Calamu in April exited stealth with a seed round of funding worth $2.4 million and a plan to bring technology to let data automatically self-heal in the event of a data breach or ransomware attack. Dell Technologies' venture capital arm in June was revealed to be one of the see investors. The company’s Calamu Protect scalable automated date protection platform works by encrypting data, dividing it into fragments that themselves are useless, and then scattering those fragments to multiple storage locations. The Clinton, N.J.-based company claims that if one storage location is compromised, the data can be instantly restored to full resilience using redundant fragments.
