Attix5 is one of the UK’s most trusted and reliable, cloud based back-up and recovery systems. And now, Stage2Data is committed to making it a game changer in the North American education market too.
Oakville, Ontario (PRWEB) January 19, 2012
This week Stage2Data, the exclusive Distributor for Attix5 in North America, announced that it is aggressively positioning Attix5 as the premier backup and recovery disk based solution for the North American education market.
The news follows confirmation in the UK of a significant deal between Attix5 and the London Grid for Learning (LGfL). The deal gives 65% of the UK schools access to Attix5 which is one of the UK’s most trusted and reliable, automated information back-up and restoration systems. This new partnership equates to a total of 3000+ schools and 65,000+ people whose sensitive data could now be protected by Attix5 products.
According to Jeff Collier, President of Stage2Data, "Attix5 dominates the UK education market and will soon dominate the North American education market because it is ideal for schools - Attix5 is easy to use, requires minimum administrative intervention, has security encryption built in as standard and, it also saves on internal resources and storage."
The private sector as a whole is under great pressure to ensure the data they hold is stored securely. Schools are not exempt from this and Stage2Data and Attix5 point to several examples of data breaches within schools in the last year.
Talking about the importance of protecting school data Mike Law, Chief Executive at Attix5 said:
“We are able to provide some of London’s most vulnerable citizens (children) with the most up-to-date, comprehensive data protection. Schools up and down the country are really starting to take data security seriously and I hope the rest of the public sector will follow suit.”
Echoing that message in North America is Jacques Swanepoel, the Stage2Data Chief Technical Officer who suggests that "Our education institutions are beginning to realize the weaknesses in their systems. With Attix5 in our suite of solutions we are able to deliver the best backup and recovery solution, superior student data security and substantial savings."
Stage2Data comes to the education market with an impressive track record. The company has experience working with Mohawk College, Niagara College, St. Clair Catholic District School Board, Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board as well as many others.
