Seclore, a global vendor in rights management, and Boldon James, a provider of data classification and secure messaging software, are announcing a global OEM partnership. As part of this strategic partnership agreement, which includes deep technical collaboration and joint global go-to-market, Boldon James’ classification software will be integrated with secure rights management.
With this announcement, the two companies are launching an end-to-end, automated data protection and compliance solution. Customers now have a straightforward way to protect data from the point of identifying and classifying sensitive data, to then securing data, auditing data and ensuring data compliance with regulations such as GDPR, NIST and NYDFS.
Under the terms of the OEM agreement, by automating data-centric security with this integrated solution from two global vendors, Seclore and Boldon James are removing what has been one of the stickiest barriers for protecting information end to end – the complexities of user adoption. Now users simply select a Boldon James classification label when they create or share documents and other types of files, and Seclore’s persistent protection automatically attaches based on policy rules that the customer has predetermined according to their security requirements.
“We are delighted that Seclore has selected Boldon James to deliver a world class data classification capability to its customers,” said Martin Sugden, CEO at Boldon James. “Boldon James continues to be the best-of-breed partner for data classification to provide customers with competitive advantage and we are excited to be working with Seclore to offer greater protection throughout the data lifecycle.”
“Customers now have one solution that delivers end-to-end, data-centric security with data classification from the global innovation leader, Boldon James, with rights management, auditing and data compliance capabilities from Seclore,” says Vishal Gupta, Founder and CEO, Seclore.
“Today’s announcement is a key milestone in our strategy to deliver automated data security, both at the user level and through our pre-built connectors with best-in-class enterprise applications and systems.”
Seclore offers the market’s first fully browser-based data-centric security solution, which enables organisations to control the usage of files wherever they go, both within and outside of the organisation’s boundaries. The ability to remotely enforce and audit who can view, edit, copy, screen share, and redistribute files empowers organisations to embrace mobility, file-sharing, and external collaboration with confidence. With over 6,000 companies in 29 countries using Seclore to protect 10 petabytes of data, Seclore is helping organisations achieve their data security, governance, and compliance objectives.
Boldon James has helped organisations protect their sensitive and business-critical data for more than 30 years.
