Cloud misconfigurations are the number one cause of data breaches in the cloud. Microsharding drastically reduces the sensitivity of data in the cloud to protect customers from the risk of security vulnerability caused by improperly configured data. ShardSecure is easy to deploy and manage with a virtual machine or as a container in the cloud, so customers can embrace the benefits of cloud knowing their data has been rendered meaningless and inaccessible to would-be hackers.
Secure File Sharing
ShardSecure makes it possible for the most security-conscious organizations to share sensitive files and documents between locations, with third parties, and on-premises with high confidence. Microsharded data is only reassembled and accessible to parties with proper access credentials.
Lower Compliance Costs
Government agencies like the New York State Department of Finance, who classes data protection as the number one threat within their jurisdiction, have begun mandating cybersecurity compliance, discouraging companies from excessive data concentration that puts them at risk for breach or loss. ShardSecure™ lowers these compliance costs, as Microshard data is broken into indiscernible bits and distributed such that it is no longer considered ‘sensitive’.
Secure Cloud Backup
Between regulatory and service requirements, the amount of data organizations are required to back up continues to skyrocket. The cloud provides rapidly scalable, flexible storage to meet those demands, but security concerns prevent organizations from embracing those benefits. By reducing data sensitivity with ShardSecure, organizations can confidently migrate backups to the cloud without fear of data breech and increased compliance costs.
“In our opinion, microsharded sensitive data is no longer sensitive. As a result, ShardSecure™ has the potential to lower cyber risks and compliance costs while maintaining compliance with the spirit of European and US data protection regulations.”
