A couple of weeks ago Ensafer was launched at DEMO Fall 2012 in Silicon Valley – as I have written in an earlier blog post. And this is how I described Ensafer there:

“Ensafer is an encryption service for the Cloud, and it offers users of Dropbox, Microsoft SkyDrive, Google Drive and alike to encrypt their data integrated in their service of choice, with all complexity hidden. Ensafer is end-to-end encryption technology, solving an unsolved demand – the encryption of files as you store, share and collaborate with them in the cloud. The groundbreaking, patent pending technology will enable users of these popular services to fully protect their data. Ensafer is security by design.”

After DEMO released our press release, we got more than 200 press mentions world wide. As an example, VentureBeat wrote the article: “The cloud isn’t as safe as you think; is end-to-end encryption the answer?” Please read it here if you would like to know more.

What I would like to emphasize here is a blog post by Financial Time called “Rising startups at DEMO Fall 2012”. In this article Ensafer was picked as one of six promising startups of the 75 companies from 14 countries presenting at the conference. Here is the heading of their article:

They chose the following six companies (in alphabetic order):

  • Ensafer: Encrypting the cloud.
  • Givit: Put an end to boring videos.
  • Oncam: Give people the power to speak up live.
  • Solstice: Virtualizes displays into a single pixel landscape.
  • Truphone: The fall of the roaming empire.
  • Taploid: Analyze your social net­work to give stories about your friends.

Here is the section describing Ensafer:

We are both humble and proud of this honor to be chosen as a “Rising startup” by Financial Times, and will do our best to show that we deserved this title. You can find the whole FT-article here, but you have to be a registered user at ft.com to read it.
