Ensuring growth, confidence, and security in the digital economy

Our story

comforte was founded in 1998 by the creators of a connectivity solution for mission-critical systems. A logical next step for comforte was to not only connect systems, but to also make sure that communication is always done in a secure fashion. Organizations around the globe are running their ATM and Point-of-Sale networks securely thanks to comforte.

As our experience with securing data in motion increased, we decided to extend our technology to securing data at rest as well. Finally, after deploying our solutions at many organizations worldwide over the years, we took our portfolio one step further and created a data security platform that seamlessly integrates into the most modern cloud native environments as well as traditional core systems.

Building on more than 20 years of experience in unlocking more value from systems that never stop, comforte has evolved into a market leader for data security and cloud native tokenization. We now proudly serve over 500 enterprise customers across the globe.
