eperi in Research – Post Quantum Cryptography

In research, eperi works together with leading cryptographers working at Telekom and the Technical University (TU) Darmstadt. Together, in the field of postquantum cryptography at TU Darmstadt, encryption algorithms have been developed that are safe even from powerful quantum computers. These future-proof algorithms have already been integrated into the eperi Gateway as the first commercial solution worldwide.

eperi holds several patents of its innovative technology. The basis of the solution was jointly developed together with the Federal Office for Security in Information Technology and the Open Source community. Of course, eperi continues to operate in these areas: the encryption of the MariaDB database has been, as an example, developed by eperi.

eperi Focuses on its Own Products – Cloud Data Protection Solutions

eperi GmbH was founded in 2003 under a different name (BeSeQure and – later on – Corisecio) and initially supported clients with consulting projects and individual developments in the IT security sector. Then the open source security framework secRT (Security RunTime) was created, which forms the basis for the eperi Gateway. This steadily evolving software continues to be the platform for all eperi Cloud Data Protection solutions today. It was developed in close cooperation with and audited by the Federal Office for Security in Information Technology (BSI).

In 2014, eperi had already established a considerable range of solutions for securing databases, cloud applications and file storage. That is why we switched from a consulting firm to a product company focused exclusively on developing cloud data protection solutions.

Today, eperi GmbH offers Cloud Data Protection solutions for Office 365, Salesforce, ServiceNow, Azure, AWS, web applications and databases. eperi solutions help ensure that internal and external privacy and compliance requirements are enforced internally and centrally and that customers can retain sole control over all their privacy processes.
