COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CertainSafe, the insanely secure file sharing platform, today announced that Congressman and former Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Pete Hoekstra has joined their advisory board of directors. The company looks to benefit from his deep experience in issues related to security and intelligence as they continue to educate the market on the benefits of MicroEncryption™ as well as MicroTokenization™.
CertainSafe's title of "insanely secure" comes from their proprietary MicroEncryption technology that uses MicroTokenization to encrypt each file individually down to the byte level if desired, something no other file sharing service can provide. This all but prevents the mass data breaches that have been in the news lately. Coupled with no software to download and advanced features such as audit trails and branding options, CertainSafe looks to make an impact on the growing file sharing segment.
Because of this, CertainSafe is the only file sharing service to offer PCI Level 1 DSS Certified data storage. This means all CertainSafe users can store HIPAA, PCI, PFI, PHI, PII as well as other types of sensitive data requiring compliance. Coupled with CertainSafe's industry-leading 100% money back guarantee, their users have complete peace of mind.
"In today's environment, securing data is more critical than ever before," said Rep. Pete Hoekstra. "Data breaches can have serious consequences for private individuals, companies and governments. I've closely investigated CertainSafe's proprietary technology and am confident that they have the most secure methods for sharing and storing data, bar none."
Congressman Pete Hoekstra is a former member of the United States House of Representatives from 1993 to 2011. During that term, he served honorably as the Chairman of the United States Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence from 2004 to 2007 where he was charged with the oversight of the United States Intelligence Community. Coupled with his 15 years business experience and an MBA from the University of Michigan's Ross School of Business, Rep. Hoekstra brings a rare blend of real-world business knowledge and public sector intelligence expertise.
"We're so honored to have the distinguished Congressman Hoekstra join CertainSafe's Board of Directors," says John Nachef, President of Transcertain, parent company of CertainSafe. "His many decades of public service and intimate knowledge of what it takes to secure our nation will be invaluable to our company. We can't think of someone better suited to advising our leadership team."
Other file sharing services have been in the news for having accounts hacked and data lost, usually through two ways. The first is having passwords compromised and accounts accessed by unauthorized individuals. The second is to have entire servers for file sharing services hacked from the backend, exposing all the files.
CertainSafe all but ensures mass data breaches are a thing of the past. Because each file is encrypted, hackers might spend a lot of time and only end up with one fragment of a file that has no association to other files. CertainStore utilizes a multi-layered defense that makes hacking data on a mass level mathematically improbable if not impossible:
1. Sensitive data elements are removed from original location and replaced with a MicroToken.
2. Data elements are MicroEncrypted utilizing customer-specific encryption algorithms.
3. MicroEncrypted data is scattered throughout dozens of servers, becoming unavailable to any form of unauthorized access, essentially turning the data invisible.
4. Perimeter defenses create seven or more levels of disruptive force to stop unauthorized access while all the above is occurring.
Other unique security methods CertainSafe uses includes a two-step login process that uses a personal picture and a personal phrase, both delivered from different servers. A challenge question follows that up to provide maximum login security.
CertainSafe is a necessity for any professional or company looking to ensure maximum security of their data or their clients' data. Industries such as health care, financial services, legal, accounting and many others should not trust their data to other file sharing services that are notoriously open to hacks and data breaches.
