Deep-Secure Limited was formed in December 2009 by a management buy-in of the Specialist Products Division of Clearswift. The buy-in was backed by venture capital firm YFM. The YFM-managed Chandos Fund and British Smaller Companies VCTs 1 and 2 all backed the deal, through which software entrepreneur Richard Beaton became chairman of Deep-Secure with Miles Clee as CEO. The new company set up offices in Reading UK.
In September 2012, Robin King became CEO.
When Deep-Secure was formed it acquired two products from ClearSwift - Bastion and DeepSecure.
- Bastion is an EAL4 evaluated guard platform, originally targeted at the Sun Trusted Solaris 8 operating system. It was later ported to Solaris 10 with Trusted Extensions. The platform exploits the mandatory access control features of the Solaris operating system to provide separate compartments for the different components of the guard.
- DeepSecure is an EAL4 evaluated guard for SMTP and X.400 Email that runs on the Bastion platform.
Since the acquisition, the Bastion and DeepSecure products were merged and their scope widened to cover Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP and HTTPS) for web browsing and web services.
In addition, a Network Management Guard has been created to protect network and security management systems from the networks they monitor and control. This provides a full application level proxy for Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP).
Further developments include integrating the guards with third party data diodes to provide high assurance one-way connections that defend against the threat to the integrity of data and availability of services in the protected network.
Minerva is Deep-Secure's Next Generation Data Diode. Minerva is an enhanced diode that allows information to be checked before securely passed in or out of an isolated system whilst protecting against attack from the opposite direction.
