In today's rapidly evolving digital world, the need for robust and tailored security solutions is more crucial than ever. Recognizing this need, we are thrilled to announce a game-changing feature to emSigner: BYOK (Bring Your Own Keys). This feature allows you to maintain complete control over your keys, ensuring that they remain entirely in your hands.
What is BYOK?
BYOK, or Bring Your Own Keys, is a feature that permits users to import or generate their encryption keys in their cloud environment, rather than relying on the default keys provided by the service provider. This gives users an additional layer of control, ensuring that they are the sole custodians of their keys.
