Founded in January of 2015, GiantTrend sets out to provide file protection for solving rising information security issues for individuals, corporations and cloud service providers.
The company has developed a novel information security system for the global market called SecuOnCloud, which is based on its “data encryption-remapping” technology and “on-the-fly encryption” technology. According to Executive Vice General Manager at GiantTrend, Jackson Sun, the company has received patents on the data encryption-remapping technology in the United States, Taiwan, China, Japan, the United Kingdom, Germany and France.
The system provides protection for stored data on PCs, external hard discs, memory cards and USB flash drives. In addition, it can protect data transmitted via network such as videos, VoIP and instant messages.
In this system, after data has been encrypted, the data encryption-remapping technology allows the encrypted data to be saved to user-defined locations. In other words, the encrypted data must be retrieved from the correct locations in order to be decrypted.
Furthermore, when retrieving data, data is decrypted on-the-fly to prevent hacking. A schematic diagram of the technology is shown below.
Currently, the company is offering the system in the form of a USB dongle, which can also be used for identity verification. Users have to plug the USB dongle to a PC, a tablet, or a smartphone in order to access and manage data. Mobile app is available for Android OS 4.2 or above. The USB dongle is scheduled for release in mid-2015.
Sun says that in the near future, the company will also offer the system in the form of chips that can be embedded in various devices including smartphones, IP cameras and smart TVs.
GiantTrend is actively looking to integrate its system with other companies’ offerings and is now in talks with major brands. For example, the company is communicating with Samsung and D-Link for integration with Samsung KNOX and mydlink cameras, respectively.
