INDIANAPOLIS, IN – November 4, 2014 — / — Bluelock, a managed cloud hosting and recovery provider delivering infrastructure, software and solutions with the flexibility to handle complex problems, today announces new data protection services and enhancements designed to address the increasing demand for companies who want to host or recover high risk, high security applications in the cloud.

“Businesses are increasingly being asked to guarantee the security and protection of their data and applications,” explains Bluelock COO Martin Van Buren. “Bluelock’s commitment to providing solid data protection for hosting and recovery workloads ensures reliable security for businesses so they can focus on more strategic projects.”

Bluelock now offers encrypted storage in all datacenter zones, which increases security and performance for new and existing customers. Bluelock has upgraded all East Zone (Indianapolis, IN) storage tiers to provide encryption at-rest. This premium feature is included as a standard benefit for all workloads hosted in Indianapolis, IN, and is an upgrade option for customers with workloads in Bluelock’s West Zone (Las Vegas, NV).

Bluelock has also added a To-Disk Managed Backup Service option to its Managed Backup Services suite, enabling customers to better align the level of backup protection to the importance of the application and data retention requirements. Bluelock’s Managed Backup Services are designed to enable IT teams to focus on higher priority strategic objectives, while Bluelock manages the day-to-day backup operations for Bluelock-hosted workloads.

To-Tape Managed Backup Service allows customers to receive full 365-day off-site retention of backups as a standard feature while enjoying a predictable, fixed monthly cost. For workloads requiring more customized retention lengths.

To-Disk Managed Backup Service allows customers to choose between a 30-day or 90-day on-site retention plan that offers a variable, controllable monthly cost model to promote flexibility.

According to Gartner’s, “Agenda Overview for Small and Midsize Business IT Strategy, 2014”, “Initiatives that are top priorities in the midmarket for 2014 include:

  • Virtualization (both server and desktop), with the primary goal to further optimize their IT infrastructures
  • Storage projects, including the deployment and upgrades of storage area networks, modernization of their data recovery platforms and disaster recovery
  • Firewall upgrades, intrusion prevention, cloud-based security services and mobile security[1]

“Bluelock’s recent investments are centered on serving midmarket IT teams and business leaders who don’t have time or resources to manage all of the complex details of their high-risk, high-security workloads,” explains Bluelock Product Solution Director Ben Miller. “Encrypted storage included as a standard feature in the East Zone and the expanded Managed Backup Services suite will allow those teams to focus on more strategic business initiatives while their trusted partner Bluelock expertly manages the complex details and provides insight to help them stay focused on their business.”
