PIICRYPT Feature of AgeCheq Cloud Makes Data Breaches Unrealistic

By CIOReview | Thursday, March 3, 2016

YORK, PA: With data breaches becoming a common occurence in today’s world, PrivacyCheq has recently highlighted an important feature called ‘PIICRYPT’ in its AgeCheq 3.0 privacy compliance cloud service.  PIICRYPT empowers apps and websites with the ability to store each user’s 'Personally Identifiable Information' (PII) in an encoded vault which has a unique AES256 bit key within  Amazon's highly secure S3 cloud.  This feature makes PIICRYPTed data difficult and unrealistic to exploit.

PrivacyCheq provides innovative Privacy Enhancing Technology (PET) solutions covering mobile, desktop and IoT devices. PIICRYPT is easily compatible and irrespective of platform, supports all websites, mobile apps and games. Through its platform-agnostic, AgeCheq helps the mobile app industry to easily comply with data privacy regulations like Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The PII-based solution is built on the simple fact that hackers are attracted to easy targets that can be exploited for monetary gain if they get lucky and break in. The companies that use the PIICRYPT solution helps them in removing the monetary gain aspect and making their data which is stored under ‘enhanced security’ unattractive to hackers.

Roy Smith, CEO, PrivacyCheq says, "Because successful sites and apps use personal user information to add value and engagement for users, these companies are very concerned about data breach, and many of them have asked AgeCheq for help.  The PIICRYPT technology is our solution to dramatically reduce the likelihood of a data breach of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) happening to our customers."
