Blancco Technology Group Company Overview

Blancco Technology Group Company Overview


So, the short overview of Blancco is we help
customers manage data in the most effective way; whether through erasure technologies
or diagnostics technologies. So, Blancco has three main business units. The first is the Mobile arena, where we operate
right across the ecosystem of the Mobile world. Secondly, is the Enterprise business, at which
the Data Center business is a real core component where we see large growth in the wider Enterprise
market and the third component, is really the traditional heart of Blancco which is
the ITAD business and now we’re working with with ITADs as they find ways of working their
way up their own value chain. Really what differentiates us from competitors
is the broadest set of technology and a worldwide footprint to service them wherever they are. Almost any company, of any size, can use our
technology- from Fortune 500 companies to big mobile companies. Our strongest growth will really come from
two specific markets. One’s Mobile, which is growing very fast given
the handset trade-in market. The second is Enterprise which is a whole
new market for us, where we really believe it is the biggest market and the most opportunity. The strategy that we’ve taken as a business,
has been to focus on the three main market segments we work in, which are in Data Center/Enterprise, Mobile and ITAD. We’ve got a big focus there and we decided
to make some large investments into the company particularly around R&D and particularly in
the Mobile sector, so that’s led to a big increase in our headcount this year. We’ve seen our headcount increase from around
250 people, to almost 300 over the course of the year. We spent more in Marketing to really push
our profile as an organization, and we’ve seen that come through in the numbers and
we are feeling very optimistic about our prospects. Blancco has a very strong shareholder base. So we have, as a leading shareholder, some
of the world’s largest financial institutions. We enjoy a good, positive relationship with
shareholders and we uphold the highest standard of communication and transparency with our
shareholder base. The key trends in our end-market are really
threefold and they’re all wind at our back. First, there’s privacy, and that’s really
driven by the end-user wanting more privacy. Second is security; that everybody wants to
be more secure and we can help them make their their overall infrastructure more secure. And finally, there’s a whole regulatory environment-
GDPR and others that are forcing companies to manage data in a different way. So we want to position Blancco as a leader
in every sector we’re in. So, for us, that means the most innovative
product; it means they’ll service a customer in any country worldwide and sell to them
there; that we have the best customer satisfaction ratings; we’re the highest growth; were the
biggest company- so leader in every market. As we go forward, I expect more and more regulations
come in to force companies to protect data that they have and to erase data that they
no longer require and Blancco’s perfectly positioned to take advantage of that opportunity,
so I think we are at very much at the beginning of what’s going to be a successful period
for Blancco. Love working at Blancco. It’s a wonderful company, with a great set
of employees and it couldn’t be a better place to work.
