Atos has announced that it has been identified as a ‘Leader’ by global research and advisory firm NelsonHall in its latest Vendor Evaluation & Assessment Tool (NEAT) for General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Services.
According to the report, Atos’ GDPR offering covers data protection impact assessments, governance and business process update, cybersecurity, data protection implementation and control, as well as data breach notification. The report cites Atos’ key strengths as strong encryption, IAM and incident response services, partnerships and strong investments in upcoming security technologies and regulations.
The NelsonHall NEAT vendor evaluation study assesses 9 of the most significant service providers that deliver GDPR services against their ‘ability to deliver immediate benefit’ and their ‘ability to meet future requirements’. Atos was positioned as a Leader in both capacities for four categories: Consulting Focus, Implementation Focus, Ongoing Management Focus and Overall.
