South Africa-headquartered IT solutions company B-Sure Group has landed in Brisbane with plans to take on Datto and StorageCraft by offering Redstor back-up and disaster recovery solutions.

Under the B-Sure IT brand, the company acts in Australia as a distributor of cyber security and networking vendor iShield Security, print solutions from Konika Minolta and have most recently signed an exclusive deal to distribute UK-based Redstor solutions across New Zealand also.

According to B-Sure IT sales director Auret Van Zyl, the exclusive trans-Tasman deal is a result of the ongoing partnership with the vendor in South Africa.

Currently, the distributor has five managed services providers testing the Redstor solutions.

"Redstor is a fully hybrid cloud solution, this enables companies to deploy their backup to any destination within Australia immediately with no requirements on hardware unlike Datto," Van Zyl told ARN.

"Offering on-premises, cloud and hybrid models, any company structure can be effectively secured without any capital expense required and due to our pricing, all back-ups can scale to the requirements of the client instantly, so you pay for what you need.

"The recovery time we have due to our 'instant data' ensures companies, in the event of a recovery or failure, can be up and running within minutes, even seconds where required."

According to Van Zyl, Australia has long lacked this type of back-up and protection model, especially one that can be used by companies of all sizes.

"So in a nutshell, we take on Datto because we are faster to deploy, no hardware required, fully hybrid, scalable in requirements, completely compliant for any industry or company size, lower price structure and we have military grade encryption with bank level security," Van Zyl said about the Redstor solution.

Founded in 2015 as an investment holding company, B-Sure Group has expertise across technology, telecoms, recruitment, property and financial services sectors.
