SAN DIEGO, April 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- 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, ESET customers now have the option to add StorageCraft backup and disaster recovery to their layered security strategy through their existing ESET reseller.*
"Our partners and customers have been asking for backup and disaster recovery solutions," said Gerald Choung, vice president of sales at ESET North America. "Adding StorageCraft to the ESET Technology Alliance makes perfect sense since they have an outstanding line of products and conduct their business exclusively through the reseller channel. With the Ponemon Institute* reporting that companies lose an average of $7,900 for every minute of downtime, StorageCraft's ability to offer our customers 100 percent business continuity made them an easy choice."
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 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."
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. Benefiting from a full integration with the ESET ordering and licensing system, the Technology Alliance enables ESET resellers to offer business customers a broader set of products and services.
