Initial Situation

Highly sensitive business data
Arizona Chemical has over 1,000 employees worldwide and 10 manufacturing plants in the US and Europe, with a sales network covering more than 60 countries. The research and development of their innovative biocompatible products makes the company a prime target for industrial espionage. Their sensitive data has to be carefully protected, while guaranteeing that it can be transmitted fast and effectively at all times.


Protect business data against unauthorized access
Arizona Chemical requires a reliable technology to protect its data and email infrastructure against a constantly increasing number of attacks and online threats. In this context, one of the company’s priorities is to ensure end-to-end encryption of its communications with customers.

Thanks to Retarus, our business data is protected at all times. In addition, their support team is always available to assist us whenever we need them. Retarus provides unique turnkey solutions that work smoothly, just as they should.
