The energy sector relies upon a distributed infrastructure – off-shore and remote land-based locations – that necessitate vital connectivity that’s reliable in the harshest environments, highly secure over any network, and interoperable with multiple systems. Exploration and production (E&P) companies faced with price volatility are seeking ways to improve the operational efficiency, well productivity, and financial return on their investment, all while adhering to heightened reporting rules.
Cyphre’s data protection technology enables E&P companies to securely communicate vital production information over any IP network, such as the Secure Oil Information Link, to corporate data centers or private cloud.
Distributed infrastructure with varied connectivity needs
Unlimited file sizes and data streams
Stringent reporting and regulatory requirements
Ability to share files using secure links
Guaranteed 100% cloud data availability and control
Cyphre’s BlackTIE® augments vulnerable single encryption keys with hardware-encrypted Black Keys to render hijacked keys useless, thus nullifying potential threats.
BlackTIE® operates transparently and is invisible to the end user for a seamless user experience. Its heightened security does not hinder the ability of businesses and their employees to be productive, nor does it limit collaboration.
Rather than using a single encryption key to protect files, BlackTIE® uses a unique encryption key for each individual file as an extra layer of security.
Many enterprises wish for their IT departments to manage their keys; BlackTIE® allows the option for total control of encryption keys.
Cyphre’s BlackTIE® encryption technology protects the privacy of clients’ information through the use of Black Keys. These hardware-encrypted keys add an extra layer of security on top of standard TLS encryption. This approach guarantees that only those systems with verifiable keys can view files. Unlike software-only encryption, Black Keys are never readable in plaintext, nor are they exposed in memory. Even if a threat event occurs and an attacker is able to access the main memory buffers, Cyphre’s Black Keys are still protected and rendered completely unusable. Further, Cyphre does not require a threat to be detected in order to instantiate protection. The nature of Cyphre’s blackened keys ensures that they are unusable and indecipherable at all times.
