JumpWire makes it easy to enforce secure data practices across applications and APIs, without having to change any code. By securing data as it enters an environment, JumpWire prevents sensitive data from being inadvertently exposed, and keeps companies compliant with data handling practices of SOC/PCI/or HIPAA programs.
You can use JumpWire to apply data security to specific properties in your data as it moves across the network. For example, JumpWire can encrypt only the JSON properties that correspond to PII as part of an HTTP POST. JumpWire automatically catalogs schemas to understand the shape of data payloads, then uses policies to label, classify and transform fields.
JumpWire embodies a philosophy of “defense-in-depth” and applies it to data. We invert typical perimeter-based security approaches on their head, by securing data as it enters or leaves an environment, and swapping the original data with a secured form. This ensures that, regardless of where data travels within an environment, it remains secure from improper handling or access.
Without JumpWire, companies are left trying to protect super sensitive data with access controls alone. While least-privilege access to systems is complementary to the security that JumpWire provides, it fails to add protection when data is moved into other systems like data warehouses, stored in backups, logged by applications, or exported between environments.
How it works
JumpWire installs inside our your cloud environment, which we refer to as “on premise”. In this setup, no data leaves your private network, and there are no critical dependencies on a SaaS product being available.
JumpWire adapts to existing infrastructure architecture, with the flexibility to sit atop a variety of network or application boundaries. There are two boundaries where JumpWire is typically deployed - as an API Gateway or as a Database Proxy
The heart of JumpWire is a powerful integration platform that manages connections to and moves data between APIs and databases. This custom-built platform provides efficient work distribution across a cluster of nodes and automated horizontal scalability for handling increasing load. JumpWire integrations can programmatically describe data schemas in other systems, streamlining the ability to label data fields and match labels to handling policies.
