As privacy law tries to keep up with an increasingly complex technological environment, Empyrean Security, the brainchild of Stevan Vujovic, provides a complete solution to protecting digital information.

Businesses of all sizes are witnessing an explosion in the volume of data they hold. Whether it is the result of the internet, email, or increasingly heavy and media-rich application software, there is a massive growth in the volume of data all around. With these ever-increasing amounts of data to be stored, real threats of data loss as well as increasingly onerous duties under the Privacy Act 2003, it is little wonder that data protection has become such a high priority for many individuals and businesses.

The premise of Empyrean is simple: it allows users to take their data, usually in the form of folders or individual documents, encrypts them, and stores it securely. Indeed, for users it is simple to use, and the software even allows controlled sharing of documents and/or folders. This is done without sharing keys, one of the major weaknesses of any encryption based security system.

Encryption is the process of encoding messages or information in such a way that only authorized parties can read it. Encryption software such as Empyrean uses a complex series of mathematical algorithms to protect and encrypt information, and is a simple and effective means to protect both your own or others’ personal data. The information may be stored on your systems or on systems hosted elsewhere.

The driving force in moving to encryption based systems is the move to storing information online and under the control of third parties. Google, Microsoft, Amazon and many others are now offering free and paid online storage. The user has no knowledge whether that third party is accessing your information. Indeed, information leaked by Edward Snowdon has shown that these companies have readily accessed user information and passed it on.
