Enterprises Across Europe Look to Protegrity for Data Security Leadership and Solutions

Protegrity Hosts Technology Day in Stockholm; Leads Tokenisation Discussion at PCI Europe Event

STAMFORD, CT and STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN--(Marketwire - Nov 29, 2011) - Protegrity USA, Inc., a leading provider of end-to-end data security solutions, is helping companies across Europe, including Preem, the biggest oil company in Sweden, to protect their customers' data from cybercriminals and malicious insiders and achieve PCI-DSS compliance. The company will host a special Technology Day in Stockholm, Sweden, on December 6, and then will participate in PCI Europe in Amsterdam on December 8. Both events will highlight Protegrity's Data Security Platform, which tokenises data more easily and quickly than any other tokenisation method, eliminating performance and scalability issues while reducing the cost and resource burdens associated with meeting compliance requirements.

"Security breaches impact businesses of all sizes and are particularly troubling in today's fragile economy," said Suni Munshani, CEO of Protegrity. "We welcome the opportunity to discuss with information security and compliance professionals from European businesses how to deploy cost-effective solutions that can lighten the compliance burden while maintaining high levels of protection for sensitive customer data. PCI Europe is a powerful opportunity to connect with these professionals, and the excellent response we've seen thus far to our Technology Day Stockholm underscores the growing interest in Protegrity's tokenisation technology."
