Inaugural SI partnership accelerates the adoption of ALTR’s high-performance blockchain-enabled cybersecurity solution for data monitoring, governance, and protection.
AUSTIN, TX and PHILADELPHIA, PA – July 19, 2018 – ALTR, the first software company to unleash the cybersecurity benefits of blockchain for the enterprise, and CAI (Computer Aid, Inc.), a global Information Technology (IT) application management and outsourcing provider, today announced that the ALTR data-security platform is now available as a managed service offering through CAI. As ALTR’s inaugural systems integrator (SI) partner, CAI now offers the ALTR platform to its global roster of Fortune 1000 clients and public-sector customers that include major federal, state, and local entities, making it possible for enterprise and other complex organizations to buy blockchain-enabled data security as a service. The ALTR platform is the industry’s first software solution designed to harness blockchain’s virtually inviolable structure and apply it to data security.
“As the inaugural systems integrator to deliver the ALTR platform as a managed service, this partnership is proof positive of our commitment to bring meaningful, innovative solutions that transform technology and IT operations into drivers of success,” said Tony Salvaggio, founder, and CEO at CAI. “For the clients, we serve across industry sectors from government to the enterprise, the ALTR platform is an important addition to our integrated portfolio of technologies and services.”
CAI will now provide the ALTR platform, which enables ultra-secure monitoring, access, and storage of critical information, as part of its technology lineup and consulting services. For CAI clients across industries spanning financial services, healthcare, entertainment, manufacturing, government, retail, and transportation, this comes at a crucial time. The rapid adoption of cloud, mobile apps, and the Internet of Things has set off an explosion of new threat vectors to the vital data held by these companies and organizations.
Moving beyond failed and outmoded perimeter systems that are stuck in an unending loop of patching a constantly evolving attack surface, the ALTR platform is designed to eliminate threats altogether through core approaches in a private blockchain, in-line data techniques, real-time alerting, and reporting for business enablement. It connects applications to data, helping to make mobility and cloud initiatives safe as organizations adopt them. Global organizations can reap immediate benefits from using the ALTR platform, especially as they grapple to comply with risk and compliance challenges such as GDPR, ITAR/EAR, NIST, and other mandates.
