Protect your application data throughout its life cyle.

Finally, 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 having to manage keys, add hardware, increase latency or rely on a third-party service for access to data.

Absio Technology

Easily build security into your applications

Data is generated by applications running on endpoint devices and servers. Once data is created, it is typically stored on the device running the application, and then copied and distributed to other devices for the purposes of backing up, syncing and sharing the information between multiple systems and users. Most approaches to information security focus on protecting data after it has been stored and distributed. This means as organizations continually invest in new software to create, process and analyze information, they need to continually spend more time and money to find and secure that ever-growing amount of data. These efforts are further complicated by the dramatic growth in cloud and mobile computing. There are so many locations where data may be stored that the investment necessary to find and secure that data is becoming prohibitively large and nearly impossible to sustain. But if it’s software that creates the data we need to secure, shouldn’t we focus our efforts on changing the software so that the data is protected automatically?

Building security into applications has traditionally been hard, expensive and intrusive. Originally developed to secure intelligence information in a battlefield environment, Absio’s technology enables software developers to integrate powerful security features directly into the applications they build, without needing to become security experts. Absio's developer toolset consists of cross platform-capable software development kits and a portable server application that seamlessly integrate with new and existing applications, offering comprehensive data security without degrading user experience or application performance.

Automatic object-level encryption protects data in storage, in transit and in use.

Associating metadata with individual data objects supports classification, auditing, policy enforcement and lifespan control.

Automatic public key infrastructure and portable server application enables secure content sharing, backup and synchronization.

Obfuscating file store enables keys and content to be stored locally to improve performance and offline access without putting data at risk.

Absio technology is implemented through software development kits (SDKs) that developers with no data security experience can integrate into their new and existing software applications with a few lines of code. Check out our secure email sample application.

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.
