Connected Data Adds 3 Channel Partners in Europe

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.
The announcement comes fast on the heels of announcing its first value added distributor (VAD) in Europe, Commtech, just last month.
“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 percent private and secure.
Virtek, which specializes in virtualization, cloud services and data storage for SMBs, has a strong customer base within the financial, legal, retail and gaming sectors; and data security is the prime focus for VAR and consultancy NDC. For Blue Profile, the IT infrastructure and security specialist, the issue was to find its customers a solution that gave them control over data locality.
“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, ” said Wayne Kenward, director at Blue Profile. “Transporter for Business fits this need.”
