What is Searchable Encryption?

Traditional encryption solutions leave data exposed at critical points in its lifecycle. Paperclip SAFE ensures continuous encryption across every data state, including in-use. Whereas traditional solutions decrypt data to support searchability, Paperclip SAFE enables search without ever decrypting or exposing it to threats.

“The need to protect data confidentiality and maintain data utility is a top concern for data analytics and privacy teams working with large amounts of data. The ability to encrypt data, and still process it securely is considered the holy grail of data protection.

“The aftermath of digital transformation and rise of GenAI have shown organizations the value provided by their data,” said Jennifer Glenn, Research Director for Security and Trust at IDC. “For this reason, securing data without hindering its use has become incredibly important. Technologies like searchable encryption are rapidly becoming a staple for organizations to keep data usable, while still ensuring its integrity and security.”

“With searchable encryption, data is encrypted before it goes into the data store. Encrypted data can be searched without being decrypted, which has a performance advantage over traditional encrypt and decrypt technology.”
