TORONTO – April 7, 2009 – Asigra Inc. and CoreVault™ today announced their joint intent to bring Business-Class Cloud backup and recovery to the legal community, helping large and small law firms in North America securely protect sensitive company and client data. Driven by Asigra’s leading Cloud Backup Platform, CoreVault delivers fully managed, zero-touch backup and recovery using advanced technology that replaces unreliable traditional backup technologies, such as tape and optical disc. CoreVault secures all information using secure AES 256 encrypted continuous backups for unmatched data security and recovery aligned with Cloud Computing.
CoreVault is an industry leader in providing data protection services to law firms across the country. The company has exclusively partnered with more than eleven Bar Associations from states including Oklahoma, California, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and South Carolina representing over 325,000 members. “Information and education is key! The legal community realizes you can’t just trust anyone with client data. CoreVault has worked hard to earn that trust, with more Bar Associations endorsing the company than any other competitive vendor in the industry,” said Jeff Cato, Vice President of Marketing for CoreVault.
“Prior to CoreVault, The Crosthwait Law Firm used tape-based backup to protect its digital assets. However, tape backup was labor intensive and inconsistent in terms of reliability, making it a constant source of frustration for the firm,” said Joe Crosthwait of The Crosthwait Law Firm. “After careful due diligence and recommendations of IT professionals, we switched to CoreVault to automate the entire process of backup and recovery. CoreVault’s reputation among peers and operational excellence has proven that decision correct.”
"A key driver in our selection of CoreVault was the safety in knowing that our critical information was protected offsite in the event of a natural disaster," said Rick Loomis, Director of Information Systems for the Oklahoma Bar Association. "With Oklahoma ranked as the number two state in the country in terms of tornado frequency, a disaster recovery plan that included offsite data protection was a necessary insurance policy in the event of a catastrophic event."
Law firms have a duty to protect client information from unauthorized disclosure and loss. Traditional data protection methods, including backing up to removable media or external disk storage, are fraught with potential risks. Theft, fire or the common computer error often result in data loss and traditional backup technologies provide poor remedies to these challenges. Other leading traditional backup software solutions do not offer the ability to perform comprehensive test restores, ensure the integrity of backup data with self-healing functionality or store offsite copies of backup data in encrypted format to prevent outsider viewing. The passage and enforcement of Sarbanes-Oxley, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Acts further necessitate that information is protected and recoverable.
CoreVault is a backup and recovery service powered-by-Asigra that the legal community can trust to protect its confidential information. With CoreVault, legal professionals can select to securely store copies of backup data both onsite and offsite in their two privately owned SAS 70 Type II Certified facilities for disaster recovery. CoreVault protects the most sensitive of information from unauthorized access using AES 256 encryption for world-class protection. CoreVault manages the entire process ~ from installation to daily management ~ and allows for both scheduled and on-demand test recoveries to ensure backup integrity.
Asigra Hybrid Cloud Backup and Recovery software is the platform behind CoreVault, proven in over 100,000 installations over the past two decades. The software was designed from inception to provide efficient and compliant backup and recovery, satisfying legal industry demands. Asigra software eliminates the performance, security and cost of traditional backup and alternative onsite and offsite backup solutions to meet business continuity and compliance requirements while helping the legal community reduce costs associated with backup and recovery. Advantages especially relevant for legal environments include both local and remote data protection, end-to-end encryption of all data and long term backup data retention.
“Our simple yet powerful backup solution, SAS 70 certified data centers and world class customer service allows law firms to focus on their clients instead of backup tapes or other unreliable backup solutions. This is the real value that CoreVault provides. Possible claims of malpractice and resulting negative impact on a firm’s reputation from lost client data can significantly affect the ability to retain and gain new clients,” continued Cato. “Law firm clients don't want excuses for poor management of their information. They simply want quality assurance that data protection and accessibility is what they will receive.”
“Data protection and information security are top concerns for law firms as they are entrusted with sensitive information whose breach or loss can cost millions,” said Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President for Asigra. “From a retention, security, recovery and management perspective, there is no other backup software platform more closely aligned with the needs of the legal community than Asigra. Our partnership with CoreVault ensures that customers receive quality managed backup services, built to meet today’s more restrictive IT budgets.”
