WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - February 29, 2016) -  Covata Limited (ASX: CVT), a global leader in data-centric security solutions for enterprises, announced that Cyber Defense Magazine, the industry's leading electronic information security magazine and media partner of the RSA Conference 2016, has named Safe Share as the winner of the 'Cutting Edge Managed File Transfer Solution' category for the 2016 InfoSec Awards. 

Covata Safe Share was bestowed with this accolade by Cyber Defense Magazine after many months of review and judged by leading independent information security experts.

"We're thrilled to recognize next-generation innovation in the information security marketplace and that's why Covata has earned this award from Cyber Defense Magazine. Some of the best InfoSec defenses come from these kinds of forward thinking players who think outside of the box," said Pierluigi Paganini, Editor-in-Chief, Cyber Defense Magazine.

"CDM's recognition of Safe Share further validates our company as an innovator in the EFSS space," said Covata CEO, Trent Telford. "Enterprise customers are not just looking for a file-sharing product; they are looking for a security product. Safe Share has data-centric security baked into its DNA, making it the only file sharing application CISO's can trust. This industry honor is a strong endorsement to the fact that Safe Share is ahead of the curve when it comes to data centric security."

Safe Share is a file-sharing platform that utilizes Covata's unique data-centric approach to encryption; applied before data is stored in the cloud or shared with collaborators. The encryption fully integrates identity, policy and key management; by always validating identity, it controls who has access to the data, implementing policies means that it controls when and how these recipients access the data, and with key management, enterprises are protected from compliance and government mandates. Covata Safe Share therefore adheres to the most rigorous standards of data protection and confidentiality. With Covata Safe Share enterprises and their customers have the assurance that data is always protected, without compromising efficiency or usability.
