Compliance Standards LLC Awards Data Security Firm Blancco Five-Star Excellence Rating for Vision, Execution, and Sustainability

Apr 15 2014, 7:08am CDT | by

Miami, FL, April 15, 2014 --(PR.com )-- Compliance Standards LLC announces that data erasure expert Blancco was awarded a five-star rating for its corporate vision, execution and sustainability strategy.

To be awarded a 5-star rating, Blancco, a unit of Regenersis achieved a healthy 91% score, showing that the company’s current business model is sound, and its vision and future development are likely to guarantee sustainable business. Its offerings and business model are relevant within the context of a highly sensitive data security environment. This makes the company’s products and solutions relevant to the market.

“Blancco tends to be the default data erasure firm used by leading ITAD operators and electronics recyclers polled by Compliance Standards for the purpose of its research. Blancco’s products and services are also well introduced within many large organizations on the end-user side, servicing sectors like law enforcement, the financial industry, healthcare, and other verticals,” says David Daoud, Managing Director of Compliance Standards LLC. Adding that “the company has good growth prospects in the horizontal space and we expect the bulk of its future go-to-market investments to focus on building a direct sales approach to enterprise IT, expanding above and beyond the rapidly consolidating IT Asset Disposition services sector. Furthermore, its parent company Regenergis is likely to play a significant role in helping Blancco penetrate the OEM market and by extension the transactional consumer space in the long run.”

Going forward, Compliance Standards expects at least four critical factors to drive growth momentum for Blancco:

o The secondary market for client devices will remain relatively healthy, despite a cooling off of demand in the brand new IT equipment market. Although traditional distributed IT equipment such as desktops and notebooks are witnessing a decline in sales and acceptance, there is a strong momentum for new categories of devices such as smartphones, tablets, new generation of home appliances and other data-storing devices, as well as a rapid expansion of data-center infrastructure around the world. These expanding shipments of devices, appliances and IT infrastructures will mean greater need for storage and therefore greater need for data erasure technology.

o As a new subsidiary of Regenersis, Blancco is expected to take full advantage of its position to penetrate new OEM accounts and eventually the transactional market with the support of its parent company.

o Expanding data and privacy laws around the world will also propel Blancco to the forefront of the end-user space. Emerging markets will also become more sensitive to data security, providing new opportunities for Blancco.

o On the management side, Compliance Standards LLC sees a consistent solid and forward looking management style within Blancco, capable of putting together a compelling global organizational structure, channeling the right resources to fuel growth, and competent in challenging its own initial visions. The first noticeable management act the company made in 1998 was precisely to cannibalize on its own business model, shifting from being an R&D house to a data security firm, hence taking advantage of a new niche to fill. This ability to challenge itself is critical in ensuring the company is prepared to take the right steps going forward.

Compliance Standards LLC also notes that Blancco should also expect to meet growing challenges from competition and from the complexity of devices that are expected to hit the market in the future.

Another challenge for Blancco is regional competition that tends to price lower. This may not always be a negative factor as the company is focused on high-end customers and would argue that its R&D and customer service investments encourage data-sensitive customers to pay a premium.

Of a lesser problem, but worth focusing on is the customer feedback that focuses on two issues: there is a perception of higher cost vs. competition, and, feedback on centralized tech support being based in Finland brings additional reasons for Blancco to focus on customer perception. For the latter, the company has recently taken steps to decentralize tech support at the country level, but some potential customers remain unaware of the change.

These factors, balanced with the challenges the company faces, led Compliance Standards LLC to issue a 5-Star rating on a 91% score.

Jul 29 2014 7:57am CDT | Source: SeekingAlpha

By Bret Jensen:My income portfolio was heavily tilted towards real estate investment trusts (REITs) to begin 2014. This was primarily because I did not believe the economic consensus calling for the economy to break out from the anemic 2% GDP growth it has been stuck in for five years in what continues to be the weakest post war recovery on record.Therefore the call for interest rates to rise significantly from the 3% level (at year end 2013) on ten year treasuries seemed misplaced ...
