New Context and WANdisco partner to provide Best-in-Class, simplified, secure data governance in global enterprises

New Context’s Lean Security methodology will leverage WANdisco Fusion’s patented active-transactional replication technology for secure, continuous data access

New Context, a product development studio that automates the orchestration, governance and protection of critical infrastructure, today announced its partnership with WANdisco (LSE: WAND) - the market leader in Active Data Replication that enables global enterprises to meet today’s data challenges of secure storage, scalability and availability both on-premises and in the cloud. The two companies will provide best-in-class data governance and availability for organizations that require complete fault-tolerant data exchanges in hybrid environments that support critical applications.

“Data governance is a key component of our Lean Security methodology, and when it comes to big data on-premises and in the cloud, no one does data governance and availability in distributed environments better than WANdisco,” said Daniel Riedel, CEO of New Context. “This partnership allows CIOs and IT teams who are responsible for big data to leverage both the proven capabilities of New Context and the unparalleled technology of WANdisco to build secure, simple data platforms on any cloud and hybrid ecosystem, with complete control over data movement to meet both business and regulatory requirements.”

New Context’s Lean Security methodology applies the “lean” concept that has proved incredibly effective for organizations from manufacturing facilities to startups to securing critical infrastructure and the industrial internet, resulting in a cohesive environment that ensures continued innovation within a secure framework. WANdisco Fusion’s patented active-transactional replication technology delivers always-on availability, performance and scalability across Hadoop clusters and cloud environments any distance apart, enabling the most stringent application service-level agreements to be met, with fine-grained selective replication capabilities that deliver complete control over data movement between locations.

James Campigli, chief operating officer and co-founder of WANdisco added: “Our two companies believe strongly in the core principle of simplicity, which certainly isn’t the first word that comes to mind with big data. Yet, both New Context and WANdisco have created a framework for global organizations to easily operationalize and secure even the most complex big data ecosystem with the highest levels of availability and performance. We look forward to creating additional value for our joint customers with this partnership.”

Herb Kelsey, a longtime veteran of IBM and noted chief architect who recently joined New Context as CTO, concluded: “I know firsthand that data governance and data availability are significant challenges for many organizations, and I’m excited about the opportunity this partnership provides us to implement even better technology solutions for our clients.”


New Context and WANdisco will hold a webinar titled “3 Ways to Get a Handle on Data Governance in Hybrid Cloud Environments” on Thursday, August 25, 2016. Space is limited. Register now at:
