Virtual1 rated number 1 in #CyberFit Cloud Transformation

Virtual1's recognition at this week's Acronis #CyberFit Partners Awards.

This week, in light of an unprecedented year, Virtual1 were recognised at The Acronis #CyberFit Partners Awards, as winners in Cloud Transformation.

The #CyberFit Awards acknowledge the outstanding work of Acronis’ partners, and their contribution to continued success in the global market.

Recognising the rapid growth in demand for not just Backup Solutions, but also Cyber Security and Disaster Recovery, Virtual1 moved to take full advantage of Acronis’s Cyber Cloud infrastructure and product suite.

As recognised market leaders in this area, the Acronis infrastructure has given Virtual1 access to the latest Acronis features and functionality, to be able to offer more complete, integrated and secure data services to customers. Virtual1 has now enhanced its existing BackupCloud product set with the Disaster Recovery and Cyber Protect functionality.

Virtual1 hosted a number of highly successful webinars for their Partners to discuss the benefits of these latest offerings, which saw unrivalled attendance and has contributed to a 25% revenue growth over the last 6 months.

Acronis’ VP of Northern Europe, Ronan commented on the achievement:

"The global pandemic has brought about obvious challenges to businesses. Equally, it has also brought significant opportunities, which is particularly true for Cloud-focused partners. With a large proportion of today’s workforce working remotely they need solutions which protect them from the rising risk of malicious cyber criminals. Tom O’Hagan and his team at Virtual1 were quick to see the opportunity of the Acronis Cyber Protect offering, protecting endpoints from Ransomware, Cryptojacking, adding RMM and more. Their adoption has led to significant growth for Virtual1 and their partners over the last seven months and we are now pleased to offer them the 2020 #Cyberfit Cloud Transformation award. Well done Virtual1!"
