Many will say that the idea of creating a firewall and solid defense is not up to date. They will argue that today the threat is already inside the firewall, or what many call the insider threat.  In the commercial world, many financial institutions have reduced fraud through encrypting all data.  Today’s tools do not provide the latency and delay that many think when considering encryption.

Virgil Security has products that work with software developers to give them the ability to build secure products by using cryptography.   In fact, with today’s proliferation of sensors and other Internet of Things (IoT) devices, encryption is more important than ever.

During the discussion the topic of trust came up frequently.  Virgil Security can help developers provide trusted solutions to mathematically ascertain that you are dealing with the authentic data, device, and identity.
