Indonesia, Jakarta, Aug 19, 2021 – Acronis announced today that it has added PT. Synnex Metrodata Indonesia, a market leader in ICT products and solutions distributor in Indonesia, as a distributor for Indonesia, and a partner delivering the Acronis Cyber Cloud Data Center in Indonesia.
Acronis continues to intensify its investments and development in the Indonesian market, one of Acronis’ key focuses in APAC, the fastest growing region. The opening of the Indonesian data center is part of the company’s Global/Local Initiative, which includes global management for all data centers, geographic redundancy, control for local partners, and a local disaster recovery site – all with competitive pricing. As a result, service providers will have no trouble meeting the ever-changing compliance, data sovereignty, and performance requirements.
Synnex Metrodata Indonesia (SMI), a subsidiary of Metrodata Group, with a network spanning across 20 strategic areas in Indonesia covering 150+ cities, and 5200+ channel partners will now get Acronis comprehensive range of cyber protection solutions to users easily.
“As the market is moving forward rapidly to cloud solutions, Acronis’ high-quality, cloud-based backup and cybersecurity software meets a critical need to secure the many remote workers in the current pandemic world,” Lie Heng, Solution Business Director of PT Synnex Metrodata Indonesia. “We are excited to represent Acronis to bring integrated cyber protection solutions to Indonesia especially with the new Acronis cloud data center being launched in Jakarta. Through our partnership with Acronis, we will be able to unlock opportunities such as providing the most comprehensive cyber protection solution for our partners and customers, while providing efficiency, performance and reliability.”
Acronis Cyber Protection solutions address the Five Vectors of Cyber Protection – ensuring the safety, accessibility, privacy, authenticity, and security (SAPAS) of data. This unique approach helps customers protect all of their data, applications, and systems, ensuring effective cyber protection and data management in the data center, cloud, and edge devices.
This comprehensive approach to cyber protection is increasingly important for organizations trying to succeed in today’s IT industry. As revealed in Acronis’ recently released Cyberthreats Report Mid-year 2021 update, four out of five organizations experienced a cybersecurity breach originating from a vulnerability in their third-party vendor ecosystem in just the first half of 2021. At the same time, the average cost of a data breach rose to around $3.56 million, with the average ransomware payment jumping 33 percent – to more than $100,000.
"In the wake of the fast-paced changes in Indonesian IT requirements, organizations are seeking modern solutions to modern cyber challenges.” Aviantri Faiza, Acronis Indonesia Channel Head. “Having established more than four decades ago, SMI has shown impeccable performance as the largest and most innovative ICT distributor in Indonesia, with the biggest coverage and reliable business infrastructure system. We look forward to building a strong partnership with SMI and expanding Acronis’ footprint in Indonesia.”
Among the solutions now available through the new data center is Acronis Cyber Protect, a unique integration of backup, disaster recovery, next-gen antimalware, cybersecurity, and endpoint management tools – all managed via a single pane of glass. The solution is VB100 certified and its unique capabilities earned Acronis Cyber Protect the 2020 New Product Innovation Award for Data Protection from Frost & Sullivan.
“Acronis’ market value has grown over $2.5 billion, our channel is also booming: number of our Service Provider partners has surpassed 10,000 and keeps growing rapidly across the world,” said Neil Morarji, Acronis General Manager in APAC. “Indonesia is one of Acronis’ key focuses in APAC, the fastest growing region. We have poured a large portion of recent $250 million investment into the Indonesian channel market and we will continue to help our partners expand their cyber protection capabilities.”
Acronis recently announced a new round of investment of more than $250 million funding round from CVC Capital Partners VII and other investors, putting their valuation at $2.5 billion. The company has committed those funds to expand the support for cloud partners – providing additional sales and marketing resources, faster and localized technical support, dedicated partner success managers, and local data centers in 111 locations worldwide.
