Effortlessly protect data
Veronica Martin sat down with Joao Beato Esteves, Sales Director at SealPath, to discuss GITEX 2022 and the company’s plans for the region.
Can you tell our readers about some of the solutions and partnerships at GITEX this year?
I represent SealPath, which is a Spanish publisher created in the Basque country 15 years ago. The company has a unique solution that we call IRM (Information Rights Management), which means that we can encrypt the data and at the same time control the rights that everyone has on the file, which gives the power to control sensitive information to anyone.
The Middle East and Saudi Arabia are really important regions for us because the regulations are stricter here, so many institutions are now asking for data protection.
What are the key messages you would like to pass on to people attending GITEX?
We have a strong partnership with GulfIT, one of our distributors and our goal here is to show our solution and meet our customers and partners face to face. We did a few demonstrations of our products to potential customers from Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, but the most important thing for us was to be able to meet people in person, so they could see that there is a real person behind the mark.
What IT technologies and trends are driving innovation for your business?
Data classification is one of the main trends and it should be the first layer of any company’s security strategy, because you need to understand what you need to protect, what should be public or confidential. We have seen a huge demand for data classification in this region.
What differentiates your business from your competitors in the market?
Our area isn’t overcrowded and we only have a few competitors around the world, but what stands out is that we’re the most user-friendly solution, so we really make it easy for the regular user who doesn’t don’t have a thorough understanding of CE. For example, if I want to encrypt the document, I just drag and drop a document to a folder in an easy way.
Our second strength is compatibility. Most companies use Microsoft Office files and we are compatible with them, but we go much further as we are also compatible with PDF, AutoCAD, on zip files, etc.
Moreover, we are a very agile and flexible company, so if a partner needs technical assistance, they can be reassured that we will assist them at all times in a fast and efficient manner.
