BURLINGTON, MA, May 4, 2020 – Privafy, the cloud-native cybersecurity company redefining how to secure Data-in-Motion, today announced that Sendoso, the leading Sending Platform, has selected its security-as-a-service solution to protect the company’s remote workforce from critical vulnerabilities often found in traditional remote access solutions such as Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) and firewalls. Privafy’s cloud-native service will secure Sendoso’s distributed workforce and the company’s sensitive data as it moves across cloud workloads, applications and mobile devices.
Cybercriminals have capitalized on the recent surge of remote workers, causing an uptick in malicious activities such as social engineering, phishing scams and most notably, compromised VPN services. According to an alert by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the need to ensure a “heightened state of cybersecurity” with regards to telework is now more apparent than ever. Legacy remote access technology, such as VPNs are not equipped to withstand the potential risks facing the increasing amount of teleworkers. Without the proper security protocols in place, as well as challenges brought forth through heavy manual deployments and the lack of patch management capabilities, VPN technology has become the new entry point for cybercriminals.
“We handle large amounts of customer information and therefore security is a top priority for our business,” said Kyle Hoffman, IT Manager, Sendoso. “However, the current global pandemic pushed our employees to remote settings and forced us to shift the way we think about security. We chose Privafy’s security application because it was the only solution in the market that could quickly deliver remote access and keep our customer data safe. Privafy goes beyond secure connectivity and delivers a comprehensive set of security functions at a fraction of the price of traditional point products.”
Sendoso will leverage Privafy CloudEdge to provide secure remote access to critical applications and data in the cloud, enforcing security policies consistently as data moves between the cloud, remote WFH employees and on-premise environments. The company will implement Privaf AppEdge to provide more than 200 employees worldwide with a secure, encrypted connection to its corporate network, cloud workloads, and applications from any device.
With Privafy, Sendoso receives a that integrates the functionality of encryption systems and VPNs, firewalls, DDoS protection, intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS and IPS), data loss prevention (DLP) and deep content inspection technology to deliver comprehensive protection wherever customer data travels.
“Sendoso is revolutionizing how organizations connect and engage with customers and prospects; because of this, it’s imperative that the company’s large global workforce can securely connect to business-critical applications and workloads,” said Chris Hemme, CFO Privafy. “The problem today is that COVID-19 is pushing many cloud-based organizations, like Sendoso, to remote settings. Work from home initiatives increase the surface area and frequency of attacks. Organizations need to think beyond remote worker protection and fill the gaps traditional security offerings, such as VPNs, don’t detect.”
