    Founder story - NefCloud, established in 2020 by Horacio Santoyo in Los Angeles, CA, originated as a graduate project at Cal State University Dominguez Hills.
    It is a cloud file storage application designed with a specific emphasis on security and file encryption.

    Horacio, motivated by his semester-long project and four years of acquired skills, chose to follow his passion for technology, web design, and programming. This led to the ongoing development of the NefCloud project, which places a strong emphasis on cybersecurity, prioritizing user privacy and security since its inception.
