We can not deny that more and more companies are using cloud-based applications to store documents and files. The Sotware as a Service (SaaS acronym) has seen increasing demand for online applications and file storage.
Stephanie, thanks for your comments.
I believe that cryptography and timpestamping would be a part of solution to make a true validation between files stored on server and those downloaded. I think it is not just a comparison between documents but an automatized exchange of files to do this better and faster.
We are agree on this services must to be offered by cloud services providers to generate confidence on their users.
Juan, the data protection service file integrity system sounds like a plausible solution. How would the validation of a recovered file work? Would this compare the modification dates of document, just like a simple 'compare documents' tool found in most document editing software?
I wonder whether this is a system that needs to be offered by cloud service providers, or that users need to start using before uploading files (assuming cloud providers allow documents encrypted in this manner to be uploaded)... If users discover their documents have been tempered with, I'm pretty sure they would change provider, making this system work against the business interests of the providers themselves.
