FinalCode, provider of enterprise-grade file security system
that claims to protect files shared internally and externally, has opened up its new regional headquarters in London. Apart from the move to expand in Europe, the company has also appointed Jo Below to play the role of Managing Director for the European Zone.
Offerings and recent updates
Headquartered in San Jose, California, FinalCode offers a file encryption and file-based enterprise digital rights management (eDRM) platform that is agnostic to file storage, distribution and content management. As such, FinalCode can work with various applications, devices, cloud storage, content management systems, and collaboration tools. It offers a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and an on-premise virtual appliance software that it claims as easily deployable as per the requirement of individual, department, business project or enterprise. The company also delivers file protection that is encrypted and has a wide array of granular usage controls including file traceability and means to remotely delete files even after they have been distributed.
With its vision of expansion, FinalCode recently announced a new partnership with DLT Solutions
in order to bring file sharing and collaboration security to the public sector, enabling government agencies to protect shared, sensitive files both inside and outside their organizations. The company also joined IBM partner program in August this year to enable businesses to secure access to and usage of sensitive data in files that need to be shared within and outside an organization, while supporting an organization’s investment in IBM’s ECM portfolio.
Below stated, “From the Panama Papers and Qatar National Bank data loss incidents, to changes in EU and U.S. privacy shields, the evidence and obligations for organizations to protect sensitive information in files exchanged amongst employees, contractors and partners are mounting.”
By providing an easy, flexible and persistent solution for businesses to secure shared files, FinalCode can help mitigate file leakage risks. FinalCode offers a compelling approach and opportunity. I am excited to join the team and to introduce our award-winning file security solutions to customers and partners throughout Europe.
Before joining FinalCode, Below served Verint
(provider of analytic software and hardware for security, surveillance and business intelligence markets) as Sales Manager of EMEA. He claims to have expertise in enterprise content management (ECM), security and encryption that will be beneficial for FinalCode. Below has also worked with the defense industry where he helped government agencies, such as NATO, deploy FIPS Level 4 IT security infrastructures in sensitive operations theaters including Afghanistan. He also has, to his credit, sold enterprise resource planning (ERP) software to the financial services, manufacturing and retail industries.
