Exeed will distribute the award-winning Acronis True Image consumer backup solution, and will provide training, support, and marketing assistance to retailers, resellers, and business partners, enabling them to reach home and SOHO users with the world’s most complete, easy, and cost effective data protection solution

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – Feb. 9, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Acronis, a global leader in hybrid-cloud data protection and storage is proud to announce a new partnership with New Zealand’s leading IT distribution company, Exeed to bring the new generation data protection technology to ANZ home users and small office home office (SOHO) customers.

Exeed will use its distribution muscle to put the world’s most innovative personal backup solution, Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation, on the shelves of New Zealand and Australian stores and bundle it with other software and hardware products. Exeed will provide training, support, and marketing assistance to enable retailers, business partners, and resellers to meet the growing demand for data protection services in the home user and SOHO space.

A recent survey revealed a strong need for an effective data protection solution in this market space. In Australia, 72% of the respondents (one percent higher than the global average) said that they worry about the safety of their data, while 53% said wouldn’t know how to restore personal data if it’s lost. Moreover, 56% said they were not aware of ransomware, the most aggressive cyber security threat the world is facing today. Exceed will distribute Acronis data protection technology which meets this need in the most complete, easy, and cost efficient way.

“Due to Exeed’s growing retail presence in New Zealand and Australia, we see a great opportunity out there to attack with a fantastic backup product. There is nothing else like this on the market while there is a clear need for easy tools to protect customers’ data. Backup is very valuable. It doesn’t take more than one incident to understand that a small fee you pay for an Acronis True Image license is nothing compared to hundreds or thousands of dollars you would lose recovering data without a backup,” said Justin Tye, Managing Director of Exeed Limited.

Acronis True Image is the fastest and most complete personal backup solution, outperforming the closest competition by more than two times (based on internal tests, external test results will be released separately). It protects data on Windows and Mac computers, iOS and Android mobile devices, and Facebook social network accounts. Acronis True Image delivers ultimate data protection for personal and family data using AES 256 encryption and stores it in multiple destinations, including external drives, NAS devices, network shares, and the secure Acronis Cloud.

The latest update of this award-winning software, Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation, comes with Acronis Active Protection™ — active protection against ransomware attacks on user data, Acronis Notary™— blockchain-based data certification and verification capabilities — and Acronis ASign™ — the most consumer-friendly electronic document signing service, making it the first and only backup solution in the global market to introduce Active Protection technology to detect and prevent ransomware attacks in real-time, automatically recover all data from the backup, self-protect backups and the backup application.

“Exeed is very pleased to have been selected by Acronis to distribute the True Image personal backup solution,” said Justin Tye, Managing Director of Exeed. “We believe that consumer data loss protection is vital today as home users become more mobile and are increasingly at risk of losing precious data from theft, damage or viruses. Acronis True Image provides an easy to use, cost effective solution for users on laptops, PC and mobile devices. Exeed has a large consumer device business so it made perfect sense to us to partner with Acronis to offer a fast backup solution to make it easy for customers to keep all their data safe and in one place. We like the cross platform capability of True Image supporting Windows, Mac, IOS, Android & Facebook, it complements our hardware brands nicely. We are looking forward to working with Acronis and helping them to develop their retail business via our experienced retail sales organisation.”

“We are excited to form a new partnership with an established IT distributor in the ANZ market. It’s a major step forward in promoting Acronis’ consumer products in the region and Acronis will support Exeed’s efforts in making it easy for customers to protect their digital memories and important documents,” said Tony Drewitt, General Manager Acronis ANZ.
