Enveil Extends Protections to the Processing Layer with ZeroReveal™ Solutions, Closing the Last Gap in Data Security
Data Security Startup Announces Flagship Platform to Secure Data in Use
WASHINGTON, D.C., July 3, 2018 – Enveil, the pioneering data security company protecting Data in Use, today announced its flagship ZeroReveal™ Compute Fabric, a two-party platform enabling a suite of ZeroReveal™ solutions. Enveil’s products allow organizations across verticals to protect data when it is traditionally most vulnerable: while it’s being used. Performing operations such as search or analytics requires data be decrypted, creating points of exposure. Enveil closes this last gap in data security by enabling users to securely operate on both encrypted and unencrypted data in the Cloud, on premise, or anywhere in between.
Leveraging its innovative Compute Fabric, Enveil’s ZeroReveal™ solutions prove not only that the long-pursued theory of homomorphic encryption is market ready, but that it is practical, scalable, and can integrate without any required changes to existing database and storage technologies. Using proprietary technology that has led to 13 patent applications to date, Enveil uses homomorphic encryption techniques to achieve unmatched levels of scale – the solution has been proven to perform robustly and at speed over terabytes of data on cloud platforms.
“Continued reports of chip flaws and data breaches in recent months make it clear that encrypting data at rest and in transit isn’t good enough in today’s volatile security environment. Organizations must eliminate the Data in Use security gap and do so in a way that won’t negate investments in existing systems and protocols,” said Ellison Anne Williams, Founder and CEO of Enveil. “We allow you to securely use data where it is and as it is today, delivering nation-state level security – no system overhaul required.”
Requiring no changes to the underlying architecture or storage technologies, Enveil works seamlessly alongside an organization’s existing protections to keep data secure throughout the processing lifecycle. Enveil’s groundbreaking use of homomorphic encryption means encrypted operations are run on any type of data at scale, with processing times that ensure minimal impact on user experience.
“The range of potential use cases for homomorphic encryption is vast,” said Garrett Bekker, Principal Analyst, Information Security at 451 Research. “By focusing on the encryption-in-use space, Enveil complements data-at-rest and data-in-motion encryption to fill a gap in the overall data security landscape.”
Enveil’s ZeroReveal™ Compute Fabric exposes industry-standard APIs to extend protections to the processing layer without disrupting existing security infrastructure. The platform includes:
- A two-party system consisting of the ZeroReveal™ Client application, which lives within the enterprise, and the ZeroReveal™ Server application, deployed wherever the data resides: in the Cloud, on prem, or anywhere in between;
- Expanded ability to seamlessly plug into an enterprise’s existing, trusted authentication, access control, audit, and key management systems;
- Utilization of standard APIs for seamless integration such as JDBC and REST and integration with all top-tier database and storage technologies such as Oracle Database, PostgreSQL, ElasticSearch, and many more;
- Ability to process any type of data source including structured data found in storage technologies such as SQL and NoSQL databases and unstructured data found on the file system, in cloud data holdings such as S3 buckets, and other storage locations; and
- Continued performance enhancements, including improvements in performance several orders of magnitude faster than the company’s initial offering.
“Our team continues to push enhancements supporting Enveil’s vision of protecting Data in Use at the highest level of security in a way that doesn’t require major system changes,” said Ryan Carr, Director of Engineering at Enveil. “Recognizing that security teams have invested substantial time and resources in their current security technologies, Enveil works alongside existing systems with ease to enhance security and ensure sensitive data such as Intellectual Property, PII, and other compliance-critical data is protected throughout the processing lifecycle.”
By enabling a Never Decrypt security posture, Enveil fundamentally changes the paradigm of secure data usage. Organizations using Enveil’s ZeroReveal™ solutions achieve a nation-state level of security, enabling them to avoid compliance pitfalls, and take advantage of the cost savings achieved through the use of cloud resources and third-party data sources with confidence. Customers use Enveil to securely process data in the Cloud, monetize data assets, eliminate third-party risk, and ensure the protection of Crown Jewel data assets.
