Patent for Fornetix encryption key ‘breakthrough’

Fornetix, LLC announced the issuance of a patent from the US Patent Office which covers “breakthrough solutions for the management of encryption keys and other security objects.”

The inventors listed on the patent are Charles White, Joseph Brand and Stephen Edwards.

“The issuance of this patent, the first of many to come, highlights the disruptive role Key Orchestration will play in the encryption key management market,” said Steve Philson, Chief Operating Officer of Fornetix.

“It’s a great way to protect our Intellectual Property and identify how truly groundbreaking this solution can be for an organization’s data security efforts.”

Fornetix said the Key Orchestration ecosystem gives organizations “a new level of control over their encryption by combining a powerful policy engine, scalability for hundreds of millions of keys, automation of the key lifecycle, and a commitment to interoperability, extensibility, and industry standards …

“Instead of relying on outdated perimeter defenses that are ripe for data breaches, Key Orchestration has the critical combination of speed, capacity, and management tools that allow an enterprise to encrypt vastly more data than previously possible.

“When the entire network is encrypted, it leaves nothing of value for hackers to steal in the event of a breach.”
