Why we do what we do
Every year, businesses lose 2 billion dollars from data breaches and every third company in the world experiences insider attacks. Regarding document leaks, in 45% of all incidents, insiders take photos of screens or hard copies. A single insider incident costs enterprises an average of $15M.
All existing data protection solutions protect and control only file distribution. Unfortunately, no document protection solution can stop insiders from taking photos of documents. The most powerful way is to use watermarks, but they are not so difficult to erase and make the document anonymous.
To deter such leaks, we developed LeaksID, the technology that personalizes documents for each user each time they are displayed on a screen or printed out. LeaksID protects documents by invisible labeling using the steganographic method. From one page of text, LeaksID can make 27,000 copies for every person on Earth – that’s 205 trillion unique combinations.
Three IT experts with the great IT & Sales background founded a new Delaware CCorp called G-71.
We have been chosen from among 500 startups to become a part of the best B2B accelerator and get a status of alumni.
