Connected Data Expands its European Cloud Presence

Connected Data has announced further expansion across the European market, signing three new strategic channel partners: Blue Profile, NDC and Virtek. The new partners will provide Connected Data's Transporter for Business, private cloud file sync and share (FSS) appliances to their respective network of customers across the UK and Ireland.  
"We carefully select partners with proven capability in taking emerging technologies to market," said Russell Johnson, COO of Connected Data.  "These strategic partnerships continue to show our commitment to delivering private cloud file sync and share solutions across Europe, helping us to offer a secure alternative option to popular public cloud services."
Launched earlier this year, Transporter for Business appliances offers businesses a file sync and share (FSS) solution that is 100 per cent private and secure, a feature that was singularly important across the varying sectors covered by the new resellers.
For Blue Profile, the IT infrastructure and security specialist, which provides solutions across a broad range of leading industries in the market, the issue was to find its customers a solution that gave them 100 per cent control over data locality. 
Wayne Kenward, Director at Blue Profile said: "Everyone has heard of Dropbox, but we wanted something innovative and different, we were looking for a more secure option that could guarantee security, data control and location control but still offer all of the major benefits of a public cloud solution.  Transporter for Business fits this need."
Virtek, which specialises in virtualisation, cloud services and data storage for SMBs, has a strong customer base within the financial, legal, retail and gaming sectors. 
"These organisations need a high level of visibility over their data, as well as being able to remain compliant within industry regulations," said Jason Clark, Director at Virtek. "The Transporter for Business is an appliance so all the data is stored on premise, which allows organisations to have full control over security and location, while providing easy mobile, multi-device access and addressing the security challenges posed by the public cloud." 
Data security is also a prime focus for new value added reseller (VAR) and consultancy NDC.  "Everyone thinks about the Firewall when it comes to network security but sometimes overlook the impact that data loss causes not only financially but also the damage to branding and reputation.

Prevention of data breaches to an organisation should be as paramount of a concern as the securing of the physical infrastructure," said Nat Dowling, Co-Founder at NDC.  

"Connected Data's Transporter addresses data loss protection by offering truly secure FSS."
