Report finds iland receives highest scores possible in the categories of data security, pricing, service levels and contract terms

LONDON, UK – April 19th, 2017 — / — iland, an award-winning global cloud service provider of secure and compliant cloud hosting, disaster recovery (DR) and backup services, today announced that it has been named a “leader” in Forrester Research, Inc.’s report, “The Forrester Wave™: Disaster-Recovery-As-A-Service Providers, Q2, 2017.”

The Forrester report states, “[Infrastructure & Operations] leaders are increasingly responsible for supporting their firms’ digital businesses and are often measured by the effectiveness of customer engagement. DRaaS promises to help I&O pros build a resilient technology infrastructure so they can deliver always-on services where downtimes are either imperceptible or last just a few seconds.”

In Forrester’s evaluation, iland received the highest scores possible in the categories of data security, pricing, service levels and contract terms.

The Forrester report states, iland DRaaS services are delivered “using Double Take, Veeam, and Zerto. Its self-service console integrates the underpinning replication solutions and makes it easy for customers to perform all operations on a single console. The iland Secure Cloud Console automatically measures the RPO and displays it over time – customers can set alerts in the event of a breach of a pre-set service-level agreement – and offers embedded security and compliance reporting. Once failover is executed, systems are scanned regularly for viruses, vulnerabilities, file integrity, firewall events, web reputation, application control, and intrusions. Upon failover, customers immediately gain access to built-in seven-day backups, providing additional resiliency. [It] works with [Business Continuity] consultants that evaluate DRaaS options and provider recommendations. It also has an impressive roadmap.”

The iland Secure DRaaS solutions are part of a suite of Secure Cloud services, which include cloud backup and cloud hosting (IaaS) delivered to a global customer base from data centres in the Americas, Europe and Asia. Customers can replicate both virtual and physical environments to the production-quality iland cloud and perform non-intrusive testing and recovery.

“The economies of iland’s DRaaS cost model, inexpensive bandwidth, and advanced replication technologies have made enterprise grade DR available to the masses. As a result, many organisations are new to cloud-based DR, so it’s critical that we guide our customers to deploy cloud-friendly architectures and follow best practices” said Brian Ussher, president and co-founder of iland. “Every iland customer is assigned a project manager and an experienced technical team of DRaaS and network specialists skilled in managing the most complex deployments. Additionally, iland continues to invest in our Secure Cloud Console to increase the visibility, security and reliability of our DRaaS offerings. We are proud of this recognition by Forrester and honored by our customers’ and partners’ continued loyalty and support.”

Last month, iland announced the latest release of their Secure Cloud Services, which encompassed support for Model Contract Clauses and the U.S. and U.K. Privacy Shield Frameworks that address the challenges of the constantly changing cloud compliance and data privacy regulations in addition to new features to help customers obtain more visibility into cloud billing and performance management functionality.
