Making the Impossible, Possible
Protecting sensitive data is a priority for all businesses, but in order to truly be protected, organizations must ensure they are securing data at all times. Enter, a cybersecurity company that offers a unique solution to close a crucial, but often overlooked gap in data security. The company, founded in 2016, secures Data in Use, protecting data while it’s being used or processed. Enveil’s technology enables data to be encrypted throughout the processing lifecycle.
CEO Ellison Anne Williams provides the example of performing a search of data in a cloud environment. Data is protected in transit and at rest in a cloud environment, but the second that a search over the data is performed, historically, the data is not secure.
“That’s the point of least resistance for an attacker,” said Williams. “People can just come along and take your data. But because we make sure that nothing is decrypted during processing, we close off that gap.”
With no other companies in the cybersecurity market offering this totally encrypted solution, Williams says users are shocked by Enveil’s solution.
The reaction of early adopters? “Holy cow, this actually works,” said Williams.
“Keeping everything encrypted during processing sounds impossible...we get it,” Williams says recognizing the skeptics. “But it’s not (impossible). It’s just not."
