Johannesburg, South Africa: 18, September, 2018: Arcserve – the data backup and availability pioneer – today announced the opening of Arcserve Southern Africa in a move that hails a new era of growth in the African market.

Arcserve has been successfully operating in sub-Saharan African for many years, with Gartner and IDC reporting CY2017 growth to be 14.5 percent. However, this is the first time the company has had an on the ground presence in the region. With the new opening, customers and prospects will benefit from improved access to local support and increased Arcserve investment in ‘go to market’ strategies.

According to Mick Bradley, EMEA Vice President of Arcserve, “Southern Africa is no stranger to Arcserve’s business continuity and disaster recovery offerings. However, with the introduction of sales, marketing and technical teams based locally, we can now use years of homegrown insight and experience to satisfy the unique requirements of the Southern African market. By doing so we will drive impressive results in the Southern Africa, fuelling both revenue growth and improved market dominance”.

Carol Ann Searra, Executive, Arcserve Southern Africa, says this is an exciting development for South Africa’s business continuity and disaster recovery markets. “Arcserve is already well established in this region but the presence of dedicated sales, marketing and technical teams, on the ground – all with profound local market knowledge, experience and expertise – bodes well for customer support and further development of channel partnerships. Moreover, this will ensure the most effective delivery of products and services to the region.”
