About Very Good Security

Very Good Security Named in the 2022 Gartner® Cool Vendors™ in Data Security

A New Paradigm for Data Security

VGS eliminates the need for customers to hold sensitive data by decoupling and insulating customer systems and applications from sensitive data. Data collected via VGS is segmented, aliased, and stored in secure vaults until needed. For customers, this removes much of their data liability while drastically reducing their risk exposure and compliance responsibility. Additionally, with VGS, customers can manage how third parties interact with sensitive customer data without worrying about data breaches. This makes compliances like PCI fast and easy. VGS simplifies what was once an almost insurmountable problem: how to enable data security while accelerating business growth.

How we started

Why We Started VGS

As both customers and auditors began referring us to more and more companies, we began looking for ways to scale the business while also improving their security method. Was there a way to secure the data, take it out of scope of liability, and still allow it to be used and exchanged? There was. Their solution became Very Good Security, a new type of data security company with a revolutionary way for companies to secure data.
