Data Deposit Box Inc. (the “Company”) (CSE: DDB, OTC: DDBXF, Frankfurt: 2DD), a global provider of cloud backup and recovery technology, is pleased to announce a new partnership and initial Smart Storage order from UK based distributor Brigantia. The Company also received its 5th channel award of the year, capturing the Best New Creativity and Innovative show award at the ASCII SUMMIT event in Miami in June.
Over the past twenty years Brigantia has evolved into the largest subscription partner services community in the UK with hundreds of technology channel partners. As Data Deposit Box’s UK smart storage device channel distributor Brigantia will roll out the devices nationally over the next twelve months through their 700 reseller and MSP partners. Brigantia will offer the solution on three-year finance lease terms through their partners to the tens of thousands of micro and small business customers they service nationally. The agreement commenced with an initial order and a further order commitment.
As a new product to the market, DDB released several Smart Storage products to existing and new partners as evaluation systems which has resulted in the new distribution partnership and initial order from the UK based distributor.
“We are very excited about this launch and orders with Brigantia; something we will be replicating over the coming months,” said Troy Cheeseman, President of Data Deposit Box. “It is clear that our partners are very enthusiastic to see our product come to market. We are offering the industry’s first “all in one” data continuity system, a complete solution in a box, where bare-metal recovery technology, file technology and direct to API technology functions within one simple system, via one intuitive partner portal. Our partners can take full advantage of a complete suite of products, services and features without having to worry about deploying agents or additional expenses,” offers Cheeseman.
“…we see the DDB Smart Storage devices as an excellent way of providing a cost effect backup solution to our partner’s business customers. The functionality offered by DDB and the pricing we can offer for the devices on easy leasing terms removes the final reservations for business end users to move away from tapes and other media storage solutions as well as removing the capital cost objection. With the DDB BMR service going live in July we know we are on to a winner with DDB,” Wrote Iain Shaw, Brigantia Commercial Director.
In addition to the Company’s new relationship and smart storage bulk order, Data Deposit Box is proud to have received its 5th channel award of the year, winning the Best Creativity and Innovation award at the Miami ASCII Summit in June 2016. Over 170 registered partners attended the show and evaluated over 32 cloud industry vendor solutions (including Data Deposit Box cloud backup and recovery competitors Datto, Carbonite, and StorageCraft) and the Managed Services Partners at the show awarded the DDB suite of services the best innovative industry solution.
“Data Deposit Box has focused our new service offering based on one (1) simple principle; offer a complete data continuity solution that is designed and priced for the Small to Medium Business, globally,” say Cheeseman. “This award is an industry and partner acknowledgment that our product, with features and price is at the right target for our partners. We thank every partner at the Miami show for this award.”
Data Deposit Box plans to attend the remaining four (4) ASCII Summit, two (2) SMB Channel Forum and ChannelNext events throughout the US and Canada over the remaining year.
The Company also reports that effective June 28, 2016, the Company’s Chief Technical Officer Rob Puzzuoli, ceased to be employed by the Company.
“We’d like to thank Mr. Puzzuoli for his hard work and service to the Company, and we wish him the best in his future endeavors,” said Troy Cheeseman, President and COO.
