iomart will launch a new campaign to help businesses transform how they work in the cloud at Cloud Europe on 11th March at ExCel London

GLASGOW, SCOTLAND – February 27, 2015 – /BackupReview.info/ — ‘SavetheCloud365’ will showcase how using iomart can help customers use Office 365, the all-inclusive productivity solution that delivers familiar Office applications coupled with powerful enterprise class communications and collaboration capabilities across your tablet, PC and phone.

The campaign is being launched on Stand 220 with iomart’s own King of the IT Jungle, ‘I’m a Celebrity….Get Me Out Of Here’ contestant and football pundit Jimmy Bullard.  Jimmy will be on the stand from 11am to 1pm on the opening day of Cloud Expo Europe alongside experts from iomart and Microsoft who will explain how easy it is to migrate to and manage Office 365.

Phil Worms, Chief Marketing Officer for iomart, says, “Jimmy survived in the jungle in Australia by being resourceful and learning to operate remotely from his friends and family. To survive the modern IT jungle that’s what a business has to do and what Office 365 allows you to do is take your office on the road so you can operate a lot smarter.”

iomart has been chosen by Microsoft as a Tier 1 partner for its Cloud Solution Provider Programme in Europe. This means can fully support Office 365 for customers via managed technical support and control the entire billing process.

iomart is partnering with the environmental charity Rainforest Concern which works to protect the threatened Cloud Forest in Ecuador for the campaign. For every Office 365 licence sold by iomart, a donation will be made to the charity to help it secure more land in the Choco Andean Corridor in north west Ecuador. Rangers working for the charity in the Cloud Forest will be given tablets loaded with Office 365 to enable them to work better and smarter.

Peter Bennett, Executive Director and Founder of Rainforest Concern, says, “We’re delighted that iomart is supporting us.  Ecuador is one of the most diverse regions for flora and fauna. The Ecuadorian forest is disappearing at a rate of over 200,000 hectares a year. We are working to stop this and maintain the landscape so the birds, animals and local people can all continue to survive.”

Microsoft’s vision is to empower people through technology and a cloud-first world and iomart has been chosen to help it achieve that.  iomart will provide the technical support management and expertise to support businesses who want to move to Office 365.

Bill Strain, Chief Technology Officer for iomart, says, “It’s hardly surprising that people compare the IT marketplace to a jungle. It can be a wild and untamed place to be and difficult to navigate without a knowledgeable guide.  It is this hypothetical wilderness that is leading more and more businesses to select a trusted and ‘cloud agnostic’ service provider like iomart to assist them on their journey to the cloud. Choosing an expert Cloud Service Provider who you can build a lasting relationship with and who has the expertise to deliver a variety of requirements ensures you can architect services to meet your exact business needs.”

Cloud the way it should be: Transporter for Business makes synching and sharing business data simple, safe and secure. No monthly fees, no privacy risks

LONDON, UK. – February 27, 2015 – /BackupReview.info/ — Connected Data today announced the UK launch of Transporter for Business, the first private cloud storage platform to combine the convenience of public cloud services with the privacy and security of traditional network-attached storage.

With prices starting from £2,000, Transporter for Business enables organisations to keep cloud data on-site without having to pay recurring monthly fees, manage storage capacity limits or replace legacy storage systems. Available in a variety of configurations ranging from 8TB to 24TB, it delivers a fast and secure private cloud experience through intuitive hardware that is fully controlled by the end user.

Transporter for Business enables up to 150 users per device to create and share company files with an unlimited number of colleagues, all in complete privacy. All products in the Transporter for Business family also work seamlessly together, so businesses can simply add new Transporters to an existing network when additional storage or user capacity is needed.

“As an on-premise offering with private cloud capabilities, Connected Data’s Transporter for Business mixes the best features of public cloud, such as ubiquitous access and sharing, with key benefits of on-premise offerings including privacy, redundancy, and one-time pricing,” said Jingwen Li, research analyst, storage group, IDC. “These features will be attractive to companies that refrain from public cloud because of data security concerns as well as companies whose on-premise storage lacks the data access or sync and share feasibility.”

The urgent and growing need for private cloud solutions among UK businesses has been highlighted by the findings of a new survey commissioned by Connected Data. The survey of 100 UK firms revealed significant concerns about the safety and privacy of public cloud solutions such as Dropbox and Box in the business environment. Over 90% of senior IT decision makers questioned felt that sharing company data via public cloud represented a risk to their business. As a result, a third (33%) of companies questioned already ban the use of public cloud for sharing and synching confidential data.

However, this is not deterring many employees who increasingly desire the same ease of use and data accessibility in their working environment that they can enjoy in their personal lives. Over two thirds (69%) of businesses questioned believed that public cloud services were being used by some proportion of their workforce regardless of company policy (with 29% suspecting over half their employees of doing so). When asked what they felt led these employees to use public cloud services, the top three factors cited were cross-device accessibility (54%), ease of use (48%) and speed of use (43%).

Transporter for Business offers all of the key benefits of a public cloud platform, without any of the privacy or security concerns, making it an ideal solution in tightly regulated industries such as financial, legal and healthcare. It is also perfectly suited to sectors where employees dispersed over large areas need to share data quickly and securely, such as transportation and logistics, broadcast, and film production.

Key features and benefits of Transporter for Business include:

? “Anytime, anywhere” file access and sharing
? Total control over location and redundancy of data
? Elimination of privacy concerns linked to public cloud storage
? Automatic syncing data between Transporter systems
? Integration with Microsoft Active Directory
? Versioning, auditing and read-only controls included
? Provision up to 24TB of cloud accessible storage per Transporter unit
? No monthly or per user fees

“Transporter for Business appliances are 100% owned and managed by the company they belong to, which removes any uncertainty around the longevity, privacy or location of data,” said Dr. Geoff Barrall, CEO, Connected Data. “Because organisations have complete control over their Transporter hardware, they can also leverage their existing infrastructure and simply add more Transporters each time additional capacity is required. This way, they can scale their network as needed without ever having to pay for unused capacity or deal with increasing complexity and escalating monthly fees.”

