Q2 Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:QTWO), a leading provider of digital transformation solutions for banking and lending, and ALTR, innovator of complete data control and protection solutions, today announced the long-term extension and expansion of their strategic technology partnership through 2026 to deliver unrivaled data governance and security to Q2 customers.
With the increasing importance of controlling and protecting sensitive data, the accelerating regulatory environment, and the renewed focus on data privacy, especially in the financial services industry, ALTR’s unique combination of data governance and security capabilities make the company a crucial innovation partner for Q2 moving forward, delivering inimitable benefit to end customers and support for data security initiatives throughout Q2’s ecosystem.
“As part of our mission, Q2 continues to drive digital banking forward by employing the industry’s most innovative technologies and offering the most effective solutions to help strengthen community financial institutions,” said Lou Senko, Chief Availability Officer of Q2. “We quickly recognized that ALTR’s more than 35 patented technologies and industry-leading approach to combining data governance with security would be key to delivering enterprise-class data protection to our customers. After working together for three years and seeing the substantial, differentiating value created by embedding ALTR-exclusive capabilities into our platform, we’re thrilled to extend the partnership.”
Q2 TrustView™ powered by ALTR, provides an enhancement to Q2’s multilayered data management and protection approach that controls how individuals access data, delivers detailed data intelligence and reporting, and protects critical, regulated financial data assets. ALTR’s enhanced data consumption visibility, automated, policy-based access control, and powerful data protection functionality are the foundation for Q2 TrustView™, allowing Q2 customers to safeguard critical user data, avoid the pitfalls of manual data management, and provide the level of cybersecurity that their account holders expect.
“The expansion of our alliance with Q2, a leader in the highly-regulated financial industry, is potent validation of ALTR’s approach to solving the data governance and security problem,” said Dave Sikora, CEO at ALTR. “Knowing, controlling, and protecting data are all critical to meeting regulatory requirements around data privacy and financial data security. Only ALTR offers the complete solution to keep that data secure."
The relationship originated in 2018 when Q2 partnered with ALTR to help achieve PCI compliance for its Biller Direct application. By working closely with ALTR, Q2 implemented ALTR’s solution to secure and control its sensitive user and business data in the cloud to become Level 1 PCI DSS certified in just 30 days. Q2 has continued to expand its use of ALTR throughout its application portfolio, including its market-leading online/mobile banking platform, and enterprise cloud data warehouse projects with Snowflake. This agreement extends the partnership for five years through 2026.
