About IronCAP™ and IronCAP X™:
IronCAP™ is at the forefront of the cyber security market and is designed to protect our customers from cyber-attacks. IronCAP‘s patent-pending cryptographic system is designed to protect users and enterprises against the ever-evolving illegitimate and malicious means of gaining access to their data today as well as in the future with the introduction of powerful quantum computers. Based on improved Goppa code-based encryption it is designed to be faster and more secure than current standards. It operates on conventional computer systems, so users are protected today while being secure enough to safeguard against future attacks from the world of quantum computers. An IronCAP™ API is available which allows vendors of a wide variety of vertical applications to easily transform their products to ensure their customers are safe from cyber-attacks today and from quantum computers in the future.
IronCAP X™, a cybersecurity product for email/file encryption, incorporating our patent-pending technology for commercial. The new product has two major differentiations from what is in the market today. Firstly, many offerings in today’s market store users secured emails on email-servers for recipients to read, making email-servers a central target of cyber-attack. IronCAP X™, on the other hand, delivers each encrypted message end-to-end to the recipients such that only the intended recipients can decrypt and read the message. Consumers’ individual messages are protected, eliminating the hackers’ incentive to attack email servers of email providers. Secondly, powered by our patent-pending IronCAP™ technology, we believe IronCAP X™ is the world’s first quantum-safe end-to-end email encryption system; secured against cyberattacks from today’s systems and from quantum computers in the future. Consumers and businesses using IronCAP X™ will be protected by tomorrow’s cybersecurity today.
