InfoAssure, Inc., in business for over 12 years, is an Information Assurance (IA) software technology development company located in Annapolis, Maryland providing government and commercial customers with enterprise level Information-Centric Security (InfoCenSec®) solutions. InfoAssure, Inc. developed patented software technology called Need2Know® (N2K). N2K is based on the Information-Centric Security (InfoCenSec®) model and incorporates the company's three core patents. The patents, Information-Centric Security (US7,715,565), Cryptographic Key Construct (US7,739,501), and Cryptographic Key Management (US7,711,120), are the result of the company's research and development conducted under a competitive contract award and three-phase participation in the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program within the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD).
Need2Know® Provides Persistent Cryptographic “Need-To-Know” Protection of Data At-Rest or In-Transit, Enabling “Need-to-Share” in the Cloud
Need2Know® (N2K) is patented software technology that provides data owners with an easy to manage process for tagging (labeling) and transforming data into self-protecting data objects before storing and sharing it in the cloud. The N2K Administration System using a patented label management process, allows data owners to create and manage virtual Communities of Interest (COI) and to manage the enforcement of access privileges to their streaming, structured or unstructured data assets in their COIs and beyond. By using its persistent crypto labeling process N2K enables a highly efficient and granular solution for enterprise data access control anywhere in the Cloud. The N2K cryptographic enforcement provides an unparalleled combination of Device, Role and Content-Based Access Control with open standard Suite B algorithms and multiple layers of FIPS 140-2 encryption of the object. N2K achieves higher efficiency over identity based access control (IBAC) solutions because they require extensive net-centric resources, while the patented N2K data access enforcement process occurs at the object level only when a user attempts to use/open the data object, regardless of where the data is stored. N2K is an Information-Centric Security (InfoCenSec®) solution and perfect for virtual data access control and protection in the Cloud.
With Need2Know® data owners can control who, can see what data, on which device, when and where.
