Always Protected File -- our promise

The Mission

APF stands for “Always Protected File“,  a promise that started with a challenge: keep data protected when all other measures has failed.

Unstructured Data Shield and Cyber Privacy Guard delivered that promise.

With decades of experiences in information security and architecture, we have created the right product for this mission: APF Unstructured Data Shield for enterprise and Cyber Privacy Guard for consumer. Both product revolutionize the way the files are being protected and shared. With either solution, owner can now protect the content of the files anywhere at anytime against any form of attach, while enforce the access control so only the right audiences can access the content.
