Fortanix is building a new security category with its Runtime Encryption(R) technology using Intel SGX. Just like encryption today protects data at rest and data during motion, Runtime Encryption(R) keeps keys, data, and applications completely protected even when infrastructure has been compromised and even root users are malicious. Fortanix's Self-Defending Key Management Service (SDKMS) is a next-generation cloud native solution for your enterprise encryption needs. It offers key generation, management, distribution, encryption-as-a-service, HSM, KMIP, and tokenization all rolled-in as a single product the highest possible level of security and cloud scale. Available as both FIPS certified appliance and a globally available SaaS (with Equinix's strong SLA), SDKMS offers incredible simple central management, server-side load balancing, central tamper-proof logging, RESTful APIs, and Runtime Encryption(R) plugin to run custom code. Fortanix's Runtime Encryption(R) Platform allows customers to bring any docker container and run them securely inside Intel SGX without any modification. It allows customers to share data with each other without losing control of the data, run analytics on sensitive data, run applications securely in remote cloud, move PII-heavy sensitive data to public cloud, etc. Fortanix's Enclave Development Platform (EDP) allows customers to write Rust code to run natively as SGX enclaves. Supported by mainline Rust compiler, developers find EDP as the easiest and the most secure way of developing new applications. In the short time, Fortanix has developed strategic partnership with Equinix and IBM cloud and counts multiple F50 companies as its customers. Fortanix is a Gartner Cool Vendor and also was runner up in RSA Innovation Sandbox among 500+ security companies where judges called it "holy grail of security". Fortanix has more than ten patents pending for its innovation.
