We believe that data should be secure at its point of inception and remain secure throughout its lifecycle, and only unlocked to specifically authorized people or systems.
The gap we saw in the market is that most software developers are not experts in security or cryptography, so they frequently make honest mistakes during the development process, with a heavy reliance on ineffective infrastructure controls (such as disk encryption and transport layer security) which results in insecure products, and more seriously, loss of customer trust and reputational damage.
Our solution is designed to take the guesswork and complexity out of developing data encryption and privacy features for application developers, allowing our customers to build cryptographically sound products quickly, so they can focus their time and resources on building core functions and features that their customers want and ultimately strengthen customer trust and retention.
Ubiq is a principle and mission-driven organization who prides itself on building quality-rich products that make a difference for our customers.
We’re committed to helping our customers solve real, core business problems. We strive to be radically transparent – both within our organization and to our extended customer and partner family.
