FPG Technologies & Solutions Limited, Nigeria’s foremost IT Company has become a platinum partner to Gemalto, an international digital security company that provides software applications.

Gemalto focuses on two core technologies – digital identification and data protection. These solutions counter the two major targets of cyber attacks, identity theft and unencrypted data. As daily lifestyles become more digital and interaction with online services becomes frequent, there has been an exponential amount of personal data online.

While this creates countless opportunities for service providers, it is threatened by the growing number of data breaches.

Gemalto solutions are used by over 30,000 organisations to verify the identities of people and things, to allow access to services and to protect the growing amount of data these services generate. With 35 research and software development centers and clients in 180 countries, Gemalto brings trust to the world’s digital transformation by giving data owners more control by combining digital identity and data protection across the entire digital service lifecycle.
As a platinum partner FPG receives the benefit of receiving the highest level of engagement, commitment and benefits available to Gemalto partners to encourage leadership in the market place.

‘Gemalto recognises FPG Technologies & Solutions for its ongoing partnership and commitment. I believe combining Gemalto’s industry-leading solutions with FPG’s industry and technology knowledge will drive value for the customer,’’ said Lawrence Elbana, Gemalto’s senior channel manager MEA, enterprise and security.

Rex Mafiana CEO of FPG Technologies & Solutions Limited said; ‘‘protecting our customer’s digital identities and data is a major priority in considering that these are the two major targets of malicious cyber actors. Prevention of data theft is a challenge that faces all sectors of the economy and individuals.

With sensitive data residing everywhere, organisations becoming more mobile, and the breach incidents growing, the need for advanced identity and data protection solutions has become even more critical. Gemalto and FPG solutions cover all verticals and protect the complete digital service lifecycle. Gemalto is also well-known for its hands-on technical support and seamless technology integrations as its solutions are a cohesive technology ecosystem making it easy to integrate Gemalto with complementary vendors.

“The platinum partner status will empower us to serve our customers better with competitive discounts, accelerated time to market, extensive technical support and enable us to engage with customers to adapt their business and security needs to meet the challenges of cloud, mobility, and ever-increasing threats with industry-leading authentication, encryption, and crypto-management solutions and end to end advanced data security solutions,” Mafiana said.
