NH data security companies form partnership
"There is a resurgence of this type of organized crime, and you have to be hypervigilant about it. You should never feel secure," said Shawn Allaway, CEO for ConverterTechnology, a company that is teaming up with FlowTraq of Lebanon to provide a more robust network security option for its customers.
"Today, there is no greater risk to companies than attacks on their internal systems. With FlowTraq added to our roster, we can provide more comprehensive data risk mitigation solutions to the enterprise," said Allaway.
"For nearly 15 years, our team has effectively been helping enterprise-level companies mitigate their risk when initiating an upgrade to newer versions of Microsoft Windows and Office," he said. "As we have grown, the biggest challenge for our company is to diversity in ways that augment our product line and extend into other areas of a business where risk is involved."
"The ultimate goal of this partnership is to equip network operation security teams with tools to catch bad guys snooping around trying to get their hands on sensitive documents," Vincent Berk, CEO of FlowTraq, said in a statement.
"Entering this strategic partnership with ConverterTechnology allows us to broaden the range of enterprises FlowTraq can help protect," he added.
"With modern technology, one line of defense is not good enough. These bad guys are smart, and they know how to get through that," Allaway said. "This product is another step of security to secure massive data streams and weed out the noise to locate anomalies. It looks for permanent recognition and what is out of band."
"So how does this happen?" Allaway said. "At some point the data has to leave the building through a corporate server, and at some point to the bad guys. If we can catch when the data leaves, it will help. This is just another lock on your door."
