With Acronis, businesses can create reliable backups that are easily available, control who has visibility and access to their data, have undeniable proof of their data's authenticity, and protect their data, applications, and systems against cyberattacks with an integrated, artificial intelligence-based defense.

Kaki will assist Japanese partners and customers with technology selection, help service providers maximize the use of Acronis Cyber Cloud (formerly Acronis Data Cloud), promote the recently-announced Acronis Cyber Platform to the OEM and developers' community, and continue working with businesses and enterprises on optimizing their data management tasks. In the consumer space, Kaki will drive accelerated adoption of personal cyber protection solutions such as Acronis True Image.

Kaki has a deep understanding of the Japanese IT industry and established relationships with major local system integrators. He has a proven track record of working with channels to deliver significant growth. Prior to joining Acronis, Kaki was a Channel Sales Director with Box Japan, and was responsible for the whole Japanese channel operations for F5 Networks Japan. Kaki has also held the position of President at Clearswift and Director of Consumer Business at McAffee, where he consistently exceeded his set targets.
