CipherStash ProxyRead the getting started guide 

Because data protection is
a team sport.

At CipherStash we're taking a different approach to data security.

Optimism not FUD

We focus on building better systems and tools to help you make informed decisions about your data without the fear, uncertainty and doubt.

Open technology

We believe in being open and transparent about our technology, how we build it and how it works.

For everyone

Data security isn't just for the CISO. We believe engineers, SREs and data scientists should be able to protect their data without needing a PhD in cryptography.
