WinMagic – our vision for better data security in a complex world.

It has been over 21 years since I founded WinMagic and started working on SecureDoc, a simple but sophisticated full disk encryption product.   Over the years I have learned a lot and developed insights and opinions regarding the state of data security and the role encryption should play in it.   Of course these insights and opinions are constantly being refined and adapted because the technology and threat landscape is also constantly changing. Nevertheless I think it is worthwhile to put them on paper at this point in time and go on record with my view: WinMagic’s vision statement.

In this paper I have outlined the challenges and opportunities in the data security landscape and our vision on how these challenges can be addressed with cryptography and beyond.   Please take the time to read it.   I think you will find it interesting.

 

I welcome your feedback.  Please send it to info@winmagic.com