British Olympic snowboarder and entrepreneur, Zoe Gillings-Brier uses Transporter for Business technology to securely share data and information with her coaching team and business partners, regardless of her location:

“Transporter provides me with the perfect private cloud solution for syncing, sharing and protecting my data,” said Gillings-Brier. “As a professional athlete, my schedule means I am regularly on the road between training and competitions. But through Transporter I can securely share all of my latest training data with my coaching team in the UK and around the world, keeping them fully up to date. Transporter also lets me share content with my business partners quickly and securely, without worrying about privacy issues or the ongoing subscription costs incurred when using public cloud services such as Dropbox.”

Transporter for Business Pricing

Transporter 15 (£2,000 ex VAT)
Transporter 15 offers 8TB of storage in a desktop-based appliance for up to 15 users.

Transporter 30 (£3,900 ex VAT)
Transporter 30 offers 12TB of storage capacity in a desktop-based appliance for up to 30 users.

Transporter 75 (£7,800 ex VAT)
Transporter 75 offers 12TB of storage capacity in a rack-mounted appliance for up to 75 users

Transporter 150 (£14,700 ex VAT)
Transporter 150 offers 24TB of storage capacity in a rack-mounted appliance for up to 150 users

About Connected Data
Connected Data, the creator of Transporter, the world’s first peer to peer private storage device is focused on providing elegantly designed solutions for businesses and professionals.

NovaBACKUP DataCenter 5.3.1 improves the flexibility, reliability, and scalability for backup & restore tasks within heterogeneous IT environments

AGOURA HILLS, CA – February 27, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — NovaStor, an international provider of award-winning backup solutions, announced today the release of NovaBACKUP DataCenter 5.3.1. With the update NovaStor continues to provide more flexibility and security within backup software for CIO’s, IT Service Provider, and administrators.

The new User Management tool provides IT administrators with the ability to specify the rights and rolls for either remote offices, company departments or dedicated technicians. To prevent accidental data loss and reduce complexity users can now define organizations within the company, and setup groups and users. Adding rights ensures that the user’s interface shows only the enabled menus and functions and therefore keeps the information relevant and easy to read.

With 8 new features, 33 improvements and many stability adjustments, NovaStor’s development team worked hard to extend the usability and the stability of NovaBACKUP DataCenter. Users can now rerun failed backup jobs directly from the reporting UI; independent and raw disks can now be excluded for VMware backups; and NovaBACKUP DataCenter recognizes Windows Mountpoints to backup logical drives without an assigned drive letter.

“Usually, we get a similar feedback from our customers. They are looking for an easy to use data protection solution that doesn’t break the bank, and also remains reliable, scalable, and stable.” says Mike Andrews, Managing Director at NovaStor Corporation. “Our mission is to provide the fastest, most scalable and cost-effective network backup & restore solution. Once again the new features of NovaBACKUP DataCenter 5.3.1 simplify the backup procedures for IT technicians and administrators.”

NovaBACKUP DataCenter is a hardware and storage agnostic network backup solution that protects IT environments with physical and/ or virtual machines running Windows and Linux. The key to NovaBACKUP DataCenter’s performance and scalability is its architecture that provides several mechanism for fault tolerance, peak performance and maximum data availability. A simple, all-inclusive licensing model keeps the IT budget in balance, and NovaStor engineers based in the US and Germany, offer local technical support (never outsourced) to make sure that the business critical data stays safe.

Despite broad agreement of the risks to business, only one third of UK firms ban staff from using public cloud services

LONDON, UK – February 27, 2015 – /BackupReview.info/ — Despite one third of UK firms banning public cloud from the workplace, its use appears endemic, unmanaged and unstoppable according to a new survey commissioned by Connected Data.

The survey of 100 UK businesses revealed stark concerns about the safety of the public cloud services, such as DropBox, Box and Amazon for sharing confidential data. However, despite this caution, the findings demonstrate that most employees’ activity via these platforms generally goes unmonitored and unchecked in 64% of businesses.

The vast majority (90%) of IT decision makers believe that sharing sensitive data in the public cloud poses some level of risk.

However, despite this inherent mistrust, only one third (33%) have banned staff from using public cloud. Of the firms that do ban the use of public cloud at work, over half (58%) admit they would not know whether their employees are using it anyway.

Other key findings include:

  • Over two thirds (69%) of businesses questioned believed that public cloud services were being used by some proportion of their workforce regardless of company policy (with 29% suspecting over half their employees of doing so)
  • More than a quarter (27%) rank use of public cloud as the greatest risk to their company data, above lost devices (25%), hacking (14%) and malicious staff behaviour (18%)
  • Meanwhile, well over a tenth (13%) of UK firms admitted they had lost or had confidential data exposed due to staff sharing it via public cloud. Worse, an additional 19% could not be certain whether this had happened to their business or not.

The survey results go on to reveal that little is being done to protect organisations or staff against careless behaviour.

  • Nearly half (48%) of those companies, which believe they are at risk, have not added guidelines to a staff manual
  • Even fewer firms provide training (36%) or tools (39%) on the topic of file and data sharing

You’re fired!
Staff at UK firms who break rules about public cloud usage in the workplace could be in for a big shock. More than a fifth (22%) of the firms interviewed said staff would be instantly dismissed for using public cloud while 40% would issue staff a written warning.

What’s driving staff to the public cloud?
The survey also looked at the drivers behind cloud usage. It found that the main reason employees risk using the public cloud is because they need to access files across devices (54%). Ease of use was considered the second highest driver (48%).

Dr. Geoff Barrall, CEO of Connected Data, commented, “While we shouldn’t be overly surprised at the levels of mistrust in public cloud, we should be concerned by a growing pattern of employee behaviour that puts sensitive company data at risk. Penalties to staff are serious, yet the need to share files across different devices is leading them to break company policy and put their jobs on the line. The survey highlights how important it is to address this dilemma before more company data is lost or exposed.”

Can private cloud solve the problem?
The survey coincides with the UK launch of Transporter for Business, the industry’s first private cloud appliance from Connected Data. Transporter for Business allows users to sync and share files privately. By offering employees the cloud features they enjoy and require, Transporter eliminates the temptation to use unauthorised public cloud solutions that could put sensitive business information at risk.

Barrall concluded: “Whilst we know employee behaviour cannot be changed overnight, there is a way to keep data safe and give employees the work tools they need. Private cloud solutions enable companies to take full responsibility by protecting their sensitive data whilst enabling their employees to do their jobs as efficiently as possible.”

