Enveil, Unbound Tech Bring Data Security Triad to the Enterprise

Cybersecurity specialist Enveil has partnered with Unbound Tech to bring nation-state level data security to business customers. Together, by securing data-at-rest, data-in-transit, as well as data-in-use, the two companies will offer enterprise clients what it calls “the Data Security Triad” for cybersecurity protection.

“Partnering with innovative leaders like Unbound Tech allows us to push beyond current technology limitations to provide integrated solutions that truly represent the market-rattling, leading edge in data security,” said Ellison Anne Williams, founder and CEO of Enveil. “We recognize the importance of working seamlessly alongside other leading technologies to ensure sensitive data and encryption keys are secure at all times.”

The new solution secures sensitive data at all points in its lifecycle. Enveil’s technology leverages homomorphic encryption to close the data-in-use “exposure gap” that is created when sensitive data is decrypted for use or processing. Williams referred to this gap as the “point of least resistance” for cyberattacks.

Unbound Tech manages cryptographic keys, credentials, and other data to ensure that they never exist anywhere in their complete form. The combination of homomorphic data security and MPC-based encryption key protection, explained Unbound Tech CEO Avner Mor, relieves companies of the burden of needing multiple strategies to deal with data in different states. The solution also helps businesses save money, Mor said, calling the lower administrative and resource overhead an “added bonus.”

Unbound Tech is a Tel Aviv, Israel-based firm founded in 2013. Funded by investors including Citi Ventures, Innovation Endeavors, and Goldman Sachs Principal Strategic Investments, the company won the Prime Minister’s Award for Israeli Innovation for its digital security technology in November.

Enveil demonstrated its data encryption platform at FinovateFall 2017. Founded in 2016 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., Enveil announced in December that its ZeroReveal Compute Fabric, introduced last summer, would be accessible in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. ZeroReveal Compute Fabric is a two-party platform that supports access to the company’s ZeroReveal solutions to protect data-in-use.

In September, Enveil won a spot on SINET’s 16 Innovators roster for 2018, the same month the company earned international Common Criteria security certification for its ZeroReveal solution. Enveil announced a technology integration with digital security firm Gemalto in August,

Enveil Launches its ZeroReveal Compute Fabric Technology to Defend Data In Use

Enveil, the cybersecurity company that specializes in protecting data in use, introduced its latest innovation – ZeroReveal Compute Fabric – this week. The technology is a two-party platform that enables users to access a variety of Enveil’s ZeroReveal solutions to protect data in its most vulnerable state: when it is being used.

“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,” Enveil founder and CEO Ellison Anne Williams explained. “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.”

“We allow you to securely use data where it is and as it is today, delivering nation-state level security – no system overhaul required.”

Ellison Anne Williams, Enveil founder and CEO, demonstrating the company’s technology at FinovateFall 2017.

Because most data needs to be decrypted when subjected to search or analytics, a potential vulnerability exists every time data is being accessed. With Enveil, this “last gap in data security” is sealed, giving enterprises the ability to securely work with both encrypted and unencrypted data in the cloud, on premises, and in between.

Enveil is an innovator in the field of homomorphic encryption, a protocol that has been known for more than 30 years but until now never practically applied to consumer use. In an article for Dark Reading last month, Williams pointed to the value of homomorphic encryption, which she referred to as the “holy grail” of cryptography.

“If we ignore the need to protect data while it’s being processed (in use), it really doesn’t matter how secure the data is on the way to the vault (in transit) or while stored in the vault (at rest); an attacker can simply patiently wait until the data is completely exposed during use to steal it,” Williams wrote. “Homomorphic encryption can ensure this final piece of the data security puzzle is solved by eliminating the data in-use security gap.”

This week, Williams referred to the company’s Compute Fabric as the first practical application of this technology. “And certainly the first to have any kind of nation-state security certification coming out of active deployment in the operational capacity,” she added.

Enveil’s Compute Fabric technology builds on the company’s previous client stand-alone application for point-to-point security during data use. The new solution represents an expansion of that product, providing more multiple deployment options and enterprise-wide security. Additionally, Enveil’s solutions do not require firms to replace their current cybersecurity systems in order to defend data in use.

Enveil demonstrated its data security technology at FinovateFall 2017. The company’s point-to-point solution featured a client application that encrypts operations and decrypts results. Enveil’s server application resides inside the environment of the data repository and processes encrypted operations over the data.

The company’s solutions are deployed in a variety of industries including financial services, healthcare, supply chain, and cloud security. Enveil has raised $4 million in funding and includes Thomson Reuters, In-Q-Tel, DataTribe, and Bloomberg Beta among its investors.
