Amersham, UK – 8 December 2008 - Protegrity, a global provider of data security management solutions, has signed an agreement with Global Secure Systems (GSS) to resell Protegrity’s Defiance® Security Suite in UK and Ireland. GSS is the first of what will be a family of Protegrity channel partners across Europe who specialise in the data security.

Ian Schenkel, VP EMEA at Protegrity says, “GSS is one of the largest security consultancies in the UK and its people understand the data security space inside out. As a niche supplier of software for protecting sensitive information from acquisition to deletion across multiple platforms, Protegrity’s products complement GSS’s expertise perfectly - it’s a great match.”

David Hobson, managing director of GSS adds, “We’ve seen a rise in interest in data encryption amongst our blue chip clients with PCI DSS as the main driver. With the Defiance product suite a company can meet almost half of the 12 requirements and without breaking the bank. It is quick to roll out so will enable us to help organisations become compliant in under 12 months rather than the years that some projects are scheduled for at present – a huge cost-saving in the present climate.”

Protegrity will be one of 11 vendors supporting GSS at its Technology Showcase on 29 January 2009 in Guildford. The free one day event includes a series of short educational seminars and a small exhibition. The aim is to enable existing and potential customers to hear a line-up of cutting-edge vendors, and also have time to speak to them individually to discuss their own issues and challenges.
