Atakama – Ah-tah-kah-mah – after the Atacama Desert in Chile. Although the Atacama Desert is seemingly void of activity, upon closer inspection it is one of the most unique and beautiful places on Earth. In a similar vein, our encryption solution is unique among cyber and information security offerings. Beautiful in its simplicity, Atakama prevents unauthorized access to data and thereby transforms any environment into a digital desert for the bad guys.
