Markham, Ont. and Boulder, Colo. (PRWEB) September 4, 2009
PeakData Services, Inc, a fast-growing IT provider dedicated to information security compliance and risk mitigation services, announced today that it has launched operations in Canada as PeakData Services Canada with headquarters in Markham, Ontario.
Leading PeakData Services Canada sales and market development is Larry King. With more than 30 years' experience in the IT industry, King has worked in enterprise IT service and support management positions with IBM Canada, StorageTek Canada and Sun Microsystems Canada. He has spent the bulk of his career supporting Canadian customers with respect to their enterprise information storage requirements. Most recently King has run his own storage consulting business.
"PeakData Services is a broad-based services organization that focuses on the protection and management of enterprise data," said King. "So much of our work these days relates to risk mitigation efforts associated with storage media at the end of its useful life. Companies across all industry segments in Canada are dealing virtually every day with the challenges of securing personally identifiable information against a backdrop of increasingly punitive legislation aimed at preventing data breaches. That's the sweet spot of our business," King added.
"We are seeing the same information and risk management challenges among organizations in every part of the world," said Glenn Jacobsen, vice president and general manager of PeakData Services. "With the growth of our business here it made sense to set up operations for better support of our Canadian customers."
