Dropsuite is helmed by former Google and Dell executive Charif Elansari and backed by top-tier global investors including 500 Startups and Hatcher. In April, Singapore’s Dropsuite expanded into the North American and Australian markets, gearing up for its upcoming listing on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX).
The LeaderTelecom deal follows similarly successful deals with some of the biggest names in the tech industry, including Ingram Micro (the world’s largest distributor of computer and technology products), GoDaddy (the world’s largest hosting company), Blacknight Solutions (the #1 hosting company in Ireland), GMO Internet (the #1 hosting company in Japan), HostPapa (the #1 hosting company in Canada), and Singtel (the #1 telco in Singapore). It also comes months after Dropsuite rebranded from Dropmysite.
By integrating Dropsuite’s range of cloud-based back-up solutions, LeaderTelecom can expand its service offerings to better protect its clients’ most important asset: their data. It welcomes Dropsuite to its list of best-in-class global partners including Comodo, Entrust, and Symantec.
Dropsuite provides a fully-automated and secure platform that enables SMEs to back-up and restore website, email, mobile and server data. Its range of cloud-based back-up products and services include Dropmysite (website and database back-up), Dropmyemail (email backup and archiving), Dropmymobile (mobile data back-up), and DSE Server Backup (file-based server back-up).
Ridley Ruth, chief operating officer of Dropsuite said, “LeaderTelecom is a European market leader in online security. It will deliver best-in-class, one-click back-up solutions to its clients, not just in Europe but to its fast-growing client base around the world. LeaderTelecom’s clients trust it as their premium telecom service provider of choice, and we’re delighted to now be a part of that process.”
Aleksei Ivanov, founder and managing director at LeaderTelecom, said, “Since (it was) founded in 2012, LeaderTelecom has been at the forefront of the market by offering cutting-edge technology solutions from its painstaking process of choosing great partners. We are delighted to add Dropsuite to that list of world-class partners as we incorporate its simple and easy one-click cloud back-up solutions alongside our offerings. It also positions us favourably to tap into the European and global data protection and recovery markets.”
