Boldon James Appoints New Commercial Lead in France

Paris, France 8th June 2017 – QinetiQ’s data security company Boldon James, a leading provider of Data Classification and Secure Messaging solutions, today announced the appointment of Arnaud Clichy as Regional Director, France. The appointment comes as a result of increased deployments of Boldon James Classifier, the leading data classification solution, across France, and is directly fuelled by demand from organisations who are required to meet the new European General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) by 25th May 2018.

With GDPR driving data leakage and data privacy to be a board-level issue for organisations, French businesses face growing pressure to proactively identify their sensitive data and enforce rules to prevent that sensitive data being lost or leaked.

Arnaud joins Boldon James having held roles at Atos, Safran and Cap Gemini and brings with him a wealth of experience and knowledge of how data centric security software can be used not only to protect sensitive data but how cultural change can be accelerated by putting the users at the heart of your security approach. In working with technology and system integration partners, Boldon James is working hard to deliver a solution that significantly aids GDPR compliance with the combination of data classification, data discovery and data loss prevention technologies.

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. We are delighted to welcome Arnaud to our team, with his extensive experience he will enable us to support businesses within this market and our help drive our growth in French speaking markets.”
