Data security and compliance

Our Microshard™ technology effectively desensitizes sensitive data in a three-step process to shred, mix, and distribute your unstructured and structured data across multiple cloud storage locations of your choosing. This includes multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud environments. The major benefit for you is that you never lose control of your data and that your data is unintelligible and of no value to unauthorized users.


Data sovereignty and compliance

Businesses today find themselves subject to a growing number of jurisdictional data privacy regulations with varied requirements. At times, these regulations are contradictory to one another putting businesses in a difficult situation to protect data and stay compliant. Microsharding sensitive data helps you maintain control of your data in the cloud, regardless of where it's stored, and helps to ensure that only authorized users have access to the complete data.

Intellectual property protection

Intellectual property (IP), such as source code or research data, is the lifeblood of technology-based businesses across the spectrum: from biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies to manufacturers and robotics companies to software and data analytics companies and more. Microsharding intellectual property data helps mitigate the impacts of data breaches, corporate espionage, and even simple security configuration errors to keep your IP safe and your business innovating.

Mitigating the impact of data breaches

The traditional information security approach for protecting data has mainly been to rely on fortifying the perimeters around data. The purpose of microsharding is to cloud-enable data by desensitizing data at rest, irrespective of other security controls. This provides another layer of protection by making the data unintelligible, incomplete, and of no value to malicious actors when the inevitable occurs.

We shred, mix, and distribute your data.

Files are shredded into microshards too small to contain sensitive data. Microshards are mixed across multiple containers, which are distributed across multiple storage locations.
