See how ALTR’s programmable data security is embedded into Q2ebanking’s Q2 Trustview in order to monitor, govern, and secure FI’s sensitive data in real time.
Monitor: Provides shared visibility and an immutable view of data access
Govern: Delivers real time control and breach intervention
Protect: Delivers impenetrable protection of data at rest
Why it’s great ALTR is a simpler and more effective way to protect sensitive data that works on any infrastructure from on-prem to cloud.

RAccount holders should be able to trust their bank or credit union to protect their valuable financial data. However, the human presence within complex networks inherently creates privacy and governance vulnerabilities, particularly in the visibility, control, and protection over how, when, and where data is made available to the people who use it every day.
Though modern cybersecurity is inherently multi-layered, the deepest layer must include modern data security governance that protects against privileged access and human error.
Watch on-demand to hear Lou Senko, CIO of Q2, and Doug Wick, VP of Product and Marketing for ALTR, explore how a large, publicly traded financial experience (FinX) company is using innovative solutions to provide the ultimate failsafe to its customers, as well as:
• Best practices for keeping sensitive financial data safe • How to gain transparent visibility and control over your data • How blockchain technology can support the restoration of digital trust.
Hot on the heels of its Finovate debut earlier this month, blockchain-based data security platform ALTR has teamed up with digital banking solutions provider Q2 to unveil a new solution to improve data security.
The new technology, Q2 TrustView, powered by ALTR, adds to Q2’s approach to data management and protection by mitigating security breaches in real time. The solution protects critical data by fragmenting personally identifiable information (PII) across a private, low-latency blockchain, and makes data-at-rest unusable to unauthorized parties. Q2 TrustView powered by ALTR also gives authorized users a comprehensive insight into who accesses sensitive information, as well as data on when and how frequently that data is accessed.
“Great financial experiences are built on a foundational confidence and trust that an account holder’s data will be protected,” Q2 CTO Adam Blue said. “With Q2 TrustView, we are strengthening our data management approach to ensure that protections are in place for our customers and their users at every step of the data journey.”
ALTR CEO Dave Sikora praised Q2’s leadership in a “highly-regulated industry,” and said it was a “powerful validation of the confidence (that) banking and lending institutions” have in his company’s technology. He added, “Data is critical to these institutions, and the integration of ALTR’s smart driver and blockchain technologies into Q2 TrustView reinforces Q2’s approach to data security, privacy, and governance by implementing a critical human error countermeasure.”
Founded in 2004, Q2 demonstrated its Biller Direct solution at FinovateSpring 2018. Biller Direct enables consumers to aggregate their bills and pay them via credit or debit card. The solution both improves the billpay experience for consumers and gives financial institutions the opportunity to earn interchange revenue in the process.
We highlighted Q2 earlier this year in our look at how banks can compete with the new credit card from Apple. The company closed out 2018 with the acquisition of fellow Finovate alum, Gro Solutions.
Making its Finovate debut less than a month ago at FinovateSpring, Austin, Texas-based ALTR was founded in 2014 to help businesses leverage blockchain technology to change the way data is monitored, accessed, and stored. The company announced in April that its technology had earned Level 1 Service Provider accreditation for the latest version of the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard). In February, ALTR partnered with IT solutions integrator Sirius Computer Solutions to provide its blockchain-based data security as a managed service.
Named one of Built in Austin’s 50 Startups to Watch in 2019, ALTR has raised $15 million in funding.
