Shift Devices builds hardware devices for securing and authenticating digital assets, or, in other words, physical keys for the digital world.
Ourselves, companies, and governments are putting more and more of our lives and work online. Much of this information must be accessed and used securely: banking, shopping and cryptocurrencies; logging in; email and communication; medical records and personal identities; company documents; and more.
The challenge lies in doing so safely and simply. In cryptography, strings of random numbers called 'private keys' are used for digital signatures. Similar to handwritten signatures, they prove to others the authenticity of a transaction. Therefore, keeping these keys safe is of great value.
We achieve this by storing private keys and critical security algorithms physically isolated inside an easy to use, plug-n-play, single-purpose microcontroller. The device can be as simple as using a key to open your front door. Yet it provides optimal security through advanced cryptography and by being physically isolated from online thieves or malware on computers and mobile phones.
Our first product, the BitBox, focuses on the cryptocurrency scene.
