Secure your cloud data with SENGI

For those of you who believe that control over your private data should be fully in your own hands, Sengi IT has brought a solution to make your communication absolutely safe.

Hence, it makes your data inaccessible for any third party except you and the people you send them to. For the cloud provider and anyone else, your data is just a random collection of unreadable data chunks.
