Covata announces latest contract wins in the US, UK and Europe
Sydney, Australia – Covata is pleased to announce the following new contract wins:
- Arthur J. Gallagher & Co (AJG) – a global insurance and risk firm has furthered its partnership with Covata by purchasing the (CipherPoint) Eclipse platform to secure a duplicate environment for a planned migration from SharePoint 2013 to SharePoint 2016. The transaction also includes Eclipse for O365 licenses for migrating from on-premises to the Microsoft Cloud. The total contract is valued at US$76,000 (A$96,900)
- Large global German industrial company – in a customer-confidential deal a US subsidiary of this global power generation, automation and medical diagnosis company has purchased a perpetual licence of Eclipse to replace the end-of-life Cryptzone product with a best-in-market solution. This deal reflects a greater push by the US-based sales team in landing new customers and represents a total contract value of US$82,500 (A$105,000)
- Open Banking UK – Open Banking Ltd has selected Covata’s SafeShare product to secure the monthly reporting by the eight major UK banks to Open Banking. Open Banking was created by the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority and defines and develops the required Application Programme Interfaces (APIs), security and messaging standards that underpin the UK’s retail banking industry. The total contract is valued at £30,000 (A$51,800) with a term of three years. This was a competitive bid won against a major UK competitor and we see this opportunity as a potential beachhead into the financial services market in the UK

Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.

No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?

Cyber resilience will be particularly important as Australian organisations face increased pressure to quickly detect, respond to, and manage the repercussions of breaches in the wake of 2018’s Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme.
