About NUTS Technologies

NUTS Technologies is a dual-use tech company that tackles the challenges of data security in traditional and cloud environments. Their innovative solutions protect sensitive information regardless of location, cloud dependence, or infrastructure limitations. Unlike conventional approaches, NUTS empowers users with secure, independent data storage, sharing, and access control, even in contested or disconnected scenarios. Think of it as "data armor" that keeps your information safe, no matter where the world takes you.

Problem statement

Conventional cybersecurity models offer many products to provide strong network and server perimeters around data. Over time, the complexity of these environments becomes unmanageable and costly due to never ending cycles of iterative upgrades, increasing compatibility challenges, and higher knowledge requirements. Adversaries choose to drill into select weak security perimeters of high-value targets for the best risk-rewards. Conventional security models have failed to prevent many high-profile incidents such as SolarWinds, OPM, Colonial Pipeline, WannaCry, NotPetya and Maersk. Administrators' access to sensitive data has become a growing insider threat risk. Traditional vetting has failed to predict or prevent leaks, such as Snowden, Manning, or the most recent Massachusetts Air National Guard incident.

NUTS safeguards critical data and mitigates external and insider threats. NUTS treats data as a first-class citizen, and NUTS eases the burdens of cybersecurity on the operator by automating tasks like advanced encryption, key management and secure data sharing. NUTS security travels with the data so the security profile is cryptographically enforced in any computing node, from data center to the edge, whether network connected or not, thus allowing maximum flexibility for the operator and full assurance to administrators.

Milestones

May 2024

Department of Commerce, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) awards NUTS Tech a SBIR Phase I

The Department of Commerce, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) develops and promotes measurement, standards, and technology which the DoD and Commercial sectors rely upon for establishing industry standards. A successful performance of this award helps to validate our approach and uniqueness of our technology. The SDFT technology essentially eases the burdens of upgrading ciphers as they change and helps to address President Biden’s NSM-10 goals of easing the burden of transitioning to post-quantum cryptography and beyond. The project goal is to research and develop the capability to integrate NIST post-quantum primitives into SDFT.

May 2024

Department Air Force awards NUTS Tech a SBIR Phase I for SDFT.

The Department Air Force awarded NUTS Technologies a Open Topic SBIR Phase I on their Structured Data Folding with Transmutation (SDFT) protocol. The goal of this project is to research and develop the ability to integrate the SDFT protocol into existing DAF systems. SDFT is a protocol designed and used by NUTS Technologies in their existing product the NutManager. It’s capabilities eases the transitions between ciphers.
