Our Mission

Balancing security and functionality

Security leaders need to know what is their organization's cyber risk, where their data is located, and how its being secured.  Employees need to have easy access to their data, a quick way to transfer that data, and freedom to use the systems they've already learned how to use.

In business, we need data to be secure without making our jobs more difficult. Phalanx provides the most seamless data security by implementing Zero Trust at the file level.  We aim to make data available to as many people as possible without sacrificing security.

Product Walkthrough

We were looking for a data security tool that encrypted all local files, especially as more offices go virtual. With Phalanx, the security follows each file and allows you to be compliant anywhere. Phalanx is very flexible and modular and provides the functionality we were looking for.
