NetIQ and TecHarbor Extend Solutions With Covertix Partnership

Combined capabilities create unique offerings for true comprehensive data protection.

3 February 2015

NetIQ and TecHarbor B.V. announced today a partnership agreement with Covertix, a global/Israeli cyber-security software provider, to further extend the best-of-breed solutions they have been jointly delivering to more comprehensively address the critical data protection demands of enterprise customers spanning on-premise, virtual, mobile, and cloud environments.

Covertix empowers organizations to embrace technology trends like cloud and mobility with confidence that sensitive data can be protected anywhere it travels, without affecting business continuity or forcing changes in end users' behavior. The Covertix SmartCipher product suite delivers persistent control and detailed visibility of file and data protection—regardless of network, platform, application, or data type.

"The clients we work with are facing greater risk and more complex threats to their corporate data and intellectual property than ever before," said Henk van der Heijden, founder and partner of TecHarbor B.V. "Our ability to extend the capabilities of NetIQ Identity, Access and Security solutions with Covertix SmartCipher offers companies a unique and comprehensive data protection solution - one that is both context aware, regardless of environment—but yet centrally managed and monitored. This helps our customers meet today's most pressing data protection demands."

As a NetIQ Gold Partner, TecHarbor works with NetIQ Identity, Access and Security technologies to deliver comprehensive data protection solutions that address growing threats - both internal and external - to corporate systems and data.

"Enterprise customers continue to struggle with data protection initiatives. Ongoing security breaches clearly demonstrate the importance of protecting sensitive and critical data regardless of where it resides," said Ton Musters, vice president, EMEA Sales at NetIQ. "Partnerships like the one we have with TecHarbor and Covertix are crucial to our customers. Our combined knowledge, expertise and experience, coupled with our proven, trusted software will help customers securely manage unstructured data within and beyond the traditional boundaries of today's enterprise."
