SherWeb Integrates Acronis Cloud Backup Capabilities into Hosted Services Solution Offerings

Burlington, May 3, 2017 - Acronis, a global leader in hybrid cloud data protection and storage and SherWeb jointly announced today their recent agreement to integrate Acronis Backup Cloud into the SherWeb family of cloud-based hosting solutions. Under the agreement, SherWeb will receive access to the world's most complete hybrid cloud backup technology, opening new revenue opportunities to partners and meeting the data protection need of their customers.

Selecting Acronis Backup Cloud as a new Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) platform is part of a SherWeb's initiative to refresh its overall service offerings as the company stays true to its commitment to making the latest technology available to its partners and service providers. SherWeb will provide technical support, training, and management tools, making it easy and fast to resell and enabling service providers to increase customer retention and generate new income.

"Adding the Acronis backup solution is a great move for both SherWeb and its partner network," said Peter Cassar, chief executive officer, SherWeb. "This is a well-known product that our partners can trust. The fact that we're offering a white-label option will also make it more attractive to our resellers."

Acronis Backup Cloud is the world's only data protection solution specifically developed for service providers, hosters and cloud resellers, providing multi-tenant and multi-tier management capabilities and full protection of all customers' data, including computers, mobile devices, Microsoft 365 accounts, websites, and applications - physical and virtual, local and cloud.

According to the Hosting and Cloud Study 2017 conducted by 451 Research and released by Microsoft last month, backup and recovery services hold the top position among the managed services used by organizations last year. SherWeb's partners and service providers are in a prime position to protect their customers' data and build their business with SherWeb's support and Acronis' innovative technology.

"We are delighted that SherWeb chose to add Acronis Backup Cloud to their portfolio. It is the only solution that was purpose built for service providers from the ground up," said John Zanni, Chief Marketing Officer, Acronis. "Built on the award-winning Acronis hybrid cloud architecture SherWeb now has a leading-edge platform to capture new business by providing the much-needed data protection services to their customers."
