Florida Panthers become the latest company to join the #CyberFit movement, welcoming LAN Infotech as the #TeamUp partner.

The Florida Panthers are proud to join Acronis’ #TeamUp program, an exclusive offer to Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to join Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, in working with world-class sports teams to keep all parties’ data safe and #CyberFit while enjoying a boost to brand exposure and a rich array of other perks.

As a top-performing MSP, Acronis will now serve as the Cyber Protection Partner of the National Hockey League’s Florida Panthers. Now, as a proud cyber protection partner, the Florida Panthers are eager to integrate disaster recovery to ensure full data restoration and minimal damages in case of an attack.

“We’re excited to partner with Acronis, an innovative leader in the data recovery industry,” said Panthers Chief Revenue Officer Shawn Thornton. “We look forward to a successful partnership through best-in-class data protection within our organization.”

Globally-renowned organizations — including the San Diego Padres, Washington Football Team, Atlético Madrid, TOYOTA GAZOO Racing and now the Florida Panthers— partner with Acronis to ensure that their data, applications, and systems remain fully protected from modern cyberthreats. These partnerships are often highly-publicized, and you can see Acronis branding on jerseysFormula One cars, even electric flying vehicles.

The NHL’s Florida Panthers are entering their 29th season in the league, competing in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference. The Florida Panthers won the President’s Trophy in 2021-22, earning the most points during the regular season. Under General Manager Bill Zito, the Panthers have grown into a tenacious, dynamic, and exciting team led by Team Captain Aleksander Barkov, stalwart defenseman Aaron Ekblad, two-time Vezina Trophy recipient Sergei Bobrovsky and a deep roster of proven and promising NHL talent. At home in Sunrise, Fla., at the FLA Live Arena, the Panthers are set to host the 2023 NHL All-Star Game.
