Ingram and Acronis Bring Cloud Data Protection to UK

Security

Ingram Micro has announced it has expanded its distribution agreement with Acronis.

Initially offered in the United States, the expanded relationship has extended the reach and availability of Acronis’ cloud data protection solutions offered via Ingram Micro to nine countries – Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom – with more planned.

Channel partners worldwide will soon be able to configure and manage Acronis’ cloud data protection solutions from a single automated platform.

With the rising threat of data loss from security breaches, system failures, and man-made and natural disasters, many organisations are turning to cloud and hybrid cloud solutions to protect their information. Acronis offers channel partners the ability to provide customisable data protection solutions to their end-customers.

“The addition of Acronis to the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace and new premier status in the U.S. demonstrates our commitment to identifying and delivering best-in-class solutions and cloud services that help channel partners drive business transformation, gain a competitive edge and increase profitability,” said Paul Bay, executive vice president and chief executive, Ingram Micro U.S.

“We are extremely pleased that Ingram Micro has selected Acronis as a preferred provider of data protection solutions for its Cloud Marketplace and Advanced Solutions organisation. What makes our expanded relationship unique is that Ingram Micro can now distribute Acronis software, broker Acronis services to cloud resellers, and sell Acronis cloud solutions to service providers – greatly extending our partner reach and value,” said Serguei Beloussov, Co-Founder and CEO at Acronis. “We believe that leaders like Ingram Micro play a critical role in the adoption and growth of cloud services, adding value by acting as the integrator, product manager, and cost manager for partners. Ingram Micro partners worldwide can now have a best-in-class choice for complete data protection that is integrated with the Ingram Micro platform and can be easily customised and tailored to the end-user’s needs.”
