International data security and business recovery specialist Attix5 has joined forces with Internet Solutions (IS) to supply it with a cloud backup solution that has been incorporated into the IS Ignite SME business offering.
Designed to enable SMEs to do business more efficiently, Ignite manages the internet requirements of business owners so they can focus on driving their organisational strategy.
“We provided IS with the business recovery technology to bundle a comprehensive cloud backup solution with Ignite. Given the large amounts of data being generated by companies on a daily basis, they need to have the peace of mind that should the worst happens their data will always be safe,” says Phillip de Bruyn, GM of product management at Attix5.
This is where the experience of Attix5 in backup and disaster recovery attracted the attention of IS. The ease of use of the technology made it a perfect fit for what it wanted to achieve with the Ignite value proposition. Often, smaller organisations are intimidated by backup and recovery processes but the customisability of the Attix5 solution, meant IS could easily incorporate it into Ignite and create a more complete offering for SMEs.
“Our technology has been developed in such a way that we can plug into the back-end systems of our clients and develop a comprehensive backup and recovery offering to supplement their existing framework. There is therefore no need to overhaul the entire back-end as our specialist team of developers and technicians work closely with the customer to ensure as smooth a process as possible,” says de Bruyn.
Further enhancing the IS offering, is the fact that the Attix5 technology allows for backups to run from a central point on a daily or weekly basis. Each individual in the organisation will be able to access a console from which to manage this schedule. Should disaster strike, the Attix5 Pro console lets users quickly and conveniently browse and select the files that need to be restored.
Attix5 offers extensive back-end methods to plug in to a portal and scale according to the growth needs of the client. It also features a self-help system and offers a click to buy self-service for clients so the company does not need to be concerned about call centres.
“As a trusted solutions provider, we want to empower our partners (like IS) with technology that enables them to not only drive efficiency but make money with our products,” concludes de Bruyn.
