BitSpray'' Corporation Issued U.S. Patent for Next Generation Cyberdefense Weapon
by BWW News Desk - Apr 16, 2014

CANTON, Miss., April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ BitSpray Corporation, world leader in novel network cybersecurity solutions, announced the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) granted the Company's first landmark patent. The patent imparts an advanced communication network technology that addresses a wide range of cybersecurity issues by making the scientific principle of 'data dispersion' a practical problem solver. No complete dataset exists anywhere; it is transmuted into data primitives, a 'bit-soup,' of partial datasets stored in multiple locations. A vital component of this unique technology is the Data Shell Game which defines a standard for obfuscating data in a dispersed network topology where no complete dataset ever travels over a single network path, nor is it stored in a single storage location. The Data Shell Game turns BitSpray-protected networks into cryptographic networks that empower information to protect itself, thereby making it a near-impossibility to ever suffer catastrophic loss of, or unauthorized access to, BitSpray-protected data. Information, thus protected, is safe from attacks by state-supported foreign hackers as well as trusted insiders like Edward Snowden. Hackers can't access what they can't find, nor can they steal what isn't there. (more...)
