EMEA Channel Manager

  • Anywhere

Fortanix is a data-first security company that is approaching cybersecurity in a different way. We protect the data first which means regardless of the continued perimeter-based breaches, customer data is protected, along with business operations and reputation.

Whether organisations are trying to grow revenues, reduce operating costs, enter new markets or adopt new technologies, such as AI, for competitive advantage, data is at the core of all business strategies. Protecting data enhances the ability to collaborate together, fulfil requirements, analyse and plan future paths, resulting in your business, your teams, customers and partners, to safely be more knowledgeable, loyal and successful.

Traditional security approaches fall short to adequately protect company data, therefore the data first approach to defend against continuing cyber threats, ensure agile data security, and accelerate compliance with established regulations and industry standards is vital. That’s why at Fortanix, we believe security starts with your data, whether in use, in transit or at rest – protecting our customers from the inside out.
