TORONTO, Aug. 16, 2021 /CNW/ - Prodigy Ventures Inc. (TSXV: PGV) ("Prodigy" or the "Company") today announced an agreement between its wholly-owned subsidiary, IDVerifact Inc. and Datex, to integrate Datex' patented breakthrough cybersecurity solution, DataStealth, to the IDVerifact Inc. platform.
"At IDVerifact, our goal is to produce the most comprehensive platform of digital identity and trusted digital asset solutions for our enterprise clients," says George Colwell, SVP Digital Practices at IDVerifact, "The protection of client data, whether personally identifiable information or payment card information during any process is key to ensuring that our clients cannot only collect the sensitive data they need to support business processes related to onboarding and risk evaluation but also that they can store and manage that sensitive data securely and in compliance with existing and yet to be defined regulations. Our partnership with Datex provides the IDVerifact platform with DataStealth, a powerful tool in preventing data breaches by preventing unauthorized users and intruders from accessing and stealing sensitive data. The best part is that DataStealth can provide this level of protection without the need for any of our software to be rewritten or modified, and without the need to make any changes to existing user interaction or business processes. We are very excited to add DataStealth to the IDVerifact platform."
As breaches become more common and compliance regulations become more rigorous, organizations are facing increased pressure around privacy and data security. While simple to deploy, the innovative and robust DataStealth solution alleviates these pressures by securing sensitive information from within an organization's IT environment, eliminating the impact caused by data breaches.
"For organizations dealing with strict privacy, compliance, residency and regulatory requirements, DataStealth has proven to be an extremely innovative, powerful, flexible and scalable solution that is both quick and inexpensive to deploy. IDVerifact, delivering a complete suite of digital identity solutions, is the perfect partner for Datex as we are completely aligned in our thinking when it comes to securing sensitive data and documents," says Ed Leavens, CEO of Datex. "We are delighted to have DataStealth integrated into the already powerful IDVerifact platform."
