Algo5 secures data from internal and external threats, allowing access and retrieval only by known authorized users.
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. & MADISON, Wis. – Secured2 Corporation and TASCET today announced the launch of Algo5™, a proprietary security platform to protect data from threats (breaches, hacks and disasters) resulting from both internal vulnerabilities and external sources.
Secured2 protects data from document origination to the endpoint (cloud, local storage or hybrid) through its solution, Beyond Encryption™. TASCET, an identification company, implements a proprietary process to ensure one person, one identity through SuperToken™. Together, they enable companies in any industry to offer the most secure end-to-end data storage solution available today.
Algo5 provides all five of the crucial components necessary to secure data in today’s high risk environment.
Security breaches suffered across industries are driving the need for an advanced solution. Algo5 provides security and cost savings by shrinking and shredding data, then dispersing it among numerous locations, with each location separately encrypting the data. The data can be accessed and retrieved only by users who are authorized and known through a SuperToken.
“There are too many weak points in the way data is stored and accessed today,” said Daren Klum, CEO of Secured2. “Without Algo5, the risks are simply too high. Algo5 brings together two technologies – identification and data security at the file level – that are changing the way companies store, access and retrieve data.”
SuperToken establishes the unique identity of users and links them to a single identifier that cannot be altered, shared or stolen. The data dispersed using Algo5 is fully restored only through a request based upon a confirmed SuperToken, preventing access by unauthorized persons who reside inside or outside the organization.
“Breaches are increasingly caused by external forces gaining access through internal personnel,” said Larry Aubol, CEO of TASCET. “By managing internal access, companies limit external threats.”
“Algo5 provides all of the crucial components necessary to secure data in today’s high risk environment,” said Aubol. “This includes the identification of users, which ensures that access is allowed only by users who are known. This step is nonexistent in approaches that rely on authentication.”
“Algo5 is a great example of two companies joining forces to provide an end-to-end solution that is business-critical,” said Klum.
