1. THE BEGINNING

This innovation initially came to life when…

When the Dekko founders were inspired to create a truly secure messaging platform. They were acutely aware that sharing information like passwords via email and chat was a potential recipe for disaster and wanted to be able to share information with complete transparency and control over who could read the data and information. This was a perfect opportunity to take real secure communication to the business world.

2. WHAT & HOW

The purpose of this innovation is to…

…provide companies with a trusted and easy to use secure cloud based communication tool. Dekko has 3 core products, DekkoVAULT, DekkoMAIL and DekkoCHAT. These are essential for businesses to be able to communicate online securely and protect their customers data.

It does this by…

…by using end-to-end encryption and engaging levels of control over your communication ensuring that only the intended recipient of a file or message will receive it. The keys are never held on the server so only the sender and receiver can ever read the data. This protects against man in the middle attacks and eliminates spam and phishing.

3. PURPOSE & BENEFITS

This innovation improves on what came before because…

Other file sharing services described as typically require encrypting files using a password that needs to be shared with recipients over non-secure channels such as email or SMS. Links to files also present significant vulnerabilities, as they are usually shared in the same fashion. Solutions that approach Dekko’s security are not business-ready, and Dekko’s design simplifies secure file sharing.

Its various benefits to the customer/end-user include…

Complete control and transparency around who can see the information shared. A Dekko user has confidence that the data is not subject to a MITM attack. Data sovereignty and a full audit trail makes Dekko a complete business solution.

4. COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

In the past, this problem was solved by…

Well nothing really. Traditional email, by design is a great medium for sharing information in a timely manner with others but it is the equivalent to putting the message you are sending on a giant billboard. Existing file sharing applications pose similar problems for companies as they often use unsecured platforms and networks to move the information.

Products like Dropbox Box,Tresorit and Mega but these products have some features of the Dekko solution but not all together on 1 platform. It is the combination of these that makes DekkoVAULT, in particular, a very compelling business ready solution.

5. TARGET MARKET

It is made for…

Any company or business that cares about the environment in which they share, store or communicate sensitive information. Companies are now mandated and responsible for protecting their customers data and significant fines for non-compliance makes Dekko a compelling offering. In addition, data sovereignty is an increasing issue for global companies and Dekko allows companies to choose the location where their data is stored.

It is available for sale through…

The Dekko website and selected partners.

Our marketing strategy is to…

Grow our direct sales model in conjunction with partners and resellers. Dekko is a global product so we spent some time in the US earlier this year mapping out a US market approach. With GDPR, Europe is also a captive market for Dekko and over the next 12-18 months we will build a presence in both of these markets.
