Learn how Virtru’s data-centric, user-first protections empower manufacturers and supply chain partners to securely share IP and regulated technical data easily and securely, powering innovation and growth.
Launched in 2012, John Ackerly is the CEO and Co-Founder of Virtru and Will Ackerly is the CTO and Co-Founder of Virtru, a digital privacy company based in Washington D.C. Prior to founding Virtru in 2012, John was responsible for privacy and technology policy at the White House National Economic Council and was the Policy and Strategic Planning Director at the U.S. Department of Commerce. Prior to founding Virtru in 2012, Will spent eight years at the National Security Agency (NSA) where he specialized in cloud analytic and security architecture — specifically protecting the agency’s in-house data transfers. During his tenure at the NSA, Will invented the Trusted Data Format (TDF).
Virtru is privately funded with investments from Bessemer Venture Partners and other private investors. Bessemer partner David Cowan, co-founder of Verisign, serves on the company’s board of directors. Authentic8 CEO, Scott Petry, who founded the email security company Postini, is also a Virtru board member.
On August 22, 2016, Virtru announced that it has closed on $29 million in Series A funding.
At the core of Virtru-enabled applications is the open source Trusted Data Format (TDF), which allows fine-grained access control for all file types and attachments, such as emails, Office files, pdfs, photos, and videos. The TDF format, invented by Virtru co-founder Will Ackerly, wraps and protects content and communicates with Virtru-enabled key stores that maintain access privileges. When a Virtru-protected message is sent, content is encrypted and secured inside a TDF wrapper. When your receiver attempts to open it, the wrapper communicates with the Virtru server to verify that the receiver is eligible to see the information. While the TDF technology is applicable to a wide variety of data security applications, Virtru has focused first on email.
After a one-year beta period, Virtru released its flagship email privacy service in January 2015. The service provides simple email encryption directly within commonly used email services like Gmail and Microsoft Outlook.
"While there are some early indications that social distancing is working, the American acceptance of isolation — and the economic uncertainty attached to it — is wearing thin. Any positive signs will likely ignite anxious anticipation of going back to life as we knew it. But when we do open the economy back up, we must do so without trading in our values."
In his Op-Ed for Protocol, Virtru Co-Founder & CEO, John Ackerly, writes about what's needed to reopen the American economy without giving up our fundamental right to privacy. Get the full story: virtru.co/2RAdYdt...
