MOSCOW, October 28. /TASS/. The Maxfield Capital fund, established with the participation of Russian billionaire Viktor Vekselberg’s companies, has acted as the main investor in a $5 million round of investments in US service nCrypted Cloud to protect data in the Internet storage facilities, the fund said in a statement Tuesday.
The storage facilities contain such files as Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, Box and others. Apart from Maxfield Capital, the deal involved business angels from Microsoft, Cisco, Reveal Imaging and Broadcom.
The nCrypted Cloud service was set up in 2012 by businessman Nicholas Stamos and Internet security expert Igor Odnovorov. The company patented its own technology to protect data for popular cloud storage facilities when they are used in corporate purposes.
The system ciphers data, tracks which of employees asks for access to them and stores history of actions. nCrypted Cloud works as an add-in to the existing cloud services. nCrypted Cloud’s system has more than 10 million ciphered files.
