Cobalt Iron continues expansion with Northdoor deal

Cobalt Iron has sealed a reseller partner agreement with Northdoor, a UK-based IT consultancy. It will offer Cobalt Iron products, including the company’s Adaptive Data Protection (ADP) SaaS enterprise backup solution, to markets in the UK and Ireland.

Northdoor aims to help businesses to capture, manage, protect and analyse large volumes of commercial data. The company supplies security, infrastructure solutions and services to a range of verticals including finance and insurance, the public sector and IBM iSeries clients. It said Cobalt Iron technology complements and enhances its offerings to these customers.

Cobalt Iron's cloud-based ADP is designed to eliminate complexity, reduce management and scale easily “from terabytes to exabytes”, said the vendor.

“With its core focus on data and its extensive relationships across key verticals, Northdoor is an ideal partner through which to expand market awareness and customer access to our ADP solution,” said Mark Ward, COO at Cobalt Iron. “We’ve chosen Northdoor to join our expanding partner ecosystem of resellers in the UK and EMEA.”

AJ Thomson, chief commercial officer at Northdoor, said: “With ADP in our technology portfolio, we can offer our customers differentiated and innovative solutions for data management and protection.”

Last month, Kansas, US-headquartered Cobalt Iron signed a UK distribution deal with Tech Data.
