“It’s an exciting time to join the ShardSecure team and I’m looking forward to growing our business in EMEA. Europe is facing unique challenges in the field of cybersecurity, especially with regard to the introduction of the cloud. ShardSecure’s Microshard technology offers a unique solution to enable secure cloud use while ensuring data protection. The data owners also retain control over their data. This will finally provide a solution for companies that have security concerns when they go to the cloud,“ says Pascal Cronauer.
ShardSecure’s Microshard technology protects data by digitally “shredding” it into microshards that are too small to contain sensitive data. These microshards are then mixed with “toxic” data and distributed to multiple storage locations of the customer’s choice. The self-healing data also undoes unauthorized data deletions and manipulations – including ransomware – for “Data at rest”.
Microsharding is characterized by making sensitive data unintelligible in the wrong hands and releasing this data for multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments so that companies can maintain business continuity. The three-step microsharding process makes this data incomprehensible and worthless for attackers, which drastically reduces the impact of a compromise.
“It is a pleasure to welcome Pascal to our team. He will play a strategic role in helping us maintain our rapid growth and expand our presence in EMEA. His unique blend of experience makes him the perfect choice to lead our EMEA sales organization“” explains Bob Lam, CEO and Co-Founder of ShardSecure .
ShardSecure recently announced its partnership with UK channel partner Praesidium-Cyber as part of the company’s European expansion.
