ShardSecure® Announces Alliance with KPMG
ShardSecure, a leading provider of cloud data security and resilience software, has formed a new alliance with KPMG LLP in the United States. KPMG LLP is one of the top cyber consulting and advisory firms globally.
KPMG LLP will bundle ShardSecure’s MicroshardTM solution with cloud security service offerings in the US. This will provide a robust cloud security solution for our joint enterprise customers. KPMG also intends to support ShardSecure on go-to-market strategy to meet the growing need for data protection, privacy, and resilience in the cloud using jointly developed cloud security solution offerings.
“KPMG’s cybersecurity and data protection services in the cloud bundled with ShardSecure’s data security and resilience software will be an industry-leading innovative solution to address the growing challenges with data protection in public and hybrid cloud environments,” said Abhijeet Kulkarni, Managing Director of Cloud Security at KPMG. “We’re pleased to be part of this collaborative relationship and help enable modern enterprises to fully and securely embrace cybersecurity for data in the cloud.”
KPMG is a strategic investor in ShardSecure, providing cyber services including cloud security, cyber strategy, cyber transformation, and cyber threat management offerings to clients. Now through the alliance, these combined offerings will help clients improve their cybersecurity posture with critical infrastructure, including ransomware protection and recovery, cloud privileged access, data lifecycle management, incident response, data loss prevention (DLP), data obfuscation, data protection and privacy strategy, and zero trust.
“Enterprise customers are asking for cost-effective and integrated cybersecurity software and service offerings from their trusted partners,” said Ed Amoroso, CEO of TAG Cyber and former CISO at AT&T. “This strategic alliance between ShardSecure and KPMG will give organizations just that.”
ShardSecure’s Microshard technology reduces the impact of cloud-based ransomware, supports secure cold storage migration, and offers strong cross-border data protection for regulatory compliance. Its self-healing data helps companies maintain high availability and robust data resilience in the face of outages, attacks, and other disruptions.
The ShardSecure solution also renders sensitive data unintelligible and of no value in the wrong hands, helping to ensure data confidentiality in multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud environments and keeping data in the hands of its owners.
“We’re thrilled to be expanding our strategic relationship with KPMG,” said Bob Lam, CEO and Co-Founder of ShardSecure. “KPMG offers us the platform and credibility to continue being a long-term cloud data security partner for Fortune 1000 enterprises. Many organizations are still in the early stages of migrating their data to the cloud, and our goal is to become an essential part of their journey.”
