New EMEA Distribution Alliance Addresses Growing Need for EU Organisations to Securely Erase Data
Atlanta, GA and London, UK, June 18, 2018 – Blancco Technology Group (LON: BLTG), the de facto standard in data erasure and mobile device diagnostics, has signed an EMEA-wide distribution agreement with global technology provider Arrow Electronics. The collaboration builds upon the existing relationship between Blancco and Arrow Electronics in EMEA. As a result of the new distribution agreement, channel customers of Arrow will be equipped to provide their end users with complete data sanitization from a single platform, including a digitally signed, tamper-proof certificate to verify sensitive data has been permanently erased and cannot be recovered.
The strategic alignment is well-timed given the growing recognition of the importance of secure data erasure in preventing unnecessary data loss, ensuring regulatory compliance and minimising exposure to risk. With Blancco’s secure data erasure suite, Arrow’s channel customers can incorporate a value-add solution to their security portfolios that enhances end-of-life data management and provides a verifiable audit trail to comply with the growing number of data protection regulations and standards, including PCI-DSS, HIPAA, GBLA, EU GDPR, ISO 27001 and NIST 800-53.
“Blancco’s collaboration with Arrow marks a significant success for our EMEA channel business,” said Alan Bentley, President of Global Sales, Blancco Technology Group, “We’re excited to help Arrow build upon their vision to bring exceptional technology solutions and specialised services to the European market.”
“With tougher European laws and regulations such as the EU GDPR and its ‘Right to be Forgotten’ we envisage that Blancco’s secure data erasure solutions will play a key role for Arrow in creating a secure end-to-end data management portfolio for its customers”, added Alan Bentley.
