NEW YORK, Aug. 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — ShardSecure, inventor of the innovative MicroShared™ technology that reduces data security and privacy risks in the cloud, has been named a commercial leader in a new market segment: cloud data fragmentation. , or CDF.
The CDF market segment was identified by TAG Cyber in its July 2022 analyst report and represents a significant development in the cloud data security landscape. It also shows the growing need for new approaches, such as ShardSecure’s three-step microsharing process, to increase data resiliency in the cloud.
Ed Amoroso, CEO and Founder of TAG Cyber, said: “Cloud data fragmentation is an exciting new class of cybersecurity solutions designed not only to provide cloud-native security and privacy, but also to improve the resilience of cloud-hosted data. “While this common way of distributing data has been around for many years, it’s only recently that commercial vendors like ShardSecure have emerged that perform application-level data fragmentation. Solutions like microshard technology allow organizations to protect their sensitive data protect offer a promising opportunity to improve multi-cloud environments and their overall data security.”
The new CDF market segment, also discussed TAG Cyber Q3 2022 report, includes technologies that split data into separate parts that are processed and stored in different parts. As the report notes, CDF solutions are based on the idea that objects distributed in public clouds are more difficult to attack than combined objects – a concept that forms the basis of ShardSecure’s patented shred-mix-distribute process. .
Specifically, ShardSecure’s microshard technology disables sensitive data by digitally hacking sensitive data into microshards that are too small to store sensitive data. These microshards are then mixed with the venom data and distributed to multiple customer-owned storage locations of the customer’s choice.
MicroShared technology renders sensitive data unwieldy and worthless in the wrong hands, making this data suitable for multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud environments. It also greatly reduces the impact of data breaches and supports business continuity during outages, ransomware attacks, and more. In addition, microshard technology’s self-healing data enables recovery of affected microshard containers, allowing unauthorized deletions and tampering to be reversed.
“We are pleased to be recognized in Tag Cyber’s report as part of this important new market segment,” said Bob Lam, CEO and co-founder of ShardSecure. “We believe that microsharding is an invaluable tool for strengthening data resilience and security, and recognition of the CDF category demonstrates the growing need for microsharding technology to reduce the impact of threats ranging from outages and data extortion range to ransomware. As a result, ShardSecure is poised to be a key player to strengthen data security in this market segment.”
