“We spent an enormous amount of time focusing on the issue of cybersecurity and the associated costs of cyber-attacks on the US and European economies. We are talking about many billions of dollars each year for each sector,” says Jerry Kaner, CEO of Ciphertex.

Organizations globally have been spending at least $150 billion in cybersecurity since 2021, a cost increase of 12.4 percent annually. Ciphertex is stepping up to address these issues.

“Ciphertex has been our go-to company for encrypted storage for nearly two decades. Jerry Kaner and the Ciphertex team were able to get us the equipment needed in a very short amount of time,” says Joseph Greenfield, Ph.D., VP and Chief Forensic Examiner of Maryman.
