NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jan 14, 2014) - Vaultive today announced strategic relationships with public sector technology specialist immixGroup and key Microsoft Mid-Atlantic partner CoreBTS to deliver persistent encryption for companies looking to adopt cloud services. The company also announced that Ken Knueven, previously the federal programs director for Microsoft, has joined Vaultive as its senior director of channels. Knueven will drive Vaultive's channel strategy, focused on facilitating adoption of cloud-based services in tandem with partners in key verticals including the federal, higher education and healthcare markets.
Recent disclosures of extensive data mining programs, such as the NSA's PRISM and MUSCULAR, and escalating concerns about the threat landscape, highlight the continued risks businesses face when storing and processing data in the cloud. Through these partnerships, immixGroup and CoreBTS will offer customers the Vaultive platform to deliver persistent encryption of all data stored and processed by major enterprise cloud applications, ensuring customers can address the security, compliance and governance hurdles to cloud adoption.
"Cloud adoption is at a crossroads, with organizations in every industry balancing the cost and flexibility benefits of tools like Microsoft's Office 365 against high-profile privacy and data ownership concerns making international headlines," said Ken Knueven. "Vaultive's approach to persistently encrypting cloud data empowers businesses to take advantage of the latest cloud applications, without fear of losing direct control of their data. Our partnerships with immixGroup and CoreBTS significantly extend our reach into the public sector and healthcare markets and will help drive significant growth for Vaultive."
