Valarian: Innovating for the new era of digital sovereignty

We’re on a mission to help enterprises ensure their communication tools are secure, compliant and efficient.
As countries and industries introduce new data sovereignty and privacy regulations, it’s become harder for global enterprises to ensure their communication data remains compliant across all geographies.

Valarian’s software allows multinational organisations to make the communication tools they already use compliant with data sovereignty, protection and privacy laws across jurisdictions worldwide. Valarian’s resilient, scalable platform can be deployed into any environment (on-prem, cloud, or hybrid) and easily integrates with existing business collaboration tools like Microsoft Teams and WhatsApp, harmonising compliance, security and efficiency.
