STAMFORD, Conn. – April 29, 2015 – Protegrity announced today a partnership with Xactly to help clients extend additional enterprise data security to a leading cloud-based incentive compensation solution to meet strict data protection policies and residency laws. "While some organizations may actually be using security concerns as an excuse to avoid cloud hype, security along with its related privacy implications continue to be the most commonly cited reasons for not making greater use of public clouds," wrote analyst Jay Heiser in the Gartner "Hype Cycle for Cloud Security, 2014."1 The report continues, "Surprisingly, the biggest potential for further reducing unauthorized access to data now lies in the hands of the cloud buyer, as cloud service providers increasingly point to partner companies as sources of new security and control technologies. Current and potential cloud customers must avoid the trap of ‘cloud complacency’: assuming that anything that's as easy to use as a cloud-based service must automatically be secure and reliable." The Protegrity Cloud Gateway protects sensitive data before it gets to the cloud, giving organizations the ability to rapidly adopt solutions like Xactly Incent by extending to the cloud the same trusted technology and unique policies used to protect their core on premise systems. Data can be encrypted or tokenized using a no-code, configurable interface without impacting business processes or sacrificing the functionality and features of the Xactly solution. “The Protegrity Cloud Gateway removes barriers for customers who otherwise wouldn’t consider implementing SaaS solutions due to their unique needs around data security and privacy by bringing an added layer of data protection and control to clients who require it, said Evan Ellis, president, Xactly Corporation, which has been positioned as a Leader by Gartner in the 2015 Magic Quadrant for Sales Performance Management.2 [blockquote]"By partnering with Xactly we will be able to help companies harness the power of Xactly’s leading incentive solutions while meeting internal privacy standards or external regulations," said Protegrity CEO Suni Munshani. "As more business applications move to the cloud, Protegrity stands ready to help ease that transition for companies who want to have the highest levels of enterprise data security without negatively impacting the performance of the SaaS solutions they use to run their business."[/blockquote]
