ONTRACK DATA RECOVERY EXPANDS OPERATIONS IN EUROPE

New Offices in Poland, Austria Demonstrate Continued Expansion of Worldwide 24/7 Data Recovery Services

Due to the growing demand for data recovery solutions in the European market, Ontrack Data Recovery™, the industry’s largest, most experienced and technologically advanced provider of data recovery products and services has announced its continued expansion with new offices in Katowice, Poland and Vienna, Austria. “With more engineers and an additional recovery lab, this expansion significantly enhances Ontrack’s ability to handle service requests from Eastern Europe,” said Jim Reinert, senior director of Software and Services for Ontrack Data Recovery. “Ontrack has successfully introduced our data recovery services to many locations around the globe and we anticipate continued success in helping businesses and computer users in these markets address the crisis of computer data loss.”

Peter Boehret, currently responsible for managing Ontrack’s operations in Germany, Italy and Switzerland, has been selected to lead both offices. The Katowice office is established through Ontrack’s investment in Ontrack odzyskiwanie danych Sp. z o.o., the largest data recovery company in Poland and its former licensed partner, MBM Ontrack. Poland is currently among Eastern Europe’s fastest-growing IT markets – demonstrated by the nearly 60 percent yearly increase in data recovery operations MBM Ontrack experienced in the last two years. The Vienna office will operate to provide sales support as well as partnership opportunities for businesses seeking to enhance their own offerings.
