Broadliner Tech Data has signed a distribution agreement with SEP, a Made in Germany editor of platform-independent hybrid backup and disaster recovery solutions. Thanks to the distribution agreement, Tech Data's partners now have access to one of the most widely deployed data backup solutions on the market.


SEP has been developing backup solutions since 1992 and backs up a variety of virtual environments, operating systems, applications and databases. The universal support of complex system environments sets SEP's solution apart from other market solutions. Numerous partnerships and certifications of manufacturers such as SAP, RedHat, IBM, Lenovo and HPE distinguish SEP's broad product portfolio.


A clear advantage for Tech Data sales partners is the fact that SEP is headquartered in Germany and partners can therefore rely on local support and development work. This guarantees that companies use a secure and data protection compliant solution for their data backup.


Stefan Bichler, Business Unit Director Software & Cloud at Tech Data, comments: "I am very pleased that we can now offer our partners a German manufacturer of backup solutions that always receives excellent ratings in its customer surveys. Especially due to the many overlaps with, for example, HPE, IBM, Lenovo or SAP, there are numerous advantages for our sales partners. For me SEP is an excellent addition to our portfolio and I am looking forward to working with them."


"Tech Data and SEP are a perfect match due to their overlapping expertise in the professional IT environment. We are pleased to work with a strong distributor with a broad customer base and experience in the B2B environment. The strong end-to-end portfolio and the focus on next generation technologies are in line with SEP's strategic direction", said Georg Moosreiner, CEO and co-founder of SEP AG.


Tech Data sales partners have immediate access to the entire SEP product range. In addition to a reseller program that offers partners project protection with a best price guarantee, qualified leads as well as personal training and certification, partners can also access 24/7 support based in Germany.
