Cipherpoint Partners With Global Innovation Company NTT DATA Deutschland GmbH
Jointly announcing the partnership today, both companies will work together in the German-Speaking Region of Europe to deliver better protection for sensitive company data.
SYDNEY, October 27, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Cipherpoint is pleased to announce a new partnership with leading business and IT solutions provider NTT DATA Deutschland GmbH ("NTT DATA"). Jointly announcing the partnership today, both companies will work together in the German-Speaking Region of Europe to deliver better protection for sensitive company data.
The Partnership will focus on delivering independent encryption for SharePoint on-prem. Using this solution, of which NTT DATA is the only IT service provider in the DACH (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) region to offer, organisations can continue to effectively secure their SharePoint platforms without reliance upon providers outside Europe.
Effective encryption of sensitive company data is currently only possible for SharePoint online, as Microsoft has discontinued the support of encrypting data for on-prem deployments of SharePoint. As a result, users of the collaboration platform are faced with the dilemma: abandon on-prem use of SharePoint and move to SharePoint Online, where data may be subject to access by US Authorities, thus compromising European data protection regulations. With its unique encryption and data protection technology in combination with security services from NTT DATA, companies in Europe will be able to identify, classify and protect sensitive data, independently of third party vendors.
"Security is the basis of successful business, sustainable innovation and trustworthy cooperation. This is why we place the security of our customers at the centre of our activities. Cipherpoint's solutions help to achieve this, as they address important requirements in dealing with insider risks and compliance. This also includes the secure use of SharePoint as one of the most frequently used applications by enterprises," said Patrick Schraut, SVP Cybersecurity at NTT DATA DACH, adding, "This partnership will help us to provide our customers with advanced detection, classification and protection of sensitive data."
"We see the DACH region as the core of the European market, it plays a pioneering role in driving the data protection market not only in this region, but worldwide. This is why we have focused on the DACH region and last year established our Headquarters in Germany. With NTT DATA, we have gained a leading security provider as a partner. I am delighted that together we can help NTT DATA's European and Global customers to master their digital transformation journey. Our key products cp.Protect and cp.Discover are an important foundation for any digital transformation or cloud deployment. With the explosive growth in working from home this year, it is highly important for the secure exchange of business information across collaboration systems such as SharePoint," said Steven Bliim, Chief Operating Officer and Director.
