In the latest move to continually increase choice, flexibility, and scale opportunities to its partners, this week AppXite announced a new strategic partnership with Acronis and launched an end-to-end service integration of Acronis’ Cyber Protect Cloud and AppXite – a multi-tier financial operations and multi-cloud e-commerce platform. This new integration gives partners, both managed service providers and resellers, the opportunity to transact and scale cyber protection services and optimize their operations with a cohesive workflow across tailoring usage-based offerings, delivery, and billing meanwhile providing expanded access to security products and self-service for their end customers.
The partnership was pursued based on partner and customer requests to expand the product portfolio and ensure operational excellence hand in hand with existing AppXite vendor integrations such as Microsoft, Google, Adobe, AWS, IBM, and others.
There’s a definite benefit offered by this native integration that will help Acronis partners scale their cyber protection business and drive additional revenue. Partners can now effectively bundle a variety of Acronis features with their own services, design custom packages, manage, and bill Acronis Cyber Protect services with unmatched ease while increasing productivity and decreasing complexity inherent in usage-based pricing.
“We are all aware of the complex nature of SaaS vendor pricing structures, particularly when dealing with usage-based pricing models – a vast array of SKUs, pricing tiers, product editions, billing modes, price dependency on end-customer infrastructure, etc. AppXite has crafted one of the most exceptional integrations in the market, effectively concealing this complexity within the backend logic. This strategic approach ensures that both our partners and end-customers can savor a streamlined and effortless product configuration and purchasing experience.” says Nicolas Albana, CEO of AppXite.
Managed service providers (MSPs) stand to gain a significant advantage by conveniently bundling their own service with Acronis offerings and designing custom packages with different billing combinations for every single SKU. This gives freedom and flexibility for them to build the most advanced offerings to satisfy the customer’s needs. It will help partners overcome the challenges they face and strengthen their security services portfolio with end-to-end service integration of the AppXite platform and Acronis Cyber Cloud.
Meanwhile, sellers can grow their catalog with cyber protection services and acquire new customer segments. With Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, sellers can now deliver integrated backup, disaster recovery, cybersecurity, and endpoint management at scale, while preserving margins and streamlining business operations with powerful automation capabilities and broad vendor integrations.
AppXite provides a customizable storefront or marketplace integrated with Acronis, empowering partners to enhance the customer journey and stand out in a competitive landscape. Customers can take advantage of the seamless experience of purchasing the entire service in an automated way without any hassles or complications. These options allow customers and partners to optimize their services precisely to business requirements and individual preferences.
“Comprehensive cyber protection is essential to the health of any organization. Service providers, cloud aggregators, and resellers should be highly motivated to deliver it — but with so much to manage already and the complex structure of usage-based pricing, they need a streamlined way to fit this goal into their existing workflows. The level of automation and intelligence of AppXite integration makes it much simpler for Acronis partners to tailor their offerings, easily deploy, bill, and manage Acronis’ cyber protection services.” Peter Makarov, Director Technology Partner Program at Acronis.
