AlertBoot, a US-based provider of mobile device management (MDM) and full disk encryption (FDE) managed services, has announced a partnership with 6S Global, a UK-based company with over 20 years’ experience in the Information Technology field.
“It’s not an exaggeration to say that our success is founded on the quality of our partners,” said Tim Maliyil, founder and CEO of AlertBoot. “In 6S Global we have found a savvy partner who not only knows the ins and outs of technology, but is fully aware of the market they serve. This partnership will further cement our presence in the UK and function as another stepping stone towards broadcasting the AlertBoot brand to the world.”
The latest partnership delivers cloud-based MDM for smartphones and tablets, and FDE for laptops, that can be used to comply with the UK Data Protection Act, and to abide with guidelines issued by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
Paul Anderson, Director at 6S Global, said: “We feel it will bring a new innovated product to our portfolio, strengthening our position as a leader in Security, Business and Data Intelligence. We have over twenty years’ experience in this area and have looked for technology that we can put the 6S Global stamp of approval. Not only does AlertBoot tick all the technical boxes, it ticks the boxes for cost and support as well.”
AlertBoot’s services feature FIPS 140-2 encryption validated by NIST, the American organisation in charge of certifying security software for use by the US government. The company’s method of delivering encryption software permits on-demand encryption and leads the firm says to a low total cost of ownership that takes into account central management servers, data center space, and other fees normally not directly reflected on individual encryption licenses.
And Stan Aloi, AlertBoot EVP of Business Development and Global Strategic Alliances, said: “Partnering with 6S Global expands our presence through a respected, trusted customer advocate and advisor, and allows us to share our groundbreaking service with the United Kingdom. Having a unique partner like 6S Global that understands physical and electronic security measures, as well as software and data security, gives us great confidence that AlertBoot’s managed data security services will reach new verticals, and protect new customers from data leaks, helping their businesses see continued growth. 6S Global will be looking after the UK market, but as their net casts across a global market, we are also keen to see what can be done here.”
