Acronis and partner score football club cyber deal

Southampton Football Club has renewed its cyber security services partnership with Acronis and channel partner Tailor Made Technologies (TMT).

Under the agreement, TMT will be providing the club with a full suite of Acronis cyber protection solutions, to protect the team's data assets and optimise data workflow.

The club’s director of IT, Huw Fielding, said: “Global organisations like ours often come under fire from cyber attacks targeting our sensitive data, including information on thousands of fans. Protecting the data we have been entrusted with is a significant priority for us, and we have confidence that Acronis' solution, delivered by Tailor Made Technologies, will help us do so.”

TMT is the Official Acronis Delivery Partner. Darren Scott-Healey, CEO at TMT, said: “As a lifelong Southampton fan, I’m obviously pleased to announce this partnership as their Acronis CyberFit Partner. It is a great opportunity for us to leverage our industry-leading expertise, local focus, and technical support to help the club defend its operations, enhance its performance and push for promotion [from the Championship to the Premier League].”
