CORK, Ireland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--More than 4,100 publicly disclosed data breaches occurred in 2022, with approximately 22 billion records leaked. Most of it was not encrypted. Vaultree, the Data-In-Use Encryption leader, today announced the general availability of a first-of-its-kind software development kit (SDK) to address this massive need.
Made possible by a series of major cryptographic breakthroughs by the Vaultree team, the SDK is a user-friendly, simple-to-integrate, and easy-to-use fully scalable solution that enables organizations to benefit from Fully Functional Data-In-Use Encryption, allowing for the processing of fully encrypted data without server-side decryption and complex intermediaries or noticeable delays in data processing.
Vaultree developed the solution to address the problems associated with processing completely encrypted data at scale, ensuring that companies no longer need to sacrifice security for performance and are able to keep their data safe at all times with unmatched simplicity and exceptional encrypted data processing rates. Businesses can retain their tech stack, database, code and SQL syntax, follow the rules, and operate without any perceptible changes, with the added benefit of being completely encrypted and at scale. Vaultree's SDK provides protection, including adherence, security and effectiveness. So, in the event of a leak, rather than issuing an apology about the wholesale exposure of sensitive data, companies will be able to inform clients that although their data has been compromised, it is encrypted, meaning it is protected by encryption, an unparalleled level of security.
This layer of protection also makes CISOs' lives easier by solving one of the most difficult challenges in cybersecurity: persistent data encryption, even in the event of a leak, with the world's first Fully Functional Data-In-Use Encryption solution. Encryption technologies to date have not been able to process encrypted data, decrypting it to plain text for processing and therefore impacting organizations' overall data security, making their data readily available to cyber criminals. Vaultree's encryption solution is smarter, quicker, easier, and more efficient than anything else on the market. Truly zero-trust, it allows users to work with fully encrypted data without key disclosure or server-side decryption. Data-In-Use Encryption maintains data encrypted at all times, even during processing. As an added benefit, there are no intermediaries, which translates to zero learning curve or implementation overhead, making adoption seamless.
Ease of integration and use is another critical differentiator of Vaultree's SDK encryption solution. There is no need to be a cryptographer, no intermediaries (such as APIs, proxies or plugins), no change of data architecture, and no code or SQL syntax change. This remarkable adaptability has made the product a prime mover in the market.
"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. Vaultree is leading the way to a safer future," said Rinki Sethi, member of Vaultree's executive board of directors.
Vaultree's SDK encryption solution tackles the drawbacks of both conventional and contemporary encryption methods with a variety of features, including:
- Close to plaintext processing speed, even at scale
- Keys reside with the client
- End-to-end encrypted in use, decrypted only client-side
- No changes to stack, SQL syntax, data structure, architecture, and network topology
- Complex processing from fulltext search to computations on randomized encrypted data
- Performance and scalability at enterprise levels
- No need for special purpose hardware
Peak performance processing on fully encrypted data enables enterprises to scale to billions of datasets while processing data at speeds similar to unencrypted data processing. Enterprises handling large amounts of sensitive data, including those in financial services, healthcare, pharmaceutical, insurance, retail, telecom, and energy sectors, will be able to mitigate the tremendous economic, cyber, legal, reputational, and business risk of a data breach in plain text — because of the data being encrypted.
"Breaches or leaks will continue happening, no matter how many tools are in the first line of defense, but the second line of defense — encryption — has been neglected for decades because data still has to be decrypted to be worked with. The only way forward is an always-encrypted approach," said Tilo Weigandt, Co-Founder and COO of Vaultree.
Amongst other developments, Vaultree is the first and only (Data-In-Use) encryption solution vendor to partner with Google's AlloyDB for PostgreSQL, leading a new era with a fully functional encryption solution in the cloud. To further expand usage of its revolutionary data protection solution, Vaultree has also partnered with Qrypt. The partnership leverages Qrypt’s ability to independently generate identical symmetric keys at multiple endpoints and quantum-secure future-safe one-time pad encryption paired with Vaultree’s Fully Functional Data-In-Use Encryption to enable fast, future secure data processing in a cloud-first world.
"As it stands, we are the only company globally with the capacity and innovation we have. We are going to grow significantly over the next year enabling organizations with our Data-In-Use encryption technology. We are focusing heavily on bringing this to market fast with our target markets being North America and Europe," said Ryan Lasmaili, Co-Founder and CEO of Vaultree.
Vaultree has developed the world's first Fully Functional Data-in-Use Encryption solution that solves the industry's fundamental security issue: persistent data encryption, even in the event of a leak. Vaultree enables enterprises, including those in the financial services and healthcare / pharmaceutical sectors, to mitigate the great financial, cyber, legal, reputational, and business risk of a data breach in plain text. With Vaultree, organizations process, search and compute ubiquitous data at scale without ever having to surrender encryption keys or decrypt server-side. If a leak occurs, Vaultree's data-in-use encryption persists, rendering the data unusable to bad actors. Integrating Vaultree into existing database technologies is seamless, requiring no technology or platform changes.
