An expert helping mobile service providers, IoT manufactures, and enterprises redefine the way they protect Data-in-Motion: Privafy


Privafy's comprehensive, cloud-native security-as-a-service unifies all the functionality delivered by expensive to acquire and operate point solutions; SD-WAN, MPLS, VPNs, firewalls, DDoS protection, deep packet inspection, intrusion prevention and detection systems. Privafy’s cloud-native application simplifies security to protect your business from Data-in-Motion threats – all in a single integrated solution. Privafy’s pay-per-use security-as-a-service model requires very low capital expenditures – in fact at a fraction of the cost of traditional point solutions. No need for dedicated staff for provisioning, patching, and updating point solutions that leave room for costly human errors. Privafy’s simple interface enables central management of all your Privafy deployments, monitor critical insights, threat alerts, and security trends. A single dashboard to define enforcement points and policies for all your locations, devices, and cloud applications using intuitive business rules. Privafy is a cloud-native, security-as-a-service solution that provides the ‘must-have’ capabilities a next-generation security service requires. With clone-proof endpoints and a fundamentally new encryption scheme, Privafy enables inbound/outbound controls and policy enforcement (including compute-intensive tasks like content inspection without any application-level impacts). Privafy solutions provide comprehensive data protection in all of today’s distinct user modalities, as data moves between locations, clouds, mobile and IoT devices at the edge. Privafy is a transformative, cloud-native solution for today’s most critical point of workload security: data that is traveling among systems, locations, devices, and IoT is highly vulnerable to attack.

Comprehensive, easy-to-use, affordable, and flexible, Privafy’s unique architecture and robust data security service support all the environments a network requires – cloud, headquarters and branches, home and mobile devices. Privafy offers a unique architecture that eliminates traditional key-provisioning into endpoints. Privafy encryption is cloud-assisted, requiring no static keys provisioning or administration. Keys are frequently rotated on a per-flow basis, minimizing any brute-force cracking attempts. Cumbersome mesh topologies and tunnel management are also completely eliminated. Encryption strength is an essential security capability that can be compromised in systems that use static keys – Privafy's Absolute Encryption gives you unmatched protection against unauthorized access to your data.

Cloud-Based Services

Privafy delivers — today’s most complete protection against cyber-attacks. By integrating full-stack security functionality into a suite of cloud-native services, Privafy is able to safeguard your Data-in-Motion within all business environments — at a fraction of the cost of legacy solutions. Privafy’s cloud-based portfolio of products delivers a full security stack as a service, replacing hardware- and software-based security with simple, easy-to-use, and innovative services. Privafy protects data-in-motion as it moves between networks, devices, and the cloud. It safeguards networks against cyber-attacks, phishing, and other cyber threats. And it does all this for a fraction of the cost of your current security stack.

Traditional firewalls incorporate static ports to allow services to traverse the network perimeter. Unused static ports can remain open and become notoriously vulnerable and difficult to manage. Privafy implements robust and flexible firewall functionality using dynamic perimeter controls. Only authorized applications are allowed to traverse the perimeter on a per-flow basis – once an application terminates, any new traffic will generate a new event – thereby eliminating breaches due to static ports.

Privafy CarrierEdge

Internet service providers – provided they can deliver convenient, comprehensive security services at the right price point. With CarrierEdge, they can. CarrierEdge delivers a complete security solution that sits at the network edge, providing full security services to network subscribers without requiring any client-side hardware or software. Subscribers simply activate the service on their devices, and CarrierEdge immediately begins protecting their data-in-motion will full encryption, advanced security services and customer-specific policy enforcement.

Security that customers can trust

CarrierEdge features a unique data privacy architecture that protects carriers and their customers from data breaches and information theft. Because customers retain control of their privacy keys in this architecture, carriers never “see” customer data as it passes through their network. And because carriers don’t store the customer’s data, they don’t need to take the costly measures to protect a customer’s data at rest.

Seamless integration with your existing security systems

CarrierEdge doesn’t require complex setup or integration. It works seamlessly with your existing SIEM or SOAR platform, importing logs, network insights and subscriber-level data directly into your security system for a holistic view of security across your network.

Comprehensive security at a fraction of the cost

CarrierEdge is a complete, end-to-end SECaaS solution that combines Privafy’s patented technology (e.g., automated key rotation) with standards-based security features to provide full protection for data-in-motion. CarrierEdge allows home and business subscribers to get professional security at an affordable price, with flexible licensing that scales seamlessly as their needs change.
