ESET®, global leader in proactive digital protection, has announced 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.
A report by the Ponemon Institute* found that data loss cost companies an average of $7,900 for every minute of the downtime. “This is a significant overhead with added reputational damages. Organizations need to work backup and recovery into their IT strategies. By providing the best-in-class backup and disaster recovery solution from StorageCraft, we at ESET are giving our enterprise customers the ability to seamlessly add this essential component to their layered security,” said Neo Neophytou, Managing Director, ESET Middle East.
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.
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.”
