Job Appointments | April 16, 2020 By:

Data protection firm Acronis has announced that Amy Luby has joined the company as its Channel Chief Evangelist.

Founded in 2003, Acronis sets the standard for cyber protection through its innovative backup, anti-ransomware, disaster recovery, storage, and enterprise file sync and share solutions. Enhanced by its award-winning AI-based active protection technology, blockchain-based data authentication and unique hybrid-cloud architecture, Acronis protects all data in any environment – including physical, virtual, cloud, mobile workloads and applications – all at a low and predictable cost.

Luby, a successful and recognized leader in the IT services channel, has an extensive record of achievement in channel sales program development and the recruitment of IT solution providers. She brings a strong technical expertise and domain knowledge in the rapidly evolving global managed, cloud and security services marketplace. Luby most recently worked at Carnegie Technologies, a cutting-edge IoT vendor, to establish and launch their Global MSP Channel Programs. Prior to that she held senior channel positions at Australia-based Sinefa, Trend Micro, and SYNNEX Corporation.

As Channel Chief Evangelist, Luby will help Acronis increase its awareness in the IT channel by demonstrating how incorporating cyber protection into their portfolio helps MSPs grow their business and reduce churn. One of her first tasks will be to introduce Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud to MSPs who are instrumental in serving vastly distributed remote infrastructure, thereby providing critical services to help their clients deal with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Amy Luby joins Acronis at the perfect time to support the IT channel, tasked with offering vastly improved services that deliver easy, efficient, and secure cyber protection while growing revenue in these challenging times,” said Gaidar Magdanurov, Acronis Chief Cyber Officer. “Amy will show service providers they have the ability to deliver the solutions that ensure their clients are #CyberFit and ready to face any new threats to their data, applications, and systems.”

“The need for the MSP community to dramatically upgrade the products and services they offer to clients has never been more stark or urgent than it is today, given the tremendous advances in cyber protection that Acronis continues innovating and advancing,” said Luby. “An enormous opportunity is available to the IT channel to both simplify and strengthen their cyber protection offerings, enabling them to increase revenue, decrease costs, simplify licensing and become indispensable partners to their clients. I am beyond excited at the opportunity. Channel friends and partners – expect to hear from me very soon.”
