D&H Distributing and Acronis empower service providers through new cyber protection partnership

IT distributor to equip partners with access to Acronis Cyber Cloud, the comprehensive cyber protection platform for service providers

BURLINGTON, Massachusetts, January 21, 2020 - D&H Distributing, a leading provider of SMB and consumer technologies to the North American high-tech channel, today announced a new partnership with Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection. The partnership makes Acronis Cyber Cloud, a platform that enables service providers to deliver cyber protection solutions, available through the D&H Cloud Marketplace.

As a result of the new alliance, D&H partners can offer services based on a comprehensive range of cyber protection solutions, including backup, disaster recovery, AI-enhanced anti-malware, endpoint security and management tools, file sync and share, and blockchain-based file notarization and e-signature services - all of which are managed via a single console.

"Acronis' high-quality, cloud-based backup and cybersecurity software meets a critical need to secure the many remote and hybrid networks that had become so prominent in 2020," said Jason Bystrak, Vice President of D&H's Cloud and Services Business Unit. "Acronis is a savvy addition to our Cloud Solutions portfolio, and a terrific choice for partners looking to outfit their end-users with sophisticated, secure networks in both their homes and offices."

The single platform approach means D&H partners will be able to provision and administer their Acronis licensing from one place, simplifying their onboarding, daily operations, and reporting. They can enhance their clients' existing services by adding several best-of-breed solutions, while benefiting from consolidated billing for all of the products and services they get from the D&H Cloud Marketplace.

"In the wake of the fast-paced changes in their IT requirements, organizations are seeking modern solutions to modern protection challenges, which creates tremendous opportunities for service providers who offer in-demand cyber protection services," said Pat Hurley, Acronis Vice President and General Manager, Americas. "The high-touch relationships that D&H Distributing enjoys with their partners means they understand this shift, and they're acting proactively to meet that demand. That kind of commitment makes them a perfect complement to our existing network of North American cloud distributors, and we look forward to working with D&H so their partners can strengthen their services with easy, efficient, secure, and profitable cyber protection solutions."
