CynjaTech 
Consumer-level data privacy and security platform
Heather Dahl, CEO

Please describe your product/service and the security pain point you are trying to address. 
CynjaTech offers consumers privacy control in their digital life, and in doing so, solves the problem of data security. As regulators and consumer backlash drives the need for privacy, businesses and developers need a way to secure data AND offer consumers peace of mind about knowing how their data is being used. The combination of proprietary encryption methods, distributed microcloud storage and blockchain identity offers cost-effective data security. Our CynjaTrust platform provides a competitive advantage by offering privacy+security at a very low cost. Our advantage comes from solving both problems in one package.
 
How market-ready is your product/service? 
Families can already benefit from the security and privacy controls the CynjaTrust platform offers by downloading the CynjaSpace Internet safety app for kids. It is a single app that combines the safety, control and activity reports of a child's digital life that parents need with the fun and freedom that kids want when using the Web and chatting with friends. Children chat with approved contacts, learn responsible digital behavior, while parents can easily manage their child's online digital presence with convenient controls, alerts, time limits and activity monitors. By using the CynjaTrust platform, families own and control their child's data by preventing it from being tracked, sold or owned by third parties.

What is your biggest competitive differentiator? 
We offer a competitive advantage to any enterprise, developer, digital marketplace or institution by providing privacy controls, individual data ownership and regulatory compliance. CynjaTrust is a privacy and security platform. It gives consumers control of their data while still allowing businesses access. Our proprietary controls and always-on protections combine privacy and security, problems others are solving independently. Privacy and data ownership are the future of the digital experience.
