SNS FiRe Conference Names CertainSafe a 2015 FiReStarter Company

Strategic News Service (SNS) is proud to announce that CertainSafe, a DBA of Secure Cloud Systems LLC, has been selected as a 2015 FiReStarter company to be featured at the 13th annual Future in Review (FiRe) conference. Described by The Economist as “the best technology conference in the world,” FiRe features global thought leaders in technology and the global economy, including Elon Musk, Craig Venter, Michael Dell, Vint Cerf, Leroy Hood, Patti Grace Smith, Mark Hurd, Paul Jacobs, and many others. FiReStarters are selected based on the strength of their innovations and their potential to bring positive change to the world, and are showcased at an exclusive investor reception at the FiRe conference, in panels throughout the event, and with ongoing relationships introduced and supported by SNS.

SCSlogoCertainSafe’s core technology was initially deployed in 2010 for use by a Fortune 25 company and continues to be used today. CertainSafe offers a suite of core services to facilitate any entity’s data security needs. It offers protection for documents, payment processing data, and pictures, including MRI as well as X-ray files. Its services also include unparalleled security for any other type of data requiring protection in a certified and compliant manner. Its Security-as-a-Service solutions use advanced MicroTokenization® combined with its proprietary MicroEncryption® to protect personal, corporate, private, and all other forms of sensitive information, and its hybrid cybersecurity platform supports and simplifies the capability to analyze, share, and distribute mission-critical information seamlessly across multiple platforms.

It is a privilege to be selected to participate in the upcoming Future in Review conference,” said John Nachef, CEO of CertainSafe. “Very few venues can boast such an impressive list of influencers, and to be included with these global thought leaders is humbling. It also validates that our philosophy of rethinking how data needs to be secured is on the forefront of the war against cybercriminals.

Cybersecurity has been focused on the periphery for quite some time,” said Rep. Pete Hoekstra, former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and a CertainSafe board advisor. “The weakness to that approach is that once the perimeter is penetrated, the data is there for the taking, as we’ve seen time and time again in recent news stories. CertainSafe and its MicroEncryption® approach is the best way to minimize the risk of data breaches.

MicroEncryption® does what was once considered impossible: the breaking down of large data files into individual bytes, and encrypting through tokenization each of those bytes,” said Richard Marshall, former director of Global Cybersecurity Management for the US Department of Homeland Security and a CertainSafe board advisor. “Those tokens are then scattered on secured, certified servers, making data breaches mathematically improbable. The kicker is that this is all done at the speed of business.” For more information, please visit

Securing the cloud has been the elephant in the room for virtually all e-commerce and file-sharing applications. The CertainSafe approach to cloud security may be the most brilliant and effective that I’ve seen to date, in an area that is critical if Net-based commerce, applications, and transactions are to go forward. We are delighted to have CertainSafe / SCS as a FiReStarter company for FiRe 2015,” said Mark Anderson, FiRe chair and CEO of the Strategic News Service.
