Company sees Singapore as gateway to Asia expansion; offers affordable solution to resolving potentially business-crippling ransomware attacks, other sources of downtime

SINGAPORE – 1st August 2016 — / — Datto, an innovative provider of comprehensive backup, recovery, and business continuity solutions used by thousands of managed service providers worldwide, has launched in Singapore, as a major first step to growing its presence in Asia. The company has a dedicated data centre in Singapore, managed in partnership with global interconnection and data centre company Equinix Inc. and offers an affordable and scalable data protection & recovery solution to mid-sized businesses and small enterprises – an increasingly business-critical requirement given the rise in ransomware attacks in the country. Whether downtime is caused by natural disaster, user error, or ransomware, Datto equips managed services providers to ensure uninterrupted access to business data and systems.

Datto’s sales management for Asia is headquartered in Singapore, with additional hiring already underway. The US-based company already has a presence in the UK, Canada and Australia, as well as distribution partners in continental Europe.

Ransomware infections are increasing in Singapore, with the Government’s Singapore Computer Emergency Response Team (SingCert) last month alerting computer users to a noticeable rise in cases here.

Datto’s secure purpose-built 200+petabyte cloud and family of software and hardware devices provide total data protection everywhere business data lives. Whether data is held on a business’s premises in a physical or virtual server, in the cloud, or in SaaS applications, only Datto offers end-to-end recoverability, single-vendor accountability and 24/7 support. Pricing is based on data retention time rather than required storage capacity, thus providing mid-sized businesses with a cost-effective solution which can grow with them. Datto also offers infinite cloud data retention for a flat fee, providing predictable costs for full peace of mind against ransomware attacks and other threats to business continuity.

Commenting on the launch, Nop Srinara, Datto’s Asia Sales Director, said, “Cost-effective and affordable data protection and recovery has never been more important as we witness the worrying increase in ransomware infections in Singapore and across the region. Datto’s suite of business continuity products has been specifically designed for mid-sized businesses and small enterprises, and is delivered 100 percent through the channel. Datto equips our partners to offer the same high standard of data protection that previously was only available to enterprise-level companies.”

Bryan Hauptman, Senior Vice President of Global Sales for Datto said, “Singapore is globally recognised as the technology hub of Asia, making it a no-brainer decision to base Datto’s regional headquarters here. We’re looking forward to working with the country’s managed service providers and other industry partners to provide a simple yet highly effective data protection solution to Singapore and the wider region’s business community.”

Datto will be hosting a series of free road shows throughout August across the region where partners can learn more about the company and its products and services. More information, including registration details, is available at
