Lockbox technology is effectively a game changer for cloud privacy.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 17, 2012
Lockbox, a cloud encryption company with products including a private client portal and private collaborative workspaces, won Runners Up in the category of “Most Innovative Security Products and Services” at “The Security Summit – West”, sponsored by The Security Network.
The Security Network’s largest annual event brings in exhibitors from around the world in addition to attendees from all sectors of security and defense. The Security Network events allow smaller innovative companies to showcase their products to major players in the security industry. The award was presented to Lockbox at the event in San Diego. Lockbox will continue from there to exhibit at “The Security Summit – East” in Washington, DC, May 16 & 17.
In a very close competition, the judges were impressed by the way that Lockbox’s encryption technology could make the “cloud” safe for confidential and sensitive information. As one judge described, “The technology is effectively a game changer because end-users can protect their own data (using encryption) and maintain control (using cryptographic keys) over potentially any cloud storage service.”
In accepting the Award, Lockbox highlighted the need for an added layer of security and privacy when using the cloud for sharing confidential or sensitive information and that this could be achieved using client-side encryption and cryptographic keys. "The honor of being a finalist is continued validation of the increased need for security, privacy and control in the cloud. Our clients are experiencing the benefits and strong protection of our technology on a daily basis,” said Rick Harvey, CTO of Lockbox.
Lockbox is an industry leading “cloud privacy” company which uses encryption to ensure that information being shared via the “cloud” is highly secure, totally private and completely controlled by the end-user. Lockbox products include private collaborative workspaces and private client portals and are especially suited to environments dealing with information that is private, sensitive or confidential.
