SA’s Rectron extends Acronis partnership to bolster cloud security
South African distributor of IT products Rectron has expanded its cyber security solution range with the addition of technology from cloud services partner Acronis.
In a statement Rectron explained that Acronis provides end-to-end cyber protection in one platform, which includes preventative protection, backup and disaster recovery.
Rectron partners, who have signed Acronis service provider agreements, will also be able to customise the security service into bespoke packages and billing options.
Elaine Wang, Cloud and Software Solutions Director at Rectron, said, “This past year has accelerated many businesses journey to the cloud while at the same time, there’s increased attacks from cybercriminals targeting remote working situations. With this updated menu of services from Acronis, our resellers can build their own bespoke cyber security practice, which offers businesses the benefits of cloud technology with a flexible approach, depending on their budgets and circumstances.”
Rectron is also looking to leverage the Acronis Cyber Cloud platform to enable service providers and their clients to access to hybrid cloud backup, disaster recovery, ransomware protection, file sync and share, and blockchain-based file notarisation and e-signature services.
“We have enjoyed a long-standing partnership with Rectron, with our Acronis Cloud Backup as part of the RCT cloud platform portfolio. We’re now excited to continue this evolution of cloud service offerings with our all-in-one cyber protection, which has been built to enable service providers to easily deliver efficient, reliable and secure solutions across data, applications and systems,” says Peter French, General Manager for Middle East and Africa at Acronis.
This new addition from Acronis is part of RCT Cloud, Rectron’s cloud platform that houses the distributor’s cloud and software solutions, as well as Rectron’s professional services. These include access to licenses, assistance with migrations and deployments and after-sales support.
