Atakama’s decentralized, multifactor approach to cryptographic key management protects organizations from data exfiltration, even when all rules-based access controls fail. Unlike any other encryption technology in the market, Atakama provides the most user-friendly, secure protection for unstructured data by completely removing critical weak-points – centralized encryption key management and identity and access management.
While conventional encryption solutions rely on centralized keys – which grant hackers full access to targeted organizations’ data once they have compromised credentials – Atakama’s decentralized solution untethers security from identity and access management, eliminating the need for usernames and passwords. It leverages threshold cryptography to split encryption keys and distribute the key shards among multiple devices, ensuring that successful file decryption occurs only when the authenticated devices reconstitute the key. This safeguards critical assets against data exfiltration even when hackers or cybercriminals are inside the perimeter, as central points of attack and failure are eliminated.
Atakama’s Multifactor Encryption provides a layer of unparalleled data security that is cross-compatible with all major desktop and mobile platforms, ensuring seamless and scalable integration and deployment within organizations’ existing environments. Its ease of use removes the conventional trade-off between data security and accessibility, simplifying the user experience, visualizing data usage, and providing insights into security trends. Atakama delivers unrivaled file-level security to organizations without sacrificing productivity.
World-leading companies across financial services, law, asset management, medical science, and technology rely on Atakama to protect their most sensitive data. It is also utilized by the US Department of Defense – a testament to the high levels of innovation and data security provided by Atakama’s patented technology.
