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.
