Data protection vendor Datto has announced it is expanding investment in the Australia and New Zealand region by opening a new Sydney office and boosting its commitment to the rapidly growing managed services market.

Datto said “doubling down” on its investment in the two markets would enable the company and its partners to continue to grow and address the IT needs of small and medium businesses in the region.

The company said that, since its Australian office was established in 2015, what started out as one employee managing the region has grown to more than 60 staff serving more than 1200 MSP partners and in Australia and New Zealand – and with the new office accommodating a staff of up to 130.

And Datto says MSPs can expect to see the market for managed services grow, with a recent research report forecasting that Australian IT services revenue will reach approximately $23 million in 2023, up from an estimated $19 million in 2018.

“Technology is being introduced at record speeds, and the ability to leverage these technologies while protecting IT infrastructure and intellectual property is playing a significant role in how businesses of all sizes operate today,” said Datto APAC director of Sales, James Bergl.

“The critical need to combat cybercrime, such as ransomware and phishing attacks, as well as address continued cloud service outages, has seen a rapid rise in SMBs relying on the specialist expertise of managed service providers for business continuity.

“Datto is committed to developing the local IT channel and building the right team of professionals to support it. We have ambitious plans to double in size in the coming years and our new office provides a modern workspace and surroundings to attract and retain the best talent from an ultra-competitive talent pool,” Bergl said.

“As small businesses recognise the importance of maintaining the integrity of their IT infrastructure, IT providers and the Australian managed services market continues to grow,” said Daniel Williams, chief executive and director of PowerNET IT Solutions, an MSP in Melbourne.

“Datto has been a true partner in helping IT providers like Powernet provide valuable and mission-critical services to small businesses across Australia.”
