Any corporation with sensitive or private information, or companies who are mandated to comply with data privacy laws (e.g. HIPAA, PCI, GDPR, PIPEDA). Common industries would include Financial, Medical, Legal, Pharmaceutical, Insurance as well as Executive bodies in all industries.
A system where the application-base and hardware integration are Privacy-Synchronized (PS). This system restricts all forms of access to add, modify, or adjust applications, operating system, or hardware parameters. A Sealed system also removes all third-parties from the transaction, storage, exchange, or interaction of your data, including Cicer One. A Sealed system defines your data as your property while ensuring bank-grade encryption in motion and military grade at rest.
Yes. We use banking grade encryption, automatically renewed every 90 days, to protect file transfers, text messages and login credentials. We apply military grade encryption to protect your data at rest. These encryption keys are owned by you and unique to every system.
SCUTE is installed on-site, at a location of your choice. This is typically at your primary place of business but may also be installed in a region that best aligns with any jurisdictional compliance requirements.
No. A single SCUTE system manages all of your connections to/from anywhere in the world.
Yes. The product is implemented primarily in two modes:
- A communications exchange gateway where corporations utilize SCUTE to share content inside or outside of the office with employees, clients and vendors. SCUTE provides the Air-Gap between external internet connections and any existing back-end server networks.
- A complete data center, corporate network, and user access control solution thereby replacing antiquated or non-existing back-end servers for complete corporate data management.
Since SCUTE only requires basic business skill-sets, all functions of SCUTE are easily managed and controlled by your department managers.
Yes. Our mobile app is available for Android and iOS.
Yes. The SCUTE chat application allows for individual and team messaging on Android and iOS and supported web browsers. Chat messages are encrypted and there’s no third party involved.
Network attached devices such as NAS are not Sealed or Privacy-Synchronized allowing uncontrolled integration of third party software/apps to run on these systems. In addition, Admin users have access to introduce changes that open up system vulnerabilities. These security failures expand the attack surface for hackers or malicious code like ransomware/malware to be installed. This is why nearly 70% of internet connected NAS devices are susceptible to being compromised. SCUTE is a Sealed system protecting you, your company, and your data.

No. Your files and text messages are stored on SCUTE and on SCUTE Backups – your data never touches a third-party service.
The term ‘Cloud’ refers to a shared pool of configurable computing resources such as networks, servers, storage, applications and services.
Using Cloud introduces security risks for ransomware and malware attacks, data breaches and unintended data exposure. And since these services may reside outside of your jurisdiction and possibly even outside of your country, there may be issues with data privacy compliance when storing employee and customer data in the Cloud.
Additionally, local and foreign governmental agencies can access your data without your consent or knowledge.
SCUTE is a Sealed system and addresses all of these security and privacy issues.
To protect your company information and system and user account settings, backups may be made locally, to our remote data center, or both. Independent schedules for local and remote backups can be set based on your security policy.
Locally: Simply insert a USB3.0 external memory device to create incremental backups. All backups are security protected with military grade encryption automatically with keys that you own.
Remote 1: SCUTE offers a patented off-premise backup to the country of your choice where you retain Property Ownership over your data. Encryption is automatically applied to your data in-transit and at rest with encryption keys that you own.
Remote 2: Additional SCUTE systems may be purchased and placed at a location that suits your corporate policy for adherence to privacy laws. The additional SCUTE system(s) will actively manage, mirror, and maintain high-reliability access to your company data while maintaining Property Ownership. Encryption is automatically applied to your data in-transit and at rest with encryption keys that you own.
Convergence Service: Depending on your corporate policy any combination or all backup features may be implemented.
Cloud-based backup services introduce vulnerabilities for data breaches in the exchange and storage of your data; third-parties generally do not automatically apply encryption for your data at rest or if they do, they apply encryption keys they own; your data can be stored by a third-party legal entity and often outside of your country; and in the event of a data breach or when your data is accessed by other parties, your rights to be notified are generally very limited if any exist at all.
SCUTE Patented Remote Backup ensures your data is automatically encrypted in-transit and at rest, with keys that you own, providing clear ownership that follows the laws of property.
The standard license includes 15 Internal users (employees) plus 50 Guest users (external). Additional seat licenses both Internal and/or Guest users may be purchased at any time.
Business continuity is critical when it comes to your digital information. From risks of theft or damage your business continuity requires a solid disaster recovery plan.

Backups may be made locally and/or remote to protect your information.
Locally: Simply insert a USB3.0 external memory device to collect iterative backups at an interval defined by your company policies. All backups are security protected with military grade encryption.
Remote 1: SCUTE offers a patented off-premise backup to the country and location of your choice that automatically defines the physical drives location and title transfer to your company there by extending your defined Property Ownership of your data.

SCUTE sends out notifications whenever shared content is changed. This feature also provides transparency and security for administrators to take the appropriate action.
Only users with the appropriate permissions’ setting are able to create or change account details. These ‘administrators’ can create a new user account. Once the account is created SCUTE will verify the new email address and require them to create a secure password. The new user can now access the system.
SCUTE provides a visual interface to manage multiple levels of permissions. When a user accesses the system, they are only aware of the folders (groups) that they are explicitly a member of. A user is added or removed from a group by using a simple drag-n-drop interface which is a visual representation of your company org structure.
