Detailed description

FortKnoxster is a cyber-security company, specialized in developing secure and encrypted communication solutions. The company has developed a unique encryption platform, which is primarily aimed at the B2C market.

The platform comes as an E-a-a-S solution (Encryption-as-a-Service).

FortKnoxster has been designed with a unique architecture and features, which enables everybody to use our platform for all their communications and data-storage needs.

At FortKnoxster, security and privacy has the highest priority. This is why we have built the FortKnoxster encryption, privacy and secure architectures by design. Unlike most other online businesses, it is our main goal to protect our users’ privacy, which we are very proud of.

Problem

Needless to say, there are many potential dangers (and ethical issues) associated with the proliferation of digital profiling, from hacking, to discrimination, to an Orwellian surveillance state. There’s a big difference between what companies could and should know. 

Online activity leaves footprints - log files, access entries or data that is created in the systems they used. Once these privacy controls are rolled back, Internet Service Providers will be able to sell the information they capture about how you and your patrons use the Internet. 

The loss of online privacy is making it a lot easier for IT-criminals as those giant companies on a regular basis get hacked and all (your) data are now in the hands of potential hostile organisations or people who seek to profit from your data.

Solution

  • FortKnoxster is extremely easy to use as it requires no extra plug-in instalments what so ever. Users are literally up running within minutes and can start to enjoy the extreme safety level and intuitive interface. 
  • It is also easy to invite friends, family or business-partners into the platform. 
  • FortKnoxster was designed to be used by everyone and hence there is no need for technical knowledge in order to use the platform.
