Bonafeyed Ransomware Protection

Our products are architected to automate the protection of all shared data and give the data owner complete control of its security. We use an advanced cryptographic algorithm that encrypts data before it leaves a sender’s computer, a backend application, website or Software-as-a-Service application. No matter where the data is sent, it remains secure and protected from unauthorized access. When deployed in an enterprise, all data is individually protected with 800-bit encryption. In the event of a data breach, cyber-criminals and internal bad-actors only obtain encrypted data and are faced with the last line of data protection, Cy4Secure Data Security.
