OKLAHOMA CITY, June 6, 2007 - CoreVault™ announced today that it has received an exclusive endorsement from the Oklahoma Dental Association (ODA), which represents over 1,500 Dentists throughout the state. “This endorsement allows us an opportunity to tailor our service offering to the dental community right here in Oklahoma”, says Jeff Cato, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for CoreVault.
“The ODA thoroughly researches and sometimes endorses products and services to meet our members’ professional and personal needs. CoreVault data backup and recovery services will help us protect our dental practice data. Never again will ODA members have to worry about losing data and being unable to restore that data due to virus, hard drive crash, accidental data deletion, theft, or natural disaster”, says Dr. Krista M. Jones, ODA President. “We feel confident that CoreVault will provide a much-needed service for the members of our Association and will provide that service well. We’re very excited about this partnership.”
Market research indicates that companies’ data storage needs are increasing on average at a rate of 30 to 40% annually. Despite this phenomenal data growth rate, many companies still back up their data on tape or disk. The Gartner Group, a nationally-recognized research firm, says, "34 percent of companies fail to test their backups, and of those that do, 77 percent have found tape backup failures." In recent years, escalation of natural disasters worldwide, increases in U.S. regulatory mandates like HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley, and the high cost of human resources continue to constrain small to mid-sized employers. Data management has become critical to the success of dental practices.
“CoreVault™ assures ODA members that their important data will be backed up and HIPAA compliant in a secure, reliable and cost-effective manner. It is a challenge for many dentists to get a daily backup done and preserved offsite, yet the financial impact of losing even a few days worth of work in the event of system crash would be significant. CoreVault’s online services allow individual dentists to back up their server, desktop and laptop data, which is a major area of vulnerability for many practicing dentists today. Many of ODA’s members have no dedicated IT staff and face increasing challenges with regular data backup and regulatory compliance. Larger dental practices that have already moved from a paper to electronic work flow system can benefit from our tiered service platforms designed to manage data and costs effectively on a long term basis. Our bottom line - CoreVault’s offerings of services and affordable secure solutions can be designed and implemented to suit your office’s unique and specific needs.” said Cato.
CoreVault™ provides data backup and recovery services that are automated and centrally managed to help businesses protect their data. Our solution helps companies with offsite protection, fast restores, regulatory compliance, increased security and world class customer service. In addition, CoreVault’s two private data centers are geographically separated and possess redundant systems. For additional information, go to www.corevault.net.
Founded in 1907, the Oklahoma Dental Association has a proud membership of over 1,500 dentist members and is headquartered in Oklahoma City. The Association was established to help foster an awareness of the obligations and responsibilities of the dental profession to society, to help advance the art and science of dentistry, and to promote public health and health services in the State of Oklahoma.
