Leader secures Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud portfolio distribution deal for Australia


Leader has signed a distribution agreement with Acronis that covers the vendor’s entire Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud solution portfolio including cybersecurity, backup, disaster recovery, secure file sync & share, as well as notary services.

Acronis is a market leader in cyber protection solutions with a strong heritage of providing the IT channel with best-in-class integrated backup, security, disaster recovery, and enterprise file sync and share solutions built to address 5 vectors of cyber protection; safety, accessibility, privacy, authenticity, and security.

Enhanced by AI technologies and blockchain-based data authentication, Acronis says it “protects all data, in any environment, including physical, virtual, cloud, mobile workloads and applications.”

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

Theo Kristoris, Managing Director of Leader said “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.”

“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,” continued Kristoris.

David Clarke, Head of ANZ Channels at Acronis 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.”

“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,” Clarke concluded.
