Prot-On, a dynamic and growing young European company, has been the only European company named Product and Innovation Leader by KuppingerCole in its recently released Leadership Compass Report on Secure Information Sharing. Prot-On has also been qualified in the report as “Strong Potential” and “Hidden Gem” in the Market/Product and Market/Innovation analysis categories.
All companies and institutions have an increasing need to share confidential information with partners, clients, patients, auditors and service providers using many communication channels. Today, more than 90% of companies share confidential information without applying proper protection mechanisms. Doing so, they face significant risks associated with potential data breaches, loss of intellectual property and regulation compliance. The Leadership Compass Report on Secure Information Sharing document provides advice for selection of Secure Information Sharing technologies, a field that is already perceived as one of the most relevant countermeasures to protect businesses from information theft.
“Prot-On is in the Leader section; they offer a cloud-based solution providing complete control over data at rest, in-motion and in-use with a custom-designed key management solution. Prot-On demonstrate innovation in their user interface and easy control of document permissions by users,” wrote Graham Williamson, Senior Analyst at KuppingerCole.
“Prot-On is honored to be considered a Leader in KuppingerCole’s Leadership Compass for Secure Information Sharing. As a fast growing startup we appreciate the recognition and evaluation of our product quality, innovation and growth potential. We are glad to be ahead of most solutions in this market and be the only European company in that position,” said Oscar Maire-Richard, Prot-On CEO.
