About Crypteron

In an age where data breaches dominate the headlines, Crypteron was founded as a way to empower developers to secure their enterprise .NET and Java applications in the cloud or on-premises. We believe that pervasive data encryption should not be difficult, time consuming, expensive or error prone.

We’re headquartered in sunny San Diego, California.
