SaltDNA: Enhanced security. Better business.



With several decades of collective work experience in enterprise security, telecoms, network optimization, and app development, a group of tech entrepreneurs were eager to come up with a reliable technology that would not only offer enhanced levels of security but also unparalleled features. They saw back in 2013 that the market was packed with well-funded companies offering consumer communication solutions. However, as the model for consumer apps is to monetise the personal information of the users – none of those solutions could fit within an enterprise’s operating framework. This led to the birth of SaltDNA, a multi-award-winning cybersecurity company that offers secure enterprise mobile communications solutions. Based in Belfast, Northern Ireland, SaltDNA is known for offering the highest-grade, rock-solid encryption and complete control to trusted organisations across the globe.

“Our mission is to offer peace of mind for organizations who value their privacy by giving them complete control and secure communications, to protect their trusted relationships and stay safe.”

Maximum security. Maximum peace of mind

SaltDNA became the first-ever company to come up with a solution for encrypted communications between mobile devices with full, centralized control for the enterprise. This was a major achievement for SaltDNA which earned it a lot of respect within the then emerging tech hub of Belfast and beyond. With research and innovation as its core, SaltDNA Technology has emerged to be different from others. “SaltDNA is the global leader in highly secure communications for organisations where privacy is key. When deployed and configured, our platform provides a bespoke secure communications solution that gives back complete control to our customers,” affirms Joe Boyle, CEO and Co-Founder of SaltDNA. To drive adoption within organisations SaltDNA’s high-security system provides users with the same familiar user experience as a consumer app. However, the key difference lies in how the customer’s administrators have full, centralized control of the system at all times. “Our mission is to offer peace of mind for organizations who value their privacy by giving them complete control and secure communications, to protect their trusted relationships and stay safe,” continued Joe.

What makes SaltDNA technology the most trusted one?

SaltDNA does not have a consumer offering and instead focuses only on enterprises and official organizations. The product provides highly secure voice & video calls, messaging, conference calling, broadcasting & image or file transfers for busy professionals. It currently acts as critical infrastructure to security services, military, legal, finance, energy, and practically every other enterprise sector. Through its products, SaltDNA not only offers elevated levels of security but also ease of use resulting in increased adoption and productivity. 

An organization can own its secure communications platform, by provisioning an on-premise deployment, with an option to have a full white-labeled version of the system if desired. SaltDNA offers many unique features restricting users from taking screenshots, securely downloading documents and images from internal systems or other users, and scheduling message and metadata clean-ups from their device. 

Developed to provide elevated security, SaltDNA’s product offers high-end open source encryption which includes:

  • Peer-to-peer messaging with off the record and ephemeral key exchange.

  • Bi-directional message burn.

  • Each text is securely transmitted using its own 256-bit AES cipher key.

  • Voice calls secured with multi-layered, ephemeral keys over DTLS.

  • Encryption at the transport layer using TLS v1.3 and 2048-bit RSA.

For maximum security, SaltDNA uses an encryption mixture using multiple encryption algorithms. At the transport layer, it specifically uses the Transport Layer Security (TLS) version 1.3. For keys, it deploys the 2048-bit RSA, which provides the highest level of security thereby balancing the computational requirements and power consumptions on mobile devices.

Cyber-attacks have caused massive financial and reputational impact on some eminent organizations and the threat of such attacks constantly remains. Customers understand that by choosing the SaltDNA Secure Communications Platform, they are protecting their communications with the market’s leading and most reliable technology.  When deployed beside existing systems it can act as a safe haven communications system when all other systems may have been compromised.

It was also recognised in the ‘Best Enterprise UC Solution’ category and won the “Supplier Innovation – Data Management & Security” award at Legal Innovation Awards 2020. “We are thrilled to have won such a sought-after award, coming up against the really tough competition. The team has continued to work extremely hard throughout the coronavirus pandemic by not letting it get in the way of  our continuous innovation and development of our platform. We are driven by the fact that our customers need us more than ever due to forced remote working as a result of lockdowns and travel restrictions,” adds Joe.

Beyond the pandemic

The current pandemic has been deeply impactful for many businesses and it has caused organisations to think differently about how they approach their cybersecurity strategies. SaltDNA has been ready to deploy its solution to organisations across the globe during the COVID-19 pandemic period. The year 2020 proved to be a breakout year for SaltDNA, achieving strong growth and a plan to repeat its success in 2021. SaltDNA intends to continue building its reputation with more success and a larger global footprint. “We have a market-leading platform, and we intend to push harder again in 2021.
