SecureAge brings its data security and enterprise encryption solutions to the UK
Leading supplier to Singapore government and military launches in UK with a spotlight on secure data and remote.
April 15, 2020 - SecureAge Technology a provider of next-generation data security, is expanding its global footprint with the launch of a new UK operation. The Singapore-based company – the preferred data security partner for the Singapore government and military – provides 100 percent, transparent file-level encryption to protect all information at rest, in use and in motion.
With the exponential growth in remote working as a result of COVID-19, SecureAge is ideally placed to ensure that data is useless if it falls into the wrong hands – whether by accident, through insider theft or by malware attack. Even if a home worker goes "rogue" or a laptop is lost or stolen and the username and password compromised, SecureAge ensures that it is still not possible to access or exfiltrate data. And with its transparent, universal encryption, data security is completely invisible to the user – removing the human element entirely.
The new UK business is headed up by experienced technical director Nigel Thorpe and sales director Nick Maslen, who has worked with the likes of Silent Circle, General Dynamics, InfoBlox and IBM. "With the current COVID-19 pandemic causing global chaos, the need for businesses to enable more people than ever before to work from home securely, has put the spotlight on data security," said Nigel Thorpe. "Home working increases the chances of theft or the accidental loss of sensitive data by the employee. Our flagship enterprise encryption solution, SecureData, ensures that lost or stolen data is useless because it cannot be decrypted once it is outside the control of the organisation."
While persistent encryption inherently protects data, SecureAge's ‘process execution control’ blocks malware, ransomware and keyloggers. "Rather than taking the conventional approach of identifying bad stuff then blocking it, SecureAge simply blocks all previously unknown processes," said Thorpe. "Keyloggers attempting to steal your corporate VPN passwords simply don't stand a chance."
"We established SecureAge back in 2003 with the aim to make PKI-based encryption an inherent component of data protection with no trade-off between security and usability," said Dr. Teow-Hin Ngair, Founder and CEO at SecureAge. "Our ability to protect all of the information all of the time – at rest, in use and in motion – is well- proven through collaboration with the government and military of Singapore, as well as with government offices in Tokyo and Hong Kong, which depend on our technology to prevent the compromise of extremely sensitive data. Following the opening of our US offices last year, we are now focused on positioning SecureAge in the UK, initially focusing on core markets such as government, finance and energy."

About SecureAge Technology
SecureAge Technology is a rapidly growing data security company that places security and usability on equal footing. Headquartered in Singapore, we are trusted by governments, research institutes, and forward-thinking organizations to protect them from the most advanced and persistent cyber threats in the world. What makes SecureAge different, is we have built a reputation for data-centric and intuitive security solutions that protect data not only when it is stored, but also when it is in use, and in transit. We’ve achieved this by holding strong reign on our belief that users shouldn’t have to become cybersecurity experts to escape data liabilities. Instead, encryption should be inherent, invisible, and instinctive. To protect data when it is most vulnerable, security must take place at the file-level, operate silently in the background, and support the way in which people collaborate. That’s why our users can divert their resources to focus on other challenges – SecureAge users enjoy 100% file-level security, every file, every place, and every time.
