Software firm ALTR has announced a new partnership with IT solutions integrator Sirius that will deliver blockchain-based data governance and security as a managed service.

The deal will see Sirius offer ALTR’s cyber security solutions via its dedicated Security and Risk Management practice, which is designed to help ensure clients invest in the right IT security solutions.

The first software company to bring the benefits of blockchain to the enterprise, ALTR’s high-performance, commercial software platform utilises the unique architecture of blockchain in order to govern and secure data.

ALTR’s portfolio will also now benefit from Sirius’ expertise and experience with industrial-strength managed capabilities, the firm said, which include the company’s proactive, vendor-agnostic threat assessment and advisory services, expert implementation, as well as its comprehensive outsourced technology solutions and infrastructure management.

"Sirius uses best-of-breed solutions and services to help our clients improve their cyber security and optimize their overall IT risk-management strategy to protect their data, intellectual property, and their brand," said Michael Conley, executive vice president of Managed and Cloud Services at Sirius.

"Integrating ALTR's blockchain-based technology solutions into our data-security offerings helps us ensure we continue expanding our security portfolio to best meet each client's needs."

ALTR's solution integrates into the critical flows, leveraging proprietary high-performance private blockchain technology in order to eliminate threats and ensure businesses’ technologies remain safe.

The platform protects data at-rest, governs data access to protect privacy, halts breaches in real time, as well as providing the “digital truth” about data access and provenance, the company said.

"The enormous value of Sirius' unparalleled managed services are a natural fit for ALTR, ensuring that customers are guided through their data security journey with the expertise, support and resources they need to be successful," said ALTR CEO Dave Sikora.

"The combination of ALTR technology and Sirius' outcome-driven approach gives an enterprise the flexibility and competence to meet their most pressing data protection and governance challenges."
