The world’s first Fully Functional Data-In-Use Encryption solution is now generally available
How Vaultree makes CISOs' lives easier
More than 4,100 publicly disclosed data breaches occurred in 2022, with approximately 22 billion records leaked. Most of it was not encrypted. The traditional security model is no longer fit. Over the next few years, ransomware and phishing attacks will continue to challenge organisations and governments that do not rely on innovative technology to protect their sensitive data globally.
Can encryption prevent a data leak?
The short answer is no. But that’s also not the objective of encryption. Encryption (even strong encryption) alone cannot prevent you from getting hacked. Different types of technology are used for that purpose, but encryption is the essential base layer to protect sensitive data from unauthorised access in its plaintext form. In the worst-case scenario (exposure), if it falls into the wrong hands, it's pure gibberish and useless to criminals.
How unprotected data makes you vulnerable
Data in use is vulnerable because it is commonly unencrypted and easily accessible for individuals to view or modify. Unencrypted databases are easy targets for attacks. This jeopardises organisations' overall data security because data is exposed in plaintext. From credential theft to internal threats and cloud storage, the more data you have “flying around” unprotected, the more you give room for cybercriminals to access and exploit them.
With companies handling large amounts of sensitive data online, proactive measures to prevent the devastating consequences of a leak require mapping the risks, protecting networks, training staff and building a solid response plan. From brand damage to lost revenue and legal fines, protective measures pay off when it comes to security.
Complete control of your data requires an infrastructure where you do not give up control of your data - and holding the keys for encrypted data. The keys are a crucial element of your encryption strategy. Secure and control access, rotate and prevent unauthorised access at all stages.
"Breaches or leaks will continue happening, no matter how many tools are in the first line of defence, but the second line of defence – encryption – has been neglected for decades because data still has to be decrypted in order to be worked with. The only way forward is an always-encrypted approach" - Tilo Weigandt, Co-Founder & COO
Why is Fully Functional Data-In-Use Encryption so important?
Unprotected data, at any stage, leave your entire system vulnerable.
Encryption technologies to date have not been able to process encrypted data, decrypting it to plaintext for processing and therefore impacting organisations’ overall data security, making their data easily available to cyber criminals.
With Fully Functional Data-In-Use Encryption, the big difference is that data is encrypted all time: at rest, in transit, and IN USE. It solves the limitations of traditional encryption solutions. around processing fully encrypted data at scale.
CISOs can now have an easier life
We're proud to announce that our SDK is now generally available! With the world's first Fully Functional Data-In-Use Encryption solution, Vaultree is tackling the shortcomings of both traditional encryption and modern techniques with simplicity, security, and utmost performance. Imagine, in the case of a leak, being able to say "Dear customers, your data has been stolen, but you know what: Whatever! You don't need to worry because it was encrypted."
With quicker, easier and more efficient technology than before, we turn sensitive data into gibberish so that CISOs and security teams can have an easier life. Besides that, there are no intermediaries, which means zero learning and implementation overhead, which is unparalleled in the industry.
"Vaultree's groundbreaking solution is the first of its kind and will change the encryption landscape as we know it. Data security is not only one of today's hot topics but also the topic of tomorrow, and Vaultree is leading the way to a safer future." - Rinki Sethi, member of Vaultree's board of directors.
