ESET®, the global leader in proactive digital protection, announced today that StorageCraft®, a leading provider of data backup and disaster recovery solutions, has joined the ESET Technology Alliance. As a result of this relationship, existing ESET customers now have the option to add StorageCraft backup and disaster recovery to their layered security strategy through their existing ESET reseller.
"Report of *Ponemon Institute says that data loss cost companies an average of $7,900 (7,340 EUR) for every minute of the downtime. Providing StorageCraft, the best-in-class backup and disaster recovery solution, as a part of ESET Technology Alliance enables our partners and customers to add this solution to their layered security,“ says Jeronimo Varela, Director of Global Sales at ESET.
Launched in 2013, the ESET Technology Alliance is an integration partnership that aims to better protect businesses by offering a range of complementary IT security solutions. All members of the ESET Technology Alliance are carefully vetted against a set of established criteria to extend “best-in-class” business protection across IT environments.
StorageCraft offers award-winning backup software and disaster recovery, data protection, and migration solutions for physical, virtual, and hybrid Windows and Linux IT environments. The company’s solutions enable users to maintain business continuity during times of disaster, computer outages, or other unforeseen events by reducing downtime, improving security and stability for systems and data and lowering the total cost of ownership.
“As a seller of both ESET and StorageCraft exclusively, we are excited to see this partnership come together,” said Mitch Miller, owner and president of Dynamic Computer Solutions. “Security and recovery go hand in hand, and increasingly, our customers are looking for a comprehensive approach to security, and a one stop shop for their security needs. Whether it is on the data side or the hardware side, these two vendors truly offer best-in-class solutions.”
By offering StorageCraft through ESET, customers and channel partners will receive an enhanced ordering experience, and easy access to high caliber products that cover a multi-layered security solution. In addition, partners will receive competitive pricing on select ESET products when purchasing ESET and StorageCraft together.
“In today’s 24/7 business environment, enterprises can’t afford to shut down for a day due to natural disasters or data loss, which is why it’s imperative that enterprises big and small have both a backup and recovery solution in place as part of their comprehensive security strategy,” said Mike Kunz, vice president of worldwide sales at StorageCraft. “Choosing ESET as our preferred security partner not only streamlines our joint customers’ experiences, but offers them access to the best security and backup and recovery solutions on the market with one touchpoint.”
