Absio got its start in military intelligence. Our team was presented with the most difficult of security challenges. Support highly mobile information sharing on the battlefield with security strong enough to defeat a nation-state actor.
- Data had to be secured at creation using off-the-shelf hardware.
- A central encryption key server had to be eliminated.
- Offline data access was a must, while still maintaining information control.
It’s the ultimate “beyond the fortress” security problem and it took a team of talented cryptographers, data security experts, software architects, and developers to solve it. The result—a patented method of software-defined distributed key cryptography delivering a new level of data security without sacrificing data mobility.
Our biggest breakthrough, however, was transforming our military-grade security solution into a multi-language development tool that was easy to implement at the application level with nothing more than an API.
Today our customers tap the Absio toolkit for identity and access management, end-to-end data protection, secure data storage, digital rights management and other data security and privacy use cases, both large and small. And we’re here to help every step of the way.
