Calligo is a unique service provider with a global track record of improving clients’ productivity and profitability by making their data more available, secure and safe. We know that our clients – and frankly all businesses – are keen to use their data more competitively and innovatively, but also in the knowledge that they are doing so safely.

“Calligo and Reed Smith have worked together for many years, and over that time, we have grown to understand each other’s approaches and the impact each has on its clients. It is clear that Reed Smith shares in our philosophy that data should be continuously secure and safe to use, but most of all that these measures should never encumber data’s availability or potential. This partnership is designed to deliver exactly that – total data protection from policies and processes to its practical, secure, innovative use.”
