Virtual Vaults Selects tCell for Advanced Attack Defense in Cloud and Data Security


SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — tCell, the leading provider of web application threat defense and monitoring, today announced that Virtual Vaults, a leading virtual data room provider, has selected the tCell Next-Generation Cloud WAF for its advanced attack defense in cloud and data security. tCell allows Virtual Vaults to strengthen the protections around their users’ mission-critical data stored in their cloud platform.

“Security is our starting point for everything we do and everything we produce,” said Gjalt Wijma, security officer for Virtual Vaults. “We selected Microsoft Azure to host our data room because it’s one of the most reliable and secure cloud platforms available. Thus, when we started our search for protecting the application security layer, we needed a vendor that was both optimized for Azure and that could defend against today’s modern OWASP Top 10 attacks.”

In selecting a solution, Virtual Vaults prioritized Account Takeover (ATO) protection because restricting access to authorized users is a core component of their data-room service.

“tCell’s ability to identify and automatically block account takeover attacks coupled with visibility into compromised accounts made their solution a clear choice,” added Wijma. “Our customers trust us with their most confidential information so our ability to immediately identify and shut down attacks before any data is exposed is what we constantly strive for.”

Not only did tCell meet Virtual Vault’s ATO requirements, but its cloud-friendly solution offered a suite of features that best suited Virtual Vaults’ Azure-based platform. As web applications are continuously targeted by hackers, Virtual Vaults takes the extra measure to create a secure architecture for its product.

“Virtual Vault’s innovative platform approach to a virtual data room focused on their customer needs is the pillar of their success. Naturally, their customers need to know if their data is secure from outside threats,” said Michael Feiertag, CEO of tCell. “With sensitive data from M&A, Real Estate and Accountancy transactions from customers all over the world, security is paramount. Virtual Vaults required a trusted security partner and tCell delivered.”

tCell is a gold sponsor at AppSec USA 2018, taking place in San Jose, CA on Oct. 8-10, 2018. Company representatives will be in booth #G5 demoing its Next-Generation Cloud WAF.
