NATO Selects CloudMask as a Supplier to Help Protect Sensitive Information

CloudMask is honored to be nominated by Canada and approved by NATO’s Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) as one of their trusted vendors to help protect one of their most strategic assets, data.

During NATO’s Information Assurance Symposium (NIAS) Cyber Conference (19 October 2017) in Mons, Belgium, the NATO Deputy Secretary General, Rose Gottemoeller, spoke of the vital importance of cyber defence when she addressed industry experts by saying “Cyber-attacks are serious. They have the potential to undermine NATO’s missions around the world and to hamper our ability to deliver collective defence. That is why cyber defence is a top priority for NATO and for NATO Allies,” said the Deputy Secretary General.  “We have to be just as effective in the cyber domain as we are in the physical world,” added Ms. Gottemoeller.

CloudMask CEO, Dr. Wael Aggan, commented, “Most cybersecurity solutions these days are designed to keep the attackers out, which, history has shown, is not a viable strategy. Then what is the solution in the world where our adversaries are stronger than us?” said CloudMask CEO. “I’m very happy that the NSPA approved the Canadian government’s nomination of CloudMask to be on the list of vendors to help achieve the target stated by Ms. Gottemoeller,” added Dr. Aggan

CloudMask takes a different approach to data protection; by focusing on the data itself, not where it is or who may have access to it. We ensure that data can only be seen by its intended recipients, and nobody in between – not the servers, not the cloud providers, not even your administrator.

CloudMask protects data both within the cloud-based applications and as data moves outside of then via email, messaging, file sharing, and more. Recognized by leading cybersecurity agencies worldwide, CloudMask’s end-to-end protection claims have achieved rigorous Common Criteria certification.
