your files.
Always ensure you keep a backup copy, export your Private Key to your mobile device and NEVER share it with anyone.

How to export your Private Key to your device.

  1. Log in into your Cloud and click on your ‘ACCOUNT NAME’ in the top right hand corner.
  2. Click ‘Manage Private Key’.
  3. Select ‘Transport to Mobile App’ and enter your password.
  4. A one-time verification code will be generated.
  5. Log in to the Crytpoloc Cloud Mobile App on your device.
  6. Press the ‘Transport your Private Key Here’ button.
    Enter the verification code and click the ‘RECEIVE’ key.

A backup copy of your Private Key has now been stored on your mobile device.

How to back up your Private Key is also covered in the ‘Configuring your Cloud Video’ available in the Resources section of the Cryptoloc Cloud website under Knowledge Centre.
Cryptoloc recommends you backup (export) your Private Key to both your mobile device, and a USB that can be stored in a secure location. This way if you lose your Private Key you can export it back from your mobile or retrieve a copy from the USB.
Remember to never give anyone your Private Key or password or store your Private Key and password together.

If you have forgotten your password or lost your Private Key, go to the Cryptoloc Cloud login page and click on “Cannot login? Account Recovery”. You will then be able to regenerate a new Private Key and new password by following the recovery process, fees apply.

The Account Recovery fee ($15) covers administration costs in verifying your account internally, as well as obtaining approval and verification from your trusted Escrow Agent.

An Escrow Agent is an independent legal third party linked to all Cryptoloc Cloud accounts. With traditional encryption, if you lose your key, you lose access to all your information forever. Additionally, with traditional encryption solutions if a cyber-criminal gets access to your key, they gain access to all your data.
Cryptoloc’s advantage is our Escrow Agent feature, which ensures that even if you lose your key you never lose access to the files you store with Cryptoloc Cloud as the Escrow Agent is able to recover your access should you require an Account Recovery. And with Cryptoloc’s encryption process even if a cyber-criminal gets hold of your key, they still can’t access your files.

It is important to note that the Escrow Agent can NEVER access your files. Their only function is to recover YOUR part of the Cryptoloc Security protecting your files.

If you lose your password or Private Key, you can recover your account using the Account Recovery link on the login page.
Please note that Account Recovery will require the creation of a new Private Key and will incur an Account Recovery fee.
Once you submit an Account Recovery request you will not be able to access your account until the recovery has been processed.
The Account Recovery process will create a new Private Key on your device and ask you to create a new password.
For your security, NEVER give your password or Private Key to anyone, ALWAYS store a backup securely and export your Private Key to your mobile device.

Your browser will remember the last location of your key. If you are using a different account or you have just recovered your account through an Account Recovery process, you will need to click on ‘Use ANOTHER PRIVATE KEY’ and select the correct Private Key.

No, recoveries for Team accounts follow the Account Recovery process covered previously.

Cryptoloc Secure2Client

Secure2Client is a Managed File Transfer solution that facilitates the secure transfer of data from one computer to another. Built using Cryptoloc’s patented encryption technology, Secure2Client enables you to send encrypted documents and request digital signatures to clients and third parties without the need to create user accounts on a web portal.

Managed File Transfer (MFT) solutions use industry-standard network protocols and encryption to offer a significantly more secure method of transferring data than alternative solutions such as traditional File Transfer Protocol and HTTP. MFT solutions can automate and transfer data across your network, systems, applications, supply chains and cloud environments from a central point.

As the transfer of files and information between organisations continues to grow, many businesses are struggling to meet their legal obligations in relation to data protection. Information can easily be sent to the wrong recipient, stored in the wrong location or shared in a non-secure application. Organisations can minimize this potential risk exposure by implementing a MFT solution such as Secure2Client.

Cryptoloc Secure2Client allows you to share documents securely without breaking the protection barrier of encryption. Traditionally people send and share documents via email however email is the most easily intercepted and vulnerable method of sharing information and the leading cause of ransomware attacks. Cryptoloc Secure2Client eliminates the associated risk of email by utilising Cryptoloc’s patented encryption technology to encrypt the document and data contained within. Secure2Client utilises Cryptoloc’s zero knowledge encryption technology, meaning that only the recipient can access the information and each shared document and version has an audit trail so you can see who and when the accessed the file.

  • Auditing and Reporting – Audit logs ensure complete transparency, enabling you to monitor activity across your environment for all movement of files.
  • MFA – multi-factor authentication ensures only the intended recipient can access the information.
  • Cloud Support – cloud deployment enables you to secure file transfers, no matter where those files reside and being hosted on Amazon Web Services offers operational flexibility and scalability.
  • Secure Delivery – send files with confidence with full end-to-end encryption to the recipient.
  • Extensive Security Controls – Cryptoloc’s patented encryption technology assists businesses with the compliance requirements. 
  • Digital Signature – request and receive legally binding digital signatures from clients.

Cryptoloc Secure2Client is an API available on AWS Marketplace to integrate with your applications via HTTPS. As Secure2Client is a Software as a Service (SaaS) API it easily integrates with your existing applications and as a fully hosted service, eliminates costly infrastructure of software updates.

Cryptoloc Secure2Client can be used for any application where the secure sharing of files is required between two parties. Secure2Client offers a fast, secure and reliable file transfer solution. Any file type of any size can be transferred using Secure2Client.

Through Cryptoloc’s Secure2Client you can request and receive fully admissible digital signature certificates that are legally binding. Crytpoloc’s technology guarantees the verification and integrity of the document.

Compromised emails represent one of the biggest cyber security risks for an organisation and are the leading cause of ransomware attacks. A compromised email can come from an authorized source and enable cyber criminals to get access to your system where they can remain undetected, collecting data, issuing fake invoices, intercepting payments and more.
Secure2Client enables you to send and share data securely using our patented encryption technology, ensuring that cyber criminals are both unable to access the information or compromise the transfer.
As a secure managed file transfer solution, Secure2Client can significantly reduce the risk associated with non-secure alternatives.

Cryptoloc QA

  1. A QR code is generated for each product or batch manufactured. You add that code to your product or packaging.
  2. Your customer or distributor scans the QA code using a free smartphone app or direct software/website integration.
  3. QA tells your customer or distributor if the product is genuine or not and if it has been recalled.
  4. If a fake, compromised or invalid code is scanned, you are instantly notified and made aware of the exact geolocation of where the scan took place.
  5. This helps you to both identify the spread of counterfeit goods as well as take immediate action against someone who may be attempting to copy or counterfeit a code.

Cryptoloc QA is a solution that prevents and detects counterfeit items reaching customers. Utilising QR codes that contain unique embedded identifiers, a number of algorithms report in real time enabling companies to monitor their supply chain, protecting their brand reputation and capturing lost revenue.

With Cryptoloc QA every code has information specific to that particular item itself embedded into the code. The QA code can contain any form of data such as a serial number, batch number, manufacturing date, expiry date, and more. The data is encrypted using Cryptoloc’s patented technology and a unique hash (QA code is generated). It’s like giving every item its own fingerprint.

Cryptoloc QA uses industry-standard QR code formats. This ensures that the solution integrates seamlessly with already established manufacturing and printing processes. The QA codes can be scanned by any normal scanning device or a mobile phone. QR codes are also a format that your customers are familiar with and by simply downloading the Cryptoloc QA App to their phone, they can verify the authenticity of the product they are purchasing.

Cryptoloc QA uses an App for security purposes as links are too insecure and prone to being replicated by cyber criminals.

Cryptoloc QA can be applied to any single product, a carton of products, a pallet of products, a batch of products or a shipment of products. It can also be applied to paperwork such as a Bill of Lading or Air Waybill, to verify the authenticity of a document. 

Cryptoloc QA has been designed for all industrial processes, from small run items through to fast moving consumer goods. Cryptoloc QA codes can be applied directly to packaging or directly to the product and through a number of formats from ink jet, thermal print, silk screen, litho print, laser CNC printed/etched and self-adhesive labels. Cryptoloc QA can also be used with other technologies including RFID, Electronic Article Surveillance and more.

There are two methods through which the codes can be generated:

    • Direct Integration
      Your supply chain, CAD or CAM software communicates with our secure servers to request and receive new codes. This is suitable for production runs of all sizes.
    • Manual Generation
      You can manually create new codes using a Secure Web Portal, ideal for production runs where a batch number and/or manufacturing/expiry date is the only identifier used. New codes can then be exported in CSV format.

Cryptoloc QA has advanced counterfeit detection algorithms that can determine if a code has been compromised or if a counterfeiter is attempting to duplicate a QA code.

The two main detection factors are:

  • Geolocation – Identifies if a code has been compromised by analysing the location of scans.
  • Multi-Scan – Identifies if a code has been compromised by analysing the number of scans.

The information is accessed through the Cryptoloc QA Web Portal, which reports in real time suspect/compromised codes.

Cryptoloc QA has a volume-based pricing model.

Customers simply download the Cryptoloc QA product and scan the code using their mobile device. They will then be instantly notified if the product is genuine or suspect.

Yes, the Cryptoloc QA App can be customised with a manufacturer’s branding. There is an additional cost for this service.
