PLANO, Texas and ESCH-SUR-ALZETTE, Luxembourg, May 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Hotshot Technologies, a fast-growing startup providing secure, compliant mobile-first messaging, collaboration and identity management for businesses, today announced the expansion of its senior management team and key achievements driving demand for its solutions.
Hotshot launched in late 2018 with an easy-to-deploy app and patent-pending location-and-time-based encryption technology enabling businesses to easily and affordably address the combination of complex security, compliance and labor laws across the globe, including GDPR, CCPA, HIPAA, SEC, ITAR, EU's 'right to be forgotten', evolving 'right to disconnect' regional laws and more.

Hotshot founder and CEO Aaron Turner commented on Hotshot's recent successes, "Demand for the Hotshot solution, including new customer wins we'll announce later this year, and industry awards have increased awareness of our capabilities and fueled our expansion. Our work in 2018 put us on the map. In 2019 we are proud to be a recognized cybersecurity and compliance leader."
