Protegrity, a leading provider of data-centric enterprise data security solutions, is expanding its global footprint in the Asia Pacific region with the opening of a sales office in Singapore.
Protegrity’s current office locations extend from its corporate headquarters in Stamford, Conn., U.S.A. to the San Francisco Bay Area, the United Kingdom, Sweden, and India with many other locations throughout Europe. Establishing a presence in Asia Pacific is a recognition of the interest the company has experienced in the region for the Protegrity Data Security Platform, which offers centrally-controlled data discovery, security and user activity logging for applications, databases, Big Data warehouses, mainframes, and the cloud. These solutions are available through Protegrity Prime, the industry's first all-in subscription solution that bundles the company’s software, support and consulting services into flexible tiers based on how much sensitive data is protected.
“Many of the world’s largest financial services firms, retailers, healthcare providers and companies in other industries rely on Protegrity to identify, locate and protect sensitive data enterprise wide, manage risk, achieve compliance, enable business analytics and confidently adopt new platforms,” said Protegrity CEO Suni Munshani. “We are excited about the opportunity Asia Pacific presents to Protegrity and look forward to working with the region’s leading organizations to address their data protection needs.”
Whether the data is in the cloud, in a database, or in a mobile device, Protegrity’s data-centric security keeps the data safe. Silo-based security, like disk or database encryption, CASB or specific analytical, PCI, PII and PHI solutions only protect the data in that context. Once the data moves out of the silo or moves to another silo, organizations run the risk of exposure. Protegrity secures the data itself utilizing innovative tokenization, encryption, format preserving encryption (FPE) and masking to protect data across all silos, wherever it goes, regardless of the silo, location, or vendor.
“Protegrity offers a breadth and depth of data protection that can’t be matched,” said Simon Brender, Protegrity’s new General Manager for the Asia Pacific region. “Asia Pacific is leading the charge on digital disruption and innovation but is equally having to contend with the increases seen last year in malicious data breaches across the region. Our technology and expertise is ideal for helping organizations address these challenges, whilst also meeting their obligations under the various regulatory frameworks.”
