Being asked by The CEO Magazine, Mr Anand Kekre, CEO of Vaultize, revealed they don’t have any competitor. He explained, “ Unlike others, Vaultize follows holistic information-centric platform approach to file security where the corporate documents are secured and protected throughout the lifecycle (i.e. at-rest, in-motion and in-use), across end-user devices (company-managed and BYOD) and even beyond corporate network after the files are shared with third-party. All this is without compromising on end-user experience (including mobility) – creating a win-win for enterprise IT and employees. So the focus for security is on information (or content) and not on devices or network (like in traditional perimeter-based security and mobile device management). ” “ Competitors are mostly point products and focus more on end-user functionalities. Most of them have ignored the security aspects of enterprises.” he added.
