Wiesbaden, Germany - 19 August 2020 - Enterprise data security experts comforte AG have announced a new partnership with growing channel distributors Distology.
Comforte specialises in data protection technologies that provide GDPR and PCI compliance for business around the globe, such as data discovery, tokenisation and encryption, and as a result they have quickly become market leaders in their field thanks to their impenetrable solutions.
Their products are highly regarded by the payment industry and in 2020 comforte were winners of the PCI Excellence Award after being recognized as one of the industry’s most outstanding examples of best practice in payment security and PCI DSS projects and implementations.
As evidence of their expertise, comforte have been adopted by one of the world’s largest Payment Service Providers in order to protect sensitive data associated with billions of cards and therefore achieve compliance with data privacy standards and regulations like PCI DSS and GDPR.
The company securely handles the personal data associated with billions of credit and debit cards and processes tens of thousands of transaction messages per second. This vast, high-speed network facilitates electronic funds transfers from nearly 50 million merchant locations, over a million ATMs and more than 15,000 financial clients across every continent in the world, the sole exception being Antarctica.
Michael Deissner, Chief Executive Officer for comforte was delighted to reveal the news of the partnership:
“We are thrilled to be part of Distology’s best-of-breed cybersecurity vendor portfolio, and we are proud to be included in the ecosystem of cybersecurity experts & solution providers that Distology has created in EMEA.”
“Recent times have shown over and over again, how crucial data security is in a world that is seeing digital acceleration with unprecedented speed. Therefore, our mission to help organizations protect the data they have been entrusted with, has never been more important.”
comforte helps to enable sensitive data-in-use to be de-identified and secured using scaled and resilient tokenisation, quickly unblocking the journey to a cloud-native strategy for applications, analytics, and machine learning workloads where data is often most attacked by malware and insiders or lost to configuration issues.
comforte AG has won a host of industry awards, including Best Security Company 2020 at the 2020 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards and named a Grand Trophy Winner at Info Security Products Guide 16th Annual 2020 Global Excellence Awards which complements Distology’s mission to represent the best-in-breed and most disruptive security vendors.
Stephen Rowlands, Sales Director for Distology commented:
“The solution that comforte have created solves a problem that is only becoming more imperative as businesses move their data and assets to the cloud.”
“Payment processes for instance have undergone a complete transformation in the past 10 years. We’re now making a record number of transactions online – in both our business and personal lives, so I’m particularly impressed by comforte’s tokenisation product which will help to keep payment information safe and secure in addition to any private customer data.”
“Innovation within the field of data protection and security is only ever going to become more important and so we envisage it will be hugely popular technology with our partners.”
comforte helps organisations to address regulatory business and industry concerns such as CCPA, GDPR, LGPD, PCI DSS, HIPAA, and internal data security mandates.
