The six-year-old company curates a platform that helps companies protect sensitive data, such as regulated content and intellectual property, even as it is shared inside and outside of an organization, Technical.ly DC previously reported. The tech company’s Virtru Developer Hub is a one-stop shop equipped with tools for developers to manage data protection and policy enforcement across disparate systems and multi-cloud environments, the press release states.
“Companies of all sizes are increasingly faced with skyrocketing data volumes while attempting to manage tens or even hundreds of custom-built applications. Complicating this, IT security teams have poor visibility over where data is flowing, creating the possibility of data theft or misuse,” John Ackerly, CEO of Virtru, said in a press release. “Through our new Developer Hub, developers can take advantage of the Virtru Data Protection Platform and proven, Zero Trust architecture to maintain control of their data wherever it is created or shared.”
The company said the new hub allows developers to apply data protection across any platform, device, environment or application. Developers can also build privacy-focused apps within the Virtru Developer Hub. The flexible architecture of the hub allows users to add data protection needs to the client-side or server-side workflows.
