Blue Turtle reinforces  Information Protection and Control by joining forces with Secure Islands

Secure Islands Extends Partner Program to Offer Advanced Information Protection and Control Solution in Southern Africa with Blue Turtle partnership


Secure Islands, the leading provider of advanced Information Protection and Control (IPC) solutions, today announced that it has signed a partnership agreement with Blue Turtle Technologies, a leading technology management company based in South Africa. The partnership enhances Blue Turtle’s  data protection offering, allowing it to include next-generation DLP, Data Classification, and IRM solutions into its portfolio of data security services. 

Blue Turtle, as Secure Islands reseller in Southern Africa, features Secure Islands’ IQProtector™, a persistent, active Data Immunization technology, which offers a unique paradigm that is fundamentally different from other existing solutions: automated, policy-driven classification and protection at the very beginning of the information life cycle. In addition to enhanced data protection, IQProtector intelligently allows organizations to map their information assets to understand where information is created, analyzes and classifies the data by multiple configurable criteria including content and context (i.e. usage, data type, source, user etc.). 

“As organisations increasingly turn to the cloud, they now have the opportunity to streamline their entire data management approach with Secure Islands IPC platform,” said Justin Arnoldi, Application & Data Manger at Blue Turtle.  “The ability to classify and protect data upon creation ensures data integrity without having to tighly control the flow of data.  It’s a brilliant approach to securing data that will deliver our clients unprecendented peace of mind. We are excited to have Secure Islands as a partner and look forward to introducing their high standards for information protection.”

"We are happy to expand our reach in South Africa with a strong partner like Blue Turtle,” said Guri Geva, VP Sales EMEA for Secure Islands. “Leading organizations across the globe already embrace our data immunization technology that makes for true, persistent classification controlled encryption management. Coupled with Blue Turtle’s application expertise we bring our customers a clear added value.”

Blue Turtle Technologies, a leading security solutions provider and Darktrace, the leader in Enterprise  Immune System Technology, have announced a strategic partnership to deliver Darktrace’s award winning cyber defense technology to the South African market.

Acknowledged for its expertise in providing best-in-class technology management solutions.  Blue Turtle offers carefully selected world-leading products to enhance the performance and efficiency of its customers’ digital environment. Partnering with Darktrace allows it to strengthen its cyber security defense platform and deliver the self-learning Enterprise Immune System to its customers, enabling them to detect advanced cyber threats that pass undetected through traditional perimeter defense solutions.

Darktrace’s innovative technology is based on unsupervised machine learning and mathematics developed at the University of Cambridge. The Enterprise Immune System monitors large volumes of data within networks on a 24/7 basis and ‘learns’ the pattern of life for every device, individual user and network. In achieving this understanding of an organisation’s ‘self’, Darktrace can spot new, emerging behaviors that fall outside this pattern of normality. Users benefit from an unparalleled visibility of their network, are able to address any rising issues early and take proactive measures to mitigate the risk.

“As disruptive cyber-attacks are becoming more effective at breaching security defenses, our partnership with Darktrace can provide great benefits to the Southern Africa market. Darktrace’s immune-system approach assists large organizations and government bodies in detecting behavioral anomalies in real time, allowing organizations to take timely action,” said Ronnie Koch, Infrastructure Security Architect, at Blue Turtle. “By detecting them earlier, they are able to protect themselves against advanced attacks and data compromises from within the network.”

“We are delighted to be working with Blue Turtle and extend the Enterprise Immune System to South African market,” said Nick Trim, Managing Director EMEA, at Darktrace. “Darktrace’s self-learning technology and unique approach to tackling sophisticated cyber threats helps organizations build resilient defense strategies and protect their reputation in an increasingly complex threat landscape.”

Simple Application Deployment for Windows 10

Windows 10 is bringing new capabilities to the enterprise and organizations are looking for ways to simplify the move to Windows 10 for both end users and administrators. The old way of migrating to a new OS was a major project that consumed IT resources, frustrated many end users, and was often forced by the end of life of the old OS (remember Windows XP?).

By leveraging an enterprise app store organizations can deploy the new OS and empower users with self-service that enables them to choose when they upgrade their systems. Learn how App Portal can be used to upgrade or migrate users’ computers and applications and provide a better user experience.

Blue Turtle invites you to Join Jason Snook, Product Manager at Flexera Software, as he explains how enterprise customers have been using App Portal to deploy the new OS, what challenges they have overcome, and the benefits they have realized.
