Deal creates link between HarrierZeuros’ storage and security divisions

Storage Expo, Stand 425, Olympia (13th October 2004) – HarrierZeuros announced today that it is strengthening its business continuity offering by signing a deal with backup and recovery software specialists, Attix5. The agreement will enable HarrierZeuros to promote Attix5’s range of data continuity products, alongside other complementary solutions including secure remote access and data policy enforcement.

“Attix5 expands our portfolio to create a natural link between our storage and security divisions,” says Sarah Carter, Sales and Marketing Director of HarrierZeuros. "It allows us to take advantage of the growth in decentralised and distributed data by offering customers the perfect solution to ensure that critical data on distributed devices of all types, including servers, PCs and laptops, is securely backed-up and readily available to be restored. In addition, it authenticates using RSA’s ACE Servers, which are already widely used by many of our clients and will therefore reduce the cost of implementing Attix5.”

Research has shown that nearly half of corporate data is created and stored on remote devices. Losing that information, even partially, could have a severe impact on an organisation’s bottom line. Attix5 resolves this issue by intelligently backing-up critical files to remote or local storage server automatically on connection. Attix5 only backs-up changed data, so it reduces the load on storage infrastructures and its competitive pricing means that both SMEs and larger organisations will be able to be in totally control of their data, at a fraction of the cost and management overhead of other similar solutions.

Ian van Reenen, CTO of Attix5 says, “HarrierZeuros’ expertise in the business continuity arena was a key factor in our decision to partner with them. Their understanding of the issues that organisations face, combined with their ability to turn problems around by making security and storage a business enabler, not just a cost of doing business, makes HarrierZeuros the perfect choice.”
