The new distribution partnership comes on the heels of several new product announcements from Acronis, such as the rollout of Acronis Cyber Cloud 8.0, as well as a recently revamped partner program and $10 million investment in its Service Provider Incentive Program made possible by a recent $147 million investment by Goldman Sachs, announced in September.
“Ingram Micro is an important ally in our efforts to promote our vision of modern cyber protection, and this renewed relationship will enable even more service providers to deliver innovative, effective, affordable solutions to their customers,” said Serguei Beloussov, founder and executive officer at, Acronis.“With traditional data protection and cybersecurity solutions failing to meet modern data challenges, the demand for true cyber protection continues to grow. Service providers now face a lucrative opportunity, and Acronis and Ingram Micro can help them leverage that opportunity.”
