Edge Data security has historically been left to large organizations which act as trusted custodians of valuable information.This model of security has created large “honey pots” of data that make these organizations very attractive targets for hackers and attackers. By exploiting just one vulnerability, malicious actors can gain access to massive amounts of valuable data.
Due to the many failures of trusted custodians, the explosion of sensitive data, and the advent of blockchain technology, data security must happen at the edges of networks. We are ready to meet this challenge head on. Once widely deployed, Edge Security platform will make large scale data breaches a relic of the past and will help propel everyone safely and easily into the emerging networks of the future.
Secure, Private, and Easy to Use
Cutting edge security, user privacy, and ease of use are at the foundation of everything we build. The Edge Wallet combines these features into one user friendly platform for beginners and experts alike.
The Genealogy of Edge
Edge first product, a bitcoin wallet and business directory, was launched in the winter of 2014, under the company name of “AirBitz” and has been securing millions of dollars worth of bitcoin ever since.
Like many others, Airbitz was inspired by the bitcoin revolution and set out from day one to build tools that kept bitcoin users safe and in control.
The Airbitz Bitcoin Wallet was the first application of a security model we coined as “Edge Security”. By the end of 2015, we had successfully packaged up the tools that make the Airbitz Wallet awesome into a software development kit (SDK) that developers could use for their own applications. Our “Edge Security” SDK has since been integrated into top-tier blockchain projects such as Augur, Wings, and OpenLedger.
Airbitz quickly advanced from a bitcoin wallet in 2014 to a paradigm shifting data security solution and multi-currency wallet in late 2017. Given our company’s evolution and coining of the term, “Edge Security”, we thought it would be best to highlight this focus as the core of our brand. We look forward to the next stage of our company as Edge and invite you to join us on this innovative journey.
