Protect your application data throughout its life cycle.

Now you can easily secure and control your application data all the time—from creation to deletion, everywhere it exists. Founded on years of experience creating secure information sharing solutions, Absio offers a simple way to implement comprehensive data security without forcing organizations to manage keys, add hardware, increase application latency or rely on a third-party service.

Absio Technology

Easily build encryption into your software applications

Data is generated by applications running on PCs, mobile devices, IoT endpoints, and servers in the cloud or on-premise. Once created, data is typically stored on the devices running the application, and then copied and distributed to other devices via the internet or other media for backup, synchronization and sharing. The typical approach to information security has been to find sensitive data, aggregate it, and then secure it after it has been distributed, requiring continual investments in systems and manpower. If sensitive data is stored on other organization’s networks, additional resources are required to audit these external systems and processes. This endless cycle can be broken if the software applications that generate and process the sensitive data also protect it automatically.

Originally developed to secure intelligence information in a battlefield environment, Absio’s software-defined, Serverless Encryption™ technology enables rich-client, mobile, IoT, cloud-native, server and client-side web software developers with no cryptography expertise to quickly and inexpensively add encryption to existing and new applications. Absio’s developer toolset consists of multi-language software development kits (SDKs) with simple APIs and a portable data sharing application that enable automatic PKI-based authentication and data encryption without having to manage keys and certificates, buy and maintain hardware, trust a third-party service, or rely on a connection to create and access encrypted data. Absio SDKs are available in the primary programming languages, enabling developers to use one tool for all their cross-platform application security needs.

WHY DATA SECURITY

What if there was a breach and nobody cared? It's time to rethink data security.

No amount of investment in cybersecurity can prevent breaches. In a world where data is becoming increasingly mobile, it is fundamentally impossible to ensure no one can access your data. Traditionally, cybersecurity solutions have focused on protecting the environment where data is stored, and the connections through which data is transmitted. While this form of security is necessary, a data breach by definition indicates that the environment where data is stored or the medium through which it has been transmitted has been compromised. Protecting data requires us to change the nature of the data itself, not just its environment.

It’s not about the networks, it’s about the data. It’s the data that’s valuable, and it’s the data that’s risky.
