Case Study: Williams De Broë Invests in Secure Cloud Backup

London, UK, September 7, 2011 –/– As a comprehensive provider of investment services, Williams de Broë faced several key difficulties when ensuring the safety of its business critical data. With seven sites across the UK, the geographical dispersion of its staff and the spread of sensitive data meant that any data being backed up from multiple sites would require an enterprise level solution that could cope with the growing demands from a complex corporate network.

Following a reassessment of its internal backup services, the company recognised the need to address these issues. This prompted a reallocation of its data backup to SecurStore, a specialist provider of automated and managed cloud backup and recovery services. By entrusting its backup to SecurStore, it has allowed the organisation to focus more on its primary business objectives.

Scalable Data Management

Leveraging its cloud expertise, SecurStore worked with Williams de Broë to ensure the full protection of its data across its UK sites. SecurStore’s multiple tier storage meant critical data was stored on the primary tier for instant and rapid recovery, whilst noncritical data could be automatically moved to the secondary tier, otherwise known as Backup Lifecycle Management (BLM) for recovery within 24 hours. This unique concept meant Williams de Broe has a sustainable backup solution for many years, despite natural data growth.

As Williams de Broë is FSA regulated and SecurStore is certified by British Standard Institute for ISO 27001, this represented an obvious fit for data backup due to government regulations becoming more firm on offsite storage. By ensuring the online protection of its data, Williams de Broë has positioned itself to deal with any potential disaster situation. The company now benefits from the knowledge that it can continue its business with minimal cost or technological hindrance in the case of a disaster.

“As a FSA regulated company we were looking for a solution which could fulfil our backup needs, protect our sensitive data and also follow strict compliance protocols. SecurStore met all our criteria; they had an agentless based solution, ISO 27001 certification plus excellent 24/7 support. All this, coupled with a multi-tier storage model, meant our costs would be sustainable long term with a technically advanced backup solution. No other provider offered this bespoke offering which is crucial to the long term existence of our business.” Dave Walker – Network Manager at Williams de Broë

“Using SecurStore’s Cloud Backup and Recovery services has improved the efficiency of our organisation and having this support in place has allowed us to focus on other areas of the business, therefore saving time, money and resources which would have otherwise been focused elsewhere.” Dave Walker – Network Manager at Williams de Broë
