Gospel Technology is a team of enterprise professionals that are passionate about data. We firmly believe that modern corporations need to put securing their data at the heart of what they do.
It’s part of what we call the new data culture.
Gospel’s philosophy is that individuals and companies should have the right to share and leverage their data with absolute trust and no fear of malicious or accidental exploitation.
Perimeterless architectures are already being pushed by forward-thinking teams who demand to share and utilise all the information available to them. The trouble is they don’t have the right tools to enable them to do it effectively and securely.
We want to help all those organisations trapped by their own processes and the technology they currently have, and who can’t realise the true potential of their data. We want to increase accountability of data and create good business practices where companies and individuals are responsible for their actions because every transaction is recorded.
