Expanded collaboration provides streamlined procurement process for Blancco’s secure data sanitization software
AUSTIN, TEXAS – February 11, 2021 – Blancco Technology Group (LON: BLTG), the industry standard in data erasure and mobile device diagnostics, today announced the company has finalized an agreement with Carahsoft to offer solutions through the AWS Marketplace. This expansion of Blancco’s ongoing relationship with Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider®, gives AWS Consulting Partner Private Offers (CPPO) partners and enterprise decision makers the ability to quickly obtain Blancco’s data erasure software. The vastly simplified procurement process streamlines billing to include “pay-as-you-go” and subscription options, allowing government agencies to build holistic data management solutions.
“Organizations of all sizes – including Federal, state and local government agencies – are tasked with preventing the exposure of highly sensitive and classified information, as well as complying with data privacy regulations. This includes ensuring data is certifiably erased from IT assets and environments at every stage of the information lifecycle,” said Christina Walker, Global Director of Channel, Blancco. “We’re thrilled that Carahsoft is now offering our industry-standard data sanitization software through private offers on AWS Marketplace, allowing us to help even more agencies confidently meet their data mandates quickly and cost-effectively.”
Secure data erasure is especially critical when organizations undertake digital transformation initiatives that incorporate cloud migration. As data is prepared for its move to the cloud, organizations discover redundant, outdated and trivial (ROT) information that they no longer need. Blancco’s data erasure solution, which works in conjunction with data management solutions that identify this obsolete data, provides the means to securely eliminate it in a secure, auditable manner.
Since its founding in 2004, Carahsoft has provided the public sector with IT solutions from hundreds of technology vendors, prime contractors, system integrators, value-added resellers and channel partners. In addition to serving government agencies, the company also supports large education and healthcare organizations. In 2019, the company booked more than $6.5 billion in sales and has now expanded its team to include more than 1,700 sales, marketing, customer service and contracting professionals.
Michael Shrader, Vice President of Intelligent and Innovative Solutions at Carahsoft, believes the addition of Blancco solutions to AWS Marketplace through Carahsoft is the next logical step in the two companies’ successful three-year collaboration. “Blancco’s deep commitment to data protection through secure, auditable data erasure is perfectly aligned with our mission to deliver best-of-breed software and support solutions to the public sector,” Shrader said. “Expanding our relationship gives public sector organizations the ability to more easily procure Blancco’s world-class solution though the AWS Marketplace and our reseller partners and extends the market reach of both Carahsoft and Blancco.”
