SHIELD Crypto products utilize fully homomorphic encryption (FHE) technology to encrypt sensitive information throughout the entire data lifecycle.
From their inception, SHIELD products have been designed as cloud-native. Our products do not contain any legacy or pre-cloud technology. SHIELD products have been written entirely in-house so that the whole system integrates smoothly as the result of a single, coherent design.
Our products are built around APIs using a microservice architecture. The services our customers want to build can connect through our APIs to complete a seamless, frictionless solution.
Cloud-native deployments offer benefits beyond what legacy technologies in the cloud can provide. While legacy systems need to be taken offline to implement upgrades manually, SHIELD products are built using a microservices architecture and a Kubernetes orchestration layer. Microservices enable applications to be designed in a modular fashion to allow individual components of the system to be modified without disturbing other parts.
This containerization of services allows applications to run in different computing environments. Kubernetes is the orchestration layer that enables deployment of these services. This approach allows SHIELD products to offer maximum availability, scalability, fast onboarding, easy integration, and robustness without the need for costly manual interventions. All of these features increase reliability and affordability.
