CertiVox today unveiled a PrivateSky Secure Information Exchange (SIX)™ platform. The new service provides fast, easy-to-use protection for email, files and other information sent via the cloud, through a unique two-factor authentication process and a sophisticated, certificateless encryption platform.
This encryption process is easily activated by a click of a button from within Outlook, a web browser or via any browser-based application on a PC, Mac, tablet or smartphone. It’s a one-click solution where encryption and decryption are securely completed with no disruption to workflow, setting it apart from other Internet security products.
“SIX is a leap forward in information security, empowering individuals, businesses, their partners and customers (especially in industries that must adhere to strict regulatory requirements) with easy-to-use tools to take control of their data and protect their online exchanges and transactions being compromised,” says CertiVox CEO Brian Spector.
While enterprises and governments want to leverage the benefits of cloud services, they are still searching for security solutions that simply and economically solve the risks and issues with using the cloud today. CertiVox’s PrivateSky SIX™ platform solves these legal, regulatory and ethical challenges. It is the world’s first technology built to truly protect enterprises and computer users everywhere from having their data compromised, and it works for all things Internet.
The PrivateSky SIX™ platform:
- Uses breakthrough Incognito Keys™ and certificateless encryption technology, providing the only secure information exchange on the market today – for even very large files, eliminating the compliance concerns that surround cloud computing.
- Departs from other products because the user encrypts their information at the source and retains complete control over the encryption keys – meaning cloud storage service providers and managed file transfer services can no longer see or access their clients’ sensitive information, an issue that has been widely reported..
- Separates the encryption keys from the data while in transit which ensures that only the intended recipients can access encrypted information. Not even CertiVox has access to the encrypted data or the encryption keys – a technical breakthrough in online security and an industry first.
- Offers significant and far-reaching solutions for industries and governments that adhere to strict regulatory and privacy requirements.
“The reality is that messages are still generally sent via the internet in plain text. Access to other peoples’ data is still possible despite the best security companies have been able to offer. This is a fundamental issue that experts have been trying to solve in a usable way for years,” says Julian Dyer, Chief Technology Officer, Cobweb Solutions Limited, a leading UK cloud messaging provider. “With PrivateSky SIX™, it’s finally safe to do business through the cloud, which is critical to cloud adoption. We can now guarantee a secure platform that allows our customers to easily secure their messaging and safely transfer even their largest files.”
Because PrivateSky SIX™ is browser-based, users don’t have to rely on certificates, passwords or lengthy installations to use the technology.
“We developed PrivateSky SIX™ so that enterprises, governments and computer users everywhere could arm themselves in this digital age,” adds Spector. “Our platform enables users to remain private in a very public and often watchful online world, yet still take advantage of all that the cloud has to offer. We’re thrilled to be on the leading-edge of this important online security revolution.”
CertiVox is offering a complimentary beta of the PrivateSky SIX™ portal starting in February. Details and sign up at www.privatesky.me
