Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) May 30, 2013
AlertBoot Data Security, a leading provider of mobile device management and full disk encryption managed services, today announced a new partnership with GraVoc Associates, Inc. of Massachusetts. The partnership raises AlertBoot's profile among small and medium sized businesses in New England that are interested in implementing "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) programs while complying with state and federal data breach and information security laws.
"Last year's BYOD 'trend' is fast becoming this year's established business practice as companies capitalize on BYOD," said Tim Maliyil, CEO of AlertBoot. "However, it also exposes companies to increased threats, including legal risks. Massachusetts, in particular, has one of the strictest data protection laws in the USA. With AlertBoot in its portfolio, GraVoc offers clients an easy and effective method of protecting devices against information security incidents stemming from theft and loss."
Nathaniel Gravel, Director of Information Security Practice at GraVoc explained, “At first, the ability for our customers to add one license at a time with AlertBoot [rather than have to commit to 25 or 50 licenses up front] is truly what piqued our interest, since many of them have traditionally preferred phased implementations of mobile technology. Nevertheless, as we continued to explore AlertBoot’s solutions and the technology behind them, we certainly liked what we saw, and it became even more apparent that forming a partnership with AlertBoot would be beneficial to us, our customers, and the markets we serve.”
AlertBoot Mobile Security, the company's cloud-based mobile device management (MDM) service, complements AlertBoot Full Disk Encryption, the company's AES-256 encryption solution for laptops and external hard drives. Between the two services, AlertBoot is the only true provider of complete endpoint security solutions for mobile data on smartphones, tablets, and laptops, and comes with one of the most competitive channel programs in the market. Under the AlertBoot Corporate Channel Program, partners receive customized marketing, training, and access to full tech support to promote and drive business with AlertBoot sales leadership.
"GraVoc takes a consultative approach in figuring out their clients' needs, and only submits a solution when there is a strong fit for the customer," noted Stanley Aloi, Executive VP of Business Development and Global Strategic Alliances. "This is exactly the type of customer-focused partner we want to welcome to our team, and I am truly excited to be working with GraVoc. They are well-established in New England because of their strong focus and commitment to the region. Many companies will benefit from our partnership as we work to provide managed security services that protect our mutual customers' operations."
