Farnborough, February 18, 2014 – Boldon James, a leading provider of Data Classification and secure messaging solutions, today announced it has appointed HANDD Business Solutions as an Elite Partner to supply the market with Boldon James’ Data Classification technology; Classifier. With this newly-formed partnership, HANDD customers will have access to more data security solutions and Boldon James can further deepen its market penetration.
Boldon James selected HANDD due to their wide market reach and extensive knowledge of data security solutions. HANDD’s customers come from all sectors and will now have easy access to Boldon James’ Classifier, which delivers Data Classification in order to reduce the risk of valued or sensitive information ending up in the wrong hands.
As more and more data is created by businesses, Data Classification technology is becoming integral to many organisations’ data security strategies. Data Classification empowers user communities who create and handle data to assign value to it, so that informed decisions can be taken about how it is managed, protected and shared. It establishes a ‘safety net’ that can prevent sensitive data from being distributed in error, and can help improve data security across the organisation.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to join forces with HANDD, as they are an important route to market, not only because of their customer base, but because of their experience and knowledge in providing Data Classification solutions,” said Martin Sugden, CEO at Boldon James. “We are working hard to educate the market on why Data Classification is a key part of any Data Loss Prevention strategy and we see HANDD as instrumental in achieving this.”
“Securing businesses from operational risk is a fundamental priority for any management team and it’s clear that retaining optimum standards of data security is essential for businesses,” commented Anthony Hodges, CEO of HANDD Business Solutions. “Data Classification has become an essential cog in the data loss prevention wheel and we see our partnership with Boldon James as an important step towards being the acknowledged leader and preferred partner in helping our clients deliver a robust layered security approach.”
Boldon James is sponsoring the Enterprise Security & Risk Management 2014 event, taking place in March, in association with HANDD, bringing together their extensive expertise in the global data security and governance marketplace.
The partnership between Boldon James and HANDD Business Solutions began in earnest on 1st February 2014.
