Northdoor plc, a London based IT consultancy, is one of the 500 certified partners; Enterprise Architect Neil Taylor explained why: “The Ontrack Data Recovery Partner Programme is an attractive proposition for Northdoor. Our customers get access to market-leading data recovery, data management and erasure services and Northdoor has quickly and easily expanded its offering to customers. The partner certification process is brief and educational, and we were able to start offering data recovery and erasure services almost immediately.”
Alastair Molyneux, Sales and Business Development Manager, Kroll Ontrack said: “We’re thrilled to have added 500 partners so quickly. It reflects the demand amongst businesses and consumers for critical IT products and services that solve real needs. The key to its success to date has been offering market-leading data recovery expertise and education in an easily digestible fashion. Our aim is to make this programme accessible to IT service firms of all sizes, from the high street to international enterprise. Data recovery is relevant to all users of IT; yet is often overlooked until the worst happens, leaving people unsure of where to turn for advice.”
Certified partner status can be achieved through online training that can be completed in less than an hour. Once this has been done IT consultants and advisors are equipped to offer quality data recovery services to their clients. The partner logs the data recovery request with technicians at Kroll Ontrack, who dispatch a courier to collect the media and deliver it to their lab and clean rooms in Epsom, Surrey where a full assessment can be made.
Whether it is important company data stored on traditional systems, virtualised systems or in the cloud, or simply archives of family photos, movies and music, the amount of valuable data is increasing exponentially. “The new programme brings education in easily-consumed modules. It enables partners to differentiate themselves from their competitors by building their knowledge of data management and how to help in various scenarios,” continued Molyneux.
Certified partners are able to offer Ontrack Data Recovery services to their clients, and will have access to a range of materials including video tutorials, partner discounts and additional monthly promotions. The many thousands of existing Kroll Ontrack partners will continue to receive preferential treatment but the benefits improve for those certifying with the new programme.
