Colt Technology Solutions’ PrizmNet extranet solution, a financial services utility that helps connect providers of financial content to capital markets firms – has welcomed nscglobal and Covata to its comprehensive network of users, according to a Colt statement.
Colt PrizmNet allows Capital Markets firms to integrate with new markets and clients in a more streamlined fashion, via its sovereign private network that focuses on content delivery – the new additions will also garner access to the Safe Share secure file-sharing solution. Safe Share enables capital markets participants to share all manner of information over Colt PrizmNet, namely sensitive company data – nscglobal and Covata join a global list of users that rely on the solution for their business.
According to Jean-Marc Jefferson, Operations Director at nscglobal, in a recent statement on the integration: “Safe Share helps customers meet their statutory obligations and regulatory requirements by ensuring that stored data is always encrypted, and that the encryption keys and algorithms are protected. This secured data solution will enable financial institutions to meet rigorous levels of corporate governance, access monitoring and compliance.”

Earlier this month, Colt tapped Carl Grivner as its newest Chief Executive Officer (CEO), whose tenure will take effect only at the start of the New Year on January 1, 2016. Mr. Grivner had originally joined Colt back in May 2015 and currently serves as its Executive Vice President of Network Services. His ascension was necessitated by the recent announcement of Colt’s CEO, Rakesh Bhasin, that he would be relinquishing the role after nine years as of December 31, 2015
