“After many years in the security industry witnessing organizations dealing with the exploitation and loss of confidential information to state sponsored actors, organized criminal enterprises and political hacktivists, I am incredibly impressed with Paranotek’s novel and frankly groundbreaking approach to encryption technology. Paranotek’s suite of solutions are far ahead of the curve in privacy and encryption technology. I originally discovered the company during my own research into messaging privacy solutions and met with the team based in Finland. I was amazed at the striking insight and progress that Lauri Tunnela and Johannes Maliranta achieved in applying quantum information theory to encryption methods. I am excited to be joining as CEO,” stated Mick Davis, new CEO of Paranotek. “Paranotek's multi-level security and data-centric encryption software suite is ideal for the long overdue security transformation necessary for consumer credit data services, personal health care data, and political campaign information and donor data, just to name a few.

Paranotek’s security solution will work with any existing database software and is completely scalable, making it easy to integrate and fulfill any size commercial or government need.”
