Scale Computing CEO, Jeff Ready and Director of Solutions at elevITy, Paul Hager will deliver a conversation entitled, “Delivering Real-world Business Resilience for Secure Digital Transformation.” They will discuss why business resilience is essential to organizations; why disaster recovery and backup plans are not enough; and how Scale Computing and Acronis partners and MSPs can deliver integrated, easy-to-use solutions for their customers to protect against today’s cyber threats.

“In an increasingly digital world with ever-present threats that can disrupt business operations, every organization should make business resilience an essential part of their operations. With a desire and focus on digital transformation, it’s important to consider how other areas such as business resilience will need to be transformed as well,” Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder, Scale Computing.

“These challenging times underscore the need for comprehensive cyber protection, which is why providing a virtual venue where thought leaders can share their expertise is more important than ever,” said Acronis Founder and CEO Serguei “SB” Beloussov. “Our goal for the 2020 Summit is to empower anyone with an interest in cyber protection – resellers, service providers, ISVs, and enterprise IT – so their organizations can benefit from greater protection and potential business opportunities.
