Complete I.T. (CIT), a Swindon managed services provider (MSP), has been recognised as international firm Datto’s European partner of the year for 2015.

Sales of Datto’s data protection products have spearheaded growth for CIT, which is located in Shrivenham Hundred Business Park, and has recently opened new premises in London and Bristol, bringing its UK presence to six offices in total.

Founded in 2007, Datto provides business continuity solutions to more than five million customers and thousands of partners worldwide.

Datto is a provider of data backup, recovery and business continuity systems, and celebrated Complete I.T.’s strong sales performance at its annual partner conference, by awarding them with 2015 Partner of the Year.

Datto’s Andrew Stuart, Managing Director, EMEA at Datto, said: “We are delighted to reward Complete I.T. for its sales success as one of our select number of Elite Partners globally. Complete I.T.’s local offices, in-depth expertise and market knowledge have been instrumental in their success to date, and we’re looking forward to strong and sustained growth together.”

Colin Blumenthal, CIT’s managing director adds: “We are now expanding to be more local to our clients and have discovered that businesses are eager to ensure that their data is safe and can be recovered in the event of a disaster, whether it’s manmade or natural.

“Losing important company information can lead to significant financial losses if a business can’t get up and running again quickly.

“Our customers want flexible options, including what we term back-up ‘in the cloud’ and not just on in-house equipment, and that’s what our partnership with Datto offers.”

Blumenthal, who has also recently been appointed as chair to Datto’s partner advisory board said: “We wanted to provide SMEs with a technology that is simple to install and manage, and would provide total data protection both locally and in the cloud.”

Marketing Manager, Jessica Symondson, who has recently joined CIT said: “We have created several targeted campaigns designed to educate clients and prospects about the potential loss of data and how that can affect their business.

“Alarmingly, 60% of SMEs that lose their sensitive data will shut down within six months of a disaster, so we also ensure that our helpdesk and sales teams are up to speed with all the latest developments and are passionate about the solutions.”
