Oppo signs on with Amazon Web Services, bringing secure storage to phone users

Oppo signs on with Amazon Web Services, bringing secure storage to phone users

Oppo has signed on with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide safer and more secure storage options for its international phone users.

In an official statement published today, Oppo said it’s able to provide its phone users with secure data storage services for keeping photos, videos, contacts, notes, and other important information in the cloud. Supporting this new endeavour is AWS’s infrastructure suite, and it’s deployed in Singapore, France, and India.

Cloud-based storage services in use are Amazon Aurora, a cloud-based relational database, and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). For security, Oppo is using AWS CloudTrail, AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS), AWS Network Firewall, AWS Certificate Manager, and AWS Artifact. 

“Oppo remains consistently focused on delivering the best possible user experience. AWS’ industry-leading cloud capabilities allow us to rapidly deploy our cloud-based services to provide users around the world with a smoother mobile experience. With the concern for a safe and secure customer experience at the forefront, AWS’ cloud security services help us further enhance the data privacy and protection of our proprietary ColorOS operating system on Oppo devices,” said David Gu, Managing Director of Oppo International Internet Business.

Features on ColourOS 11 that benefit from these new additions include Private System, Private Safe, and Personal Information Protection. The first feature lets users create a separate system account for apps and data to run independently, away from the original account. Private Safe is an encrypted area for storing data, protecting it from app access. Personal Information Protection lets users send out blank data forms to apps, allowing access to apps without disclosing personal information.

ColourOS 11 is Oppo’s proprietary reskin of Android 11.

Providing online secure storage plays into Oppo’s greater plans for gaining user trust in its products and services - which they call Trustworthy Campaign. Another example of such an effort is Oppo Premium Service, which was launched locally in April 2021.
