ALTR’s mission is to restore digital trust by transforming the way that data is monitored, accessed, and securely stored.
ALTR was founded by a core team whose previous work was in algorithmic options trading technology. In that world, data was money. Security was incorporated in-line with low latency, and maintaining secure custody of data was vital.
It’s better to focus on what bad actors actually want: the data. By understanding how it flows, creating and enforcing policy to govern that flow, and protecting it in place when it is not flowing, threats to data can be reduced to nearly zero. Digital trust can be restored.
