help AG, a strategic information security consulting specialist in the Middle East, today announced that it has signed a partnership agreement with Verdasys, a provider of Enterprise Information Protection (EIP) solutions for the Global 2000.
EIP is an emerging, fast-growing market which is driven by a new wave of technology, business and regulatory trends, and help AG though this new partnership is aggressively targeting this market.
“The true strength of EIP solutions is that they adopt a holistic approach to defining and mitigating the risk to sensitive information moving across complete business processes. The benefit of this is that businesses can now share sensitive information freely and securely across both local and global offices, thereby greatly increasing collaboration,” said Stephan Berner, MD at help AG. “Verdasys is a leader in this revolutionary technology and we are confident that their range of solutions will greatly enhance our already impressive product portfolio. help AG is known for our 24/7 local support service capabilities and we will be able to address all of the potential concerns of our Verdasys customers quickly and efficiently.”
Verdasys’s Digital Guardian EIP platform makes it possible for businesses to manage sensitive information based on context and content while gaining visibility into the manner in which it is accessed by employees, partners and third party elements, representatives said.
Recognising the ‘consumerisation’ of IT as a growing trend, the Digital Guardian EIP platform extends to protect data moving to and from consumer-based devices, it was reported. This security framework enables policy enforcement on all popular mobile platforms including iPads, Androids, Windows phones and Blackberry devices.
