Product/Service Highlights: Fortanix believes that it's time to de-couple security from infrastructure. The company's runtime encryption engine protects data at rest, in motion, or in use. To do this, Fortnix runs applications inside protected envelopes, away from the organization infrastructure. The envelope travels with the application, protecting it regardless of where the application is executing.
