Secure Backup to Amazon S3

Security is one of the major concerns of cloud storage users. Quite often it is one of the factor of whether or not to use a cloud storage and its related product. There are many benefits to backing up your data to Amazon S3, but how can users be sure that hackers, service provider employees or anyone else can’t look at their files after they’re backed up online?
