GBR14 are worthy winners of the TD-Info 2018 Excellence Award

Innovative GBR14  is the worthy winner of the Team Defence Information 2018 Excellence Award. It was presented to Peter Rogers (CEO) and Kully Johal (Chair & Co-founder) of GBR14 at the Defence Information 2018 Event on 19th April, where 8 finalists presented their entries in the Good Practice Market Place.

GBR14 have an innovative and patent-pending enabling technology that , “...manages individual database records, repository files, Internet of Things (IoT) and mobile devices, and access privileges using unique encryption keys to separately encrypt, and cryptographically separate, each piece of asset data.”

In doing so, “GBR14 largely eliminates the risk of mass data loss which means that data can be used, accessed and shared in ways that make data security a facilitator and not a limiting factor in the creation of value-add business processes.”

Visit the GBR14 website to learn more about the enabler capabilities they have developed and some of the use cases – including defence - to which they can be applied.
