High street retailer protects critical business data with online backup and recovery

SecurStore, the Cloud Data Backup and Recovery specialist, has today announced a major new contract with La Senza, one of the UK’s largest high street retailers of luxurious, affordable women’s underwear, nightwear and swimwear. La Senza has chosen SecurStore to back up its business critical data and applications. SecurStore’s cloud backup and recovery capability is certified by the BSI against the stringent ISO 27001 standard and is the ideal tool to strengthen La Senza’s information security and integrity.

SecurStore provides highly efficient and cost effective Cloud Data Backup and Recovery with the ability to recover any part or all of a customer’s data at any time. The backup and recovery schedule is decided by La Senza enabling the SecurStore solution to effectively manage itself thanks to an automated and encrypted data transfer. La Senza will be specifically using SecurStore to protect its business critical applications and data including Microsoft Exchange and SQL databases.

“Using SecurStore is all about efficiency and optimisation. For example SecurStore’s 2 Tier storage model ensures that our vital data is stored in the primary tier for instant recovery, while our less critical data is archived to the secondary and cheaper tier for recovery within a 24 hour time period,” explains Paul Erskine Infrastructure Manager. “As a result our data backup and recovery is highly optimised along with the cost of the service. Having our data backed up in this way with such long term cost efficiency, coupled with SecurStore’s impressive and dedicated Technical Support makes this service an ideal package for La Senza.”

“Working with La Senza is a significant proof point for our business and for the Cloud Data Backup and Recovery market as a whole,” explains Alexander Eiriksson COO SecurStore. "Companies large and small are increasingly recognising the vital benefits that Cloud Backup and Recovery services provide for their business. By eliminating the vulnerabilities of tape based backup and human error, our agentless, scalable and highly automated Asigra Powered Backup and Recovery service delivers increased efficiencies and peace of mind coupled with focused cost optimisation for our customers.”
