A new partnership between Overland-Tandberg and the United States Black Chambers (USBC) aims to change that picture for black companies. The alliance will use technology as an economic empowerment tool to help those businesses survive, scale-up, and become inclusive players in the tech ecosystem. “By connecting Overland-Tandberg to USBC’s more than 300,000 members, these companies now receive the same world-class data infrastructure, business continuity, and data protection solutions that are available to Fortune 500 companies and technology industry giants,” Eric Kelly, Overland-Tandberg’s chairman and CEO, recently stated.
An IT infrastructure, data management, and protection company, Overland-Tandberg protects the digital assets of large and small companies in over 90 countries. It was one of Black Enterprise’s 2019 Top 100 companies.
“Business continuity and data protection are critical to the success of small companies as a study we performed with Google confirmed that 98% of black businesses close their doors after being hacked,” Ron Busby, USBC president and CEO, stated recently. “The fact that Overland-Tandberg is a USBC President Circle member and one of the only black-owned and operated global technology companies ensures that our collaboration will be mutually beneficial and will allow us to drive positive business impact for our members.”