KKR, Nationwide Insurance and AAA of Northern California use Box to power content and collaboration

LOS ALTOS, CA – February 26, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ –Box today announced Box for Financial Services, bringing tailored solutions, product enhancements, and partnerships to firms in the financial services industry. Box’s cloud content collaboration platform powers the secure sharing of sensitive data for some of the largest banks, insurance companies, and investment and advisory firms. Financial services customers include KKR & Co. L.P., Nationwide Insurance and AAA of Northern California, while new partners working with Box to meet the needs of the financial services industry include Bloomberg Vault, Capgemini and e-SignLive™ by Silanis.

“Because of the highly sensitive nature of the data it deals with and the strict compliance standards it’s held to, the Financial Services industry has been slow to embrace cloud and mobile technologies,” said Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO, Box. “However, leading firms are recognizing that mature cloud platforms not only offer agility and productivity, but also an opportunity for better security and visibility around their most valuable content. With Box for Financial Services, we’re making sure security and compliance concerns are no longer hurdles to information sharing and collaboration.”

More than 44,000 businesses, including 48% of the Fortune 500, trust the Box platform. With the launch of Box for Financial Services, Box will better meet the needs of businesses in this industry, including new customers like KKR & Co. L.P., Sierra Pacific Mortgage and First American Equipment Finance, which join hundreds of innovative firms such as Nationwide Insurance, AAA of Northern California, Guaranteed Rate and Encore Capital.

Box for Financial Services will offer tailored solutions to help businesses:

  • Accelerate mobile productivity by enabling portfolio management, document management and access to virtual data rooms from any device regardless of location;
  • Better manage risk and compliance by providing full data control in the cloud; and
  • Streamline key processes like claims processing and loan origination, allowing firms to focus on investors, clients, and policyholders to accelerate sales cycle.

“Leveraging cloud and mobile technologies to provide our employees with access to content at any time is key to our ability to build a sustainable competitive advantage and drive productivity across our organization,” said Ed Brandman, chief information officer at KKR & Co. L.P. “Box provides a secure collaboration platform that supports key business processes, improving operational efficiency while simultaneously meeting critical IT requirements for content management and security.”

New Product Capabilities for Financial Services Firms
Box also unveiled several new product enhancements to help financial services firms securely collaborate on sensitive data: retention management, watermarking and Box Enterprise Key Management (EKM). The company also announced that it is working toward supporting FINRA compliance for customers on its platform.

Retention Management
Box today introduced the beta of its retention management product, which enables organizations to comply with record retention requirements set by financial regulators by securing the creation and modification of documents.

Retention management provides:

  • Full visibility: Create and store financial documents or scan documents and attach metadata tags to specific types of data for easy retrieval and lookup.
  • Adjustable periods: Set retention policies that are enforceable and fix retention periods to govern how long documents are retained in Box.
  • File-level retention: If a file leaves a folder with a data retention schedule, the schedule will follow the file.

Watermarking
The Box watermarking tool allows financial services firms to mitigate risk and discourage data leaks, as well as maintain the ability to track a leak when it occurs.

With watermarking on Box:

  • Prospective investors can view financial documents as collaborators in a folder with each page of the document marked with an identifier for that user.
  • An anonymous user will see their IP address on every page of the document they are viewing and receive a notice that the file is confidential.
  • If a leak occurs as a result of a user taking screenshots of a document, an enterprise will be able to determine whose account and IP address was viewing the leaked document when the screenshots occurred.

Box Enterprise Key Management (EKM)
Recently announced, Box EKM, currently available in beta, enables the deepest levels of control around enterprise content without sacrificing the ease of use and powerful collaboration features of the Box platform.

FINRA
In Spring 2015, Box will allow customers to meet FINRA regulatory compliance standards with section 17a-4 of the SEC Act, which sets requirements for how electronic records are preserved in non-rewriteable, non-erasable formats, for specific periods of time. Box will provide the capability for IT administrators to apply customizable retention policies at an individual file level.

Financial Services Partners
Box works with an ecosystem of e-signature, security, governance and compliance partners to provide the most trusted services for customers as they manage their content in the cloud. For instance, recent e-signature partner, e-SignLive™ by Silanis, adds additional convenience, trust and security to e-signed documents. The solution allows Box financial services customers to keep their branding throughout the online transaction when it comes time to e-sign the document, as well as provides real-time electronic evidence from the signing process.

Box is also announcing a new integration with Bloomberg Vault File Analytics solution, a component of Bloomberg’s hosted information governance service that delivers enterprise compliance, eDiscovery and record-keeping solutions to financial services firms. This will allow firms using Box to leverage Bloomberg Vault to apply policy-based compliance, governance and control with comprehensive search and reporting across numerous data repositories in the enterprise. Bloomberg Vault provides financial services firms with the ability to meet SEC, FINRA, CFTC and global regulatory mandates, which span a variety of compliance demands related to files, documents, trades, and communication data.

“Due to recent cybersecurity incidents and compliance requirements, firms in the financial industry have been hesitant to move sensitive information into cloud services,” said Harald Collet, global business manager for Bloomberg Vault. “We are excited about our work with Box and the integration with Bloomberg Vault File Analytics as it enables firms to overcome these challenges while maintaining enterprise-wide compliance and governance capabilities. This empowers firms to achieve their business needs of cohesive collaboration and improve the way content is shared and managed, all while never losing insight into their ‘dark data’ that naturally grows over time.”

Additionally, Box and Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, are integrating the Box platform into their All Channel Experience (ACEs) Insurance Solution which brings custom app development, cloud integration, user adoption best practices and implementation services to the insurance industry. This solution allows the most complex IT environments to have the support and services they need for highly successful deployments.

Pricing and Availability
Retention Management and Box EKM are available in beta today and will be generally available Spring 2015. Watermarking and FINRA compliance will be available Spring 2015.

Cloudian HyperStore Software Helps Switzerland-based Casale Manage its Data with Easy-to-Use, Highly Scalable, S3-Compliant Hybrid Cloud Storage

FOSTER CITY, CA – February 26, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Cloudian, Inc., Cloudian, Inc., the leading provider of hybrid cloud storage solutions, announces Casale has installed Cloudian HyperStore software to help accelerate innovation among its geographically dispersed scientists.

One of the Industry’s Highest Software Defined Network (SDN) Certifications

SHREWSBURY, NJ – Feb. 27, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — InterCloud Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: ICLD), a single-source provider of end-to-end information technology (IT) and next-generation network solutions, to the service provider (carrier) and corporate enterprise markets, through cloud solutions and professional services announced today that they have achieved the status of VMware Network Virtualization Certification; one of the highest SDN certifications in the industry.

