SpaceBelt is envisioned as an extension of an organization’s enterprise network that provides dynamic network and cloud data storage services between any locations on Earth. To do this, SpaceBelt taps into a network of eight satellites in low earth orbit (LEO). And SpaceBelt provides strong data security whether at rest or in motion by providing global isolation of an organization’s highly sensitive data assets from the data breach risk of terrestrial networks.

Here is a video of how it works:
