Cambridge, United Kingdom, May 14, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- CenterTools welcomes new partner Network Utilities (Systems) Ltd, a Network and IT Security specialist provider to mid and enterprise businesses in the UK.
This partnership enables Network Utilities to provide its clients with CenterTools DriveLock™ endpoint security solution. DriveLock can help prevent leakage of confidential data, and provide advanced device control, Full Disk Encryption (FDE) and application control along with Anti-Virus.
“Working with a focused specialist who understand its markets and the risk around Data Loss to organisations in the mid and enterprise space is key to the continuing growth of DriveLock in the UK,” commented Stephan Atkins, CenterTools UK and Ireland Country Manager.
New legislation introduced in April last year gives the Information Commissioner's Office the power to issue fines of up to £500,000 to businesses that compromise their customer data. This, combined with several high profile data loss news stories, has lead to an increased awareness amongst business of the risks around data protection.
“Many of our customers have been concerned for some time about the potential threats and costs of data loss whether by mistake or by malicious intent, and recent high profile cases in the press aligned with the very real threat of a fine for any breach have raised their concern levels even higher. Our partnership with CenterTools and their DriveLock solution means that we are now fully equipped to help our customers ensure that they are protected.” said David Silsby, Sales Director of Network Utilities.
Having successfully completed the technical training program Network Utilities is now listed on the www.drivelock.com website as CenterTools partner for the United Kingdom.