Network virtualization which is similar to server virtualization, enables IT to treat physical hosts as a pool of compute capacity. The network virtualization approach allows IT to treat their physical network as a pool of transport capacity that can be consumed and repurposed on demand. Network virtualization aligns to the evolution of cloud allowing customers to realize better agility, micro-segmentation, cost, choice, extensibility, and non-disruptive deployment.

Jonathan Shannon, VP of Engineering / Chief Technologist said, “This network virtualization certification is strategic to InterCloud Systems. As a VMware Enterprise Partner, InterCloud is authorized to resell in our cloud platform or legacy IT environments and provide expertise to its customers in technical Professional Services delivery.”

Accelerating Demand for Reliable, Secure Managed Cloud Backup Drives Extraordinary CloudBerry Lab Growth

NEWPORT BEACH, CA – Feb. 26, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — CloudBerry Lab™, a vendor of backup and management solutions for public cloud storage services, today released details of its record growth for fiscal year 2014.

IBM a leader “by a substantial margin” in evaluation of 13 suppliers; cloud services cited

ARMONK, NY – Feb. 25, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — IBM (NYSE: IBM) announced today that Forrester Research has positioned the company as the leading supplier in the global infrastructure outsourcing segment, based on an evaluation of most significant suppliers.

In a new report, “The Forrester Wave™: Global Infrastructure Outsourcing, Q1 2015,” IBM scored the highest or among the highest among 13 suppliers across all three high-level evaluation criteria: Strategy, Current Offering and Market Presence. Forrester recognized IBM’s vision for the future of infrastructure services, noting that cloud services has become a major element of IBM’s infrastructure management strategy.

Forrester Research named IBM the leading supplier in global infrastructure outsourcing, based on a survey of 13 top firms, noting IBM’s vision for cloud and the rise of hybrid cloud as a priority for clients. (Credit: IBM)

Forrester estimates the global infrastructure outsourcing opportunity is $187.5 billion worldwide, with North America comprising nearly 58 percent of this total. Infrastructure outsourcing services remain critically important as enterprises prepare their infrastructure for the digital age. Outsourcing providers are beginning to emphasize qualities that include predictability through analytics, self-healing with autonomic computing and automation, and self-service with adaptation to cloud models and use of service “stores.”

IBM leads the pack by a substantial margin, and views the current infrastructure management services market as the age of outcomes, IP, and automation, the report says. The report also notes IBM is pursuing a variety of initiatives, including automation with IBM Workload Automation and integration across systems of record and systems of engagement, and that since its acquisition of SoftLayer Technologies in 2013, cloud services have become a major element of its infrastructure management strategy.

“The model for enterprise IT is rapidly changing as more clients look to deploy new cloud-based systems of engagement and integrate them with their existing data center infrastructure,” said Richard Patterson, General Manager for Infrastructure Services at IBM. “We believe this Forrester Wave report is strong recognition of how IBM is leading this industry shift, and our success in helping clients design, build and run their increasingly hybrid IT environments to advance their business agenda.”

In the report, Forrester observes IBM’s “enormous market presence” — the largest of all the companies included in Forrester’s analysis. The report also says IBM has a very strong vision for the future of infrastructure services and a very well-balanced global delivery model.

The report notes that support for hybrid cloud computing tops the infrastructure outsourcing agenda: “A transition to a cloud-based outsourcing market is also clearly underway, although it’s still in its early stages. One manifestation of this shift entails a move from conventional infrastructure delivery to a cloud based approach. Meanwhile, suppliers are moving to encompass both conventional infrastructure delivery and cloud-based delivery from a service management perspective.”

Since its acquisition of SoftLayer in 2013, IBM has made cloud services a major component of its infrastructure services strategy. For example, IBM recently announced infrastructure services agreements with large enterprise clients including WPP, ABN Amro, Lufthansa and WOOX Innovations that will include the implementation of new cloud solutions into their existing IT infrastructure.

UK service provider Giacom has been selected by Microsoft to join their new Cloud Solution Provider programme as a 2-Tier Distributor and own the complete Office365 customer experience, including billing and technical support

HULL, UK – 26 February 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — UK based cloud service provider Giacom today announced it will be adding Microsoft’s Office365 to its MessageStream cloud marketplace for IT resellers.

The announcement is the result of Giacom’s successful inclusion into the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) programme as a 2-Tier Distributor. The programme allows Giacom to supply Office365 and Windows Intune subscriptions and own the complete client lifecycle, including billing, support and the customer experience.

“Including Office365 into our MessageStream marketplace will further expand our growing range of cloud services, providing a wider choice for IT support businesses, system integrators, telecom companies and service providers operating within Europe,” explains Giacom’s Managing Director Nick Marshall.

“We’re delighted to have been selected by Microsoft to join the Cloud Solution Provider programme, allowing Giacom to offer Office365 on a 2-tier distributor basis.”

Microsoft Corporate Vice President of the Worldwide Partner Group Phil Sorgen adds, “To meet the growing demand of our cloud-based solutions, we’re thrilled to expand the capabilities for cloud partners under the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider programme.

“By joining the programme, partners will deepen customer relationships and expand business opportunities in the cloud.”
Giacom’s MessageStream cloud marketplace is used by 2,500 partners, making it Europe’s largest channel-based cloud services platform. Giacom manages in excess of 90,000 Hosted Exchange mailboxes growing at 5,000 new seats each month. Other services in the cloud marketplace include Hosted SharePoint, Hosted File Backup and Hosted Email Security, offered at wholesale prices and fully re-brandable.

Matthew Barton from Exmouth based Ostrich IT and Giacom Partner believes Office365 within the MessageStream cloud marketplace will help his business attract new customers: “We offer a comprehensive range of support services and use Giacom’s technology to provide a selection of own-branded products in our portfolio. With Office365 in MessageStream, we’ll now be able to take on-board customers that exclusively want Microsoft’s suite of cloud services. This opens a whole new recurring revenue stream for our business.”

Giacom is expected to introduce Office365 into its MessageStream cloud marketplace in early April, and is currently taking enquiries from service providers that are looking to resell Office365 and Windows Intune to their European customers.

