Document management company, Recall and Seagate company, EVault, have expanded their North and South American strategic alliance into the Asia Pacific market with their range of data protection solutions.

The move into the Asia Pacific market follows the establishment of the partnership between the two companies over a year ago, offering services in North America, Mexico and Brazil.

According to Dan McFarland, President, Recall ANZ, the partnership will set the benchmark for data protection services in the Asia Pacific region, by offering “unique solutions to the many challenges in information management.”

McFarland said he saw the collaboration between the two companies as an integral way of moving towards tailoring specific solutions to individual clients.  “Companies are increasingly putting data security on a priority fast track, and their more-sophisticated demands require flexible and secure solutions. Our partnership with EVault has allowed us to provide best-in-class options to customers with various needs ranging in industry and size. Moving into the Asia Pacific region presents exciting new opportunities.”

McFarland said Recall already had onsite data protection facilities in all states and territories in Australia, except the Northern Territory, and he added, with the entry into the APAC market the presence of Recall on a local level would enable consumers to access new EVault data solutions not previously available in Australia.

“This will facilitate the delivery of EVault data backup and recovery solutions, including EVault SaaS and EVault Endpoint Protection.”  

McFarland said EVault had been the industry leader in the move towards cloud-connected (hybrid) storage models, “with a uniquely integrated ecosystem of EVault storage software, cloud services, managed services, and appliances that help ensure customers will maintain business continuity.”

“While the hybrid approach is not yet widespread in the Asia Pacific region, EVault’s progress will set a precedent for the market,” McFarland claimed, citing The Forrester Report of February last year which revealed the percentage of organisations in Asia Pacific expecting to leverage a hybrid approach increased from 18 percent in 2010 to 23 percent today.

And, according to Paul Hartzell, EVault Vice President for the Asia Pacific region, in today’s growing information-based economy, data security and accessibility have become a “critical component for business continuity and productivity.”

“Working with Recall gives us the ability to harness our individual strengths and provide customers more customised offerings tailored to their specific information technology needs.

“By extending our partnership into the Asia Pacific market, we are able to capitalise on a growing market and deliver cloud-connected solutions to a new cadre of customers who rely on their data to keep their businesses up and running, no matter what.”
