We’re on G-Cloud 9

Safe Share awarded classification and available to the UK government and public sector marketplace 

London, United Kingdom – 26 May 2017 – Covata Limited (ASX: CVT), a leader in data-centric security solutions, today announced its flagship Safe Share product will be available on Crown Commercial Service’s G-Cloud 9 from late May 2017, suitable for highly sensitive or greater than official/official sensitive file sharing.

“We are pleased to continue to offer the UK public sector access to our encryption-based, data-level security solution, Safe Share,” said Ted Pretty, Covata’s CEO and MD. “In a world where cyber attacks are becoming regular and costly occurrences, it’s critical that public sector data is protected with the most stringent security.

“This is necessary not just to maintain the privacy of citizens in this GDPR-era, but also to prevent the potentially devastating effects of sensitive information falling into the wrong hands, as we have seen with recent ransomware releases and even non-malicious internal breaches. Only with solutions that can guarantee a granular level of encryption, access controls, policy restrictions and a full audit trail, can security really be assured,” he said.

Already in use by 15 Australian government departments, Safe Share provides true end-to-end security and is built on the Covata Platform which takes a patented and highly effective approach to securing data by tying identity to policy and key management.

“Safe Share allows data to be shared and utilised across organisations, regardless of the file type, network, device or country. These collaborative features, combined with robust security and encryption, provide a solution well-suited to the public sector,” Pretty concluded.

About Safe Share

With Safe Share, each individual file is encrypted at upload, while it is stored and wherever it travels, and decrypted only at its intended destination. This ensures data is always protected whether it is within an organisation’s network, shared with external parties beyond an organisation’s boundaries, to mobile devices and to the cloud. Organisations can therefore protect themselves from internal and external data breaches, as well as meet critical governance and compliance requirements, while simultaneously ensuring the storage, sharing and retrieval of data is as collaborative and streamlined as possible.

Safe Share provides full organisational control allowing security and privilege aspects to be tightly managed and updated instantaneously. The application of classifications to files and folders ensures only users who have been granted access will be able to see their content. The status of every piece of data can be tracked with full audit trail functionality, letting users and administrators know who accessed what and when.

The efficiency gains of using Safe Share are especially significant for the public sector. While many security solutions may add additional complexity and integration issues, it has been designed to be intuitive, user-friendly and requiring only minimal training. This is evidenced by Safe Share’s use in 15 Australian government departments, including the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) and the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.
