Ahead of its national conference this Thursday, Channel services group Synaxon UK has signed a members’ exclusive distributor agreement for Autotask Endpoint Backup (AEB). This deal will see Synaxon members benefit from a simple and cost-effective way to provide file backup with unlimited storage to customers and thus safeguard against the threat of ransomware and other malware attacks.
AEB is designed specifically for resellers, and fully integrates with Autotask’s professional services automation and remote monitoring and management software. It includes full provisioning, reporting, and monitoring capabilities, and in doing so, paves the way to generate recurring revenue from sales of managed services. Synaxon has partnered with Autotask to provide all provisioning and delivery of AEB via EGIS, its online information and procurement platform. Due to its cost-effectiveness and easy automation, the firm says that AEB is the only true safeguard most small firms have against ransomware and other malicious threats.
As the recent WannaCry attack illustrates, ransomware is a growing problem for organisations. “Ransomware can’t be ignored by any business, no matter how small," said Synaxon UK managing director Derek Jones. "It was already a massive problem and recent events have put it well and truly into the spotlight. We were already planning to bring AEB to the UK market and it’s now even more pertinent and even more of an opportunity for our members. We now have a superb and very well-established partnership with Autotask, so we know we’ll get great, local support. And we believe there is tremendous potential for AEB in the UK market.”
The AEB solution launched in Autumn 2016 and has established itself as a leading player in cloud file backup. It provides continuous backup without requiring users to save files to a network drive. In doing so, it makes life easier for users and massively reduces the vulnerability of end points to ransomware.
Autotask CEO Mark Cattini, said: “We are excited to partner with Synaxon to deliver this critical and timely business continuity solution. Together, we will proactively address the current epidemic of cyber threats, by enabling Synaxon partners to secure their customer’s data profitably with Autotask Endpoint Backup.”
Mark Cattini will speak at the aforementioned Synaxon UK National Conference, for which Autotask is one of the main sponsors. The event takes place on Thursday 15th and Friday 16th June 2017 at the Park Inn Radisson at Heathrow.
