Comforte AG was a pioneer in data-centric security methods such as tokenization. As a matter of fact, the industry-accepted tokenization standard—ANSI X9.119-2—is the first security standard for this method and is one which comforte helped to develop.

Brief Overview

Comforte AG has been providing security solutions for mission critical systems since 1998 with a strong presence in the payments industry and its high-availability and scalability requirements. The comforte AG Enterprise Data Security platform has a significantly large customer base of well-known companies. The platform is poised for continued growth because of the exploding number of companies with board-mandated, or government-regulated, requirements to support and maintain an effective data security program that also incorporates data discovery and data protection

The comforte AG data protection suite is a scalable and fault-tolerant enterprise tokenization, encryption, data discovery & classification and cloud protection platform enabling robust protection of sensitive data with minimal effort and with little to no impact on existing applications. It helps organizations achieve end-to-end data protection, lower compliance costs, and a significantly reduced impact of and liability for data breaches in one integrated platform.

Ongoing trends indicate that enterprises now require more integrated data security platforms tying together many functions and capabilities working effortlessly together. That’s why we’ve positioned ourselves ahead of that trend by engineering a data security platform which is holistic and guards data throughout its lifecycle.

For instance, Gartner has reported “complexity is encouraging vendors to rapidly amalgamate disparate data security capabilities into data security platforms. Organizations applying these newer platforms are securing their data better and more easily.” Comforte AG’s own data security solution has grown into an evolving data security platform, and this is in line with trends we see across the entire data security market.