WOBURN, MA – February 26, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Mobile devices are more popular than ever but their owners still underestimate the danger they might encounter. According to the Consumer Security Risk survey conducted by Kaspersky Lab and B2B International — http://bit.ly/1DeJ9Kr , 28 percent of participants shared that they know nothing or very little about mobile malware. Underestimating the danger of cyber threats on mobile devices is also risky; 26 percent of those surveyed said they were aware of cyber threats but didn’t worry about them.

The survey shows that only 58 percent of Android-based smartphones and 63 percent of Android tablets are protected by an anti-virus solution, while 31 percent of smartphones and 41 percent of tablets are not even password-protected. Their users’ risky behavior might stem from the fact that 28 percent of them are not aware of the existence of cyberthreats targeting mobiles and 26 percent of those surveyed said they were aware but didn’t worry about it.

To make matters worse 18 percent of unprotected Android-based smartphones contain information that attracts cybercriminals: PIN codes for bank cards, passwords to online banking systems and other financial data. 24 percent of survey participants store on their smartphones passwords to social networks, personal and work email, VPN and other sensitive resources. They also store personal emails (49%), work emails (18%), as well as the “data that they would not want anyone to see” (10%) on their smartphones.

According to the survey, Android users encounter online threats more often than the users of Windows-based devices*. The latter also know more about the dangers and tend to protect their devices in 9 out of 10 cases. Thus the survey found that over a 12-month period 41 percent of smartphone users and 36 percent of tablet users faced malicious applications, 18 percent of smartphone users and 24 percent of tablet users had their online service accounts hacked, while financial cyberattacks affected 43 percent of smartphone users and 50 percent of tablet users.

“It is not surprising that mobile users are facing online threats more often now: devices are capable of doing so much more, and many more people are using them, so of course they will attract fraudsters. To avoid falling victim to scams, users are advised to protect their devices against cyber threats and be especially careful with any sensitive data stored on them,” said Victor Yablokov, Head of Mobile Product Line at Kaspersky Lab.

Kaspersky Internet Security for Android safeguards Android-based devices from known and new mobile threats. In addition to the anti-malware and anti-phishing protection, it includes the Anti-Theft and the Privacy Protection technologies. The solution does not significantly affect the performance of the operating system and battery life.

To fill these knowledge gaps, Kaspersky Lab has produced a video on the evolution of mobile danger. Further information, including data on mobile threats, the different types of threats and methods of infection can be found in “The Enemy on your Phone” report on Securelist.com.


Video – The enemy on your phone: evolution of mobile threats

* Hereinafter, it refers to the users who named a device working on a given platform their main device to access the Internet. Due to the fact that people can use several devices on different platforms at the same time, they may face the threats mentioned in the text on any of them.

About Kaspersky Lab
Kaspersky Lab is the world’s largest privately held vendor of endpoint protection solutions. The company is ranked among the world’s top four vendors of security solutions for endpoint users*. Throughout its more than 17-year history Kaspersky Lab has remained an innovator in IT security and provides effective digital security solutions for large enterprises, SMBs and consumers.

The rating was published in the IDC report “Worldwide Endpoint Security 2014–2018 Forecast and 2013 Vendor Shares (IDC #250210, August 2014).

Stored Technology Solutions, Inc. disrupts market standard by becoming area’s first provider to offer business customers unlimited data storage plans and for less than $100

GLENS FALLS, NY – February 26, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Stored Technology Solutions Inc. (StoredTech), the area’s leading provider of IT managed services, announced today that they have launched Unlimited Data Backup Plans for business customers. In a bold move that disrupts the market standard of charging per Gigabyte of data, the company is now offering unlimited safe and secure cloud backup to businesses for only $99 per server per month or $49 per workstation per month.

The company says that their departure from the standard per Gigabyte pricing model is [in-part] in response to an unsettling trend that’s emerged whereby price-conscience businesses will often put some of their data at risk by being selective about which business data they backup – this all in an attempt to save some cost. This leaves them less than 100% protected from data loss scenarios that could put their entire business in jeopardy.

“Businesses will often let this standard pricing model of per Gig affect what they choose to backup,” says StoredTech President and CEO, Mark Shaw. “This is particularly true with the SMB market where businesses need to be more frugal. We want our customers to be able to backup all of their data in order to provide their businesses with true disaster recovery and peace-of-mind.”

At a time when more than half of SMBs surveyed admit to not performing daily backups, Shaw says that we need to change the mindset. “The reality is that data and data backup are critical in today’s business environment. Businesses of every size need to start thinking of data protection more like homeowners insurance, you may hate paying the monthly bill, but if your home were to suffer a fire, you’d be thankful that the insurance is there to help you. Backup is the most important, efficient and cost effective way to protect yourself from a data loss that could put your entire business in jeopardy – it’s not just for the ‘big companies’ to worry about anymore.”

StoredTech’s aggressive new unlimited pricing is not just for their future customers, the company has rolled its existing customers on to the new plans as well, saving some hundreds of dollars per month.

SheetLabels.com has been a StoredTech customer since 2008. As an international provider of blank and custom printed labels, SheetLabels.com relies heavily on ecommerce and requires strong backend management and redundancies to keep their operations running smoothly.

“Our data is extremely important to us and I wouldn’t be able to sleep at night if it were not 100% protected,” said Adam Gray, president of SheetLabels.com. “We were shocked and delighted when StoredTech contacted us recently to let us know about their new unlimited data backup plans. The unlimited vaulting will save us approximately $400-$600 a month from our previous plan, for a total annual reduction of somewhere around 75%!”

This announcement comes after an impressive year of perpetual growth for the company who nearly doubled its staff since early 2013 and expanded its geographic reach and service offerings by opening offices in Malone, Saratoga Springs, Plattsburg and New Jersey -all while further enhancing its portfolio through strategic acquisitions.

AUSTIN, TX – Feb. 24, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Caringo® today announced that its software-defined object storage, Swarm, is the foundation for a security and data integrity-focused cloud storage service offered by Telefonica.

Telefonica is one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world in terms of market capitalization and number of customers. From its consolidated position in the sector, and with fixed telephony and mobile broadband as key areas that support future growth, the company focuses its strategy on securing its leadership in the digital world. Present in 24 countries and with a customer base of more than 320 million customers, Telefonica has a strong presence in Europe and Latin America, important industrial alliances and a leading global scale which positions the company to capture growth opportunities.

