SaltyCloud delivers affordable and proven data security solutions at scale to large, distributed and regulated entities.
We aspire to be the leading information security company for Higher Education, Government State and Local Agencies as well as other Highly Distributed and Regulated Environments.
SaltyCloud is a Public Benefit Corporation (PBC):
In addition to our dedication to proven security solutions, at SaltyCloud we want to make a measurable impact on global poverty. Around the world, poverty has a direct effect on people’s basic needs such as food, water, clothing and shelter and puts them and their families at risk of disease and human abuses such as exploitation and trafficking.
We Believe that a business solution to poverty can make a difference. The scope and scale of global poverty is beyond what any individuals, charities or governments can address alone. While government and charity-based aid require ongoing funding and contributions to remain sustainable, they struggle to keep up with the growing problem of poverty. A corporate, profit-based model allows a long-term, sustainable framework to grow at the speed and magnitude required to make a global impact on poverty.
We recognize that profit-based models have caused some organizations to seek profit at all costs, resulting in worker exploitation, deforestation and environmental pollution.
Our Public Benefit Corporation (PBC) is a for profit organization with a dual mandate. Our governing documents hold SaltyCloud accountable to deliver benefit to the general public in addition to shareholder profit. The Public Benefit Corporation provides a self-sufficient and scalable model to make a significant impact on world poverty. It is the ideal construct to create shared value, social value for public benefits as well as economic value for shareholders.
