RevBits announces issuance of U.S. patent for unique product security architecture using zero-knowledge encryption
Provides Maximum Data Protection in Browsers and Dashboards.
For immediate release
Mineola, NY September 8, 2020 - RevBits Cybersecurity software provider today has announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued U.S. Patent No.US10579542B2 covering technology which provides the security of zero-knowledge encryption for data in transit and at rest, while providing the ease and efficiency of implementation of encryption within the user's browser.
"As part of our ongoing commitment to provide our customers with the most advanced cybersecurity software solutions to protect their most valuable assets, we are continuously investing to improve the internal security of our solutions," said David Schiffer, CEO. "As our PAM solution manages access for all privileged accounts in a company, it is extremely important to be well protected against attempts to intercept and potentially abuse its data. The technology covered in this new patent allows us to take this protection to a new level."
"Using a combination of different encryption and decryption algorithms and keys we make sure that any critical data which is exchanged between browsers and servers is fully protected at all times," said Mucteba Celik, CTO. "All data at transit is double encrypted and data at rest stays in an encrypted state at any time, hence the zero-knowledge encryption. As a result any hostile attempt to access data stored at the servers will fail."
RevBits provides cybersecurity software for privileged access management, endpoint protection, email security and deception technology. Implementation of this patented architecture in the dashboards of their solutions provides RevBits' customers with yet another important security feature that up to now was not available in the market.
Established in 2018, RevBits is an innovative cybersecurity company that is dedicated in providing their customers with superior protection based on expert knowledge. RevBits is headquartered on Long Island, NY, with offices in Mineola, NY, Princeton, NJ, Boston, MA and Antwerp, Belgium.

It’s a common misconception that the only threats to an enterprise’s security come from external actors. Whether intentional or not, 47% of organizational data breaches are the result of internal human error, such as a misplaced device or document. Moreover, some employees present an even larger risk than others. According to recent reports, younger employees are more likely to bypass security protocols that are viewed as an impediment to their productivity. When it comes to onboarding new employees, young or old, enterprises must have proper security awareness & anti-phishing training, in addition to a strong privileged access management solution, to guard against the different types of human error that could create security vulnerabilities.
Although email phishing has taken many forms throughout the years, the most common type of email scam is also the oldest. Since 2003, black-hat hackers have created domain names and web pages that look virtually identical to actual websites and have linked these copycat sites to vulnerable users via emails. It is increasingly difficult to tell the difference between a real web page and a fake one, especially for companies without sophisticated anti-phishing tools. For all companies, it's important to have the best anti-phishing solutions in place to ensure all data is protected and downtime is avoided.
Have you ever received an email that looks totally legitimate, links to a website that looks real, and asks for personal information? It is becoming harder and harder to know who and what can be trusted. Phishing is the practice of trying to get an unsuspecting email user to engage with an email in some way (opening, clicking, downloading an attachment, sending money, etc.).
