“Data breaches continue to wreak havoc because traditional at-rest database security solutions do not protect data against modern-day attacks,” said Ameesh Divatia, co-founder and CEO, Baffle. “To guard against external and internal threats, businesses must use data-centric protection methods as data is created, and implement a ‘fail-safe’ approach instead of reacting to breaches. This opens up the need for a data protection service to provide a common security architectural model to protect data, enforce access control and minimize data exfiltration. This new data security layer will pave the way for contextual access to information.”

Baffle is the only security provider to enable secure data processing for third-party commercial applications and databases without modifying the application. Baffle Advanced Data Protection Service supports on-premise, hybrid and cloud deployments, and is available in AWS and Azure. Unlike other legacy encryption vendors, Baffle encrypts data at rest, in motion and finally, in use using its patented Secure Multi-Party Computation (SMPC) technique. In encryption, the industry-standard performance on system impact is about 30 percent. Baffle, in active customer deployments, has been able to reduce that impact to a fraction of the industry standard. 

Now in their 23rd year, the SC Awards are the industry gold standard of accomplishment for cybersecurity professionals, products and services. With the awards, SC Media recognizes the achievements of cybersecurity professionals in the field; the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities; and the vigilant work of government, commercial and nonprofit entities. Vendors and service providers who offer a product and/or service for the commercial, government, educational, nonprofit or other industries are eligible for the SC Awards’ Trust Award category.

The SC Awards gala honoring the winners attracts top professionals in the cybersecurity community and provides an invaluable opportunity for networking. To register for the 2019 SC Awards gala, please visit
