Michael Frisby, Vuzion Managing Director, writes …
I am delighted that Formula One World Championship team Williams Racing has announced that Vuzion is to be their Acronis #CyberFit Delivery Partner.
Williams and Acronis first partnered at the start of the 2018 F1 season with Acronis helping the team to manage growing volumes of data without compromising the security and flexibility mandated by the sport.
Williams has benefited from Acronis Cyber Protect since 2020 - Acronis’ unique AI-enhanced solution that integrates data protection with cybersecurity, to prevent cyberattack and helping the Williams team avoid downtime. Acronis uniquely combines automation and integration, ensuring the prevention, detection, response, recovery, and analysis needed to safeguard all workloads while streamlining protection efforts. Acronis technology is designed to address the safety, accessibility, privacy, authenticity, and security (SAPAS) challenges of modern organisations at the highest levels of business and competitive sport.
Tim Hunt, Chief Marketing Officer for Williams Racing, said: “We are delighted to welcome Vuzion to Williams as Acronis’ #CyberFit Delivery Partner. The values we share with Acronis, to push technology and innovation is pivotal to both parties. Introducing Vuzion as Acronis #CyberFit Delivery Partner helps drive continuous improvement that we are all working towards and I look forward to working with Vuzion as the team embarks on its next chapter.”
Jan-Jaap Jager, the Board Advisor and Chief Revenue Officer at Acronis added: “We are proud to support one of the most iconic F1 teams on the grid together with Vuzion. Motorsport depend on data-driven decisions in the office and on the track. With Vuzion’s support of our partnership, we’ll ensure Williams receives the best technology and service to maximise their #CyberFit potential.”
At the heart of Vuzion’s values, is a passion to be the best partner we can be each day for our vendors and resellers. We are only successful if our partners are successful! Our #Cyberfit Delivery Partnerships with Acronis and, by extension, our shared commitment to the Cyber Protection Partnership with Williams, are tied to that philosophy.
Just as Williams focus on finding every tenth of a second in performance, so Acronis and the team at Vuzion strive to enable our joint resellers to deliver the ultimate in cyber protection for customers and their data.
If you are an F1 fan, keep an eye out for the Vuzion logo, which will be displayed on the FW43B for eight races throughout the season, the first of which will be the Monaco Grand Prix, 20-23 May 2021, and which also happens to be Williams’ 750th F1 race.
