IONBURST - Data-Out Protection Whitepaper with Foreword by Jeff Snyder, CEA Senior Advisor - Cyber

CEA Group is delighted to share Ionburst's newest Data-Out Whitepaper with Foreword written by Jeff Snyder, CEA's Senior Advisor - Cyber Security.

Ionburst is an elegant solution for a global problem. Today, data lives everywhere in an open, dynamic, and connected system; from our homes to the edge with every device, every network, and the Cloud.

Beyond the cooperation and competition integral to this dynamic and open system, there are adversaries that see every innovation that connects, accelerates, or simplifies how we interact as an opportunity to do harm.

Ionburst is an unprecedented level of data security, employing data as a proactive participant in its own protection with embedded resilience, sovereignty, and compliance allowing partners and clients to control data everywhere from anywhere.

However, if data itself is our central focus, it becomes both the perimeter and the endpoint, behaving as an active participant in its own defense. When adopting this model, security measures are embedded within the data itself, ensuring that it remains protected regardless of its location — whether within the corporate network, in the cloud, or in transit to a partner site.



Jeff Snyder is a CEA Senior Advisor and cybersecurity expert, boasting over twenty years of experience. His career is marked by significant Cyber contributions to both federal agencies and the private sector. He has been instrumental in the strategic acquisition and growth of over 20 companies in the cybersecurity industry.

Additionally, Jeff is a sought-after speaker regarding a spectrum of pressing topics, from the ever-changing cyber threat landscape to effective threat remediation and risk management strategies. His contributions to the field of cybersecurity are not only a reflection of his deep knowledge but also of his commitment to advancing security practices on a global scale.
