Patrick Casteels, managing partner at Kappa Data

Arcserve, the world’s most experienced data and ransomware protection provider, has named leading IT security specialist Kappa Data as a value-added distributor in Belgium and the Netherlands.


Kappa Data brings 20 years of IT security expertise to the Benelux channel, which will arm value added resellers and managed service providers with the market’s only integrated cyber and data protection tools necessary to protect customer data and fight ransomware.


Partnering with Kappa Data will give value-added resellers and managed service providers in the Benelux channel the opportunity to supply their users with best-in-class integrated data protection and ransomware solutions


The quality of Arcserve’s solutions is industry-leading when it comes to ransomware prevention, so it’s only natural that we should partner with them”, said Patrick Casteels, managing partner at Kappa Data. “Businesses in Benelux are currently tasked with dealing with an array of ever more complex cyberthreats, in addition to the obvious economic challenges affecting the IT industry and beyond. The reliable, cost effective, all-in-one data protection solutions Arcserve provides will help our customers meet these pertinent challenges.


A recent survey from Arcserve of nearly 2,000 global consumers found that 59% of consumers worldwide would likely avoid doing business with an organisation that had experienced a cyberattack in the past year. Arcserve recently deepened its alliance with Sophos, the world’s leading cybersecurity provider, to offer AI-powered anti-ransomware and data protection solutions for on-premises, cloud and SaaS-based workloads: Arcserve Cloud Backup for Office 365 and Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP) Cloud Hybrid Secured by Sophos.


Arcserve remains 100% dedicated to the channel, so having the right distributor is essential to our business model”, said Mick Bradley, VP EMEA at Arcserve. “I am confident that coming together with Kappa Data will be a key step in helping businesses in Benelux mitigate the threat which ransomware poses to their operations, and will perfectly complement our existing presence in the region. Kappa Data’s respected position, local expertise of the SMB and enterprise markets, and years of experience delivering security solutions in conjunction with Sophos made them an obvious choice for us to join with. Together, we’re proud to be part of an ecosystem that can offer the highest possible availability and security to Benelux businesses.
