BOULDER, Colorado, April 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Covertix, the market leader in data-centric document security for secure internal and external collaboration, today announced their new strategic partnership with Zia Consulting, Inc., the leading provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and Document Capture Solutions. The companies have partnered to create the concept of Universal Content Security embedded within Zia's Adhere and Accelerate solution offerings, securing data based on policy, not platform.
Many organizations have spent the past decade of ECM development and deployment focused on making it easier for employees to either intentionally, or even accidentally, share information with others. As a result, the content security challenges facing most organizations are substantial, with major concerns around the pervasiveness of SharePoint, the broad use of Dropbox and Box.net for external collaboration, and continued reliance on email or even USBs to share information. Universal Content Security helps organizations address these issues.
"For many CIOs, the single biggest concern right now is ensuring they aren't the next company to appear on the front page of a newspaper due to a leak of corporate documents, with their employee and customer data shared around the world by hackers," said Mike Mahon, CEO and Co-Founder of Zia Consulting. "Through our partnership with Covertix, the market leader in content security, we are able to protect data across ECM systems, websites, portals, and cloud sync and share technologies."
Whether companies are sharing content via Dropbox, USBs, email, SharePoint, Alfresco Cloud Sync, or any other technology platform, Universal Content Security will protect the data-even with a copy and paste scenario. With Universal Content Security, policies can be applied automatically when new documents are created or uploaded, with rules set by folder or document type. This works across any use case within or outside the organization, including enterprise documents, external collaboration, and secure mobility.
"What Zia brings to this space is invaluable. Their holistic view, and understanding of the issues that CIOs and CISOs face, makes them a proactive partner and experts in this field," said Liz Lederer, SVP Channel Partners at Covertix. "Partnerships are very important to Covertix and are essential to expanding our reach and depth in the US. Zia Consulting is doing that for us."

Covertix's patented SmartCipher™ solutions enable internal and external parties to share confidential files while significantly reducing overall risk and with a minimal interruption to the organization's workflow.
