The CipherStash Changelog

CipherStash now publicly available — for free!

April 12, 2022

launch

After 18-months of hard work, you can now sign-up to the CipherStash free tier for developers.

There's an old saying in startup circles: "If you're not embarrassed by your first release, then you released too late."

While we love the sentiment — think scrappy and move fast — this approach doesn't work well for security and infrastructure products that run mission critical apps. These product may have some rough edges at launch, but they must be fundamentally sound.

This is why we've taken our time getting CipherStash right.

Start securing your sensitive information today for free

If you're a developer working with sensitive data like Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Protected Health Information (PHI) or financial information like transaction data, you can protect your data using CipherStash in as little as 30 minutes.

Using Next.js and Prisma? Check out our post on building CipherStash into your existing application.

We've built the Stash.js SDK for TypeScript and JavaScript, to make securing sensitive data in your existing Node.js applications simple and easy.

As developers, making an awesome developer experience is incredibly important to us. We have heavily invested in documentation and a CLI to make this possible.

We've also created a forum where you can ask questions, provide feedback, and raise any issues you encounter.

Free usage up to 2,500 records

CipherStash is completely free for up to 2,500 records. With this you can start experimenting how to secure your sensitive data with CipherStash.

If you need to store more data, or are ready to start planning a move to production, please get in touch!
