Home Sweet Security

Sookasa was founded in 2012 by a father–son team. As more of their life and work moved to the cloud – a sort of home away from home – they realized they wanted more protection for files they stored and shared.

Sookasa is dedicated to the idea that professionals should be able to enjoy all the convenience of the cloud with all the confidence of knowing their files are secure and compliant.
