It's not a secret that information is one of the most valuable resources nowadays. Companies are looking for every possible means of protecting sensitive data and investing more and more in cybersecurity. Therefore, the information security market is growing rapidly. According
to experts, its size is expected to reach $ 202 billion in 2021.
One of the most well-known data protection technologies is digital watermarking. It is a way of marking electronic documents, printouts, photographs, and other files with visible tags. Watermarks provide several security levels at once and are integrated into most VDRs (Virtual Data Rooms). In some cases, watermarking can help identify insiders. For this purpose, each digital watermark added should be connected with the username of the person who works on a document copy. In G-71 Inc., we enhanced the watermarking system and developed the LeaksID solution. Its main difference is invisibility. The human eye cannot see the unique tags used by our system to mark files. If the document is shared with another person, the solution instantly creates a new copy with different personalized tags. Using these tags, LeaksID can determine who and when accessed a particular file, and if a data breach occurs, the system accurately identifies its source. There are several reasons why we decided that invisible marking would be a better solution.
