conpal GmbH and Cefiros have agreed on a partnership under which the Madrid-based company will act as a value-added distributor (VAD) for conpal in Spain, Portugal and Latin America. Cefiros was founded by long-time experts in the cybersecurity industry and sees itself as a link between customer, integrator and manufacturer.

Ángel Carreras, CEO – Director Comercial of Cefiros: “For Cefiros, this agreement represents a great opportunity to offer the best document encryption solution. In fact, conpal LAN Crypt is the most advanced enterprise solution for client-side encryption of sensitive content. We are confident that conpal’S extensive experience will help us improve the security of our partners’ customers’ data and enable them to meet their compliance requirements.”

Ralf Engers, Managing Partner of conpal GmbH, said, “We are very pleased to partner with Cefiros. We are convinced that their expertise and knowledge of the market will improve the contact with our customers and help us to take advantage of market opportunities. Combined with our product portfolio, we are confident that we will see good results soon.”

An initial focus of the collaboration will be to replace Sophos Safeguard File Encryption among users looking for a technically related, high-performance alternative. Sophos had announced the end-of-life of the encryption solution in July 2023 and recommended conpal LAN Crypt as a replacement. The common technical basis of the two solutions allows existing keys to continue to be used during migration, eliminating the need to decrypt and re-encrypt the file inventory.
