About Us

KAPALYA empowers businesses and their employees to securely store sensitive files at-rest and in-transit across multiple platforms through a user-friendly desktop and mobile application. This ubiquitous encryption solution protects all your corporate data by seamlessly encrypting files on:

  • End-points computers/mobile devices.
  • Corporate servers and public cloud providers.
  • With KAPALYA, users have the ability to share encrypted files across multiple cloud platforms.
  • Integerated with Box, Amazon S3, Google and Microsoft Azure.

KAPALYA Solution for Government

  • 01 End-point Security

      The encryption management platform creates a secure vault on user endpoints where:
    • A data classification engine scans the endpoint for sensitive files and prompts users to encrypt.
    • All data within the vault is encrypted.
    • Each file and folder is assigned a unique encryption key.
    • No additional disk or storage space is taken up on the endpoint.

    • The problem with using the encryption offered by public cloud vendors:
    • Vendors will encrypt files at-rest on their cloud, however, files sitting on a user’s endpoint are left unencrypted and vulnerable to attacks.
    • The cloud provider won’t protect your files on endpoints or private clouds.
    • Most cloud providers control the encryption keys, making data visible to their cloud administrators.
    • Some cloud providers allow customers to bring and manage their own keys. However, integrating with a cloud provider’s key management system requires programming which could result in time consuming efforts and if not configured properly, could expose the customer’s data.
    • The Encryption Management Platform is cloud agnostic and uses client-side encryption so files and folders are encrypted before leaving the endpoint. While in-transit, files are double encrypted as they move through an SSL tunnel. Since the user controls the keys, your files are protected from eavesdropping by any third-party, including your cloud storage provider.
    • A unique encryption key per file allows users to share protected files across cloud storage platforms and to other Encryption Management Platform users.

    • KAPALYA creates a secure vault for each user on your private cloud as well, to allow file and folder protection within your network.
    • Your internal corporate administrators do not have privileges to view end-user data.
    • User’s credentials are not tied to the enterprise’s active directory.

    • Key management done differently:
    • One unique key for each file and folder Keys are served in real-time.
    • Keys are never stored on endpoints, public clouds or private clouds. Once the function is complete, the keys are destroyed.
    • This approach allows for encrypted file sharing within and outside your network.
    • When file sharing, only the unique key for that file is shared, not the keys to all your files.

    • KAPALYA’s data classification engine scans 250+ file types for social security numbers, credit card numbers, state I.D.s and driver's’ license numbers. The engine is customizable to identify the sensitive data your organization handles.
    • If confidential data is found sitting on endpoints, the platform will prompt users with a list of files, and options to preview, encrypt or delete. The frequency of scans can be on-demand or programmed to run at certain times or intervals and can be configured based on business needs.
