MaidSafe enters into Licensing Agreement with Identillect
Here at MaidSafe, we’re building the world’s first and only autonomous data and communications network in which all data will be encrypted and secured by default. This is cutting-edge technology that will be open for anyone in the world to use. We’re passionate about what we’re building because we’re focused on solving so many of the problems that we all experience with the current internet.
With our focus on solving very real problems, we’re happy to announce a partnership today with Identillect Technologies Corp (you can read the press release here).
During our journey, we’ve seen increasing interest from a number of businesses that are keen to explore the benefits of using SAFE Network technology to help them with very real opportunities to help customers in their own markets. They are enthusiastic about a couple of things in particular. First, the fact that we’re constantly working on our technology with the help of a large community of testers. Secondly, the fact that we’re already at the stage with our current Alpha 2 release of being able to provide secure access to a network using the SAFE Browser, in addition to providing mobile platform support.
Identillect is a company based in California and the leading provider of the email encryption service Delivery Trust, which empowers businesses to protect their business and customers’ critical information.
The licensing agreement that we’ve signed with Indentillect enables them to use and distribute an enterprise version of MaidSafe’s decentralised network for clients that require this additional level of security. With the self-configuring decentralised SAFE Network, they will be able to offer increased security to their clients as the Network works by securing their data by automatically splitting it into chunks, carrying out self-encryption and then storing the data at random locations that are selected by the Network. In addition, the partnership will explore the implications for this improved network security in relation to the impending General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
We see this as a great match because Identillect is continually focused on developing the most comprehensive security products on the market through a variety of partnerships. It has already created innovative email security solutions and secure scanning technology which focus on enhancing audit verification and protection. Combine that with the SAFE Network which provides state-of-the-art levels of data security and privacy and it’s a natural fit.
We’re looking forward to seeing how this relationship with Identillect develops. And it’s yet more validation that what we’ve created to date already solves many of the problems faced by modern enterprises.
