NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 26, 2012) - Vaultive, a provider of cloud data encryption solutions that enable organizations to leverage the economy and efficiency of cloud computing while maintaining the data security, control and compliance advantages of on-premise computing, today announced the launch of its channel strategy with the introduction of the new Vaultive Advantage Partner Program. The Vaultive Advantage Partner Program provides significant business development investments encouraging proven channel firms to engage clients within Vaultive's channel-centric model.
Additionally, Vaultive has appointed Traci Blowers as director of channels to lead the company's partner strategy and program development. Blowers previously held senior business development and channel management positions with world-class technology companies such as Binary Tree and Ingram Micro.
"Having worked extensively with Traci in the past, I can attest to her considerable expertise, dedication and experience in building highly successful channel programs," said Mark Pierce co-founder and managing officer of InfraScience, an Atlanta-based Microsoft Gold Partner. "As one of the top system integrators for Office 365, we see benefits for our clients in the financial and healthcare vertical to use Vaultive in a Microsoft cloud environment. I commend Vaultive for adding Traci to the team, and look forward to working with her to take advantage of the unmatched capabilities of Vaultive's products."
Vaultive uniquely addresses the four principal business challenges that organizations face when migrating data to the cloud: data security, regulatory compliance, unauthorized data disclosure and international privacy and data residency regulations. Vaultive's enterprise-class cloud data encryption solutions enable customers to encrypt data-at-rest and data-in-use, while enterprise IT retains complete control of the encryption keys. Vaultive's initial product offering, Vaultive for Hosted Exchange, is the only solution developed specifically for Hosted Exchange environments that encrypts data-at-rest and data-in-use, with support for additional applications including CRM, collaboration, communication, database, file sharing and more coming in future releases.
Flagship Vaultive Advantage Partners include Cloud Strategies, Paradyne, ZenData and U-BTech Solutions. Vaultive is currently accepting additional partners that have experience reselling and providing professional services related to cloud computing, Microsoft® Office 365 and data security. Ideal Vaultive Advantage Partners will leverage their established sales force, presales technical support and delivery teams to capture cloud data security market share in the U.S. and internationally.
"With so many businesses today operating globally, organizations are faced with the challenge of complying with a host of growing privacy and data residency regulations, in addition to the multitude of existing data protection and compliance requirements," said Steven Meyer, IT security engineer at ZenData, a Switzerland-based Microsoft Gold Partner focused on security. "Vaultive enables enterprises worldwide to overcome the security and regulatory compliance barriers preventing them from moving sensitive enterprise data to the cloud. Deploying Vaultive is a Best Practice that should be part of every migration to the cloud."
Current incentives of Vaultive Advantage Partner Program include:
- Lifetime annuity commissions
- Deeply discounted partner pricing on Vaultive products for use in-house
- Complimentary training
- Market development funds
- Deal registration
- Opportunity to capture professional services related to implementation and configuration
In the future, the Vaultive Advantage Partner Program will be further extended to grant top-tier partners access to exclusive content such as API Toolkits, lead sharing and Vaultive Roadmap Council participation to beta test and drive early market demand for the next family of commercially supported offerings.
"Vaultive recognizes the value of working with established partners that provide trusted advice and services for clients seeking to leverage the cloud for solutions such as hosted Exchange and Office 365," said Elad Yoran, CEO of Vaultive. "The addition of Traci Blowers and the launch of the Vaultive Advantage Partner Program are critical achievements driving our rapid growth."
Vaultive's encryption enables data to be searched, sorted, indexed, and otherwise processed in the cloud without ever being decrypted. This application of industry-standard AES protects enterprise data from unauthorized access by a third party or the cloud provider, while enabling disclosure requests to be managed independently by the enterprise. Additionally, because sensitive data never resides in the cloud in an unencrypted form, security risks and concerns about data residency are eliminated, while compliance with regulatory requirements such as SOX, GLBA, HIPAA, HITECH and PCI-DSS is achieved.
Vaultive is a provider of cloud data encryption solutions that empower organizations to realize the cost savings, enhanced productivity and operational efficiencies of cloud computing while maintaining the data security, control and compliance advantages of on-premise computing. Vaultive enables this through the deployment of patent-pending data-in-use encryption technology that eliminates the data security, privacy, residency and regulatory compliance concerns associated with cloud deployment. As the only cloud data encryption solution engineered exclusively for Hosted Exchange, including Microsoft® Office 365 and offering support for other leading SaaS applications, Vaultive enables organizations to take advantage of cloud computing without compromise. Vaultive recently raised more than $10 million from leading venture capital firms .406 Ventures, New Science Partners, Harmony Partners and Security Growth Partners.
