Software is about scale. Partnering up with a big technology provider like Microsoft is archTIS’ masterplan to reach thousands of customers.

Secured access, sharing and collaboration provider archTIS has continued its powerplay with Microsoft by announcing  NC Protect has become accessible to Microsoft Azure   customers starting this week.

The Azure platform boasts a hefty 95% of the Fortune 500 as customers, and around 70% of organisations worldwide. The pandemic has seen adoption of cloud services and remote collaboration explode, which in turn has led to demand for securing that collaboration on unstructured data (like Microsoft Office files, chat files etc.).

With NC Protect now available on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace and Azure Government Marketplace, archTIS is now providing an easy-to-use and deploy service to meet this demand.

The software leverages Microsoft security investments to protect sensitive and classified information against data loss and insider threats, by using highly granular attribute-based access control (ABAC) and protection policies to secure content at rest and in motion.

The combination of Microsoft Information Protection (MIP) sensitive labels with NC Protect’s dynamic ABAC policies is utilised to control access, usage and sharing of files, chats and messages. This allows customers to benefit from expanded protection and control over the collaboration of sensitive and classified information.

NC Protect’s easy to configure policies are scalable to support data security and compliance requirements across Microsoft 365 apps, including Teams, SharePoint, Exchange, OneDrive and Office 365.

“We are excited to launch our second certified app in the Azure Marketplace and Azure Government Marketplace based on strong customer demand to offer our solutions there,” said archTIS US President, Kurt Mueffelmann.

“This allows our customers to more easily procure and use Azure credits to purchase and deploy NC Protect, gaining access to the platform’s unique ABAC-powered data protection capabilities that leverage and enhance every customers’ existing Microsoft investments more easily.”

The move drives potential pipeline opportunities for archTIS and new acquisition avenues for clients, following recent collaborations with defence and security organisations Thales and Raytheon.
