CT4 signs UK distribution deal with Exertis Partners

08 September 2022

Australian-based global SaaS company, CT4, today announced a partnership agreement with global tech supplier Exertis Partners for the distribution of its Microsoft 365 data-protection product, Cirrus, in the United Kingdom.

Cirrus offers businesses of all sizes protection against the escalating rates of malware and ransomware cases, accidental deletion and data corruption. This comes at a time when ransomware attacks in the UK are becoming more regular and targeted.

"Malware and ransomware are a blight on businesses worldwide and the problem continues to escalate. In the UK alone, 39% of businesses have identified a cyber attack in the last 12 months according to a report from the UK government.  Cirrus provides an affordable, effective automated back-up of all Microsoft 365 data, one of the most used business tools in the world,’’ Chief Technology Officer for CT4, Dan Pearson, said.

"The increase in remote working has also exacerbated the problem, with ever more sophisticated attack vectors used by those wishing to do harm to businesses, steal valuable IP, or demand money in exchange for unblocking access to critical apps,’’ he continued.

Exertis is one of the world’s largest and fastest growing technology distribution and specialist service providers.

Exertis Cloud Services Director, Rik Hubbard, said: “We are thrilled to be distributing CT4’s SaaS solutions Cirrus data protection product. Cirrus forms a key part of helping our partners protect their customers’ Microsoft 365 data against accidental loss or malicious actors. The All You Can Eat value of the service makes this a simple bolt on to any user licence.”
