CYSEC SA introduces CYSEC ARCA Trusted OS

Confidential Computing Solution in One Click

LAUSANNE, Switzerland, June 7th, 2021 – CYSEC SA, a data security company, introduces CYSEC ARCA, a confidential computing solution to protect data in use. Enterprises that deal with critical or sensitive data struggle to protect data in the cloud and at the edge.

“CYSEC ARCA helps remove the barriers to adopting container framework for sensitive workflows with confidential data or data that is subject to data protection regulations” said Patrick Trinckler, co-founder and CEO of CYSEC. “Enterprises can move their sensitive data in the cloud or process it at the edge with a straightforward solution that is easy to deploy and drives business value.”

Introducing CYSEC ARCA Trusted Operating System (OS)

CYSEC ARCA Trusted OS is a trusted execution environment (TEE) for sensitive Kubernetes containers and workloads, with a hardware root of trust, that provides a higher level of data security while ensuring that key management is pain-free and performance is not compromised.

“CYSEC ARCA protects the confidentiality and integrity of sensitive data while it’s being processed. It enhances data security by generating hardware-based, unexportable encryption keys” said Alexandre Karlov, CTO at CYSEC. “CYSEC ARCA protects the full stack, from hardware, to kernel, to application. It is highly available, redundant, scalable, cost effective and DevOps friendly.”

CYSEC ARCA Trusted OS paves the way for cloud adoption and edge computing, answering the three-fold challenge of security, compliance, and simplicity. Business data, client data, patient data and digital assets— guardians of high-value data— can plug in CYSEC ARCA and use their data with peace of mind, knowing their entire computing environments can be trusted.
