Atakama provides its security software for free during the COVID-19 pandemic

Atakama, a data security company based in NYC, is offering its new security software for free for businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Atakama provides businesses with protection for confidential, proprietary, and client files—all without disrupting how users interact with their data.

"Granular, file-level encryption is one of the most powerful yet underutilized tools available for information security," said Atakama's CEO, Daniel H. Gallancy. "Its underutilization has been a consequence of cumbersome deployment requirements, scalability difficulties and concerns about lost encryption keys. By making use of threshold cryptography, Atakama eliminates the barriers to the successful use of file-level encryption”

Atakama's one-of-a-kind information security solution is designed to keep business data safe from attacks, even when other security fails. Atakama offers customizable security policies to best fit individualized business needs and user workflows. 

Founded in 2017 by a team of entrepreneurs, engineers, and cryptographers, Atakama has since developed a software that enables each file to be encrypted individually without employing passwords or centralized key storage.

Its patent-pending distributed key management software seamlessly distributes pieces of encryption keys to physical devices controlled by the user.

By eliminating the need for passwords, Atakama ensures that data is protected even when other cybersecurity measures fail.

“In today's environment, where a significant percentage of the workforce is remote, businesses need to bolster their security systems, both as a means of protecting a distributed workforce and as a means of defending against an unfortunate opportunistic increase in attacks. I have been overwhelmed by the entire Atakama team's outspoken desire to provide assistance to businesses in need. We've decided to offer Atakama for free for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Gallancy said.
