SANTA CLARA, CA and CUPERTINO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/29/12 -- Persistent Systems (BOMBAY: PERSISTENT) (NSE: PERSISTENT), the global leader in software product and technology services, and Voltage Security®, the world leader in data-centric encryption and key management, today announced an innovative arrangement that greatly accelerates the process through which 1,000 enterprise users of Voltage SecureData data protection solution will receive product releases and patches. Working with Persistent Systems' expert engineering team, Voltage can now deliver solution upgrades within 18 hours, while many competitive options still take up to a week. There's also a faster time to market for new features and security alerts, the ability to work across 13 operating systems and elimination of the potential for human error.
"In the security field, we don't have the luxury of time -- our customers expect fast release cycles and security alerts, and they should," said John Weald, vice president, Engineering at Voltage. "Persistent Systems understood our 'Agile Scrum' environment and was able to help accelerate the release process without compromising quality. Reducing the turnaround time from days to hours gives our customers a huge strategic advantage, and further demonstrates Voltage Security's commitment to both innovation and customer support."
Voltage Security provides data-centric encryption solutions to some of the largest companies in the world across a wide variety of industries, including payment systems, financial services, insurance, healthcare and e-commerce. When the company moved to Agile Scrum development, the specific goal was to provide releases simultaneously across all platforms the company supports. Voltage turned to Persistent Systems to help ensure that Voltage SecureData would run across multiple versions of Microsoft Windows, Sun Solaris, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, AIX, HP-UX and others.
"Persistent Systems has a world-class team of engineering experts in development, porting and QA, and we're privileged to be working with Voltage Security in speeding the time to market for this critical product line," said Nitin Kulkarni, executive director and COO, Persistent Systems Ltd. "Our joint efforts ensure that enterprise customers around the world are more secure, the call on help desks is reduced and Voltage Security can respond faster to new business opportunities."
