The easiest way to start using Kerika is to use any email address and sign up directly.
Use any email address you like: a company email, your Microsoft Live ID, Yahoo, Gmail – it's all good.
Enter your email and click on the green Create Account button, and you will receive a confirmation email that contains a link that you can click on to complete your sign up process.
(This helps us ensure that you are using your own email address, not someone else's.)
When you sign up directly, Kerika uses the Box Platform to safely and reliably store your files. Here's what happens behind the scenes:
Box is a reliable and secure cloud storage company, and we have been a partner of theirs for several years now.
Box has built a great reputation over the years for the reliability and security of its cloud storage service: Box is used by law firms, hospitals and governments – the kind of folks that have always been picky about security and privacy.
You can learn more about the Box Platform on their website, but here are a couple of things to note:
Instead of spraying your files all over your new Box account, Kerika puts everything inside a single folder called "Kerika.com".
Inside this folder you will find a subfolder named for your personal Kerika account. (Remember: every user gets their very own Kerika account.) And, you will find subfolders that match all the other Kerika users who have added you to their boards.
For example, if Alice is a user, and is working on boards owned by Bob and Charles, Alice's
Box account will contain folders that look like this:
As Alice creates more boards in her account, more subfolders will appear inside her Box Account, all located in Box > Kerika.com > Alice's Account
And, as Alice gets added to more boards that are owned by Bob, corresponding subfolders will get added to her Box account, like this: Box > Kerika.com > Bob's Account > Another Board
This neat arrangement of files is managed by Kerika, so everything seems to just work like magic...
