  • J2 Global, Inc. (JCOM) Service Announces Fully Managed, Fully Monitored, Fully Restorable Backup Solution Offered To VARS And Resellers 0 comments
    Oct 19, 2012 6:44 PM | about stocks: JCOM

    KeeptItSafe, an online backup provider and branded service of j2 Global, recently announced its launch of a comprehensive service and support channel partner program in the U.S. The new service provides resellers and VARs with fully monitored and managed online backup services, wholesale pricing rates, re-brandable marketing and sales materials, 24/7 sales and tech support, and email marketing and sales coaching. KeepItSafe is among a short list of online backup and DR companies in the world that are ISO27001 certified.

    This announcement comes as big news for service providers new to selling backup services, as KeepItSafe's channel partner program in the U.S. paves the way to establish a relationship with a fully managed and monitored online backup service with ISO27001, SSAE 16, and SOC 2 data certification. Additionally, KeepItSafe offers migration programs for online backup partners who may not be happy with their current provider and want to transition to a fully monitored and managed online backup solution.

    "The launch of our channel partner program in the U.S. reinforces the fact that the KeepItSafe online backup service is fully equipped and ready to bring a superior level of service to both VARs and resellers of online backup services," said Jonathan Crowe, technical director of KeepItSafe. "By offering comprehensive sales, marketing and technical support, in addition to a fully managed and monitored backup solution, the KeepItSafe Channel Partner program goes beyond what most VARs and resellers receive from other backup services providers. KeepItSafe channel partners can realize higher margins with less effort, while their customers gain more secure and reliable backup of critical data."

    Key to KeepItSafe's success is the company's ability to differentiate itself from competitors. Many backup providers offer services that require internal management, which can lead to confusion as to who is responsible for managing and monitoring the backup process. However, KeepItSafe differs from these backup providers by installing, monitoring, and managing the service for customers, helping eliminate the confusion that can come from co-managed services. And, while many companies are moving to hybrid backup systems - one for backing up physical servers, and one for virtual backup services - KeepItSafe supports both in a single offering.

    KeepItSafe is backed by the financial and IT resources of j2 Global, a $1.45-billion market cap publicly traded company and provider of cloud services for businesses. Founded in 1995, j2 Global has been recognized in 2012 with numerous awards, including recent listing on the prestigious InformationWeek 500 list, an annual ranking of the most innovative companies employing information technology in their businesses.
