Who We Are

SeaPort, Inc. is a group of dynamic professionals with decades of experience in diverse technical backgrounds. The group is hyper-focused on building game-changing technologies. SeaPort’s patented technologies aim to produce cost savings for businesses, governments and other organizations by making systems faster, more secure, and energy efficient.

Our Latest Technology

IPK Suite

The shortcomings of modern cybersecurity techniques have caused major issues for commerce, government and people. Current encryption methods are too predictable, easily compromised and add substantial overhead. SeaPort’s latest development, the patent-pending IPK Suite (Intelligent Private Key Suite) is a set of easily-implemented algorithms that make network and storage systems faster, more secure and energy efficient.

Independent test results from ABS, a leading global provider of classification and technical advisory services, show that the IPK Suite provides up to 9 times better throughput, 5 times less processing time (CPU load) and 1.5 times less latency.

IPK

Data In Motion
Improving The Standard

IPK is SeaPort’s industry standard-based encryption technique. It is a lightweight add-on to existing communications systems or networks. IPK links system control, feedback and status to encryption. It also allows users to change information or ciphers and private key content and length in real time.

IPK +

Data In Motion
Custom Encryption

Leveraging SeaPort’s industry-standard encryption technique, IPK Plus introduces the flexibility to add custom encryption techniques beyond industry standards (AES, Elliptical Curves, Blowfish and Cha Cha). Together, these techniques significantly strengthen encryption.

IPK + ZOE

Data In Motion
Zero Overhead Encode

IPK + ZOE (zero overhead encryption) adds SeaPort’s innovative custom encryption technique to the IPK technology.

IPK + ZOE Cloak

Data At Reset
Better Storage

IPK + ZOE Cloak adds custom ZOE encryption techniques to stored data. This dramatically reduces the need for memory, increases back-up speeds and doubles back-up capability.

Who It's For

Our technologies are perfectly designed to impact a range of diverse industries.

Tech

Data Centers, Cloud & Tech Companies

In addition to increased security, SeaPort’s IPK Suite allows companies to send and store data more efficiently. The IPK technology also enhances data storage and recovery solutions without adding significant overhead via power, bandwidth or latency issues.

Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity Companies

While many new technologies in the cybersecurity industry are reactive and focus on detection, SeaPort’s groundbreaking IPK Suite is preventative. This presents a unique competitive advantage for cybersecurity companies. It also provides a major advantage for users by lowering issues and costs associated with a cyberattack.

Military

Military

As the use of drones, tablets and other mobile technologies continue to increase in military operations, SeaPort’s IPK Suite is a must-have in providing defense and intelligence agencies with increased security, computer and battery performance.

Government

Governments, Municipalities and Universities

As city governments, universities and other municipalities continue to harness the power of data collection and analytics, SeaPort’s IPK Suite will help tremendously improve the security, efficiency and costs associated with transmitting and storing data.

Streaming

Video Streaming Companies

With 150 billion devices expected to be connected to the internet by 2025 with increasing resolution doubling the amount of streaming data, the IPK Suite is critical to the streaming industry. The IPK Suite increases performance and efficiency, which means less servers, power and infrastructure. This translates to millions in savings for streaming companies.
