Calamu, a next-gen data protection software company, was presented a Top 50 Startups award at World Festival 2021, a global event featuring innovative companies across cloud computing, blockchain and cryptocurrency, artificial intelligence, and more. With more than a thousand startups competing for the award, winners were selected through a peer voting process, followed by assessment from an industry-renowned judging committee.


“We’re excited to receive this award, and for the opportunity to share Calamu’s innovative technology with the global community,” says Paul Lewis, CEO of Calamu. “All industries are being severely affected by ransomware, and Calamu offers a much needed solution to a significant worldwide problem.”

Calamu’s Data Harbor prevents hackers from compromising sensitive data even if they succeed in breaching a company’s perimeter defenses. This technology replaces single-storage targets with a secure and resilient multi-cloud environment. The Data Harbor’s patented engine intelligently fragments data into pieces, then scatters them across geographically dispersed storage locations. This eliminates the single-point-of-failure risk of traditional data storage by ensuring a complete file or data object does not exist in any single location, making nefarious access nearly impossible.

The Calamu Data Harbor can also detect suspicious anomalies and self-heal automatically from ransomware attempts to maliciously encrypt, manipulate, delete or remove data from the storage environment. Data remains fully available to authorized users and applications with no-ill effect or downtime.
