As a hosting company we have gathered a busload of information over the years that are pretty much confidential. This information includes code, graphics, ERD diagrams, SEO strategies and so much more. As our company expanded, we have now reached a point where we need to store this information for the entire company to access. However, the employees of the company (less than 10) are all in different countries (with 2 at most in the same cities).
We need to store this information online so everyone can access it. A wiki came to mind as the best solution, but to be honest, as secure as our servers are, I'd rather host it completely seperate from our hosting servers and getting a dedicated server account just for these purposes seem a bit extreme.
So my question is: how do others store intellectual property online and should things like code be stored online, or rather archived on a laptop? My particular concern is, if we put all the passwords to all our servers online, and someone gets in, not only do they have access to everything from bank accounts, to servers, but they know exactly how we do business and could sell this information to our competition, or just copy us or intercept our plans.
Any ideas or am I being paranoid?
