CrashPlan Announces New U.S. Distribution Agreement with Ingram Micro’s Emerging Business Group

CrashPlan, the authority on secure, scalable, straightforward data backup, today announced it has signed a distribution agreement with Ingram Micro Inc. and its Emerging Business Group (EBG) to distribute cloud backup solutions to Ingram Micro’ s extensive network of channel partners in the U.S.

“CrashPlan recognizes the immense value of the IT channel, and our new agreement with Ingram Micro enables us to build greater awareness for and extend our comprehensive cloud backup and security offering to a wider base of U.S. partners and their customers,” said Everett Brooks, Director of Channel Sales at CrashPlan. “From data breaches and stolen laptops to ransomware attacks, or data migration, CrashPlan is a simple yet powerful solution that helps channel partners and organizations securely migrate their data and recover from data loss incidents, so they can resume business operations quickly and with confidence.”

Under the new agreement, Ingram Micro will help CrashPlan connect with U.S.-based partners and provide a platform for enabling value-added resellers (VARs) as well as managed service providers (MSPs) and managed security service providers (MSSPs) on its data backup solutions, which offer notable features including:

  • Automatic, continuous protection without the need for intervention
  • Unlimited storage with no file size or quantity restrictions
  • Ability to restore to another device or web-browser
  • 256-bit AES encryption in-transit and at rest with configurable key escrow support compliance needs
  • Customizable file retention and control over how often new versions are backed up and how long deleted files are kept

“Ingram Micro’s Emerging Business Group plays a pivotal role as the go-to team for recognizing and engaging with new and emerging channel-ready technology vendors including CrashPlan,” said Donald Scott, Director, Emerging Business Group, Advanced Solutions, Ingram Micro. “VARs, MSPs and MSSPs want and need simple, easy-to-implement and reliable technology solutions to the complex and growing challenges facing today’s businesses. We’re excited to welcome CrashPlan’s straightforward data backup and security solutions to our expansive portfolio.”
