      Hello Tess, apologies for the long delay in replying to your message. I am interested in seeing some more documentation about your service. It is timely in that we have been working with SaltDNA https://www.saltdna.com/ and Kaymera https://www.kaymera.com/ over the last number of months. With SaltDNA (Belfast & Boston,MA) on a secure document transfer as a service solution, based on their award winning military grade encryption engine which has recently won several awards. With Kaymera (Tel Aviv) it is all about end point security. Let me know how you would like to proceed and thank you for contacting me. Regards, Graham.
