Share and unshare your data at ease with StrongSalt’s blockchain technology designed specifically for low latency data platform.

How we keep your data secure

We only use modern and widespread cryptographic algorithms. As mathematics, quantum computers, and hardwares advance, our cryptographic modules stay updated to reflect the latest best practice for strong security.


Encrypted search and searchable encryption allow you to encrypt all your files and provides you the ability to search the content without decrypting it first.


StrongSalt’s decentralized encrypted search, storage, and sharing protocol enhances privacy and security while making the impossible possible.


Blockchain protects your data with an immutable audit trail and decentralization prevents the network from being shut down by the whim of any one company or government.


The latest advances in cryptography, decentralization, and private information retrieval preserve your privacy and anonymity.
