Leek United Building Society is backing up its internet connection through dual points of contact as part of a broad internet and security review.

The financial services company, which employs 174 people in 12 sites across Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Shropshire and Cheshire is implementing two separate connections from two locations, which are load balanced.

Peter Excell IT development team leader at the company said its business relies heavily on the internet and wanted to ensure its disaster recovery strategy was more than just in place for a disaster.

“Apart from security we are looking at the resilience of our internet connections. We are keen that our back up systems are not just waiting for disaster recovery but are something that we can use during normal business,” said Excell.

As part of the review the company has also implemented an e-mail managed service from Mimecast, which is delivered by reseller Network Defence.
