Draw a perimeter around any point on Earth and create a digital fence to protect your data. Our Geofencing feature allows you to lock your data to a physical location to add an additional layer of security. Once you lock your sensitive data to a location on the map, Cocoon Data will not allow access to that data outside of the physical boundaries you set. GPS and cellular triangulation make location tracking relatively simple, but is not required with our approach. Network infrastructure of the internet connection of a user is all we need to determine the location and protect your data.
