Itouch.io, provider of the Inventa AI-based sustainable data discovery and management platform for privacy, security, and governance, and Corr-Serve, a pan-African distributor of security, performance and governance solutions, today announced a distribution agreement to offer South African enterprises best-in-class solutions for automated data discovery and classification. Corr-Serve is the latest addition to 1touch.io’s growing list of strategic value-added distributor (#VAD) partners.

1touch.io’s Inventa is the first network-based data discovery and classification platform that provides automated, near real-time discovery, mapping and tracking of all sensitive data at enterprise scale. It leverages network analytics, natural language processing and supervised AI to automatically discover and analyse all data usage and lineage within an organisation, no matter where it is located – at rest or in motion, known or unknown, semi-structured, structured or unstructured. This empowers enterprises to comply with CCPA, GDPR, LGPD and all other data privacy regulations quickly, efficiently and inexpensively.

Mark van Vuuren, Product Director at Corr-Serve, commented: “Recent changes in legislation under POPI are placing new demands on IT to identify all personal data within an organisation confidently. Compliance means you need to have made your best effort to achieve full disclosure. Solutions like Inventa from 1touch.io provide an updated approach to be able to meet those demands quickly and effectively across a fluid IT environment. It’s going to significantly reduce the investment required to do this on a legacy, manual basis.”

Commenting on the company’s expanded footprint, Zak Rubinstein, CEO and Co-Founder at 1touch.io, said: “The South African channel will enjoy new sources of sustainable revenues through our partnership with Corr-Serve. We offer a subscription-based solution in the new world of data discovery and data privacy. By adding this to their portfolios, channel partners will be able to extend their current security and IT operations expertise into this fast-growing new space. Corr-Serve has a niche approach dedicated to security, data and governance solutions, and we are confident that their reseller base will benefit strongly from this addition.”

Andy Pugh, Regional Director EMEA at 1touch.io, states: “We’re excited to be working with Corr-Serve and, by adding our capabilities to their existing portfolio, channel partners will be able to extend their current security and IT operations expertise into this fast-growing new space. Corr-Serve has a niche approach dedicated to security, data and governance solutions, and we are confident that their reseller base will benefit strongly from this addition.”

The Corr-Serve security portfolio includes an Open Threat Management Platform from Seceon, network detection and response from ExtraHop, endpoint detection and response from Heimdal Security, and cloud security and compliance from C3M.io. The company also distributes Kiuwan, a static application security testing solution, and senhasegura, a privileged access management solution. Together, the products create a formidable force in security threat detection and management.
