Empowers Organizations to Conduct Business With Confidence

RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Covata, the industry leader in data-centric security, announced today the availability of the Covata Platform, providing organizations a flexible and comprehensive solution to secure data wherever it resides – beyond the domain, on mobile devices and in the cloud. The Covata Platform ends the reliance on the security of the device, network, storage, or application, enabling organizations to conduct business with the confidence that the data is protected and in their control.

“Business is increasingly being conducted over untrusted networks and devices, and organizations must take steps to protect their data accordingly,” said Charles Archer, Executive Chairman and CEO, Covata. “At Covata, we call this 'Own Your Data' – combining protection, control and visibility so businesses can share data with confidence. This release of the Covata Platform delivers to this promise, providing organizations a flexible and extensible platform to fully realize the benefits of critical initiatives such as the cloud and mobility.”

A comprehensive solution for data security and governance, the Covata Platform combines data-level encryption, granular and persistent data access rights management, and comprehensive visibility into access activity of the protected data. Covata functions independent of network, device, storage provider, cloud provider or application, providing business a single point of data protection and removing the costs and operational burden of supporting multiple encryption solutions. Covata encrypts data at the origination point, eliminating the gaps inherent to functional encryption solutions, assuring that the data is protected even when business is conducted on untrusted networks and devices.

The Covata Platform is designed to efficiently handle all of the functions associated with encryption, key management and security management at enterprise speed, scale and resiliency. The services-based approach makes it possible to integrate Covata directly into new and existing workflows, as well as integrate Covata with other solutions in the operational and security ecosystem. The Covata SDK exposes the power of the Covata Platform via RESTful APIs and client libraries (C#, iOS Objective-C and Java). The SDK empowers businesses, services providers and partners to build new applications and services beyond the domain, into the cloud and onto mobile devices with the assurance that the data is protected however it travels and wherever it rests.

Covata offers clients solutions such as Covata Safe Share to leverage the full capabilities of the Covata Platform. Safe Share provides users a simple intuitive interface to secure and control data on services such as Box, Dropbox and OneDrive, and provides a unified protection solution across multiple storage providers. Businesses can also leverage Safe Share as a corporate dropbox function using cloud storage providers such as AWS S3, Azure and Basho Riak CS, enabling file sharing while maximizing security, visibility and control of enterprise data.
