VIS Insurance Moves to the Cloud for Cost Effective Data Backup

London, UK, September 27, 2012 – / — VIS Insurance Ltd (, one of Iceland’s leading providers of non-life insurance services, implemented Securstore’s market leading Asigra Cloud Backup & Recovery solution to safeguard its business critical data. The company has been a long-term Securstore customer and protects a large amount of SQL data. It also entrusts a substantial amount of standard media, as well as Lotus Notes, Exchange and Sharepoint data.

Stefan Hjalmarsson, Senior System Administrator, said, “For three years we’ve been using Securstore’s solution. Originally, we had a tape backup system, but decided to move to a modern cloud based option for safer offsite backup of our data. We needed something that was both flexible and user friendly – Securstore matched these needs perfectly. Strong support was also a key requirement and Securstore has more than delivered in that area.”

Improved International Regulatory Compliance
Securstore’s Cloud Backup means VIS can restore data quicker than before and protect every data type necessary. By using a provider that is ISO 27001 accredited, VIS is also compliant with all international data regulations. This compliance guarantees the sensitivity and confidentiality of VIS’ data across the organisation.

Hjalmarsson continued, “We’ve been extremely impressed with the user friendliness and ease of use of Securstore’s Asigra solution. Securstore has an excellent reputation for the onus it puts on data security and customer service. It doesn’t matter if it is a weekend or holiday, whenever we’ve had configuration queries, support requests or needed to add machines to the backup plan, Securstore has solved issues quickly and politely. The 24/7 support service has been a real indicator of the company’s quality.”

Secure, Encrypted Cloud Backup
Securstore’s unique solution has reduced backup costs and simplified VIS’ data billing. The company now has a clearer overview of how much it is spending every month on data protection and business continuity. This clarity lets VIS better predict future backup costs for its 250 employees. VIS also has the option to backup mobiles and laptop data using Securstore’s lite client. Finally, having a scalable system means data can grow with the business and at an affordable rate that is easy to forecast.
