Cryptyk’s Vault encrypts uploaded files and shards them into five segments, each of which goes through another round of encryption before being stored distinctly on major cloud platforms such as Dropbox and Google Drive. In addition to providing trackable file sharing which in turn enables enterprises to keep a check on the data in motion, Sentry offers functionalities such as ID Verification, digital leak prevention, and user access monitoring. With an encryption model that would take years for even quantum computers to decrypt, Vault delivers unprecedented security from external threats via its two layers of decentralized storage architecture.
With decentralized authentication, there is no single mechanism to access multiple users’ credentials, which eliminates wide-scale breaches entirely
Brown highlights that the authentication engine can secure any type of credential, from passwords and PINs to advanced biometrics such as fingerprints and face scans. In that sense, “with factor agnostic authentication, businesses can improve security while enhancing the user experience,” says Brown. Biometrics, especially in MFA settings, can shield companies from common attack vectors, including phished credentials and credential stuffing. Additionally, biometric authentication reduces user experience friction associated with traditional login methods.
Brown believes that user data security and identity management will increasingly be a top priority for businesses and users alike. Traditional authentication workflows have proven ineffective against recent attackers and often lead to leakage of sensitive user information. “Enterprises will need to embrace innovative technologies to keep the trust of users and protect employees in the modern digital age,” he concludes.