After an extensive multi-year search, Telefonica selected Caringo Swarm because of Swarm’s unique mix of data protection flexibility, compliance features, and extensive protocol support. Also integral in Telefonica’s selection was Swarm’s focus on automation and symmetric architecture that eliminates tedious manual management often found in file system based storage solutions.

“We selected Caringo Swarm because of the software’s stability, enterprise feature set, and continued consistent innovation. Swarm will help us differentiate our service offerings while enabling us to scale our enterprise cloud storage services to a global web-scale service,” said Juan Manuel Moreno, Global Cloud Director at Telefonica.

With multiple petabyte growth forecasts over the next few years, Telefonica was challenged to deliver an enterprise cloud storage service that could meet their aggressive growth plans while offering the most flexible data protection, compliance and data access services.

“Being selected by such a well known and respected international organization like Telefonica after their extensive search is a true testament to Swarm’s unique mix of enterprise features, resilience and scale,” said Mark Goros, CEO of Caringo. “We go far beyond your basic object store, focusing on eliminating complexity for our customers and providing real, demonstrable value which was key in being selected. We look forward to continuing to strengthen our relationship with Telefonica and helping them achieve their goal of value through service.”

Telefonica has deployed in its TIER IV Datacenter in Alcala (SPAIN) a Caringo-based solution that combines Caringo Swarm, the market-leading object storage software, with Dell servers, Force 10 switches and Sonic Wall firewalls to deliver a secure cloud storage service with Enterprise-grade durability and high availability. The service is provided, in a first phase, by Telefonica España & acens (http://www.acens.com/cloud/cloud-storage) through Telefonica’s Datacentre in Alcala; one of the world-leading datacenters with Tier IV Gold certification offering, the highest levels of reliability and security. As all data is held within Spain, not an external country, the service is truly unique for the Spanish market.

Carbon Media Group Experiences High Availability Performance and Continuous Uptime

HOUSTON, TX – February 24, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — SoftNAS, known as the #1 best-selling NAS in the cloud, today announced a No Downtime Guarantee Program for SoftNAS customers running on Amazon Web Services (AWS). The program guarantees a 99.999% uptime SLA (service level agreement) for SoftNAS Cloud software and storage services. SoftNAS customers on AWS will benefit from this protection when operating with production workloads within SoftNAS best practices.

As one of numerous SoftNAS and AWS joint customers, Carbon Media Group, a leading producer of outdoor online content reaching 500 websites, continues to experience a robust return on investment. “Faced with a potential interruption, we were able to avoid any downtime or financial loss because SoftNAS performed flawlessly during the zone reboot process,” said Rick Christy, vice president and chief architect of Carbon Media Group. “We never went down. The solution paid for and justified itself.”

“Very short recovery times and very high availability are becoming target service-level attributes for a growing number of enterprise applications in many organizations. In the evolution of digital business over the next three years, these attributes will transition from being highly desirable targets to absolutely must-have essentials. They will be essential contributors in meeting the challenges of sustaining brand loyalty and brand value, especially in a world in which changing providers can be as simple a task as switching apps,” said Roberta Witty, Vice President in Gartner Research, et al.[1]

Anxieties around data loss and downtime are a paramount IT concern, as a recent study on data protection by Vanson Bourne showed. Of surveyed enterprises, 64 percent experienced data loss or downtime in the past year, and 71 percent were not confident in their ability to recover after a disruption. Despite backup and disaster recovery protocols, downtime consequences on businesses can be severe.

“We strive to offer our customers peace of mind as they use SoftNAS and AWS. The money-back guarantee of one month of SoftNAS service fees is offered to prove our commitment to quality, business stability and the enterprise-grade reliability available today from cloud computing,” said Rick Braddy, CEO, SoftNAS.

To qualify for the No Downtime Guarantee program, SoftNAS customers must: run a minimum version of 3.2.3, implement SNAP HA with best practices, and register the product.

Backup Service Provider Brings Innovative Backup Technology and Performance-Based Pricing Model to the Public Sector

TORONTO and FARNBOROUGH,UK – February 25, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider since 1986 today announced that UK Backup, a Farnborough, England-based backup solutions provider, has partnered with Asigra to deliver the first recovery performance-based cloud backup pricing option through G-Cloud. Advantages of the new service include low up front and lower long term costs and end-to-end protection of customer data across physical, virtual, cloud and mobile computing platforms.

Tweet This: @UKBackupLtd Brings Asigra Recovery License Model to UK Public Sector Via G-Cloud – http://bit.ly/1gVbOuu #cloud #backup #gcloud

G-Cloud, the online marketplace where UK public sector bodies can review and buy IT services on the Digital Marketplace, allows UK Backup to deliver cutting edge solutions to the public sector via this framework. Through the G-Cloud 6 framework, customers have access to a range of online backup and hybrid/private backup solutions. Offered as a fully managed public cloud, hybrid or private cloud solution, UK Backup provides an end-to-end solution that not only makes protecting information easy but ensures that users can quickly restore data when required. UK Backup is based out of a high security campus in Farnborough, UK where backup data resides in an IL3, ISO:27001, BS 25999 and ISO:9001 accredited facility. The company is supported by a team of engineers to ensure data is available on demand.

To differentiate their organization’s backup offering, UK Backup is pricing its backup services based on the annual percentage of data that customers recover instead of the amount they backup. To accomplish this, the UK service provider is leveraging the innovative patent-pending Asigra Recovery License Model® (RLM), giving IT professionals the ability to better control backup and recovery costs even as organizational data volumes grow. With this approach, fees are based on a Recovery Performance Score that is calculated over a 12-month period (every 6 months in the first year). A waiver is provided for the single largest recovery event in any licensing term and only successful recoveries are included in the calculations. The fair, transparent and predictable pricing model provides immediate savings of 40 percent and up to 70 percent over time.

Asigra is the first cloud backup and recovery software provider to deliver a viable recovery performance-based pricing option for backup. The RLM is enabled by utilizing data recovery analytics and insights that were not previously possible. The end result is what many experts agree is an evolving movement toward performance-based pricing that aligns with actual business value rather than inefficient capacity-based usage.

“In today’s data rich IT environments, businesses are confronted with rising backup costs due to the growing volume of data to protect. Arguing for price concessions with backup providers is an unsustainable approach as pricing margins fall,” said James Chillman, CEO, UK Backup. “The Asigra Recovery License Model provides a fair and transparent way to price backup and recovery that rewards IT organizations that perform well and recover less. At the end of the day, it will be our customers who benefit from this partnership which brings greater efficiency and value to the backup equation.”

