Hackers love legacy controls!

Traditional IT controls focus on locking down networks, devices, and people. All of this is done in the name of protecting data. But, once files are moved, shared, or stolen, the data is no longer protected. Even worse, these controls get in the way and frustrate business users to the point they intentionally work around them. Anchor inverts the equation by baking protection into the data, invisible to the business users (like antivirus), so that files are free to travel and security is out of the way.

GBS - Datanchor Patended


Patented combination of 3 well-known technologies

Anchored data is self–protecting. Each Anchored file is individually FIPS-validated encrypted at rest, in transit, and even while in use (saving does not generate plain text). Even if the files are stolen, they would never be more than cypher text.

Patented heartbeat technology constantly verifies access rules in real-time based on a myriad of data sources such as Active Directory, geo-location, etc. When an access rule is broken, Anchor instantly revokes access. Even while the file is in use. Trust is never assumed, even after a file is open.

Real-time tracking of sensitive data. Audit trails of each request, including physical location. A true chain of custody for digital data.


Anchor brings world-class data security to everyday users.

Anchor is a simple, turnkey, low-cost way for organizations to achieve state-of-the-art data security without getting in the way.

Add a Critical New Layer to Security

Firewalls, NTFS Permissions, and MDM are not enough. Bake Zero Trust principals like MFA directly into your files to protect your sensitive financials, PHI, PII, trade secrets, and other intellectual property.

GBS - Datanchor Reduce Cyber Liability

Reduce Cyber Liability

Cyber Insurance premiums are raising, as well as the requirements for obtaining coverage. At the same time, coverage is reducing. Most insurance companies require MFA to get coverage and exclude paying ransoms for data that is stolen. Satisfy MFA while also eliminating the ability for your data to be stolen and used against you.

Give patients the care they deserve. Let Anchor handle the rest.

We understand that patient care is the number one priority. That’s why Anchor makes it easy to share and protect PHI. Anchor lets you focus on doing what you do best, which is giving quality care. With Anchor, you won’t have to worry about sensitive data being stolen, because we encrypt the data itself. Only users who follow access rules are able to read the content of the data. Anchor works in the background, without changing how you work. Rest easy knowing that your data will be secured
with military grade protection.

How Anchor Supports HIPAA

Anchor’s built in classification system and true data-centric security makes it easier than ever to manage and control PHI, even if it leaves your network. Sensitive data is identified and anchored. Only users who follow the access rules of the protected data are given access. If access rules are not met, the data remains encrypted with a military-grade cipher. Anchor works behind the scenes, remaining invisible to the user and not affecting the way they work. This means less effort at an affordable cost.

No Hassle With Anchor’s Password Free Protection.

Anchor offers strong, transparent data security that ensures your financial documents are protected from internal and external threats.

Keeping Financial Data Secure Has Never Been This Easy.

Financial departments deal with highly sensitive data, including credit card information, social security numbers, and bank details. It is important that appropriate security measures are taken in order to prevent the risk of a security breach. Anchor is the most cost-effective way to store financial data and doesn’t force you to dramatically change the way your department operates.

You can’t do business without collaborating on sensitive data. Anchor provides a secure collaboration for you, your clients, and your partners so each organization maintains absolute control over how, when, and under what circumstances their data is used.

How Anchor Supports Confidentiality

Anchor ensures that your clients’ confidential data and intellectual property are secure by allowing clients to anchor their data. This means that only users who follow the access rules of the protected data are given access. If access rules are not met, the data remains encrypted with a military-grade cipher. We provide clients a secure way to share their sensitive data when using consulting services. Anchor’s monitoring features lets clients audit who is accessing their data and how. Anchor works behind the scenes, remaining invisible to the user and not affecting the way they work. This means less effort at an affordable cost.


Zero-Trust Data Security​

The world is connected and distributed. Data lives in the cloud and on IoT devices. Employees are working remotely and bringing their own devices. Bad actors are already inside the network. Networks and computers are no longer in the circle of trust. A zero-trust architecture (ZTA) is now the only way to be secure.

Anchor changes the game by shifting the paradigm from complex infrastructure security to simple file security that actually eases the administrative burden while providing stronger protection of your sensitive data.

GBS - Datanchor Zero Trust


A Fortress for Every File

Zero-trust architectures define micro-perimeters around protected resources in order to reduce the incentives and minimize the impact of a network breach. Anchor takes micro-perimeters to the extreme and removes the network from the equation entirely. With Anchor, every single file has its own independent security perimeter and every single request to use it is verified.


Continuous Authorization & Instant Revocation

Zero-trust principles dictate that policies should be dynamic, based on as many sources of data as possible. Anchor brings zero-trust authorization to files. Patented heartbeat technology constantly verifies access rules in real-time based on a myriad of organizational and contextual data sources such Active Directory, Geo-IP, IP address, Wi-Fi network, and more. It’s extreme multi-factor authentication. When an access rule is broken on a file in use, Anchor instantly shuts it down. Trust is never assumed, even after a file is open.


Share Access, Keep Control​

Businesses share files to collaborate with others and create value. Too often, the recipients of that information misuse or abuse that data by leaving it unprotected, permanently retaining the information, or sharing it with unauthorized parties. Anchor is a lightweight solution that enforces zero-trust security at the file level, based on the user, their role, and the context in which they’re trying to access data. It continues to protect and work with files outside an organization’s network just as well as it works inside, whether they have been shared or stolen. Anchor facilitates remote work and collaboration across the internet while maintaining strong protection against unauthorized data access.


Stop the Bad Guys, Not the Business​

All over the world, businesses are increasingly under attack every day. In response to the ever-advancing threat, organizations create more layers of security and increase the burden on the employees. This results in employees finding ways to circumvent those controls. Remember when password complexity requirements caused employees to write down their passwords and hide them under their keyboards?

Anchor protection is transparent to the end users and requires no workflow changes to how you use your applications today. The only time an end user is aware of the protection is when they use data in a way they are not allowed, like from a home computer.
