Datto Inc. acquires distribution partner Paradeon Technologies, increasing resources for UK customers
Datto, Inc., an award-winning provider of hardware-based on- and off-site backup, disaster recovery (BDR) and intelligent business continuity (IBC) solutions, announced today, the acquisition of Paradeon Technologies and further expansion into the UK and EU markets. Marking the first stop of an ongoing international expansion program, the UK site will include a dedicated office with sales, operations and marketing teams focused on the UK and broader EU sectors. Partners will gain access to enhanced UK-based technical support for the full suite of Datto devices and services, including RoundTrip drives. Furthermore, Datto is expanding its Partner training program and will offer Datto Academy classes at the Reading, Berkshire office. Datto UK's cloud is based in the renowned Portsmouth PEER 1 Hosting Green Data Center, which conforms to European data protection and privacy laws.
Datto devices have been sold in the UK market for the last two years through distributor Paradeon Technologies, which is now officially Datto UK. In order to echo the success of Datto Inc. in the US, UK efforts will follow the same channel-only business model. Solutions will be resold through Managed Service Providers (MSPs), Value Added Resellers (VARs) and IT Service Providers to end-user businesses.
"By launching a dedicated office and full-time team, we will better serve our Datto Partners in the UK," said Austin McChord, Founder & CEO of Datto. "We've got ambitious plans to expand our offering into new markets across Europe and this acquisition will enable our companies to work even closer together as we move forward."
"I've worked directly with the Paradeon team since their inception as a Datto distributor and they have proven their ability to replicate our successful customer experience in the US," said Najaf Raza, Director of International Operations at Datto. "We look forward to supporting them with more resources and expert guidance as they join the Datto family."
"We are very excited about this acquisition and access to new resources which will allow us to better serve our UK and EU Partners," said Andrew Stuart, Director of Operations at Datto UK and former Managing Director of Paradeon. "The dedication and commitment of our current UK Partners and staff drove the success which helped us reach this point."
