Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, and Team Qhubeka ASSOS, Africa’s UCI WorldTour cycling team, today announced the Official Cyber Protection Partnership which will be supported by Pan-European cloud services distributor, Resello.
Through this partnership, Acronis and Resello will provide Team Qhubeka ASSOS with award-winning cyber protection technology.
“As a cycling team at the pinnacle of the sport we are a high-performance sporting organisation, but it’s our unique purpose that sets us apart as we race to change lives with bicycles. As an organization that races across the globe over 250 days a year, we are constantly in motion; and by working together with Acronis and their distribution partner Resello, we have a great shared opportunity to showcase the ultimate in integrated data protection and cybersecurity solutions. Our team is underpinned by the philosophy of Ubuntu – I am because we are – and this valued partnership is yet another opportunity to highlight the platform that our team is able to provide in making a meaningful, positive, impact in the world. As a cloud services distributor, we are very excited to work together with Team Qhubeka ASSOS and Acronis to progress and achieve wins together.”Douglas Ryder, Founder, Team Qhubeka ASSOS
“Professional cycling is a high-performance sport where the whole team has to work together to maximize results such as the victories achieved during the Giro d’Italia, just as cyber protection requires an integrated solution to provide superior protection. That is why we are very excited to welcome Resello as our latest Acronis #CyberFit Cloud Distribution Partner. We are proud to support Team Qhubeka ASSOS to achieve success together.”Ronan McCurtin, Acronis VP Europe, Turkey, and Israel
As Africa’s only UCI WorldTour team, Team Qhubeka ASSOS races for something greater than just victories. Their long-standing partnership with the Qhubeka Charity and its #BicyclesChangeLives campaign ensures people in Africa move forward with the help of a bicycle, improving access to schools, clinics and jobs. Moving forward Qhubeka and Acronis will also further collaborate on providing schoolchildren in South Africa with bicycles through the Acronis Cyber Foundation Schools Initiative.
“As a cloud services distributor, we are very excited to work together with Team Qhubeka ASSOS and Acronis to progress and achieve wins together. Resello’s mission is to make “as-a-service” easy to understand, manage and sell. The more successful our partners are, the more successful we are. I guess in that sense we follow the same Ubuntu philosophy as Team Qhubeka ASSOS. Qhubeka ASSOS uses their service course in The Netherlands as their base of operations from which they support their riders challenging for wins and achieving victories all over Europe. Similarly, as a Pan-European cloud services distributor, we support partners and their customers all over Europe in achieving success with data protection and cybersecurity solutions such as Acronis Cyber Cloud.”Harald Nuij, Managing Director, Resello
