IRVINE, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwired - April 10, 2017) - Identillect Technologies Corp. (the "Company" or "Identillect") (TSX VENTURE:ID)(OTCQB:IDTLF), a trusted leading provider of SaaS email security today announced that it achieved double-digit subscriber growth over the past two quarters. The Company's growing momentum was driven by adoption of Identillect's Delivery Trust™ email encryption solution by new customers to displace solutions from other vendors. Identillect's subscriber base grew by 34 percent from the beginning of Q4 2016 (18.5%) to the end of Q1 2017 (15.5%). Identillect also continued to expand its global reseller network through new strategic technology alliances.
Identillect's Delivery Trust™ is a trusted email security platform which provides businesses of all sizes with the most effective and economical way to protect client personal identifying information and comply with increased regulatory requirements.
"Identillect has started 2017 strong. We are focusing our efforts to be the leader in security and data protection for our customers." said Todd Sexton, Identillect CEO. "To achieve this goal and to continue to build momentum, we are actively enhancing our product portfolio, expanding our sales teams and reseller networks and continually seeking new opportunities to meet the growing demand for cost effective, compliant cyber security solutions for business."
Recent well-publicized data breaches have put businesses on alert. On average, the cost to business of a data breach has risen to $4 million per incident - up 29% since 2013 - according to the 2016 Poneman Cost of Data Breach Study. In addition to rising total cost, the average cost per stolen record - personally identifiable, payment, or health information about an individual contained in a Company's database, for example - the cost per lost record has grown to $158 from $154 last year. Healthcare, a highly-regulated industry that trades in some of the most intimate personal information - which can include patient names, medical histories, credit card data, and Social Security Numbers - has the highest cost per stolen record at $355.
There's a simple lesson for businesses: Don't be caught off guard when the next data breach affecting your firm comes to light. When businesses delay the implementation of a solution such as Delivery Trust™ or implement an inferior solution they run significant risk of being out of regulatory compliance, eroding customer confidence, experiencing a loss of market share, as well as becoming a cyber security statistic.
