HONG KONG- CITIC Telecom International CPC Limited has announced it obtained two Veeam Customer Ready competencies: Off-site Backup and BaaS for Microsoft 365 . Their next goal is to earn a third credential: DRaaS.
CITIC Telecom CPC partnered with Veeam in 2010 and was the first cloud service provider in Asia Pacific to offer virtual-to-cloud BaaS powered by Veeam Cloud Connect. The company has been crowned as a Platinum Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) partner and received the VCSP Partner of the Year award for 6 consecutive years. These accolades reaffirm CITIC Telecom CPC demonstrates a strong collaboration with Veeam as well as professional expertise in supporting cloud-based solutions to meet the demand of clients.
“As one of our top VCSP partners, CITIC Telecom CPC serves multinational enterprises in nearly 160 countries,” said Dick Tang, Senior Regional Business Manager, Hong Kong and Taiwan, Veeam Software. “Multinational enterprises understand the value of Veeam Customer Ready competencies because they represent industry best practices. We applaud CITIC Telecom CPC’s continued double-digit annual growth of their SmartCLOUD(TM) BRR backup, replication and disaster recovery solution.”
CITIC Telecom CPC helps customers future-proof their businesses with cloud computing solutions that transform their IT environments and protect their data. As a Global-Local DICT Managed Service Provider (MSP), CITIC Telecom CPC offers a suite of highly customizable cloud offerings such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), Anything as a Service (XaaS), multi-cloud connectivity and managed services. The company’s SmartCLOUD BRR provides a full range of on-premises and off-premises backup and replication services to prevent data loss and guarantee business continuity including Backup as a Service (BaaS) and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS).
Veeam Data Platform and Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 underpin SmartCLOUD(TM) BRR . They deliver safe, secure and simple data protection across platforms, as well as flexible and simple pricing. They also protect against ransomware attacks through data encryption and backup immutability to ensure all data is always accessible.
CITIC Telecom CPC uses Veeam Data Platform’s Veeam Backup & Replication(TM) to power SmartCLOUD BRR for versatile backup and disaster recovery solutions. Veeam Data Platform delivers a single data protection solution for cloud, virtual, physical, SaaS and Kubernetes environments. In addition, CITIC Telecom CPC uses Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 for flexible data recovery and powerful eDiscovery of individual Microsoft 365 items.
“Veeam’s comprehensive data protection empowers us to meet customers’ disaster recovery and business continuity requirements,” said Danny Tang, Senior Manager, Cloud Services, CITIC Telecom International CPC Limited. “Veeam supports backup and replication in every scenario: physical to cloud (P2C), cloud to cloud (C2C), virtual to cloud (V2C) and SaaS backup. Veeam’s support for ICT environments is extensive too. For example, some customers are moving from traditional virtual machines to containers, so Kasten K10 by Veeam protects their Kubernetes workloads.”
Danny Tang said customers’ data is backed up, secured and recoverable, which is vital for meeting service level agreements (SLAs) and protecting against ransomware attacks. Customers can verify the recoverability of backups and recover instantly. If their users accidentally or intentionally delete data in Microsoft 365, a self-service restore portal helps recover data immediately. In addition, CITIC Telecom CPC offers 24/7 monitoring and management services.
“We keep track of customers’ status, so if something goes wrong, we can take immediate action and mitigate the problem before it impacts their daily operations,” Danny Tang said. “These value-added services are a big reason why customers choose CITIC Telecom CPC as their MSP.”

VCSP partners like CITIC Telecom CPC give organizations the power of choice when deciding what level of service is required for their data protection needs. From self-managed, off-premises backup storage options to fully managed BaaS and DRaaS solutions that include implementation, management, monitoring, testing and recovery, the level of service can vary; however, one thing is certain: Security matters.
“At CITIC Telecom CPC, we strive for security and innovation excellence,” Danny Tang said. “We are very honored to receive two Gold awards for Best Artificial Intelligence (AI) Threat Detection – Asia and the Most Innovative Cybersecurity Company – Asia in the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards 2023. This incredible accomplishment is a testament to our efforts to spark innovation and underscore our commitment to staying at the forefront of the cybersecurity industry.”
