SecureAge brings data security and enterprise encryption expertise to UK
16 April 2020
SECUREAGE TECHNOLOGY, the provider of next generation data security, is expanding its global footprint with the launch of a new UK operation. The Singapore-based company – the preferred data security partner for the Singapore Government and military – provides 100% transparent file-level encryption to protect all information "at rest, in use and in motion".
With the exponential growth in remote working as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, SecureAge is ideally placed to ensure that data is useless if it falls into the wrong hands – whether by accident, through insider theft or by malware attack. Even if a home worker goes ‘rogue’ or a laptop is lost or stolen and the username and password are compromised, SecureAge ensures that it's still not possible to access or exfiltrate data. With its transparent, universal encryption, data security is completely invisible to the user, thereby removing the human element entirely.
The new UK business is headed up by experienced technical director Nigel Thorpe and sales director Nick Maslen, who has worked with the likes of Silent Circle, General Dynamics, InfoBlox and IBM.
“With the current COVID-19 pandemic causing global chaos, the need for businesses to enable more people than ever before to work from home securely has shone the spotlight squarely on data security,” explained Nigel Thorpe in conversation with Security Matters. “Home working increases the chances of theft or the accidental loss of sensitive data by employees. SecureData, which is our flagship enterprise encryption solution, ensures that lost or stolen data is useless because it cannot be decrypted once it's outwith the control of the organisation.”
While persistent encryption inherently protects data, SecureAge’s ‘process execution control’ blocks malware, ransomware and keyloggers. “Rather than taking the conventional approach of identifying bad stuff then blocking it, SecureAge simply blocks all previously unknown processes,” outlined Thorpe. “Keyloggers attempting to steal corporate VPN passwords simply don’t stand a chance.”
Dr. Teow-Hin Ngair, Founder and CEO at SecureAge, explained: “We established SecureAge back in 2003 with the aim of making PKI-based encryption an inherent component of data protection with no trade-off between security and usability. Our ability to protect all of the information all of the time – at rest, in use and in motion – is proven through collaboration with the Government and the military of Singapore, as well as with Government offices in Tokyo and Hong Kong which depend on our technology to prevent the compromise of extremely sensitive data. Following the opening of our US offices last year, we're now focused on positioning SecureAge in the UK, initially targeting core vertical markets such as Government, finance and energy.”*For more information on SecureAge Technology visit: https://www.secureage.com/
