Announcing the new Crypteron Community Edition

Today, we’re pleased to announce the release of a new Community Edition of Crypteron.

The Crypteron Community Edition is 100% free…forever.

Based on feedback from the community, we’ve also eliminated all of the speed limits, giving you blazing fast encryption on both structured and unstructured data.

What is Crypteron?

Crypteron is a back-end data security platform for instant, pervasive encryption and a one-click data-breach response. Just a couple of lines of C# or Java code enable encryption and key management, saving 12-18 months of error-prone custom engineering. Behind the scenes, Crypteron takes care of data encryption, tamper protection, key management, key rotations, access controls, audit trails and more. Watch this short demo video or take a look at the Community Edition page to learn more and feel free to contact us with any questions (or use the chat widget below). Seriously, don’t be a stranger. We love this stuff!

Why are we doing this?

Everyone at Crypteron was tired of hearing about data breaches in the news every day. We realized that most  backend developers don’t have a giant bank or retail corporation supporting them with massive cybersecurity budgets. Instead, they either incorrectly assume that cloud providers will secure their sensitive data-at-rest or try to do so themselves using built-in encryption libraries and a lot of custom code… and do it wrong, putting the entire community at risk.

We got together and decided that enterprise-grade data security shouldn’t be a luxury. As a developer you shouldn’t have to choose between adding new features to your backend application and making it secure. Really secure. As in automatically encrypting and signing your sensitive data, encrypting your encryption keys offsite, and having a single button you can click in the event of a data breach secure. That level of security should be available to everyone in the community regardless of budget and without requiring months of risky, custom coding.

By providing the Community Edition for free, we hope to foster secure innovation as well. Do you have a great idea for the next big medical, financial or government-related app? Great! Build it. Powered by the free Community Edition, it’s easy to protect your data against hacks and it’s easy to be in compliance with HIPAA, PCI, CJIS or several others. Dream big and don’t let these fears keep you from your moon shot.

How can you make a difference?

I’m glad you asked! The community is only as strong as its weakest member. Securing your apps with Crypteron won’t stop hackers from stealing data from the dozens of other insecure apps we use every day. So don’t just add Crypteron to your apps; bring it up at the next work meeting; present it at your local developer meetup; and let us know about any ideas you have for getting the word out there. With the free Community Edition, people have no reason to ignore data security and put themselves and their customers at risk.

Share this announcement on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+ and help us make the community more secure.

  1. Implementing the CE version myself today. Like most, will likely end off with my suggested route to clients being the paid plans. But, this does provide in my opinion marketing agencies with no excuse when it comes to potentially jeopardizing client data. I can’t thank you guys enough in addition to the product for your support in making the internet a more robust, secure form of communication and, community.
