Automated, enterprise-wide data protection

PKWARE’s data security platform monitors and protects sensitive information in files on endpoints, servers, and beyond. With PKWARE, you can protect each type of data the right way, and enforce your organization’s security policies in real time.

PKWARE detects sensitive data as files are created and modified, and takes automated action based on company policy.

  • Data is protected from the moment of creation, and stays protected as it's copied and shared
  • Data security rules and workflows can be configured to meet each organization's unique requirements
  • Administrators gain visibility into file contents and user actions
  • End users can do their jobs without disruption and without putting data at risk

Take control of sensitive data

PKWARE provides capabilities no other product can match, allowing each organization to create a tailored data protection solution.

Administrators use the PKWARE Enterprise Manager to define data security policies and deploy PKWARE agents on endpoints and servers. Policies can specify different forms of remediation based on file format, file contents, file location, and user profiles.

PKWARE agents on laptops, desktops, servers, and other IT assets enforce the organization’s security policies as files are created and modified. When PKWARE detects sensitive data in a file, it automatically applies the correct form of remediation (including classification, encryption, redaction, quarantine, or deletion) without the need for user intervention.

Protection without disruption

PKWARE's approach to data security is focused on closing security gaps and streamlining previously challenging operations. Our solutions are designed to be incorporated into your existing business processes, without the need for new infrastructure and without breaking user workflows.

Rule-Based Remediation

Data-centric workflow

PKWARE's automated, data-centric security workflow provides an ideal framework for managing and securing unstructured data—data stored in files, rather than in a database.

Unlike solutions that apply a single action to an entire device or network, regardless of file contents, PKWARE starts with the data, and lets you apply the proper form of remediation for each file.

Persistent Protection

Persistent protection

PKWARE protects sensitive information with strong encryption that remains with data at rest, in use, and in transit. Persistent encryption ensures that only authorized users can access data, even in the event that the data is lost or stolen.

PKWARE lets you lock down your data and eliminate the negative consequences of a data breach.


Cross-platform operability

PKWARE is the only data security solution that secures data on every enterprise computing platform. Encrypted files can be shared by authorized users on different systems, while remaining inaccessible to everyone else.

From mainframes to mobile devices, PKWARE is flexible enough to fit into any organization’s IT infrastructure.

Centralized Control

Full visibility

PKWARE’s reporting suite delivers detailed, easy-to-use intelligence on encryption and decryption activity across the organization.

Our industry-best Data Security Intelligence tool allows administrators to see which files have been protected, where the data is stored, and which internal or external users have been granted access to sensitive information. PKWARE's reporting features provide exceptional ease of use, and generate high-quality reports without the need for a third-party tool.

Customer Success

Flexible implementation

PKWARE supports a variety of deployment options, enabling organizations to implement their data protection solutions without unnecessary changes to infrastructure or workflows.

PKWARE's administration console is available as a virtual or hardware appliance, and the Smartcrypt software development kit can be used to add persistent encryption capabilities into existing applications with only a few new lines of code. No matter how complex the implementation, PKWARE's professional services team is there to make the process as smooth and efficient as possible.
