Introducing Sphynx Database Security

Worldwide data theft losses topped $445 billion in 2013, and the problem isn't going away. Sphynx will cut those losses by 60-80%

The dirty secret of database security is that, in order to secure your data, you must encrypt it--but in order to manage your data, you've always needed to decrypt it.

Not anymore.

Sphynx is a patented (U.S. Patent No. 8,806,223) modular extension to standard or custom database packages that allows the five fundamental database operations (INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, SEARCH, and SORT) to be performed on encrypted data while it remains encrypted.


  • Will protect database performance. It introduces no significant performance hit, and may improve performance in some circumstances.
  • Will be licensed to database vendors, governments, and for legacy systems.
  • Can be implemented in a matter of a few weeks on any platform

Full technical details are available in the patent, which is published in PDF form at this link.

Add that all together, and you have a product that John Muir of the Security Innovation Network has called "The Holy Grail of database security."

Sphynx is the brainchild of D.N. “Lynx” Crowe, who has been designing and implementing profitable, bleeding-edge hardware and software solutions to complex problems in industrial, scientific, and commercial markets since 1965, for other companies. Sphynx is the first product for his own company, and he expects to use its profits to advance his other R&D efforts.

Licensing is now available.
