Digital identity app Yoti has partnered with Galaxkey to improve email encryption and combat scams and phishing.
Galaxkey provides a secure encryption platform for emails and data, enabling users to protect communications and data when it is in transit and at rest. The company allows valuable data to stay on an organization’s infrastructure when it is viewed, lowering the risk of an external attack.
This partnership will enable Yoti’s verified identities into the email and data-sharing ecosystem. This will help verify both the sender and recipient and remove the ambiguity of emails.
The goal of the partnership is to tackle the threat of phishing scams, business email compromise, and other fraudulent attacks.
Galaxkey chairman Sir George Zambellas said, “We’re delighted to be working with digital identity platform Yoti to keep organisations and individuals safe within email and data-sharing ecosystems.
“By harnessing Yoti’s verified digital identities, both email senders and recipients can be confident in the identity of who they’re communicating with. Together, we’re committed to making phishing scams and identity spoofing a thing of the past.”
Earlier in the year, Yoti closed a £8m funding round which valued the business at £82m. The capital was raised to support the growth of its consumer network, invest in product development, and expand its global operations.
