Covata deploys first SafeShare customer on Microsoft Azure Cloud

Sydney, Australia – Covata Limited (ASX: CVT) is pleased to announce it has signed its first SaaS customer on its SafeShare Microsoft Azure Cloud instance.

LBH Partners, a Sydney based technology services business, has entered a monthly SaaS subscription for a minimum period of three (3) years.

On 11 August 2017, Covata announced it would deploy SafeShare on Microsoft’s Azure Cloud platform as software as a service (SaaS) offering and it would be live shortly thereafter following implementation and testing.

Covata Chief Commercial Officer Mr Derek Brown said, “We are delighted to have LBH sign up to our Azure enabled service. LBH has been a strong development partner of Covata and their commitment now as a customer of our platform demonstrates the value we can provide in securing sensitive software development data.”

LBH Partner and Chief Technology Officer Mr Phuong Hoang said, “We are very pleased to be Covata’s first SafeShare customer on Microsoft Azure. The Covata SafeShare solution provides us with a much-needed global cloud-based data security platform to securely exchange highly sensitive data with our enterprise and government customers.”

Mr Michael Langley, Partner at LBH, added: “Security is core to our operating principles; we continually align with industry best practices and international privacy and regulatory requirements. To achieve this, LBH will be embedding Covata’s DSP APIs into our own products and the relevant business applications we develop for our clients. With Covata’s DSP technology offering, LBH will be able to provide the highest level of protection for our client’s sensitive data, at all layers of the application architecture.”

SafeShare is part of the Covata Data Security Platform (DSP), which allows for persistent discovery, protection, and control of sensitive and compliance regulated data no matter where it is stored or how it is used. Unlike other data security solutions which focus on individual technologies like databases or specific Cloud offerings, the Covata Data Security Platform provides a data-centric approach which greatly reduces risks of a data breach and also decreases the costs associated with maintaining multiple, expensive data security point products. Covata’s DSP is compliant with the following international industry data security certifications/regulations: EU GDPR, HIPAA / HITECH, GLBA, PCI DSS, ITAR & EAR.
