Anges Québec, a network of more than 200 investors enabling its members to make profitable investments, just announced a first round of financing with SE.
“Secure Exchanges’ technology solves a major security problem for organizations while minimizing the impact on its users’ workload, which is greatly innovative. The upcoming European law on cybersecurity, which should come into effect in May, makes this a relevant news topic”, adds Patrick d’Astous, PhD and lead investor.
Finally, a control on personal information ... in Europe
On May 25, 2018, Europe will adopt the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which aims to strengthen the protection of individuals' personal information. Although this regulation concerns members of the European Union, any company that does business with one of these countries is concerned. Therefore, any Canadian company dealing with one of the EU countries will have to comply with the GDPR. Secure Exchanges solves the problem of exchanging sensitive information related to this law.
More than 360 billion emails exchanged each day
With the increase of data theft, we are proud that Secure Exchanges’ technology is perceived as a must to protect e-mail exchanges.
We also think of the insurance, law and accounting sectors, which are particularly affected by the exchange of highly confidential messages. And during the current tax period where personal information is quite out there, this announcement comes in handy.
This funding will enable us to accelerate the commercialization of our technology with these mid-size and large companies.
Also in our sights: banking
This funding will help us to complete the proof of concept already begun with certain financial institutions, and to continue the ongoing development of our product.