“Service providers and end-customers who make the switch to recovery performance-based pricing will find a much fairer approach and one that reflects true business value,” said Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President, Asigra. “Combined with a technology platform built for comprehensive data protection and recovery assurance, Asigra Cloud Backup is a top tier solution for service providers. UK Backup’s leadership in delivering this technology promises them increased success in this space.”

New Transporter 15 and 30 Storage Devices Extend Business File Sharing Features, Performance and Capacity to Small Businesses, Departments and Remote Offices

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – February 25, 2015 – /BackupReview.info/ — Connected Data today released two new private cloud file sync and share appliances that have been designed to deliver critical business-class file sharing features, performance and capacity to small businesses, departments and remote offices. The Transporter 15 and 30 appliances work to preserve the privacy and control of business data while offering users the same benefits and experience as public cloud solutions such as Dropbox and Box.

Designed to protect and secure business data on-site, the new Transporter appliances, support employees’ needs to sync, access and share files from any of their authorized computers or mobile devices while avoiding the backend costs that commonly plague traditional cloud implementations by leveraging their existing infrastructure. Because data is 100% private and stored only onsite, it is the only “cloud” file sync and share solution that meets the compliance needs of legal, financial, government and healthcare organizations. And, because it retains data locally, it meets increasing data locality legislation in countries including Canada, China, Germany, Japan and Russia.

According to an ESG report, Online File Sharing (OFS) and Collaboration: Deployment Model Trends, simple, easy-to?manage file sharing for collaboration and improved productivity has become an expected part of the user experience in today’s corporate environments. However, organizations struggle to control unintended access to sensitive corporate data while maintaining expected performance characteristics. In fact, when asked about factors driving interest in the ability to retain file data on-premises, more than half of both current public cloud OFS users and potential hybrid or on-premises OFS adopters indicated they wanted flexibility and control over where data is stored. (1)

“While file sync and share technology has greatly improved workforce productivity, its public cloud implementation creates increasing compliance, security and data protection challenges for IT,” said Terri McClure, Senior Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “Many enterprises still want to remain in control of corporate data resources and keep some or all data on premises. Connected Data’s line of Transporter private sync and share appliances have directly addressed these requirements by giving users the file sharing flexibility they want while also supporting IT’s demands for information security and control.”

The new Transporter appliances are an extension of Connected Data’s product suite for the delivery of private file sync and share solutions that also includes the Transporter 75 and Transporter 150. First unveiled in October 2014 to serve the needs of mid-sized enterprises, Transporter 75 and 150 are the first private file sync and share appliances to combine the modern file management features of public cloud storage services with the visibility and control offered by a network-attached storage (NAS) system from vendors such as NetApp. With Transporter, Transporter 15, Transporter 30, Transporter 75 and Transporter 150, Connected Data now offers a complete range of private cloud file sync and share solutions for consumers and businesses of every size.

“The file sync and share market has revolutionized the way users manage and share business content,” said Jim Sherhart, Vice President Marketing, Connected Data. “But the value of file sharing doesn’t come from the cloud – quite the opposite. The value of file sync and share technology is actually inhibited by the lack of security and jurisdictional restrictions inherent with cloud implementations. With our new Transporter appliances, we separate the value of file sync and share technology from the obstacles of the cloud. By putting flexible file management technology into private and secure appliances, we are delivering all the file sharing features users demand with the security and control IT needs.”

The Transporter 15 and Transporter 30 appliances deliver superior security benefits for on-premise cloud and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). The systems support BYOD applications including Transporter Mac App, Transporter Windows App, Transporter iOS App and Transporter Android App. All Transporters are compatible with one another, so businesses can easily leverage any combination of appliances to achieve their file sync and share business objectives.

Additional Transporter benefits include:
• “Anytime, anywhere” file access and sharing
• Total control over location and redundancy of data including multi-site replication
• Elimination of the privacy concerns with public cloud storage
• Automatically syncs data between Transporter appliances
• Integrates with Microsoft Active Directory
• Includes versioning, auditing and read-only controls
• Provides up to 24TB of cloud accessible storage per node
• No monthly or per user fees

More than one third of customers have upgraded to the latest iteration of Veeam’s award-winning availability solution, with upgrades taking a ‘matter of minutes’; customers, prospects and partners have downloaded at a rate of more than 1,200 per day

BAAR, SWITZERLAND – February 25, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Veeam® Software, the innovative provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Modern Data Center™, today announced that initial customer adoption of Veeam Availability Suite TM v8 has exceeded all expectations.  Thirty thousand (30,000) organizations registered pre-launch interest in the solution, illustrating the growing requirement for companies to deliver the Always-On Business™, and within its first 90 days of release more than 36 percent of existing customers (45,000) upgraded to Veeam Availability Suite v8.  In addition, wider interest in the solution has been phenomenal, with customers, prospects and partners downloading at a rate of more than 1,200 downloads per day.

When specifically asked about the upgrade experience to the new version:

  • Almost two thirds of organizations stated that the upgrade process took a “matter of minutes”
  • Compared to upgrading with other software vendors, 94 percent said that Veeam Availability Suite v8 set a new standard in simplicity
  • Furthermore, 91 percent of customers handled the upgrade process internally with no help from an external consultant, thereby illustrating its ease of use
  • Nearly three quarters of respondents indicated that the v8 release exceeded their expectations or they were very satisfied since completing the upgrade process
  • Top features/benefits were Veeam Explorer™ for Microsoft Active Directory (21 percent), enhancements to Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange (19 percent), Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SQL Server (18 percent) and replication enhancements (17 percent)

“Today’s users are more demanding than ever before, generating ever-increasing amounts of data and they expect 24/7 access to applications and data – this places an immense burden on IT to deliver,” said Ratmir Timashev, CEO at Veeam.  “Organizations that fail to deal with this ‘availability gap’ [the gap between the requirements of the Always-On Business and IT’s ability to effectively deliver] will falter in the coming year.  Veeam is committed to addressing the availability gap through innovation, and Veeam Availability Suite v8 tackles this issue head-on.  Customer adoption has been strong and initial feedback in the solution’s first-quarter on the market has been outstanding.  We are excited at what Veeam Availability Suite v8 can offer our users and it seems that they [our customers] share our enthusiasm.”

