Do you really know where your data is?
Data is the biggest asset for today’s companies. All our intellectual property is now digital and we exchange it so often we take the magic of networks and the internet for granted.
In the past, we exchanged data and intellectual property point to point through snail mail, faxes, courier, and other physical means. We were certain that the information exchange was secure and data loss and theft was rare.
The advent of networked computers in an office made the exchange and storage of information faster and more economical and we experienced the same feeling of security as we had with physical versions of data.
However, few people understood the risks and exposure inherent with sharing data across the internet – we assume it is as safe as sharing it within our corporate walls. We didn’t expect:
- The cloud service providers to build business models profiting from scanning the data exchange and profiling the users. We didn’t expect them to store copies of the data at exchange points.
- We didn’t expect friendly and unfriendly governments to capture the data exchange and store it.
- We didn’t expect an entire cloud-based software and data storage industry to be built with a business model of anonymizing and selling the data and user exchange profiles.
Cicer One has built SCUTE to address all these concerns. SCUTE enables companies to have the same point to point exchanges they experienced within their own walls while enjoying the benefits of easy and simple exchanges with selected external companies and users.
SCUTE’s answer to the question for you and your company stakeholders is – MY DATA IS OWNED BY ME!
