Data Security As A Service

ALTR VP of Products and Marketing Doug Wick joins State of Identity to share how high-frequency options trading led to the founding of ALTR, why smart database drivers are the only logical place to implement encryption, and what use cases are unlocked by placing data security at the application layer.


Doug Wick, VP of Product and Marketing at ALTR, is interviewed about his personal background and the product of which he is Vice President of. Realizing the lack of security in their past jobs, like Dash the financial company, the founders of ALTR launched the company with excitement for the future and for the innovative security they had to offer. Through use of blockchain, ALTR has managed to become technologically empowered. Due to blockchain being directly integrated, it is able to provide data security and privacy by design.
