COMMUNICASIA, SINGAPORE--This year, show organizers created a Discovery Lounge where a number of Asian technology startups and small and midsize businesses (SMBs) showcased their products and connect with potential customers and partners, alongside established big players including Panasonic and Huawei. We feature the technologies from some of them here:
Gatekeeper, from Singapore-based startup Clault, allows users to store and share confidential documents online in a way that is "as easy to use as Dropbox but with enterprise-grade security" and at lower cost, said Marcus Tan, its co-founder and director.
Tan and co-founder Li Qiming were previously from A*Star (Agency for Science, Technology and Research), where the former was a business investment manager and Li an IT security researcher. A portmanteau of "cloud" and "vault", Clault was formed in June 2011.
Focused on enterprise users, Clault will first target Gatekeeper at merger and acquisition (M&A) teams, since "there're always security concerns in M&A activities", Tan said, especially with the shift from physical meeting rooms to virtual ones when accessing confidential documents.
The cloud-based software running on Windows 7 is set for release this July. Also in the pipeline are a browser version of the software, one for Mackintosh OS, as well as mobile versions that include iOS and Android, he added.
