WVT's Alteva enhances UC offerings with Mozy's Data Backup service

Alteva, now a subsidiary of independent telco Warwick Valley Telephone (Nasdaq: WWVY), referred to as WVT Communications Group, is wasting no time to up its unified communications (UC) offering by adding Mozy's MozyPro online data backup product.

Made possible via its membership in the Mozy Reseller Program, the MozyPro solution will enable Alteva to instantly enhance its suite of hosted VoIP and UC offerings with online backup-a key service for business users.

As one of the new entrants into the cloud service movement, WVT Communications Group and Alteva will be able to sell potential customers, especially SMBs that lack in-house IT resources, on the ability to set them up quickly with a backup data system.

"While traditional backup solutions can be expensive and take weeks to set up, a reliable online backup solution like MozyPro can be setup by Alteva in a fraction of the time, with no setup fees, or hardware purchases," said Elizabeth Backus, product manager, Alteva. "Additionally, having one provider that offers a complete suite of cloud services eliminates the need to manage multiple vendors."

In addition to providing faster service activation, the MozyPro service allows business users to manage their documents via a web-based portal.

Having this relationship is important for Alteva and parent WVT Communications Group. As the company advances its cloud vision it will need to continue growing product suite organically and through targeted partnerships like this one with Mozy.
