Acronis Awarded 5-Star Rating in CRN’s 2014 Partner Program Guide

Annual guide recognizes the very best channel partner programs in the market

Woburn, Mass. March 17, 2014 – Acronis, a global data protection company, today announced it has been awarded a 5-Star rating in the CRN 2014 Partner Program Guide. The annual directory is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

Acronis’ partner programs offer channel resellers sales, marketing and technical expertise to help them grow their businesses and gain a competitive edge in their markets. In the last 12 months, Acronis has added over 1,000 new partners to its program in the US and now has over 8,000 members in North America. Acronis’ partner programs include the Acronis Global Partner Program, the Acronis Global Technology Alliance Program, and the Acronis Web Affiliates Program. Acronis also offers partners 24/7 maintenance and support, as well as training and certification courses from Acronis Academy, which help partners build their sales and technical expertise on Acronis’ products.

“IT needs are changing dramatically. With the explosion of data sizes and types, the channel is under increased stress to deliver solutions that can protect data across multiple environments,” said David Junca, Acronis’ vice president of sales and channels for the Americas . “To help our channel partners stay relevant, we’re extending our offerings to new partner types, allowing them to maximize opportunities in the cloud and enterprise mobility. We are also strengthening the relationship and services offered to our partners; in the past year alone we’ve formed the Acronis Partner Council, expanded our Acronis Certified Engineer program and improved licensing with simplified pricing and SKUs.”

To determine the 2014 5-Star recipients, The Channel Company’s Research team assessed each vendor’s application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.

“Solution providers have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor, with the right technologies, and the right approach can make all the difference,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star rating recognizes the very best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendor delivers the best partner elements for their individual business goals.”

The 2014 Partner Program Guide will be featured on and the 5-Star Partners listing will be highlighted in the April issue of CRN.
