LAWRENCE, Kan. and LONDON — March 12, 2019 — Cobalt Iron Inc., a leading provider of enterprise data protection SaaS, today announced that it has completed a reseller partner agreement with Northdoor, a U.K.-based IT consultancy specializing in data. Northdoor will distribute Cobalt Iron products, including the company’s Compass SaaS enterprise backup solution, to markets in the U.K. and Ireland.

“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 Compass solution,” said Mark Ward, chief operating officer at Cobalt Iron. “We’ve chosen Northdoor to join our expanding partner ecosystem of resellers in the U.K. and EMEA, and we look forward to building a very successful relationship for our businesses and our customers.”
