Nextgen is Datto’s First Distributor in SEA

SINGAPORE, March 1 (Bernama) — Datto Holding Corp. (NYSE:MSP) inked a distribution agreement with NEXTGEN Asia to accelerate the growth of the Managed Service Provider channel in Southeast Asia.

Datto, the MSP technology company, will expand its investment in Southeast Asia to equip MSPs with solutions to help small and medium-sized enterprises avoid downtime and disruptions in the aftermath of cyberattacks.

With Datto tools, MSPs can help protect their clients against permanent data loss. On the other hand, they can also recover from ransomware or user error quickly with a one-click restore.

Wendy O’Keeffe, Executive Vice President and Managing Director of NEXTGEN Asia will lead the relationship with Datto.

“There are so many things to love about this partnership as we grow and build our brands together,” says O’Keeffe. “Datto already has a significant channel community with over 17,000 MSPs worldwide. It is a 100% channel-only business which is critical to building trust.

“We have a joint plan to grow the Datto partner community and augment their current partnerships with an enriched level of excellence. These are aimed at building cyber resilience for SMEs.

“To elevate service and support for Datto partners in Southeast Asia we need to work with a competent and innovative organisation. NEXTGEN is that partner and Wendy O’Keeffe is that leader,” says Danny Mesrop, VP of Sales, APAC at Datto.

“Through NEXTGEN, we can drive immediate impact through broader education, awareness. It also has a solution set to address the challenges Datto clients face.  They include cyberattacks that threaten to bring business-crippling downtime and cost.”


Datto Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery solutions are purpose-built for MSPs, enabling them to deliver customised backup and recovery for SME clients.

NEXTGEN Group CEO, John Walters says the partnership is aligned with NEXTGEN’s technology strategy of data management, enterprise software, and cybersecurity.

“Security is a major concern in the region. Some markets in SEA have been the most targeted globally with ransomware.

“Consequently, cyber incidents have become the top business risk priority for customers in the region. We have grown our cybersecurity practice tenfold. Our service offerings have dramatically matured over the past eighteen months. We look forward to supporting Datto’s growth strategy in the region.”
