Patented Key Management Technology

Patented split-key encryption technology
Only Porticor uses a split key to encrypt every data object. One part of the key is hosted by Porticor, while the second part – the master key – is held by you. The result is that you control your data and do not need to trust anyone but yourself with your keys.
Automated Key Management
As part of the split-key encryption technology, Porticor generates its keys automatically, for ease of management along with maximum security
Secure, cloud-based key management
The Porticor Key Management Software as a Service is fully cloud-based with no data center deployment required. Split-key encryption enables Porticor to offer the convenience and low cost of cloud-based key management, without compromising security.
Patented Homomorphic key management
Designed for the highest degree of security against key theft by enabling the keys to be used in their encrypted state. With Porticor’s Key Management Service, your master key is never exposed in the cloud.
