Credence Security enters into an agreement Sealpath

Credence Security has signed an agreement with Sealpath to bring its robust privacy and protection solutions to the Middle East, Africa and India (MEAI) region.

As per the new partnership agreement, Credence Security will add Sealpath’s Information Rights Management (IRM) solution to its rich portfolio. Sealpath projects a CAGR of around 22% for the IRM market, following the escalation of data privacy and security regulations across the Middle East, and is also hoping to explore untapped markets such as India and Pakistan.

Users get access to IRM via standard tools, such as Microsoft Office and AutoCAD, without having to install additional apps. IRM also offers automatic protection for SharePoint libraries, Office 365, Dropbox, and G-Suite, as well as emails and attachments through Outlook and Exchange. It integrates seamlessly with AD, LDAP, SIEM, DLP and data-classification tools. Sealpath estimates that IRM will allow regional customers to halve their OPEX costs, freeing them up to divert that investment to innovative digital transformation projects.

Sealpath IRM empowers organisations with the ability to see which users are accessing data and when, allowing them to implement effective risk-mitigation practices that revoke access or set expiry dates on files, whether they are at rest, in transit or in use.

The partnership will cover the Middle East, Africa (except Angola and Mozambique), India and Pakistan. Credence Security will concentrate on bringing Sealpath’s innovative IRM solution to industry verticals such as FSI and healthcare enterprises, which must comply with stringent industry regulations that include GDPR, SAMA, NESA, PCI DSS and HIPPA.

“When selecting a regional partner, we were looking for three main attributes,” said Syed Almas Azam, Territory Manager MEA, Sealpath. “First, we needed to ensure a commonality in ethos between our team and that of our partner. Second, our new partner would have to have a strong portfolio of existing offerings supported by an extensive channel network. And third, we would need to see evidence of exceptional ability to deliver high-quality solutions in the cybersecurity and forensics spaces. Credence Security showed us all of these qualities, and we’re excited to embark on this new journey together.”
