DataFort Provides Resellers an Ongoing Revenue Stream from a Single Sale

Off-Site Storage and Back-up Expert Offers Resellers 20% of the Service Revenue in New Channel Programme

Release date: May 2002

DataFort, the provider of effortless off-site data backup, has today announced the launch of a new channel programme offering resellers 20% of the ongoing revenue from licensing. This allows resellers to generate an ongoing revenue stream from a single sale, without the need to handle any of the ongoing service and support. In addition, hardware dealers who install DataFort software as standard on desktop and laptop computers, not only receive the commission on resulting sales, but will also be given an additional share of the revenue from DataFort.

"We are looking to recruit resellers, consultants and storage specialists, as well as hardware dealers and manufacturers. With most hardware-based back-up solutions only offering falling or shrinking margins and requiring some form of ongoing service and support, we think the DataFort service offers a far more compelling business argument for the reseller community," comments Gavin Smith, CEO of DataFort. "We are offering resellers a substantial split of the ongoing revenue stream for the service, without them having to get involved in any of the post-sales support. What's more, DataFort is the simplest back-up solution available and an easy sale."

Benefiting from its developers' wealth of experience in the development of high end back-up and disaster recovery within the financial sector, DataFort offers a simple user-friendly solution for off-site information storage. The software automatically gathers the data, compresses and encrypts it at source, before transferring it via an Internet connection to mirrored disk servers located in a secure data centre.

The data remains safely stored in an encrypted format, and can be easily retrieved over the Internet by any authorised end-user. The DataFort solution negates the need for employee intervention in the backup process, reducing cost and eliminating opportunities for human error. It also simplifies data retrieval, removing the reliance on trained staff to manage the process.


DataFort provides dependable secure off-site computer information storage with a focus on functionality and convenience for the end user. The company was founded in 2000 and is headquartered in Guildford, UK and New York, USA. It’s software and services are used by thousands of businesses worldwide - ranging from small SMEs and schools through to quoted companies and local government. Every hour of every day someone, somewhere backs up with DataFort.
