Through this agreement, H3 Secure will primarily target businesses in telecommunications, retail, finance, healthcare, utilities and government.

“The digital ecosystem in the Middle East and North Africa is more advanced than most think,” said Hatem Al Hatu, Managing Director, H3 Secure. “With an increasing number of mobile subscribers and explosive growth in data, servicing the market with the best data erasure and mobile diagnostics technology solutions, such as Blancco 5, Blancco Mobile and the SmartChk diagnostics tools, is important to the continued growth of the region. I’m confident that with Blancco Technology Group, we’ll be able to help educate regional organizations on proper data removal methods, mobile device diagnostics processes and industry best practices.”

Key market trends and business challenges in the region have been taken into consideration and will prove vital in driving the relationship, including:

  • Data security in the Middle East and North Africa is an increasingly competitive market and is projected to grow to $13.43 billion by 2019, according to a report from Markets and Markets.
  • Cloud services have seen considerable growth in the region due in large part to the scalability and flexibility it offers to businesses, according to International Data Corporation (IDC).
  • Smartphones will account for 34 percent of active handsets in the MENA region by 2018 and will drive growing demand for data services, according to a forecast from Analysys Mason.

“A growing number of organizations are digital in the Middle East and North Africa, alongside the rest of the world” said Pat Clawson, CEO of Blancco Technology Group. “But as organizations increasingly create, store, transfer and share digital information, it opens the door to operational inefficiencies, security threats, regulatory compliance violations and data breaches. To mitigate these risks, organizations must do more than implement the necessary technology solutions; they must change their entire understanding of and management of data and devices across the entire lifecycle. We see great value in this partnership with H3 Secure and believe it is the best way to address the region’s digital challenges.”
