Leader has officially signed a distribution agreement with Acronis for the Australian market.

The agreement covers the entire Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud solution portfolio, which includes cybersecurity, backup, disaster recovery, secure file sync and share, as well as notary services.

The Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud platform will be accessible to Leader partners via the Leader Cloud portal starting from this week, according to a statement.

Acronis is a specialist in cyber protection solutions with a background in providing the IT channel with integrated backup, security, disaster recovery, and enterprise file sync and share solutions.

These solutions are built to address five vectors of cyber protection, that is, safety, accessibility, privacy, authenticity, and security.

Enhanced by AI technologies and blockchain-based data authentication, Acronis is focused on protecting all data, in any environment, including physical, virtual, cloud, mobile workloads and applications.

Leader is driven by building relationships with both resellers and vendors. The dedicated account manager team works with resellers to help them achieve market success.

The company provides the IT Channel with complete solutions, from servers, PC's, gaming, accessories, networking, storage, software to cloud services, VoIP solutions, and SIP trunking and other telco services.

Leader managing director, Theo Kristoris, says, “Acronis has a long history within the IT channel for being a market leader in backup and recovery solutions - it's for this reason we are excited to have secured this new distribution agreement which will now provide IT resellers nationwide with access to the Acronis Cloud portfolio through the Leader Cloud platform.

Kristoris says, “Digital transformation is expanding rapidly, and with that the need for better cyber protection solutions will continue to grow just as fast.

"Acronis really sets itself apart by offering unique value in their Cyber Protect Cloud solution that offers not only backup and disaster recovery - but also zero-day ransomware protection.

“Leader will offer extra value-add through our marketing, training and support offerings - helping resellers to better grow their business with Acronis.

Acronis head of ANZ channels David Clarke, says, “Acronis is excited to welcome Leader into our family of cloud distribution partners in Australia.

"We are confident that this partnership will support our business objectives well into the future and we look forward to working closely with the dedicated team at Leader to make it a success.

Clarke says, “In conjunction with Leader marketing, training and support offerings the Acronis newly launched Partner Program will play a key role in helping Leader partners access resources and program benefits geared to help them grow and generate recurring revenues through Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud service offerings.
