Symbio Technologies Calls Stateless Computing the Antidote to WikiLeaks

NEW ROCHELLE, NY―Stateless computing can help ensure that events like WikiLeaks never reoccur. That is the position of Symbio Technologies, a leader in the development of stateless computing. The company maintains that the key to securing information is to make it physically impossible for people to download it. Then, they cannot remove it from a secure location and share it with others who should not see it.

"What makes stateless computing unique is that all data and applications remain on the server. Nothing is downloaded or saved to the desktop, not even IP addresses," said Gideon Romm, Symbio's CTO. "There are stateless computing solutions that can be used inside offices and outside them. In both cases, all of the data remains on the server. Nothing can be downloaded onto the desktop devices themselves or USB drives, removable hard disks or the DVDs used by those who provided WikiLeaks with its information," continued Romm. "We have ready-to-go, drop-in solutions that can help data custodians secure information even if they are using legacy technologies."

"We see the situation as analogous to the rash of robberies of bus drivers a number of years ago," noted Symbio's Director of Reseller Services, Lew Tischler. "Drivers were held at gunpoint and ordered to hand over the change in the coin boxes. Bus companies found the solution to this problem in a technology that prevented bus drivers from accessing the coin boxes. Now there are signs informing everyone that the drivers do not have access to the money. Robberies of bus drivers have plummeted because the robbers know that the drivers cannot access the money even if they want to."

"We must take the same steps to secure information. We recommend that Russell Travers, who has been chosen by President Obama to stop these leaks, the National Security Staff, the Departments of Defense and State, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, all of whom are looking for an antidote to events like WikiLeaks, consider adopting stateless technology. Ensuring that workers cannot remove information from the server even if they want to is a major step in that direction," concluded Tischler.
