I agree with you on the terms of being quick and easy, but not so much on the secure part.

How can I be sure that you guys won't read my data?

If I upload files where my sensitive data is stored in plain text everybody with access to your servers can just read those files.

Your information is 100% secure. It's stored off site on Amazon S3 servers. We don't even have access to them. The data is encrypted as its uploaded so no worries of anyone intercepting with a packet sniffer either. Give us a try, and find out. We also have great tech support.
