DataFort Expands Channel Offering with New Software

 ‘Dealer Control Panel’ Offers Resellers Enhanced Remote Management Features

Release date: September 2003

DataFort, provider of effortless off-site data backup services, today announces the launch of a web-based control panel developed specifically for the channel. The new software integrates seamlessly with DataFort 3 (the company’s award-winning backup solution), allowing channel partners to remotely manage their client’s DataFort accounts.

With detailed information on the operating condition of the customer’s computer, backup history, network and IP status (heartbeat-polling), the dealer control panel enables resellers to offer a more comprehensive service while reducing the need for costly on-site visits. The web-based control panel uses a secure connection and will offer ‘management’ functionality including the ability to initiate backup and recovery events remotely.

“In these uncertain times, more and more companies are choosing managed backup services as an alternative to in- house hardware solutions that can prove costly and difficult to manage,” believes Marcie Terman, Business Development Manager at DataFort. “The new dealer control panel enables channel partners to manage backups from their offices, improving customer satisfaction while increasing the efficiency of their business. Partners can also use the diagnostic information gathered by the new software as part of their overall IT support services.”

The control panel, available to all DataFort resellers, delivers a backup service that enables end- users to automatically and securely backup entire e- mail systems and databases to high security data centres.

“DataFort offers one of the most secure, reliable and cost-effective business continuity solutions on the market;” explains Warren Lipman, Managing Director of Storm-IT, a DataFort channel partner. “The launch of the dealer control panel expands our managed backup service offering and will hopefully reduce the time and money spent managing these services on-site.”

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.
