Thales to distribute Votiro’s Secure File Gateway product line as new offering; enabling government agencies to provide efficient digital services with no risk of malware penetration

WASHINGTON, D.C. – July 28, 2020 – Votiro, a global leader in positive selection™ technology, announced a partnership and distribution agreement with Thales. Thales will offer proven solutions from Votiro’s Secure File Gateway product line—including Email and Web Applications, to protect government agencies from all file-borne threats. The Secure File Gateway product line ensures that threat-free content, such as documents and attachments can enter government agencies’ networks without interrupting data flow or hindering work activity.

Thales and Votiro will leverage their strategic relationship to enable government agencies in North America to provide efficient digital services with no risk of malware penetration using the Votiro Secure File Gateway product line. Votiro’s solutions have been adopted by governments worldwide to neutralize file-borne threats and protect external-facing applications. Thales’s distribution of Votiro’s Secure File Gateway for Email protects against some of the most common targets for malicious attacks, including banking scams, spear phishing, zero-day, and ransomware. Secure File Gateway for Web Applications advances security measures and capabilities for applications.

“Votiro’s Secure File Gateway product line is trusted by governments around the world, and now our new partnership with Thales will allow more federal government agencies in the U.S. the opportunity to access solutions at a time when security is paramount,” said CEO and founder of Votiro, Aviv Grafi. “We look forward to expanding our footprint in North America and growing our partnership with Thales, who have made it their mission to provide innovative solutions to protect the most vital data, from the core to the cloud to the field for defense, intelligence, and civilian agencies across the U.S. Federal Government.”

“Partnering with Votiro and distributing the Secure File Gateway product line will help government agencies streamline operations by securing the overwhelming amount of incoming data that governments must process,” said Kirk Spring, President of Thales Trusted Cyber Technologies. “Utilizing this solution is one step governments can take to work towards a primary goal—to ensure the well-being of their people through leveraging technology to improve everyday services.”

As more governments around the world embrace technology to boost efficiency and digitize bureaucratic processes, the benefits of a partnership between Votiro and Thales become more apparent. Government agencies embracing digital transformation grant access to more external functions, while also creating more breach points into the organization. Unchecked, this digital growth can correlate with an increased risk of cyberattack, particularly among government targets who find themselves exposed to the most sophisticated types of document-borne attacks. The partnership between Thales and Votiro will allow government agencies to continue to focus on innovation—rather than security breaches.
