Cybersecurity trailblazer Keyavi Data wins three coveted Global InfoSec Awards during RSA Conference 2021

Keyavi Takes Top Honors for Cybersecurity Startup of the Year, Hot Company in Data Security and Self-Protecting Data Technology

#RSAC #CybersecResilience

DENVER—May 17, 2021 – Keyavi Data Corp., a cybersecurity innovator whose game-changing technology is transforming the very nature of the data security industry, announced today at RSA’s 2021 virtual conference that it swept three prestigious Cyber Defense Magazine Global Infosec Awards categories: Cybersecurity Startup of the Year, Hot Company in Data Security and Self-protecting Data Security.

The magazine’s 9th annual awards recognize global infosec companies at the forefront of security technology innovation. Keyavi was honored for creating breakthrough, one-of-a-kind technology that infuses every piece of data with self-protection, intelligence and self-awareness by embedding multilayered security into the actual data itself. It is the only company in the world to have not only reached, but surpassed, a previously unattainable goal for universal data security.

Under development for years before launching last year, the company’s API platform and a full suite of applications riding on that platform enable Keyavi-infused data to think for itself, secure itself, continually report its whereabouts and refuse access to unauthorized users.  It also allows data to stay under its owner’s control – forever – no matter who has it, where it’s stored or how many copies were made.

“The first reaction I usually get from IT professionals is an incredulous, ‘You can’t possibly have done this,’” said Elliot Lewis, CEO of Keyavi Data. “While it’s one thing to encrypt data, it’s a massive paradigm shift to make data itself enabled to be the centerpoint of all security. Up until now, the entire basis of the cybersecurity market is that ‘data can not protect itself.’ Now it can. This is the panacea that the world has dreamed about for a long time. As a long-standing chief Information security officer (CISO) and chief cyber architect myself, this is the toolset I always needed. Now it’s reality. And it changes everything!

I’d like to personally thank the Global InfoSec judges, on behalf of everyone at Keyavi, for recognizing the enormous, evolutionary step our technology represents for the entire cybersecurity industry in fighting cyber crime and enabling people to control their own data’s destiny,” Lewis added.

The judges – a panel of CISSP, FMDHS and CEH-certified security professionals – based their independent votes on the relevancy, ingenuity and potential global impact of all entries.

“We scoured the globe looking for cybersecurity innovators that could make a huge difference and potentially help turn the tide against the massive growth in cyber crime,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine. “Keyavi Data embodies three major characteristics judges look for in winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help stop the next breach. Keyavi Data is absolutely worthy of these three prestigious awards,” he added.
