Protegrity Named One of Connecticut’s Top Technology Companies; Honored For Developing Innovative Data Security Management
Stamford, CT, October 23, 2009 – Protegrity Corporation, a leading provider of Data Security Management Solutions, is pleased to announce that the company has again won a spot on the Tech Top 40 list compiled by The Connecticut Technology Council and UHY LLP, an independent certified public accounting firm. Winning companies are selected on the basis of their strong revenue growth over the preceding four years and must also have developed proprietary technology that provides a significant portion of the company’s operating revenues. Protegrity’s focus on delivering innovative data security management solutions that comprehensively protect and manage critical business data from acquisition to disposal has been key to the company’s sustained revenue growth. Protegrity currently holds 10 US patents for key data security technologies, with 15 patents pending. Managing enterprise data security is more difficult than protecting the actual data and businesses require more than simple encryption solutions to meet their compliance and data security needs. The most trusted brands around the globe rely on the Protegrity Data Protection System (DPS), a complete data protection platform that secures critical information against breaches, insider misuse, malware and human error. Protegrity DPS fully supports the risk-mitigation approach to security — protecting data in accordance with its sensitivity, value and business usage. The risk model enables an enterprise to invest budget and efforts where they matter most, comply easily with regulatory requirements such as PCI-DSS and achieve the right balance between costs and security. Risk-centered data security requires a solution that offers an integrated, flexible set of technologies that can be deployed individually or in combination as shifting security, compliance and business needs demand. DPS provides strong encryption, Format Controlled Encryption (FCE), masking, monitoring, tokenization and an award-winning key management system. DPS secures applications, databases, and files, supports all major operating system and database platforms, and is engineered for high performance and scalability in the most complex, high-demand business environments. DPS has gained significant usage among enterprises around the world in all industries, particularly retail, financial, government, manufacturing and education. “Protegrity is pleased to be included in this list of Connecticut’s best performing companies,” said Paul Giardina, President and CEO, Protegrity. “We credit our continued success to our terrific team of outstanding data security experts and our commitment to developing ground-breaking, sensible data security solutions for the enterprise.” ###
