eperi is a leading compliance and cybersecurity software specialist.

Founded in 2003, eperi’s product suite supports today’s essential and highly complex data security, data privacy, and data residency needs, contributing to responsible data management and sustainable business practices. Data protection is a vital issue for wider society, given growing cybersecurity dangers and the high costs of cyberattacks, combined with a shortage of technical skills in the market to counter the threats.

Headquartered in Darmstadt, Germany, eperi has developed a best-in-class proprietary cybersecurity solution, eperi Gateway, which encrypts personal or sensitive data locally before it is transferred to, and stored in, the cloud. Thus, as encryption keys are only held by the end-customer, eperi ensures that data can only be viewed and accessed by the customer, who must also comply with privacy legislation.

Serving hybrid-, public-, and multi-cloud environments, the company has secured an impressive blue chip customer base in a diverse range of sectors including banking and insurance, healthcare, industrials, telecoms, and the public sector, as well as technology, integration, and hosting channel partnerships.
