SAN MATEO, Calif., Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- NextLabs, a leading provider of data-centric security software to protect business critical data and applications, announced their European expansion with the launch of a new operation in the UK and the hiring of enterprise industry veteran Mark Clark to run EMEA operations. The company is headquartered in San Mateo, CA with offices around the world, including Singapore and Malaysia. The addition of the UK operation comes as business opportunities in Europe are growing significantly across all industries. This reflects the importance organizations are placing on protecting data and safeguarding information sharing. As regulations and data security challenges increase and become more complex to implement, organizations are looking to a new breed of security software that can scale quickly to prevent violations and automate a vast collection of data security policies and procedures to consistently control, monitor, and audit information handling activities. NextLabs has developed a very strong partnership with SAP and Siemens, and the growth in demand of the joint solutions with SAP and Siemens is requiring more local presence. "SAP is extremely excited that our partner, NextLabs, is currently launching their EMEA operation in London," said Chris Johnson, VP, Sales, SAP GRC EMEA. "It is widely accepted that the next generation of data security and access management solutions will be 'attribute-based' and hence, the SAP GRC suite is emboldened through the close partnership with NextLabs. Security is of the utmost concern to most of our customers and it is vital to us that we can offer the latest technologies and innovations to answer modern business challenges."
