ShardSecure is a data security platform aiming to simplify and strengthen data security, privacy, compliance and resilience as it relates to the storage of unstructured data.
ShardSecure introduces an additional layer of security by separating the infrastructure access from data access. This is achieved through a process called "sharding," which involves breaking the data into smaller pieces and distributing them across multiple storage locations. This approach ensures that even if a storage location is compromised or experiences an outage, the data remains intact and accessible.
The platform offers data resilience capabilities, including integrity checks and self-healing capabilities, to ensure the continuous operation and availability of the data. It also provides optimization potential in terms of cost and performance since it is storage agnostic, allowing seamless integration with various storage locations.
ShardSecure acts as an abstraction layer between data producers and consumers, ensuring that data is protected before being written and accessed through the platform. The integration is straightforward, requiring minimal code changes to point applications to the secure API instead of directly accessing the storage location.
The company has established partnerships with industry leaders such as Entrust, KPMG, AWS, Azure, Google, NetApp, and Comprise, enhancing its data security and management capabilities.
In summary, ShardSecure offers a unique and comprehensive approach to data security, focusing on unstructured data protection, data resilience, flexibility, and seamless integration with existing infrastructure.
