"Security and integrity of data remains one of the biggest concerns for our customers when deploying cloud solutions. Through our agreement with Vormetric, we provide our customers with an additional layer of security that helps them protect data stored in the cloud as well as enhance access control.”
“As organisations across the globe digitally transform their business, they have never faced a more significant threat from cyberattacks, with breaches not only potentially costing vast sums of money in fines, but also longer term damage to brand, reputation and market value. This is also causing huge ramifications to their trust and reputation. It is with this in mind that we have chosen to work with BT to provide robust data encryption solutions protecting customers around the world. With organisations increasingly deploying techniques such as cloud computing and big data to drive up customer service, it is critical that this proliferation of data is safeguarded from getting into the wrong hands. This is an exciting time for both parties and an opportunity to build a strong relationship in developing this global offering”.
