We’re SpiderOak &
We Value Privacy

Since the beginning we have made a commitment to building privacy-oriented technologies. With privacy comes inherent challenges but we view all of these challenges as an opportunity to recommit to our core values. SpiderOak believes that everyone has the right to privacy.

The SpiderOak Story

In the beginning, we were interested in dispelling the myth that once data went online it could no longer be private. It was more of an academic problem to solve than a commercial solution. Through this initial pursuit, the foundation of SpiderOak was laid. Ethan Oberman and Alan Fairless launched the company in 2007. The 'Zero-Knowledge' privacy cloud technology provider was born, offering a central, private place for data to live, free from surveilance by private and public entities. It was important to encompass all data, from Mac to Windows, Linux server to network volume regardless of size. Users are now empowered to share, sync and back up their data without compromising privacy.