According to recent research, 82 percent of CIOs admit that they are unable to meet their business’s need for immediate, always-on access to IT services. This availability gap has immediate costs: application failure costs enterprises more than $2 million a year in lost revenue, productivity, opportunities and data irretrievably lost through backups failing to recover.  Veeam Availability Suite v8 bridges the availability gap by providing customers a new kind of solution, an availability solution, delivering recovery time and point objectives (RTPO™) of less than 15 minutes for ALL applications and data.

With more than 200 new features and enhancements, Veeam Availability Suite v8 leverages the technologies of the modern data center: virtualization, modern storage and cloud. It provides five key capabilities enabling the Always-On Business, which are:

  • High-Speed Recovery: Rapid recovery of what you want, the way you want it.  For example, user can restore quickly and easily from Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, NetApp and HP storage snapshots and more with Veeam Explorers™
  • Data Loss Avoidance: Near-continuous data protection (near-CDP) and streamlined disaster recovery; for example, users can create ultra-fast backups from NetApp and HP storage snapshots with Built-in WAN Acceleration to get backups off site up to 50x faster.  Additionally, one can create fast and secure cloud backup with Veeam Cloud Connect as well as end-to-end encryption which secures data during backup, in flight and at rest
  • Verified Protection: Guaranteed recovery of every file, application or virtual server, every time.
  • Leveraged Data: Using backup data to create an exact copy of your production environment.
  • Complete Visibility: Proactive monitoring and alerting of issues before operational impact.

What users say about Veeam Availability Suite v8:
“This marriage of two technologies [Veeam Availability Suite v8 with NetApp integration] is like Peanut Butter & Banana sandwiches to Elvis,” said Nick Howell, Virtualization Solutions Architect at NetApp.

“We consider Veeam Cloud Connect [as part of Veeam Availability Suite v8] to be a real game-changer, offering exceptional flexibility for backup storage,” said Nicki Pereria, CTO at Zettagrid.

“Installing Veeam Availability Suite v8 was a breeze compared to our previous solution,” said Mario Anger, Sr. Manager – Systems, at The University of British Columbia.  “The upgrade was seamless and we conservatively predict that it [Veeam Availability Suite v8] will reduce our backup window by at least 70 percent.  One of the main reasons we engaged with Veeam for this upgrade was its NetApp integration, and we have high hopes for how the deployment will transform our operations.”

“Thanks to Veeam Availability Suite v8 and its storage integration with NetApp, we finally managed to complete the backup infrastructure refresh project we started more than a year ago,” stated Flavio Gatto, IT Manager at Doimo Cityline S.r.l.  “Leveraging NetApp storage snapshots to make backups and restores with Veeam translates to real value for our company.  We now sleep well knowing our data is properly protected.”

“I have never used an availability application that I was this impressed with… until now,” commented Samuel Sanders, Assistant Vice President – Information Technology at Surrey Bank and Trust.  “[Of Veeam Availability Suite v8] The ease of use; the intuitiveness of the interface, the feature set. It has all the features we need and nothing we don’t. In an industry with so many mediocre solutions, it is a breath of fresh air. Finally, someone has created the perfect backup, replication and disaster recovery suite.”

VeeamON 2015: The World’s Premier Data Center Availability Event, will take place October 26–29, 2015 at the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, NV. For the second consecutive year, Veeam will bring together industry-leading experts, Veeam customers and partners who will learn about enabling the Always-On Business. Pre-registration is now open.

SANTA CLARA, CA – February 25, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — NaviSite, Inc., a Time Warner Cable company, today announced the opening of a new state-of-the-art enterprise-class data center located in Santa Clara, California. The new data center will enable NaviSite to meet growing demands for its enterprise-class Cloud and Managed Services from existing and new customers. This facility, which is owned by data center solution provider Digital Realty (NYSE: DLR), will join NaviSite’s fabric of nine existing data centers across the U.S. and U.K., all of which are designed to provide a resilient, secure, high-performance environment for business applications and mission critical data.

“NaviSite has maintained a strong presence on the West Coast for more than a decade with our San Jose data center. The Silicon Valley area is a hot-bed for innovation and the development of the new Santa Clara facility is aimed at enabling the growing demand for our portfolio of cloud-enabled enterprise hosting solutions,” said Sumeet Sabharwal, General Manager, NaviSite. “In addition, the data center will provide dedicated access to TWC’s state-of-the-art network backbone, enabling our customers with a comprehensive portfolio of both cloud and network services.”

The new data center will support NaviSite’s full portfolio of services across colocation, cloud-enabled managed hosting, and application management, and also host NaviSite’s next generation Cloud platform. The 3.6MW facility is structured into three secure, standalone data halls, each designed to run independently and equipped with its own dedicated power and cooling, and multiple levels of redundancy across all the critical infrastructure components, including power and cooling.

The site utilizes custom-engineered highly efficient air side economization and cooling, reducing environmental impact while providing maximum cooling efficiency. All systems for each data hall are contained in separate rooms dedicated to the hall they serve. Further, new cabinet systems, Power Distribution Units, and cage works have been developed to lower costs and improve operational efficiency and maximize capacity. The ADA-compliant facility also features new structural and seismic upgrades including a new roof, and is located outside the 100-year flood area.

NaviSite’s recent cloud computing and infrastructure survey reaffirmed that security continues to be a top concern as more enterprises look to migrate their IT workloads to a cloud-based infrastructure. To meet these concerns, NaviSite employs an extensive array of multi-tiered physical and logical security best practices across all its data centers to ensure its customers’ data and virtual environments are safeguarded, including a centralized global security operations center to monitor all the data centers. NaviSite’s Santa Clara facility is designed to incorporate all these best practices, including dual authentication access controls, biometric readers, video surveillance, and a comprehensive suite of logical security services.

“The Santa Clara facility incorporates the latest data center technology for efficient operations,” said Digital Realty Sales Director Chris Coleman. “We were delighted to work with NaviSite on this project, which is their third data center site with us. We worked closely to ensure the Santa Clara site meets their strict operational, design, and security standards. The facility undergoes a stringent SOC2 audit on a yearly basis to ensure processes and procedures meet Digital Realty and industry standards.”

In addition, NaviSite and Digital Realty have also formalized a joint sales alliance, thereby enabling Digital Realty customers to benefit from NaviSite’s suite of cloud services located in Digital Realty facilities, as well as equipping NaviSite with a world class Data Center partner for its future needs.
