Lifeboat will offer the full range of Acronis’ data protection solutions and local support to its network of value-added resellers, system integrators, and managed service providers in the United States and Canada.

“Lifeboat Distribution is well known for its commitment to customers and amazing SLAs for end-users. The company’s approach to customer service and focus on serving the needs of all size businesses align with our strategic direction. Acronis works with the best in the business and we are excited to offer Lifeboat’s reseller network our award-winning solutions,” said Patrick Hurley, Vice President and General Manager, Americas at Acronis.

Under the new agreement, Lifeboat will promote, distribute and support Acronis’ business and consumer products, enabling resellers to make more money by tapping into the growing demand for complete backup and recovery products in the North American region. Acronis’ best-in-class data protection solutions are easy to sell, more complete and dramatically faster than the competition. The partner program and a robust catalog with few product SKUs makes cross- selling simple to drastically increase reseller revenue.

Acronis’ product portfolio offers complete data protection for business and home users. The latest solution, Acronis Backup 12.5, offers unprecedented levels of protection for all sizes of hybrid IT infrastructure. It is the world’s fastest, most reliable, complete, and cost-effective backup offering available on the market today. The release delivers the industry’s first and only data protection against ransomware with automated restoration of damaged data. Acronis Backup 12.5 also introduces new technology that enables users to verify the backup integrity before its restoration, improving regulatory compliance and data integrity with blockchain. Businesses can start small with Acronis Backup 12.5 Standard edition and scale to Acronis Backup 12.5 Advanced as required by their growing infrastructure, simply by changing license keys. This gives partners the flexibility to meet the needs of small and large businesses with the same product.

“We are honored to have Acronis rejoin Lifeboat Distribution. This relationship will allow Lifeboat to extend our reach by adding an assortment of great software products to our portfolio. Having the ability to offer Acronis’ complete solution suite, we can now supply our channel partners with the most comprehensive and innovative data protection offerings in the marketplace today,” added Simon Nynens, CEO of Wayside Technology Group.
