Cambridge, MA, 6 December 2012
Cryptzone, the European IT security and threat mitigation specialist, today announced its expansion plans within the North American market. Under new management direction since May of this year, Cryptzone has declared its strategy to invest more resources into the region. Additional staff in sales and professional services are being recruited and increased marketing funds will be made available to support this drive for sales growth.
"Expanding our presence in North America and Canada will help Cryptzone capitalize on the successes we are already experiencing here," says Jeff Sherwood, VP Americas at Cryptzone. "Regulatory compliance is requiring organizations to look for more secure methods of storing, accessing and sharing sensitive information with the right people at the right time. Proving compliance to auditors is also becoming more critical. Cryptzone has strong solutions with our AppGate security platform to address these challenges, complete with valuable governance insight for management and auditors."
Today Microsoft SharePoint represents a massive opportunity for Cryptzone across the world due to the lack of strong security tools to protect sensitive data. However with more than 70% of Fortune 500 companies having selected Microsoft's software platform, Cryptzone's eCollaboration software will help many organizations to identify and secure information that is currently stored on SharePoint unsecured.
