ATLANTA, Georgia, July 31, 2013 -
Blancco, the global leader in data erasure and computer reuse solutions, has launched a partner program to streamline data erasure processes for IT asset disposal (ITAD) organizations in the U.S. Three companies have joined as charter members and Gold Level partners-the value recovery business of Arrow Electronics Inc., a global provider of electronic component and enterprise computing solutions and support; CloudBlue, a leading provider of enterprise IT asset disposition services; and CSI Leasing, one of the world's largest equipment leasing companies.
"The Blancco U.S. ITAD Partner Program is how we go the extra mile to help ITADs securely and efficiently meet growing data privacy challenges for their enterprise customers," said Markku Willgren, president of Blancco's U.S. operations. "It sets the foundation for a deeper business relationship with our key ITAD customers, through which we can offer comprehensive services and help them effectively manage erasure processes. Our ITAD partner reseller and lead referral agreements position us to bring our world-class data erasure solutions to a wider range of organizations."
In addition to participating in reseller and lead referral programs, Blancco Gold Level ITAD partners gain access to co-branding opportunities, exclusive offers and events, and partner level pricing and technical support. They also have access to the Blancco Certified Engineer training program, which improves understanding of data erasure processes, individual products, and erasure best practices for partner facilities.
"Data privacy and data erasure are growing concerns for enterprises around the world. Arrow is committed to investing in global processes, systems and compliance protocols so we can deliver solutions that our clients trust," said Tim Kolbus, vice president of global logistics services for Arrow. "We're pleased to become a charter member of Blancco's new partner program, as we look to help guide innovation forward by deploying the most secure and advanced solutions possible for our clients."
