KeepYouSafe.com Launches Online Safe Deposit Box; Grabs Angel Funding
Military-Grade Encryption Service Keeps Important Financial and Personal Documents Safe, Secure, and Private
New York, NY – January 22, 2007 – KeepYouSafe.com (www.keepyousafe.com), a Web-based personal information security company, today launched an Online Safe Deposit Boxsm service to store and protect consumers’ vital documents and information – financial records, medical records, wills, insurance policies. In addition, KeepYouSafe.com announced it has raised an initial round of angel funding from private investors to bolster its marketing and sales efforts.
With KeepYouSafe.com, launched by two certified information security professionals with decades of experience in keeping critical data safe and secure, consumers can securely store their most important records online and can access those stored records from anywhere, at any time, via the Internet.
“Flood, fires, disasters, happen. Wallets are stolen or lost, houses are robbed. One of the keys to a more rapid recovery is being able to access important documents such as insurance policies, and financial information. Most consumers don’t have that vital information safely and securely stored, readily at-hand in the event of such an emergency,” said Eric Wolbrom, COO and co-founder of KeepYouSafe.com. “With KeepYouSafe.com, we’ve worked hard to offer consumers an easy-to-use, safe, and secure Online Safe Deposit Box.”
To provide a digital Online Safe Deposit Box, KeepYouSafe.com designed and built its service from the ground up with security in mind. Documents stored via KeepYouSafe.com are encrypted via military-grade encryption (256-bit AES) – one of the highest levels of encryption available. It would take 149 trillion years to crack a 128-bit encryption key, according to recent studies, so you can only imagine how long it would take to crack a 256-bit key.
To maintain the highest standards of security for the important documents stored on KeepYouSafe.com, the company does not retain users’ passwords on its servers. Unlike many online sites’ use of passwords, where consumers can easily request a new password, the KeepYouSafe.com password is the one online password that a consumer will need to remember.
Whenever a user saves a file or record via KeepYouSafe.com, the data is automatically encrypted and stored in four geographically distant locations throughout the world. KeepYouSafe.com’s redundant storage system is another layer of safety and security to protect consumers’ vital documents and information.
“Traditionally, some people have stored documents in a physical safe deposit box. With consumers living and working digitally, we wanted to create an Online Safe Deposit Box that offers consumers even stronger protection for their important documents, with the ease of accessing that information online in the case of an emergency,” Wolbrom said.
KeepYouSafe.com provides Online Safe Deposit BoxesSM to families and individuals who wish to securely store important records and other information and be able to access those stored records from anywhere, at any time, via the internet.
The personal information stored in an Online Safe Deposit Box is available to the box’s owners only, unless individual box owners choose to grant access to family members and trusted friends. Each box’s contents are protected by the same strong encryption and other security technologies used by the U.S. military to secure top secret data.
The KeepYouSafe Online Safe Deposit Box service is provided by Information Survival, LLC. The service was designed and developed by a team of certified security professionals with decades of deep experience in keeping critical data safe and secure.
Information Survival LLC is a privately held security company based in New York.
