Alkira, RestorePoint.AI Team Up to Secure Cloud Data Platform for Analytics, AI

Mid-sized companies often possess a wealth of data scattered across various departments and platforms. These "siloed" data sources hold valuable insights, but their isolation hinders their ability to drive business value. To unlock this potential, a strategic approach is needed.

The key lies in data unification and categorization. This involves creating a central repository that integrates data from on-premise systems like CRM software and cloud-based applications, such as marketing automation tools. By unifying these sources, companies can create a holistic view of their operations and customer interactions.

Unification alone isn't typically enough, though. Data must be categorized according to relevant attributes. This allows for efficient analysis and retrieval.

Here's the balancing act: Namely, ensuring data security and privacy remain paramount. Strict policies and access controls must be implemented to prevent breaches and unauthorized access. Additionally, compliance with data privacy regulations (like GDPR or CCPA) needs to be addressed to avoid hefty fines and reputational damage.

By tackling these challenges, mid-sized companies can turn their data silos into a powerful asset. And a joint Alkira and RestorePoint.AI solution enables customers to address these challenges by offering a turn-key data management service running on a secure multi-cloud networking platform that supports granular access controls and micro segmentation.

Alkira unifies multiple clouds, sites and users via an enterprise network built entirely in the cloud. The network is managed using the same controls, policies and security network admins know, can instantly scale as needed and is available as a service. There is no new hardware to deploy, no software to download, and no cloud architecture to learn.

RestorePoint.AI is a secure managed data as a service company that allows customers to take advantage of new analytics and AI driven technologies and extract business intelligence from their data regardless of where it resides, while meeting security and governance requirements.

The partnership between the two is expected to deliver a cloud-based data management service that improves time to value and total cost of ownership for companies that lack the resources to build their own analytics and generative AI integrations, so they can better compete in today's data-driven economy.

"Enforcing data security and privacy controls over distributed analytics and AI applications deployed in hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environments poses significant challenges for mid-market organizations with limited resources and expertise," said Abdul Altamimi, Chief Technology Officer at RestorePoint.AI. "This partnership with Alkira allows us to provide our customers with the policy-based access control and micro segmentation capabilities to securely scale their businesses in the cloud."

The Alkira-RestorePoint.AI solution allows companies to leverage analytics and AI tools on their data, wherever it's stored. The system prioritizes security and governance compliance. It's designed for organizations with significant data volumes needing frequent syncing, especially those in regulated industries like finance, healthcare and pharmaceuticals.

“Today, organizations that are able to leverage and operationalize their data quickly, securely and compliantly are creating a gap in the market that typically favors larger enterprises,” said Amir Khan, CEO at Alkira. “Our partnership with RestorePoint.AI is leveling the playing field and helping more enterprises take on new and exciting challenges that have the potential to transform their industries.”
