With this development, the technology company will prolong to be the team’s official cyber security partner.
The partnership renewal also onboarded Ingram Micro Cloud, the global technology distributor and delivery provider of Acronis as the delivering partner.
This advancement gives the club the privilege of utilising Acronis and Ingram Micro Cloud’s vast experience in providing creative solutions for worldwide sports entities. In addition, the Gunners also have access to a variety of offerings committed to safeguarding data recovery and backup processes.
Recently, Acronis also signed an extension with the defending Premier League champions, Manchester City.
The club’s Chief Commercial Officer, Juliet Slot, said, “We’re excited to extend our partnership with Acronis and bolster our relationship by integrating Ingram Micro Cloud as the delivery partner.
“Since 2018, Acronis has helped us protect our data and create operational efficiencies across the club. We’re grateful for their fantastic support in this crucial area and we’re pleased to be building on the great work we’ve done together.”
Ronan McCurtin, Acronis VP of Sales Europe, Israel and Turkey said, “A healthy football team needs healthy protection, and we’re proud that Arsenal chose us as their cyber protection provider.
“While the fans are roaring with excitement at the games, we’ll be there behind the scenes making sure everything runs smoothly and ensuring their sensitive data is safe in our hands.”
Ovidiu Gherghel, Director Cloud & Cyber Security, UK&I Ingram Micro, commented, “We have seen rapid adoption of technology in sports, both on and off the pitch. At Ingram Micro Cloud, we’re constantly exploring how we can push the boundaries within the industry but the key is delivering unique experiences for both fans and athletes.
“Whether that’s getting the big decisions right, or helping teams and individuals hit peak performance, we want to be standing beside them when they reach their goal. We are thrilled to once again be partnering with Acronis and look forward to sharing our expertise with them and Arsenal.”
In the last week of July, ahead of the commencement of the ongoing season of the English top flight, Arsenal also signed a deal with PRIME.
On the field, Arsenal had a positive start to their new Premier League season as they played two games so far and won both of them. The club will be next seen in action on Saturday, August 20 against AFC Bournemouth.
