DropVault Ireland:34 Christchurch Place,
We understand that when given a choice as to whether to encrypt or not, many teams take shortcuts and choose not to - too many steps, tools too complicated. And when you think this data will likely be sitting on some server for years to come, that's a risk a business should not be taking. That's why we made encryption the default and never a choice. That's #securitybydesign and it's what Dropvault is all about.
We set about to build an app that allows any business, small or big to secure and share documents and messages with anyone and to do so with the best security available but without any need for IT resources and without the need to store, manage or share encryption keys.
Any business can answer 3 questions and 60 seconds later be ready to share with anyone, inside or outside their business using an app that’s as easy to use as email but as secure as Fort Knox.
