Cheyenne, Wyoming, April 15th, 2020. BlackFog today announced a distribution agreement with CIPS Informatica, a distributor headquartered in Umbria, Italy, to resell its privacy and cybersecurity solution.
CIPS Informatica is one of Italy’s largest distributors for MSP products and solutions focussed on IT security and IT management. Founded in 1991, CIPS is committed to finding new solutions to address the IT issues of its customer base. Since the outbreak of COVID-19 there has been a significant increase in cyberattacks and data breaches around the globe. Together with increased concerns around privacy, data collection practices and government regulation it is crucial for organizations and individuals alike to have adequate privacy protection on their devices. As a result, CIPS have chosen to partner with BlackFog which will enable them to protect their customers from today’s sophisticated online threats. BlackFog Privacy provides both privacy and cyberattack protection with 12 layers of defense against ransomware, spyware, malware, phishing and unauthorized data collection and profiling.
“Privacy has become a major issue for organizations globally so when we heard about BlackFog we realized it was a necessary solution that was missing from our portfolio, commented CIPS CEO Marion Menchetti. “Security and privacy are major areas of focus for us, and we are committed to finding the best technology for our VAR and System Integrator partners. We believe that an on-device technology that focuses on outbound data exfiltration to protect user privacy is exactly what the market requires, and we are excited to partner with BlackFog to provide this.
Our European business is continuing to grow at a rapid pace, and we are excited to onboard a new partner in Italy, said Dr. Darren Williams, CEO and Founder of BlackFog. The European cybersecurity market is expected to be worth over 47 billion USD by 2023 and Italy is experiencing the highest growth rate. This makes it an exciting time for BlackFog to expand into Italy and we believe CIPS is well positioned to help us grow in this new market.
