Startup Ionic Security takes the sweat out of securing documents

Well-funded startup Ionic Security has launched a data-protection service that guards encrypted documents no matter where they go until access is authorized by its policy engine based in the cloud, making it possible to protect data even if the files that contain it fall into the wrong hands.

Ionic controls access to the keys needed to unlock encrypted documents so only those who are meant to access the data have the ability to decrypt it. In addition, the service sets policies on what can be done with the data once it’s accessed.
