Cybersecurity Trailblazer Keyavi Data Unveils Major Product Enhancements That Empower Global Enterprises To Share And Manage Their Data With Employees And Third Parties Seamlessly And Securely On Any Device, Anywhere, At Any Time

For IT Teams, Effortless Centralized Controls for Authenticating and Securing User Access to Company Data
For All Users, Fast and Easy Data-Sharing with Maximum Security

Keyavi Data Corp., a multi-award-winning cybersecurity trailblazer whose revolutionary technology is stopping ransomware criminals in their tracks and reshaping the very nature of the security industry, today released an enhanced 2.0 product suite with new, single sign-on and account management capabilities so that enterprises operating in a Windows® environment can more easily integrate, secure and control internal and external access to their business data.

Keyavi’s self-protecting, intelligent and self-aware data security technology now seamlessly integrates with OpenIDConnect (OIDC), an industry standard that supports leading identity and access management systems, such as Microsoft’s® Azure Active Directory and OKTA’s identity and access management platform. As a result, enterprise customers of Keyavi’s game-changing technology are able to quickly and securely authenticate their employees’ identities and grant or change policy permissions for access to business data on the fly.


Keyavi’s OIDC enablement allows for single sign-on with the identity service provider of your choice. Remote and in-office employees can easily and securely share files with individual colleagues or groups of employees within their organization as well as send emails and share files with external third parties who aren’t licensed Keyavi users.

With the proper authorizations and applications, anyone outside an enterprise can also quickly and securely access Keyavi-secured documents with confidence, knowing that those data files are safe from cyber criminals or accidental loss, no matter where, when or how that data travels or is stored throughout the world.

As part of its 2.0 rollout, Keyavi also streamlined all product naming conventions to distinguish among the features and benefits of its desktop apps, mobile apps and web-based browser functions more easily.

“As ransomware attackers and other cyber criminals up their ante for hijacking sensitive documents with increasingly sophisticated attacks, enterprises need frictionless and intuitive tools for verifying, securing and managing user identities and access to their business data,” said Elliot Lewis, Keyavi’s co-founder and CEO. “Today, we are unlocking Keyavi’s category-creating technology as a more powerful business enabler. By seamlessly integrating enterprise systems with our highly secure data-level controls, C-suite leaders will grow their businesses faster by improving productivity and sleep better at night, knowing their data is protected.”

“These product enhancements and automated workflows help enterprises dynamically deploy and manage Keyavi’s technology at scale,” said Shai Guday, the company’s chief product officer. “Until now, every Keyavi user had to be manually entered into our system by a Keyavi administrator for secure data access, which clearly wasn’t scalable for mid-sized organizations, let alone the top Fortune companies we serve. By mapping our products to OIDC, corporate customers benefit from seamless integration with Keyavi, Azure Active Directory and OKTA. As a result, IT and security administrators will save considerable time and effort provisioning Keyavi’s value-added technology to thousands of employees and internal user groups.”

Tanner Johnson, principal analyst of data security and IoT cybersecurity at leading industry analyst firm Omdia, underscored the market significance of Keyavi’s technology.

“Keyavi has introduced a groundbreaking capability in the space of data protection that bestows intelligence onto information itself. By allowing organizations the ability to put granular controls in place on their own critical data, company information has the means with which to ultimately monitor itself. Keyavi’s disruptive solution helps clients re-establish the protective perimeters on crown jewel data that were lost as a result of the global transition to remote work due to the pandemic.”

What’s New & Improved

  • Enterprise User Access & Authentication: Now that Keyavi’s technology integrates OIDC, Azure Active Directory and OKTA, enterprise employees can quickly and easily log into Keyavi’s applications through their corporate account without needing a separate Keyavi username and password.
  • Enterprise-wide Sharing of Protected Files for Employees and Internal Groups: Administrators can now assign and securely manage file access and policy permissions for specific role-based user groups within their organization just as easily as they can for individual employees. Administrators who have different internal needs and functionalities also have the ability to manage multiple user profiles at the same time.
  • Enterprise Data-Sharing with External, Unlicensed Recipients: Enterprise users are now able to send emails and share Keyavi-protected files in read-only mode with anyone outside their organization who is not a Keyavi-licensed user. As one of several convenient options, recipients of an email attachment with an Intelligent Keyavi Data (.IKD) file extension can open and view the attachment by downloading and installing a free, lightweight version of Keyavi’s full desktop application called Keyavi Lite from the Microsoft store.
  • Enterprise Data Security Controls & Deep Forensic Insights: A streamlined dashboard provides a bird’s-eye view of every access to Keyavi-infused data, either at an individual level for general users or at the corporate level for administrators. More than 50 heuristics are being captured in near real-time to ensure data is only accessible under the right conditions and that they keep cyber criminals out.
  • Concise User Interface & Portal with Advanced Administrative Controls: With Keyavi’s integrated OIDC, Azure Active Directory and OKTA solutions, enterprise administrators can now save significant time and effort either authorizing new employees for secure data access or suspending access for former employees without having to provision or revoke user policies manually.
  • Improved Keyavi Web-Based Client: Some enterprise users, for a variety of reasons, may be unable to download and install Keyavi’s full desktop application. For them, Keyavi’s web-based client enables a licensed user to both protect and open .IKD files. This agentless approach encompasses the core functionality of the full Keyavi platform without the need for desktop installation.
  • Improved iOS and Android Mobile Apps: Keyavi upgraded its mobile apps so that users maintain complete control of their secured Keyavi data files on the go – whether protecting files or opening them on their mobile devices.
  • Intelligent Directory™ Automatically Applies Enterprise-Wide Policies and Keyavi Protections to Shared Files: Keyavi vastly improved the performance and speed at which enterprise users automatically apply organization-wide policies to new files as they add them to a shared file server. By configuring enterprise data access policies once, Intelligent Directory lets administrators seamlessly apply those policies to every new file dropped into file-share folders – a feature that removes any chance of user error administering enterprise-wide policy compliance or from having to manually configure policies and data-share protections for every Keyavi user.
  • Streamlined Product Names
    • Keyavi – A full-featured, user-friendly and intuitive Windows desktop solution plus mobile applications that give users easy, secure and complete control over their .IKD-protected files. Plugins for the Microsoft Office Suite – Outlook, Word, Excel and Powerpoint – seamlessly integrate Keyavi’s revolutionary technology directly into the Microsoft desktop ecosystem as well as with iOS and Android mobile apps that are available for free download from the Apple® and Microsoft stores.
    • Keyavi Web (previously “Keyavi Web App”) – Since not all users can download and install Keyavi’s technology onto their desktop, Keyavi offers a free, browser-based web client to open and view .IKD files. This functionality incorporates most of the features of Keyavi’s full-featured desktop application with one exception — users won’t be able to right-click on files to protect or decrypt them.
    • Keyavi Lite (previously “Keyavi Reader”) – a pared-down version of Keyavi’s full desktop application that lets internal and external users open protected .IKD files in read-only mode. This free Windows app is available for download from the Microsoft store.
    • Keyavi Viewer – a web browser version for users who can’t download the Lite version but who need its functionality.
    • Keyavi Portal – an administrative web portal for data owners to monitor and manage their protected .IKD files. It also provides comprehensive platform controls for user, policy and security administrators.
