Tarsus and Zerto boost SA’s disaster recovery efforts amid cyber threats

Tarsus Distribution, a leading technology distributor in Southern Africa, has partnered with Zerto, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, to deliver advanced disaster recovery and data protection solutions to businesses across the region. This collaboration addresses the increasing need for robust disaster recovery capabilities amidst growing cyber threats and operational disruptions.

The partnership will enable Tarsus Distribution to offer Zerto’s comprehensive Disaster Recovery solutions. This includes real-time protection, near-zero data loss, and low recovery point objectives (RPOs), providing businesses with a secure and reliable way to safeguard their data and maintain continuity during unforeseen events such as ransomware attacks or natural disasters.

Chris Larkins, Enterprise Technology Officer at Tarsus Distribution, highlights the critical need for such solutions: “With the rising frequency of cyberattacks and operational disruptions, it’s imperative for businesses to ensure their data is secure and recoverable. Our partnership with Zerto enables us to provide a seamless and robust disaster recovery solution that protects our customers’ critical assets and ensures business continuity. This is particularly vital in South Africa, where businesses are frequently challenged by power outages and infrastructure issues.”

Zerto’s Senior Technology Evangelist, Chris Rogers, added, “We are thrilled to partner with Tarsus Distribution to bring our disaster recovery and data protection solutions to the South African market. Zerto’s technology ensures that businesses can recover quickly from disruptions, minimising downtime and data loss. Together with Tarsus, we aim to deliver unparalleled protection and peace of mind to South African enterprises.”

The strategic collaboration leverages Tarsus Distribution’s extensive channel network and Zerto’s innovative technology to offer a tailored disaster recovery solution. This partnership not only enhances Tarsus’s portfolio but also provides South African businesses with access to world-class disaster recovery capabilities, ensuring they can operate securely and efficiently.

The need for robust disaster recovery solutions is underscored by the ongoing energy crisis and frequent undersea cable failures, which have highlighted the importance of business continuity measures. According to Statistics South Africa, the country experienced an average of 2.5 power outages per week in 2023, significantly impacting business operations.

“Our customers can now benefit from a comprehensive disaster recovery solution that is both cost-effective and easy to implement,” said Larkins. “With Zerto’s advanced technology and our commitment to exceptional service, we are well-positioned to support our customers in navigating the challenges of today’s dynamic business environment with both traditional on premise solutions and in the very near future, flexible as a service offerings to cover their requirements regardless of location.”
