Many organizations in the region struggle with both data classification and data protection because addressing one without the other doesn’t solve the true problem. According to Gartner’s study ‘How to Overcome Pitfalls in Data Classification Initiatives 2019’, “most data classification implementations continue to be unexpectedly complex and fail to produce practical results”. Based on the research, “through 2020, 75% of organizations implementing data classification will report tangible benefits”.
To address customer challenges related to data protection and data classification, ‘Disruptive Distributor’, Spire Solutions, has signed a distribution partnership with Titus to assist organizations in the Middle East with developing an effective data protection strategy that includes data identification, classification, and categorization.
Titus also helps customers to comply with both the UAE Signals Intelligence Agency (SIA), and the Saudi Arabia Monetary Authority (SAMA) cybersecurity frameworks. “As organizations generate more and more data, enterprises need to be able to share information securely and easily without interrupting their daily business activities. By partnering with Titus our aim is to help organizations get more out of their existing security investments, including data loss prevention (DLP), cloud access broker (CASB), encryption, and next-generation firewall (NGFW) solutions,” commented Sapan Agarwal, Deputy VP – Product Management, at Spire Solutions.
“We are excited to work with Spire Solutions to deliver our award-winning technology to regional enterprises looking to develop a truly comprehensive data protection and security strategy,” said Corey Markell, Director – Strategic Partners for Titus. “Working closely with Spire will enable us to engage in opportunities where we can maximise our collective resources to solve the data protection challenges facing customers in the Middle East.”
