Acronis has announced the availability of its cyber cloud data centre in Johannesburg, Gauteng Province, South Africa.

The data centre is one of the 111 new data centres being deployed by the company. This gives service provider partners access to cyber protection solutions upon which they can build new services while delivering faster access, constant data availability, and data sovereignty to their clients.

The local service providers will have a location within the country where they can store business-critical data for their clients. Managed service providers (MSPs) will also benefit from the managed cloud solutions and cyber protection solutions available via the Acronis cyber cloud platform.

The global network of Acronis cyber cloud data centres includes over 40 data centres in Europe, Asia, US and Africa.

“A local presence is a necessity for modern cloud businesses and we are proud to deliver the Acronis cyber cloud data centre in South Africa,” said Peter French, regional general manager – Middle East and Africa at Acronis. “Now they can safeguard client data locally and know that they are backed by a global partner who is on standby 24/7/365 to address any issues.”

Denzil Moorcroft, sales director – Channel Partners, 4Sight Dynamics Africa (distributor of Acronis) said: “We are excited about Acronis’s local approach to cyber protection, as it is important for organisations to meet localisation requirements. Our partners and their customers can look forward to locally-hosted cyber protection solutions, which will give them peace of mind and security, from a global partner like Acronis.”

Oliver Niemandt, general manager at Tarsus On Demand (distributor of Acronis) said: “It has become increasingly important for South African businesses to put measures in place to ensure that they avoid being prime targets for cyberattacks. Organisations of all sizes need to ensure that they are compliant and that their client’s information remains secured especially after the Protection of Personal Information Act (PoPIA) came into effect on July 1, 2021. We are excited that Acronis is investing in a new data centre in South Africa for more simplified and secured business operations. We strongly believe that this is exactly what our partner ecosystem needs and the move will accelerate digital transformation among South African businesses.”
