GarbleCloud basically offers encryption services, but also claims to take data encryption to a new level of functionality and ease of use by enabling useful operations on encrypted files while making those files completely opaque to service providers. cloud services or SaaS applications. The platform uses patented technology that enterprises can access and leverage to fully control important files and documents (unstructured data), even when stored in remote public clouds.
According to Founder and CEO Bijit Hore, “Large organizations are increasingly facing ransomware attacks and the potential exposure of sensitive data. In high-profile cases reported over the past year, attackers perform recognition after breaching company defenses. They look to identify high-value accounts and compromise web application credentials, uncovering treasure troves of sensitive data in online document processing platforms such as Google Workspace, Microsoft Office 365, etc. if your cloud ecosystem is hacked, your company data is still protected.”
The company’s core technology includes: AES-256 encryption which is user controlled and easy to use; a robust, industrial-grade encryption key management framework; support for CRUD operations on encrypted files in popular SaaS platforms; the ability to perform full-text search on encrypted documents; the ability to share and collaborate on encrypted documents between teams; and provides platform-independent, encryption-based file security and rights management.
The company holds two US patents for techniques for securing sensitive data in cloud storage systems and for scalable searching of encrypted files in public cloud platforms.
GarbleCloud believes that searching encrypted documents/files is a key part of keeping data private and secure yet actionable and searchable. This capability builds on years of previous work and research in academic settings by the founders of GarbleCloud.
GarbleCloud developers aim to target and connect with organizations that have fully or partially adopted the cloud, CISOs, IT/InfoSec and in regulated industry verticals including healthcare, insurance, financial and legal services, as well as some technology companies.
In a few years, the founders of GarbleCloud predict that the platform will become a top choice for cloud privacy and data security, as well as ransomware resiliency, for middle-market organizations and enterprises. The company hopes its solution will shake things up in data security and give companies and enterprises a better way to protect sensitive data on cloud and SaaS platforms. The company encourages everyone to “distort” data – “it just makes sense in the cloud.”
