Network integration and infrastructure management company Integr8 IT has launched a high-level data recovery solution, called D8TA Vault, as part of its managed services offering.
The solution caters for the off-site data storage and risk assurance requirements of businesses operating in both the high-end and small-to-medium bracket.
Integr8 IT managing directors Lance Fanaroff and Robert Sussman said the solution aims to the increasing demands that most businesses, large or small, have in terms of security and data protection.
“D8TA Vault is a high-level data recovery solution. Clients can synchronise and securely back up critical data to a secure online off-site facility, thereby guaranteeing that their data is completely safe when they shut down for the night. D8TA Vault is housed within the MTN Network Solutions Switching Centre, offering added protection, redundancy and security,” said Sussman.
Integr8 IT claimed the solution enables clients to access data from anywhere in the world. It is secured by 448-bit Blowfish encryption, with binary increments. Data is heavily compressed resulting in a scalable, redundant, cost-effective service.
“The solution is more than taking out an insurance policy on company data. Aside from the main advantage of peace of mind, the client does not have to invest in bandwidth-intensive synchronisation, there is no deployment cost or upfront cost, and the client also has the option to 'manage’ the service, in other words, initiate or terminate the service at any time,” adds Fanaroff.
D8TA Vault is already in use within various medical and banking institutions.
