  • Stronger encryption key management: Capable of managing billions of sensitive data objects, StrongKey Tellaro provides secure key storage and management of encryption keys within each appliance’s standard FIPS 140-2 Level 2 certified Trusted Platform Module (TPM) or optional FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified Hardware Security Module (HSM) cryptoprocessor.
  • Goodbye, passwords: StrongKey implements new industry-standard authentication protocols from the FIDO Alliance, eliminating the insecurity and annoyance of passwords and preventing phishing attacks.

Arshad Noor, CTO, StrongKey, said: “StrongKey’s mission is to make breaches irrelevant by encrypting and securely storing data so that it’s useless to cybercriminals. It’s very gratifying to win this important award because it means the industry understands the critical importance of what we do: build strong encryption and authentication solutions that secure enterprise data.”
