StorageCraft announces partnership with Data World to shake up the backup and disaster recovery market in Hong Kong

In response to increasing cybersecurity threats, StorageCraft plans ambitious expansion in Asia

HONG KONG – StorageCraft®, provider of disaster recovery solutions for virtual and physical servers, today announced its distribution partnership  with Data World Computer and Communication Ltd (Data World) in Hong Kong. In addition, StorageCraft is finalising the appointment of a local business development professional to develop and grow the distribution channel for StorageCraft in Hong Kong, as part of its broader expansion plans across Asia.

The agreement allows Data World to distribute StorageCraft solutions to the Hong Kong market.

“Security and data protection is a key concern for businesses. Small and medium enterprises constitute over 98% of businesses in Hong Kong and they are more vulnerable to internet security threats. Our presence in Hong Kong will help companies reduce downtime, improve security and stability for systems and data, and lower their total cost of ownership,” said Marvin Blough, StorageCraft’s vice president of worldwide sales.

“Hong Kong is a key market for StorageCraft and we have aggressive growth plans here. We are thrilled to announce our first local partnership with Data World, a professional and dedicated distributor with a strong presence in the security and networking space. We are confident that the partnership will deliver significant growth by expanding our channel presence in the Asia Pacific & Japan region, and provide resellers with a one-stop shop for their backup and disaster recovery requirements,” added Blough.

“We see a strong complementary offering in the StorageCraft range and believe it will integrate well with technology from our present vendor line-up,” said Henry Ng, Data World general manager. “The partnership will provide our resellers with profitable opportunities to attach one of the world’s leading backup and disaster recovery products to their solutions.”

He added, “ShadowProtect® is unquestionably the world-leading solution in this market, and we have witnessed the explosive growth it has achieved over the past few years. We are delighted to become an integral part of this growth and look forward to leveraging the strong presence StorageCraft has built up across the global channel community.”

“We see Data World as a key strategic partner in Hong Kong, the latest link in a jigsaw that is rapidly covering Asia-Pacific and Japan. We are seeking quality partners such as Data World in key regions, to share in the prosperity being delivered by our 100 per cent channel policy,” said Blough.
