Farnborough, 27th April 2015 – QinetiQ’s data security company Boldon James, a leading provider of Data Classification and Secure Messaging solutions, today announced its partnership with, an IT Security reseller based in Paris. The partnership with I-TRACING has been established to meet the growing market demand for information, trials and sales of Boldon James Classifier across France.

With accidental data leakage becoming increasingly common in France, resulting in huge fines and reputational damage, French businesses face growing pressure to protectively-mark their data and enforce rules to prevent sensitive data being lost or leaked. I-TRACING needed an established vendor solution that was proven within the complex environments faced by its customers. With its 30 year experience of providing data classification and secure messaging solutions, combined with its proven technical expertise and blue chip customer base, Boldon James was seen to be the perfect match.

I-TRACING has been a leader in IT security for 10 years and has a substantial client portfolio, being one of the largest IT Security resellers in France. I-TRACING customers are becoming increasingly aware of the need to classify their data and enforce rules based on the sensitivity of that data. The new partnership allows the Boldon James Classifier data classification solution to be easily accessible to customers across France.

Commenting on the recent partnership, Walid Arfaoui, Key Account Manager at I-TRACING said: “Partnering with Boldon James and offering data classification products and services will not only benefit I-TRACING but also all of its security-conscious customers. We have seen the demand increasing for data classification over the last six months and it is imperative that we offer our customers a product from a vendor that has credible experience and technical know-how in this field. The team at Boldon James have made the process of becoming a partner very easy and we look forward to building a strong relationship with them moving forward.”

Paul Johnson, EMEA Sales Director at Boldon James said: “France is a key market for Boldon James and we have seen a significant increase in demand from French multinational organisations. Having a well-recognised Channel partner such as I-TRACING to represent Boldon James will enable us to support businesses within this market and our help drive our growth into central Europe.”
