Scram Software wins “Cyber Security Leader of 2017” award from Cyber Defense Magazine
Scram Software has been announced as a “Cyber Security Leader of 2017” by Cyber Defense Magazine.
Linus Chang, the founder of Scram Software, was appropriately thrilled with the acknowledgement. “We’ve been working hard on developing our ScramFS encrypted file system, which is the enabling technology for a whole range of encryption tools and technologies. Our goal is to provide the highest level of cryptographic security for data stored in the cloud, and to help companies comply with tricky legislation such as GDPR, and to put a stop to data breaches. Working with some of the world’s leading cryptographers in Australia and the USA has been an intense but amazing journey. What started off in 2014 as an idea and vision to secure the world’s data in the cloud is now turning into a reality, and we’re elated that the commercial world and a major publication like Cyber Defense Magazine has recognized how unique our achievements are.”
“Scram Software secures the cloud against a constant barrage of hacking, intellectual property theft, sabotage, accidental deletion, copyright infringement and identity theft,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Executive Producer, Cyber Defense Magazine.
A key tenet of Scram’s strategy has been to work with the cryptographic community in order to produce a trustworthy and secure cryptosystem. A major problem with many of today’s encryption products is a lack of trustworthiness – vendors do not specify what security they are actually providing, nor do they disclose who designed the systems. This problem, known as snake oil, means that users of cryptography have no idea whether the product provides real security or is just a placebo.
In complete contrast, Scram Software has worked closely with Dr Ron Steinfeld of Monash University to carefully design ScramFS, and with several other cryptographers from other leading universities to peer-review the system. Those reports are in the process of being made publicly available.
“We already have customers waiting to use ScramFS to ensure the security of their data. The next few months, as we proceed to launch will be exciting to say the least!” added Chang.
