Vancouver, BC – Identillect Technologies Corp. (TSX-V:ID) (the “Company” or “Identillect”) is pleased to announced it has signed a European partnership with Safe Data Shop to bring a B2B encrypted email solution to their network of business clients in various industries across Europe. Their focus will be in the legal, financial, government, and real-estate industries.
Safe Data Shop, which specializes in secured data communication, has its head office in Bussum, Netherlands and also has offices throughout Europe. They currently have tens of thousands of users across Europe and anticipate this to grow by more than 30% in 2017.
This is a significant account for Identillect as it will see subscriber volume increase in the European market and is expected to provide substantial growth in 2017.
The partnership with Identillect enables Safe Data Shop clients to ensure the ability to protect its client’s communications with Identillect’s Delivery Trust™ email encryption technology.
Safe Data Shop provides security for its customers and the ability to comply with the EU Data Protection Directive to protect communication in transit. As the advancement of the EU Directive 95/46/EC, the EU Data Protection Directive progresses the demands for securing information while in transit. As of May 2016, this regulation was renamed The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which is a more stringent form of the regulation and contains more significant consequences for non-compliance. If a business is in violation they can experience fines of up to 4% of gross revenue or 20 Million Euro whichever is greater.
Safe Data Shop VP of Operations Germain van Stek states, “We have selected Identillect as our business email security provider based on their stringent security precautions and simplicity to deploy for business and personal use. Safe Data Shop has placed a tremendous amount of importance on security measures to ensure our customer’s data is protected at all times and the partnership with Identillect brings an additional layer to our suite of security products.”
Todd Sexton, CEO of Identillect states, “Safe Data Shop has been a long standing provider of secure communication and as the necessity to secure information has expanded to businesses of all types as well as personal communication Identillect is pleased to be a major security provider for Safe Data Shop. The growth into the European market shows the need to provide security is a worldwide issue and Identillect intends to continually expand its reach to European and Asian countries.”
In 2015, Europe’s security breaches comprised 12% of the world’s data breach and had greater than 84 million records compromised. Europe is trending to see similar statistics for 2016 which enforces the need for security and the fact this is still a significant issue. With these breaches on the rise and the EU Protective Directive with more stringent, regulations for communicating data, the requirement to protect one’s personal and business communications are critical.
Identillect’s Delivery Trust proprietary e-mail encryption delivery technology is targeted at organizations of all sizes, as well as individuals, and is sold to consumers on a monthly subscription basis. The product can be accessed by customers on both desktop and mobile devices, and messages are secured with patented, state-of-the-art encryption technology with the click of a button, ensuring their safety while in transit.
