Cipherpoint Extends Market Reach Into Hong Kong With DataAssure

DataAssure will work with Cipherpoint in Hong Kong and other parts of South-East Asia to identify and deliver enhanced protection and discovery solutions for sensitive organizational data.

Cipherpoint announces a new partnership with Hong Kong-based integrator and solutions provider DataAssure. Announcing the partnership today, both companies will focus on opportunities in Hong Kong and Macau to deliver enhanced protection for sensitive enterprise data in large enterprises.

Having already identified opportunities in Hong Kong and Macau, the Partnership will focus on delivering independent encryption for SharePoint on-prem and pave the way for extending this solution into cloud applications such as Office365.

The partnership will also provide an opportunity for Cipherpoint to extend the market reach of its sensitive data discovery and classification tool cp.Discover into an important Southeast Asian market. This tool provides an important capability for large organisations looking to migrate their business data to the cloud. The customer journey typically begins with understanding what information it has, where it resides and whether it all must necessarily flow to the cloud.

"Hong Kong is home to some of the most important financial institutions of the Asia-Pacific region. The credibility of these institutions relies on the assurance that their most sensitive business data remains protected at all times, not only from external threats, but from the risk of mistreatment by insiders," said Stephen Hui, CTO of DataAssure, adding, "Cipherpoint's products are the missing link in enabling enterprises to better understand and protect one of their greatest assets, their data."

"The announcement of this partnership today is a fantastic step in broadening the availability of our products in the global market. At this stage of the Company's development, our focus has been on growing our revenue base through the acquisition of new partners and accessing new regions. Partnering with Stephen and his team at DataAssure takes our products into a new and exciting market in Asia-Pacific," said Steven Bliim, Chief Operating Officer and Director.
