Contract Win


Shearwater Group plc, the organisational resilience group, announces that its group company, GeoLang, has won a new three-year contract worth circa £0.2 million in aggregate with a leading global medical and research development organisation, specialising in oncology and DNA / RNA sequencing.


Under the terms of the contract GeoLang will provide the organisation with Cloud Data Loss Prevention ("DLP") as well as Data Discovery and extraction solutions that cross the boundaries between Office 365, Box and Confluence.


While there are many tools on the market that offer network DLP, these tools will often have gaps in the cloud solutions that they protect with no true endpoint visibility. GeoLang is able to provide agile development capabilities, connecting the dots that extend its Ascema DLP and Data Discovery platform to offer real time discovery and protection of sensitive data and IP across legacy and disparate enterprise systems.


Phil Higgins, Chief Executive Officer of Shearwater, commented:


"This is a great contract win for GeoLang. To be partnering with a prestigious organisation specialising in highly regulated and complex fields including human genomics, cancer research and microbiology, is a great reflection of the capability of GeoLang's patented software in mitigating risk and the loss of invaluable data and information.


"It is also pleasing to see the benefit of the investments made in developing GeoLang's proprietary software suite gaining traction as the business begins to scale."
