The Internet is NOT written in ink!

The Internet is written, erased and invisibility rewritten many times over, with little to no awareness by the provider or consumer of digital content. This creates a $500 billion gap!

$500B CyberSecurity Gap.png

PencilDATA’s mission is to narrow that gap by Securing the World’s Software - At the Source.

We complement the existing ‘Outside-in’ universe of Security & Compliance solutions designed to detect Software and Identity vulnerabilities, with an ‘Inside-out’ approach.

This ‘Security by Design’ and ‘Privacy by Design’ approach is more than DevSecOps. It shifts further left to SecDevOps via proactive software and services design, integrated at the Source Code level. By adding a ‘snippet of code’ to create Chains of Custody around any data and related process, apps and their back-end systems directly expose more security threats & compliance risks, earlier than ever before. This early detection (seconds vs months or years) buys precious time to contain cybercrime damage and respond / recover before significant damage is done.

Digital Solutions for Analog-era Problems

SecDevOps, 2 MegaTrends.png

Trust takes years to attain, minutes to lose. Customers, employees, partners and suppliers transact digitally in the 21st century. They communicate and automate digitally as well. Yet the business processes, apps, networks, identity, data management and security systems still used today were designed in the 20th century. Analog (paper/form-based) authenticity, provenance and lineage tools need their own digital transformation. PencilDATA solutions modernize the world’s digital security and compliance with essential levels of transparency missing in the era of analog solutions.
