Protect Critical Financial Data with Proactive Disaster Recovery Planning

Protecting your clients' financial data is the most important aspect of your information technology security stack, and that includes ensuring that you can access your critical information in the event of a disaster. Even the most proactive disaster recovery planning efforts can fall short if they're not reviewed regularly to maintain compliance and protect against new and upcoming threats. A flat-file backup provides the first level of support that you need for your disaster recovery efforts, but will it be enough in the event of an extensive system failure?

Protecting Data in Transit

Your data is moving at a high rate of speed in a variety of different directions -- are they all fully protected? The data recovery process includes the swift move of mass quantities of information, often from an off-site location. The process of transfer can be fraught with danger for your sensitive data unless your solutions provider has fully thought through the implications involved in protecting data while it is in transit. CoreBDR from Coretelligent has the highest levels of compliance for MA 201, CMR 17 and FINRA to provide exceptional protection at each stage of your backup and recovery process.

Preserving Business Continuity

In the fast-paced finance industry, it is critical that you are able to provide your customers and your staff with the most up-to-date information at all times. Whether you are being faced with major equipment malfunctions or a cybersecurity incident, you need to know that your institution's sensitive financial and personal data -- and reputation -- stay intact. It is not unheard of for ransomware or other malware to reduce the ability of a financial services business to operate for several days, a chilling blow to your clients and a productivity hit on your staff. When you add in the cost of informing clients of a potential breach, the cost of remediation and restoring your network, you are likely facing significant and unexpected costs.

When you have dedicated disaster recovery procedures in place before problems happen, you are able to react much more quickly to resolve the situation and protect your organization. This requires a great deal of pre-planning, testing and active monitoring in order to ensure that your procedures are in place and can be quickly triggered in the event of a disaster. That includes everything from bringing your servers back online to restoring the last known good data for your clients.

Parallel VM and Data Restoration

One of the key differences between CoreBDR and other backup and recovery solutions is that CoreBDR's proprietary solutions protect the entire system. Our process has been modernized to allow us to restore not only the data on your virtual machines (VM), but also the data in a single step. This reduces the amount of time that your business is down, and provides an added level of security in the event a VM becomes corrupt. Advanced data compression, rapid backup and restore processes, data de-duplication and WAN acceleration all work together to enhance the performance of your backup and data restore procedures.

Service at Scale

Knowing that your business is fully protected as you grow allows you an added level of peace of mind. Whether you host the majority of your data onsite or in the cloud, highly secure Veeam encryption provides insurance against data loss. A high degree of data redundancy is achieved through geographically diverse data centers, all offering dedicated storage options, SOC 2 certification and full data encryption for data at the source, in-flight and at rest.
