Conshohocken, PA, United States, 2007/03/01 - IPR International, a leader in managed data protection and recovery services, today announced that the company has achieved 300% growth in the reseller channel in 2006 as a result of increased interest in business continuity and disaster recovery.
Enabling Service Providers to Offer Affordable Disaster Recovery Services to SMBs
IPR International, a leader in managed data protection and recovery services, today announced that the company has achieved 300 percent growth in the reseller channel in 2006 as a result of increased interest in business continuity and disaster recovery services from telecommunications service providers, CLECs and other technology service providers.
IPR International’s reseller program enables companies that currently provide telephone, Internet or technology services to private label IPR’s online data backup services to several hundred small to midsized customers. Just two years ago this type of sophisticated online backup was available only to enterprise level companies who could afford to contract for large volumes of data backup. By aggregating many of their clients together, these resellers get the volume discounts and pass part of the savings on to their clients, while building a better suite of services to offer their customers and generating higher monthly recurring revenues for their own company.
“Companies large and small recognize that data protection is a must have for the 21st century. Times have changed and threats to data – from natural disasters, terrorism, hackers, identity theft and simple human error – surround us,” said Michael Emmi, Chairman and CEO of IPR International. “IPR’s services fill an important gap in the market - offering small to midsized companies a cost effective way protect their mission-critical data through service providers they know and trust. We look forward to supporting our service provider partners in this rapidly growing market.”
IPR’s disaster recovery and business continuity services offer reliable online disk-to-disk-to-disk backup and recovery for data. Using state-of-the-art technology and proven best practices, the services automatically transmit encrypted data through a Virtual Private Network (VPN) from the client’s location to IPR’s data centers to ensure that data is protected and recoverable 24x7x365. This data is copied to yet another secure data center, ensuring that two protected copies of are available to clients through the Internet, at any time of day or night, from any location in the world. Individual files and folders can be retrieved with a simple point and click. In addition, backup windows are significantly reduced, usually by 50 percent or more, allowing the IT staff to focus on more productive core projects.
“We’ve seen great interest in data protection and disaster recovery from our customers,” said Guy Fardone, Executive Vice President and General Manager of ATX Communications. “With ever increasing compliance issues and even smaller scale every day data interruptions, data protection is no longer just for big companies. Partnering with IPR allows us to offer our clients a robust data protection strategy with the assurance that they can recover their data within minutes over the Internet for a fraction of what they would pay using other services or doing it themselves. These services have helped numerous clients successfully protect their data and their businesses over the past several years.“
