Having gone from secure file transfer to managed file transfer, HANDD branched out into 'Data Classification' in 2011. This new field takes them more into compliance and security of information in terms of who has the right to access what sort of data. This means that policies need to be derived to classify users and information so that data is secure - a requirement of many industries and company's auditors.
2012 finds HANDD with 2 successful businesses under their belt - MFT and Data Classification and working with top software companies such as Titus, Varonis, Linoma, SSH, GlobalSCAPE, Ipswitch, SRT and Attachmate. HANDD have also set up operations in the far east.
HANDD started working with managed and secure file transfer software company SSH in about 2010 and they have been impressed with the market penetration HANDD have achieved for their managed file transfer products. So much so that this has been pivotal to SSH appointing HANDD as global distributor of their new departure, their Universal SSH Key Manager which allows organisations to keep tabs on encrypted access by servers and humans to valuable company data. As compliance to data protection and privacy codes come more to the fore, control of the user key environment has become a hot topic.
On the appointment of HANDD, CEO Anthony Hodges comments:
"We are delighted that SSH have recognised our strength in the data security sector and that they are entrusting us with the future growth of their company. This new area takes us beyond MFT into a new and growing sector which we will succeed in because of our contacts and tenacity. SSH have developed a ground-breaking SSH Key Manager solution that any company with rotating staff and valuable data assets should seriously consider for the future and to remain compliant."
