Is my information that I entered into Mindjet Connect encrypted/safe on Mindjet's servers?

I want to use the connect for my self and possibly a team but it could end up having company information that should not be shared publicly. Is my information encrypted on the servers?

HI Rickey,
Sorry for the delay in responding to your question. Yes, your information is safe with Mindjet and you have complete control over who can access your information.

Let me describe a bit about how our system works so that you can better understand. When using our service we ensure that all network communications are encrypted, and that the data is physically secure in our data center which is hosted with a Tier 1 provider called Savvis / All user accounts are stored separately and therefore it is not possible for information to cross account boundaries. Again, as mentioned above, you have complete power over who can access your information. However, to answer your final question, we do not store your files in an encrypted state.

Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

No encryption of the data in your data store means that this can't be used by many people who work at companies that require data encryption. :-(

I used Thinking Space on my android an loved it. I wanted to use MindJet on my android phone and on my computer at work but, no encryption of the data on your servers means I can't use it for my day job... I wish I could ... let me know if this ever changes. .... Your data is all just blobs anyhow? Most devices support AES encryption... how about adding that to all of your clients and allow the end user to have a key they import from an external source or generate one.... I'm sure you can figure it out... Please publish when you have this feature.

I agree with Quentin. Data encryption on your servers is an important feature for most business users. Could you please give an update on Mindjet's plans to implement that?

Thanks in advance.

This is under consideration as a future capability, but we do not have an ETA at this time.

You are referring to encryption at rest correct? So data is encrypted coming and going but not while at rest in the server. What about attached files?
