The collaboration will provides access to Safe Share, a secure file sharing system, enabling capital markets participants to securely share data over Colt PrizmNet.

Safe Share pertains to offer three levels of security- identity management, policy and key management, aiming to provide Colt capital markets customers with a data security solution. According to Covata’s chief executive officer and founder, Trent Telford, it's the firm’s background in government and defence that gives it an understanding of the security needs for capital markets. “Leveraging Colt PrizmNet for multiple services across front, middle and back office allows our customers to benefit from real economies of scale, whilst not compromising on security or service,” says Hugh Cumberland, solution manager at Colt. ©2015 funds europe
