Rewriting the Rules of Data Security
HOPZERO Inc., a security startup in Austin, TX, has developed a revolutionary solution that secures private data by controlling the distance it can travel. We call it DataTravel™ security.
Despite 30 years of evolving firewall and security products, data compromise remains epidemic. First, firewalls were deployed. When that was insufficient, they were followed by Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) that revealed harmful digital signatures sneaking through the firewall, followed by Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) that quarantined those signatures, followed by Antivirus, Identity and Access Management (IAM) and Multifactor Authentication (MFA). Despite these improvements, devastating cyber exploits occur every day evidenced by the morning newspaper and the evening news – every day!
Part of the problem lies in unfortunate beliefs: That criminal hackers are
- Omniscient (all knowing)
- Omnipresent (everywhere at once) and
- Omnipotent (all powerful) leading to a futile and impotent status quo.
At HOPZERO, we don’t solve world hunger, but we can make sure your most vital server data cannot get out of the data center — and if an attempt is made — we will provide an actionable alarm, catching phish and ransomware criminals.
Current methods have resulted in higher costs and complexity without providing absolute protection from cyber-attacks. The industry estimates that cybersecurity will soon eclipse IT spending by a factor of four. Government and private industry need an effective solution. The exposure to litigation and penalties for loss of data is staggering. The world cannot afford to allow these breaches to continue.
Instead of trying to keep the bad actors out, HOPZERO keeps important data in, drawing a line where data is discarded before it can exit a perimeter — a radical paradigm shift. HOPZERO provides security at the TCP/IP network layer, taking advantage of protocol rules to limit how far data packets can travel, ensuring sensitive data is protected when all other security measures fail.
HOPZERO software is industry- and technology-agnostic and complements existing security products. DataTravel™ Security is sold to commercial and public-sector customers (including national defense agencies) who need to secure their networks against data breaches. HOPZERO is seeking distribution partnerships for the Internet of Things (IoT) business and consumer markets.
DataTravel™ Security is a new category. No other cybersecurity solution uses data lifespan to create a secure radius for data on the network. HOPZERO offers a “Protocol Level Security” solution vs. traditional application or hardware tools. HOPZERO has a granted patent May 2020 for the proximity security control solution.
DataTravel™ Security suite of products is a Software as a Service (SaaS) based security solution.
HOPZERO has a granted utility patent as of May 2020.
There seems to be no end in sight for network security breaches, regardless of industry, geography, or budget. Our experienced information security professionals had enough. With decades of experience between them, HOPZERO’s founders and team decided to put their intelligence, innovation, and tenacity to work and thereby put hackers on notice.
