Austin, Texas – November 6, 2019 – Blancco Technology Group (LON: BLTG), the industry standard in data erasure and mobile device diagnostics, announced it has signed a new channel partner agreement with SHI International Corp., a global IT solutions provider for Corporate, Enterprise, Public Sector and Academic customers. Furthermore, SHI selected Blancco’s software and hardware solutions to feature at its Customer Innovation Center (CIC), an 8,000-square-foot testing facility located at SHI’s global headquarters in Somerset, NJ. The CIC enables SHI clients to view and test cutting-edge IT solutions and emerging technologies. The relationship is launching in the U.S. first with plans to expand to other regions in the future.
“We are excited to partner with Blancco and showcase its powerful technology in our CIC,” said Sandy DeVico, SHI Director of Software Emerging & Cloud Partners. “Blancco has a unique value proposition for the enterprise segment in secure data erasure and also offers a robust channel program. Our partnership extends SHI’s offerings in security and data lifecycle management and allows us to provide our large enterprise customers a scalable erasure solution.”
Blancco’s Erasure-as-a-Service offering enables channel partners, including distributors, VARs, MSPs and MSSPs, to add secure, auditable data erasure to their product suites. With the increasing scrutiny around data privacy in light of the GDPR, along with upcoming legislation in the U.S., such as the California Consumer Privacy Act, enterprises are coming to grips with new legislation requirements and tightening company policies related to data privacy and security.
“As one of North America’s largest IT solutions providers supporting the enterprise market, SHI is an ideal partner for Blancco,” said Christina Walker, global director of channel sales and programs at Blancco. “With their focus on the cloud, security, data center infrastructure, and mobile devices, the addition of our secure erasure solution is another value added service SHI can offer their customers. Together, Blancco and SHI can empower enterprises to meet compliance mandates, data privacy laws and regulations, and meet the challenges posed by the ever-changing cybersecurity threat landscape.”
Blancco’s growing list of strategically aligned partners includes Ingram Micro, Fujitsu, and Techchef, along with more than 100 active regional partners, such as H3 Secure, Bayside Solutions, and Softchoice.
