Turrito Networks is extending its cloud services portfolio for SMEs, by becoming a strategic partner for global enterprise cloud backup provider, Redstor. The partnership, according to both firms, comes at a time when SMEs are becoming increasingly vulnerable to ransomware attacks and require a reliable backup strategy.
¨There is a growing concern that many local SMEs are taking a ‘wait and see’ approach to ransomware – and are consequently placing their businesses at significant risk. They are just as vulnerable, if not more so, than the bigger corporations and organisations that have very publicly come under attack,¨ said Louis Jardim, co-founder and commercial director for Turrito Networks,
As revealed by the firm, the Redstor cloud backup offered by Turrito Networks is billed on a pure per gig basis, allowing SMEs to pay for what they use, on a month-to-month basis and does not require the customer to have an existing backup solution in place.
¨Our partnership with Redstor is built on a growing need for SMEs to have reliable, enterprise-grade cloud backup and data management capabilities, with pricing that matches their budgets,¨ added Jardim.
“With Turrito focussing their attention on the SME market, Redstor saw the opportunity to broaden their reach beyond enterprise, by joining forces with a trusted provider of hosting, security & communication services.”, said Heidi Weyers, General Manager for Sales in SA
Redstor´s cloud services, as stated by the firm, incorporate best of breed technologies, which are reviewed continuously to ensure that it remains at the forefront of innovation and global best practice for backup, disaster recovery and archiving. It is this focus on innovation that provides customers with the peace of mind that their data is safe and effectively backed up.
Jardim concluded by saying: ¨This partnership is a further demonstration of our continued focus on finding world class solutions for local SMEs. We are committed to providing them with value driven, fully managed services that allow them to focus on running their business, while we take care of the rest.¨
