DATA RISK MANAGEMENT TOPS BELL MICRO’S SECURITY AGENDA Monday 14 April 2008 PDF Print Distributor set to lead European charge with better data risk management Visit Bell Micro at Infosecurity Europe 2008, Olympia, 22nd April, Stand F230 Chessington, Surrey, UK – Specialist value-added distributor, Bell Micro today announced that, with the support of vendor and reseller partners, it plans to bring to the UK market the first all encompassing end-to-end data security service. Once available in the UK, an extensive roll out across other operating divisions in Europe will take place. “The increased attention to the actual data in an organisation - how it is protected, encrypted, moved and stored - is significant in the market and is one that plays into the very heartland of Bell Micro’s Pan-European business,” said Steve Browell, Bell Micro’s new General Manager of the Security Division. “Our business aim is to bring together the necessary partners in storage, servers and data to work alongside the Security Division and create new ways of protecting data.” Whether data is at rest on desktops, laptops, portable media, servers, requires protection within database systems or via VPN technology when in transit, Bell Micro proposes to distribute a total service that delivers true data loss prevention, ending business information leakage. Whilst the base technology has been in play for a while the market is now beginning to embrace information centric computing, and increasingly recognises the value of information risk management. “The thought processes and the accompanying technology are all coming together nicely, but we still need to encourage companies to be bold and invest in the systems that will not only protect a business and its expenditure, but that will also be critical to ensuring good governance,” Browell continued. Bell Micro’s comprehensive portfolio of security products and services enables the company to take a knowledgeable position in this arena. As a key player in a market that will grow, worldwide, Bell Micro is confident that it is well positioned to keep its customers ahead of the security curve.
