About BOHH Labs

Redefining how security works

We are a world-class technology team with a distinctive track record in enterprise software, enterprise search, data security, financial services transactions and customer services solutions, dedicated to revolutionizing how security is adopted, and more importantly, how security works.

Our Technology

BOHH Labs is redefining how security works with a patent validated, multifaceted security solution that is deployed dynamically within the enterprise to immunize networks from brute force attacks, man-in-the-middle hacks, and quantum decryption without adversely impacting the workflow. Using a single infrastructure agnostic device that sits on top of your current backend system, our solution is designed to automatically react to internal and external threats in real-time, ensuring all incoming and outgoing messages are transacted securely. We do this by breaking all network connections and encrypting each data packet received using a temporal dynamic transient key, thus invalidating the data to intercepting parties and those with unauthorized access in real-time.
