FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: KAPALYA's innovative mobile APP for iOS and Android is based on industry standards and meets all regulatory and compliance requirements such as HIPAA, PCI, PII, CJIS, FTI, SOX, NIST 800-53, FIPS 140-2. It provides a better user experience by enabling access based on a user defined PIN and biometrics. Data on the mobile device, in-transit across public wi-fi or carrier networks and cloud servers is fully secure. However, the encryption keys for data stored on Cloud servers resides ONLY with the data owner and NOT by cloud systems administrators or "root" users. The APP performs identity, authenticity and device status checks prior to staring up and will terminate immediately if mobile device is either "rooted" or "jailbroken" Using this system will make life easier for enterprise users, Government workers that need to comply with industry regulations, health care professionals, people dealing with PII data, financial services personnel and the every day user that wants to ensure secrecy and privacy of their data stored on cloud servers and on mobile devices. It provides a better user experience with greater security and is more efficient than navigating through multiple technologies and using multiple credentials.
