Symmetry has developed a new type of secure container called Blox that protects applications from data breaches as well as malware. Blox also redefines Privacy as a Service by allowing application developers to focus more on functionality and less on security minutia. It does this by segmenting data into micro-data containers, which reduces a system’s attack surface from the sum total of all applications down to just: a) the operating system’s security kernel and b) Blox’s trusted web application. Blox runs on Windows-based cloud platforms and works for content providers, application developers, and users guaranteeing sensitive information.
