About this event

19 year old Shane Curran, former winner of the BT Young Scientist of the year and former Forbes 30 under 30 is no stranger to startups and technology. Currently building his new venture, evervault.

evervault is building a data protection solution aimed at developers, by way of an API, which aims to bake data protection into the app from the start.

Backed by investors such as Sequoia, Kleiner Perkins, Frontline and more. Sequoia’s first seed investment in Ireland. evervault can be implemented into any app or piece of software that uses PII (personally identifiable identity), to help developers build encrypted “data cages” to handle the information from the moment it’s ingested, they want to bake privacy into the product. evervault makes a service more secure with regards to personal data in a way that doesn’t compromise the experience for the user, or the app/software company itself.

Shane Curran first devised the idea that became evervault two years ago, as the basis of what became his top-prize-winning submission for the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition, an annual competition in Ireland (his original description of the tech was this: “qCrypt: The quantum-secure, encrypted, data storage platform with multijurisdictional quorum sharding technology”).

evervault recently raised €3m from investors, including Sequoia and Frontline, to develop its cloud-based secure-processing system, which takes privacy away from compliance departments and turns it into product.
