Kiteworks boasts advanced security features like AI-enabled anomaly detection and integrated capabilities such as CDR, DLP, and ATP. This hardened virtual appliance will now be available to Maytech customers, along with dedicated 24/7 support operations.

Similarly, Maytech CEO, John Lynch, commented, “Joining forces with the leader in secure content communications represents a tremendous opportunity for Maytech to reinforce our commitment to customers.
