Microshard™ Technology eliminates data sensitivity, providing security, privacy, and compliance beyond encryption.
Here's how it works:


Your data

Your data is everywhere: applications, databases, servers. Wherever your data originates, ShardSecure acts like a native storage solution.
Data flows from applications, databases, and servers as code, text, video, image, and record files.

How it works

The ShardSecure™ Virtual Appliance can be deployed in the cloud or on-premises to ensure data security and privacy. The appliance ingests unstructured data via the RESTful API, NFS, and SMB.

Data is compressed then shredded into microshards. Microshard™ data is thoroughly mixed, poison data is added, and new shards (containers holding many microshards) equal to the number of configured storage destinations are formed.

Data is distributed following a user-set policy to multiple independent locations, which may include on-premises/datacenter or cloud storage. The appliance will reassemble microshard data whenever needed for authorized users.


Structured and unstructured data

Eliminate sensitivity of files, streaming data and databases.

Single-digit byte shard sizes

The only technology capable of shards as small as 4 bytes.

Encryption compatible

Shard before or after encrypting without disruption.

One-click migration

Move Microshard data easily between locations with one click.

Zero trust data security

Separate data from admins, employees, and cloud providers, eliminate human error and insider threat risks.

Reduce attack surface

Distributed, Microshard™ data drastically reduces available attack surface.

2-10x cloud performance gains

Streaming Microshard data can yield read, write, transfer performance improvements.

Multi-Cloud Support

The ShardSecure™ Engine is currently integrated with the top five cloud service providers including AWS, Azure, Google, IBM and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, in addition to Box and Dropbox.

Our flexible core engine can be rapidly integrated with other cloud service providers upon customer request.
