NetFay releases a Peer-to-Peer Encrypted Private Data Platform, a SaaS and VSaaS solution, aimed to overcome the challenges of working remotely amid the COVID-19 pandemic. NetFay’s technology allows a safer experience of file-sharing and storing in public servers that risk exposing company private data.
Taiwan Ministry of Science and Technology – Science Park has approved the entry of NetFay in November 2021 which highlighted NetFay’s technological development in providing online file access and group sharing services for cross-platform devices such as remote PCs, NBs, and mobile phones. With the peer-to-peer data encryption, the technology also stands out in terms of ensuring privacy and confidentiality.
Addressing data privacy risks with the peer-to-peer encrypted platform
The Peer-to-Peer Encrypted Private Data Platform provides remote office service access to data collaboration and group sharing. People do not need to upload private data to the public cloud, allowing companies cost-saving as it does not require monthly fees to extend more storage space.
The platform also offers uncomplicated IT settings that will ease people to access private data at home, in the office, or wherever they work with their notebook, PC, or smartphone. The SaaS and VSaaS subscription models on the platform allow remote workers to access private data located on home or office internal networks and ensure the confidentiality and security of the connection that has become an important issue.
In a bid to maintain data safety, an enterprise may set up a VPN, but most require complex settings by professional IT personnel that is impractical for remote working. Providing simple access, the platform enables employees to work remotely while allowing them to collaborate with multiple people by group authorization mechanism. Moreover, the platform is not only connected to storage but also can connect various streaming IoTs devices, like IP cameras or displays for more applications.
“It has the ease of use similar to that of a public cloud. At the same time, it retains the advantages of peer-to-peer encrypted communication to ensure personal data privacy. It can also build an IoT system for live streaming monitoring and multimedia resources,” said Kuei-Fu Hsu, Founder, and CEO of NetFay.
The Platform is designed to transmit static data, streaming video, and audio data in real-time anytime and anywhere. It also enables AIoT edge computing where user can use a single sign-on account to use all services on the platform in real-time, including watch live view streaming data from network camera or display directly, with surveillance service and AI image process analysis applications.
To ensure data safety, private data can only be transmitted between edge devices directly and does not pass through any cloud server. This will allow users to access it without uploading and downloading private data from cloud servers between sender and receiver.
