About Crypteron

In an era where data breaches dominate headlines, Crypteron was founded as a way to empower developers to secure their enterprise applications in the cloud or on-premises. We believe that data encryption and key management should be effortless, allowing teams to focus on what truly makes their applications unique.

We’re headquartered in sunny San Diego, California.
