GFI® Software Creates New Revenue Opportunity for Managed Services Providers with Managed Cloud Backup
CLEARWATER, FL, May 1, 2012 –/BackupReview.info/– GFI Software today announced the addition of GFI MAX Managed Online Backup™ to the GFI MAX RemoteManagement™ managed services platform. The new service enables managed services providers (MSPs) to add secure data backup to the managed services they can offer customers at a time when demand for online backup continues to rise.
Businesses are increasingly turning to online backup as the importance of securely stored data increases and natural disasters continue to make headlines. In addition to business continuity benefits, companies that embrace cloud storage can better manage the cost and time needed for data recovery in the event of a disaster. A recent report from Gartner predicts that “HDD costs will increase by 5% to 20% in 2012″(1) in the wake of the recent flooding in Thailand which decimated a large portion of the world’s ability to manufacture hard drives.
These costs combined with the exponential growth in the amount of data that businesses need to store are forcing companies to seek new ways to manage their IT costs without sacrificing storage capabilities, which creates new opportunities for MSPs offering managed online backup. In fact, a recent survey of GFI MAX customers conducted at GFI’s global partner conferences found that MSPs expect online backup services to be the most widely adopted via the cloud in the new year.
“Cloud-based backup is a natural complement to the services that our MSP partners provide through the GFI MAX platform,” said Dr. Alistair Forbes, general manager of the GFI MAX Business Unit, GFI Software. “This is our fourth major technology integration into the platform maximizing the breadth of services that our partners can manage for their customers. GFI MAX Managed Online Backup allows them to increase their revenue by providing competitively priced, highly efficient, encrypted backup just as more and more customers look to adopt cloud services.”
Features and benefits of GFI MAX Managed Online Backup include:
A Growing Array Of Managed Services
