Tech Data, a TD SYNNEX company, has announced the acquisition of Sydney based security-focused Sydney distributor Orca Technology for an undisclosed sum, effective immediately.

The company said the acquisition will complement its security competencies, vendors and partners in Australia and New Zealand.

Tech Data will add hyperscaler marketplaces with Amazon Web Services and Microsoft through its StreamOne Ion platform and help simplify the complexities of the cloud transition for Orca Tech’s vendors and partners.

The company will also provide security and cloud services, its Centre of Excellence environments and Practice Builder toolsets.

The acquisition “strengthens Tech Data’s aspiration of becoming the leading value-added distributor in strategic technologies, which include IT security, cloud, analytics and AI, in Australia and New Zealand,” an announcement about the purchase stated.

“At Orca Tech, we are excited for the new opportunities in the journey ahead – from the ability to expand our offerings to existing vendors and partners, to the increase in scale that brings new and exciting developmental opportunities for employees in both companies,” stated Craig Ashwood, general manager of Orca Tech.

“We believe that the synergies developed from both organisations scaling their know-how and capabilities will be a boon for the entire IT channel ecosystem across the value chain, from vendors to partners and end-customers.”

Founded in 2017 by Martin Christmas and Jack Sabo, Orca Tech is highly specialised in sales, technical and marketing services to resellers.

“We are thrilled to welcome Orca Tech into the Tech Data and TDSYNNEX family” said Jaideep Malhotra, president of TD SYNNEX in Asia Pacific and Japan.

“With this acquisition, we are expanding our IT security portfolio and capabilities, delivering higher value to our customers and partners in ANZ.”

“Orca Tech has built a strong reputation as a trusted IT security specialist and has a proven track record of success. Together, we will create new opportunities for growth and innovation in the fast-growing IT security market.”
