Johannesburg, 10 Oct 2023
In a world marked by escalating threats from ransomware attacks, data breaches and natural disasters, organisations of all sizes and across various industries find themselves in need of robust data protection solutions. This growing demand is reflected in Market.Us's projection, indicating that the global managed services market is poised to expand from $279 billion in 2022 to an impressive $835 billion by 2032. This substantial growth, amounting to nearly a 12% compound annual growth rate (CAGR), underscores the immense opportunities awaiting managed services providers (MSPs).
Simultaneously, a survey conducted by SP Global Market Intelligence reveals that 46% of respondents are currently using or have plans to implement backup and recovery managed services in the next two years. This places backup and recovery services second only to day-to-day operational monitoring – a core offering for many MSPs. Given the central role of backup and recovery in ensuring data resilience, these statistics affirm that providing such services is not only prudent but also lucrative for MSPs.
However, thriving in a competitive marketplace necessitates setting oneself apart from the competition. This is where becoming an Arcserve technology partner can make a significant difference. Partnering with Arcserve opens doors to new customer opportunities and solidifies your reputation as a trusted partner for existing clients.
Best-in-class data resilience solutions
One of the primary advantages of being an Arcserve partner lies in the unparalleled Unified Data Resilience platform. This platform, built on three key pillars, offers a multifaceted approach that delivers comprehensive backup, replication and disaster recovery capabilities within a single solution. It not only captures the attention of potential customers, but also reinforces the trust your current customers place in your expertise.
- Prevent: By incorporating Arcserve solutions integrated with Sophos Intercept X Advanced, you can provide state-of-the-art cyber security that employs deep-learning neural networks to detect both known and unknown malware – without relying on traditional signatures.
- Protect: You can safeguard your customers' physical and virtual data across on-premises, cloud and SaaS environments from external threats, major disasters, human errors and other unexpected disruptions.
- Recover: With Arcserve, you can securely activate replicas of your customers' physical and virtual systems, whether on-site, off-site or in private and public clouds.
However, the story doesn't end here.
