As a result of the combination of these two global leaders in digital security, Thales eSecurity and Gemalto’s Enterprise & Cybersecurity business are joining together as Thales Cloud Protection & Licensing, creating the world leader in cloud, data and software protection. It’s quite clear that businesses depend increasingly on the cloud, data and software in order to make decisive decisions. That’s why the most respected brands and largest organizations in the world trust Thales to help them protect and secure access to their most sensitive information and software wherever it is created, shared or stored – from the cloud and data centers to devices and across networks. For Gemalto and Thales, the similarities across our cultures begin with our passion for technology, products and technical challenges, and our desire to accelerate innovation. With a focus on customers and shared values of excellence, collaboration, growth and accountability, we will create solutions that make tomorrow possible, today.

As organizations continue their digital transformations, we have the unique capability to provide solutions at every juncture in a world powered by the cloud, data and software. Together, our data protection solutions – encryption and access management – help organizations secure the entire data lifecycle by encrypting data and securing access to data – from the time it is created, stored, shared or sent across network and always with a clear eye on mandated compliance requirements such as PCI, HIPAA, and GDPR. For organizations that are building their businesses on software, our software monetization solutions help generate new revenue streams, improve operational efficiency, to increase customer satisfaction and gain valuable business insights. With continued effort and dedication, I am confident our company will remain at the forefront of digital security, the cloud and software enabled services.
