Pegasystems (NASDAQ: PEGA), the leading provider of business process management ( BPM) and customer relationship management ( CRM) software solutions, has standardized on Vormetric Data Security to reassure its global customer base that it is securing their data based on security best practices and compliance requirements. Vormetric, the leader in enterprise data security for physical, virtual and cloud environments, was selected for its ability to automate Pegasystems' data encryption within a leading Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud service provider as well as to increase the processing speed at which Pegasystems can encrypt its volume within a cloud infrastructure.
“Our partnership with a recognized data security expert like Vormetric gives us a distinct competitive advantage,” said Jim Walker, Global Head of Pega Cloud Operations and Security. “Our customers are eager to move to the cloud and protecting their data is a foremost concern. With Vormetric Data Security in place, our clients can be confident in the security of our services when it comes to protecting their high-value data. And, our government clients are pleased that we’re using a solution that is already relied upon by major federal agencies.”
“End customers rely on cloud service providers like Pegasystems to protect their data and the best way to do that is to encrypt it at its source,” said Frank Tycksen, Vormetric’s vice president of customer success. “As recent news demonstrates, hackers can break into networks to steal high-value data. Many security products improperly focus on trying to stop threats at the perimeter rather than focusing as close to the data as possible. The Pegasystems deployment is a fantastic example of protecting what matters in a dynamic cloud environment.”
