At last a total hardware and software security solution for the enterprise cloud market

Design SHIFT, building digital security, today announced its collaboration on a large volume project with Cryptyk, expert in cloud software encryption to the enterprise world. ORWL™ devices are due to ship come January 2018. The combination of both companies expertise will allow the ultimate data protection in enterprise storage from external threats, viral threats, internal threats, intercept threats and operational failures.

Cryptyk’s cloud security and storage platform has only one potential security vulnerability in the physical end-point security of the PC hardware. By offering ORWL devices, Cryptyk will offer the Enterprise world a physically secured, trusted endpoint on a hybrid blockchain network. Benefits of deploying ORWL are the advantage of storing critical keys in the secure element, its tamper protection, rogue nodes prevention, and user access control.

“We strongly believe that integrating ORWL hardware with the Cryptyk hybrid blockchain solution for the enterprise world is what the market has needed. We are thrilled to provide Cryptyk the ultimate in hardware security to the cloud” says Olivier Boireau, CEO of Design SHIFT.

ORWL comes with an embedded HSM and requires two factors of authentication (a key and a password) to make sure that unauthorized users cannot access the device. ORWL is protected against physical attacks with a tamper-proof casing and the private key is erased if any of the PC’s physical or logical security controls are breached.

Dr. Adam Weigold, Cryptyk’s CEO comments: “We believe in the complementary business relationship with Design SHIFT. With our respective expertise, both companies share the same vision of the enterprise security market. We believe that with ORWL devices we can provide a total secure solution if our customers want to implement our decentralized cloud storage technology with secure end-point hardware.
