iland Scoops DRaaS Award at the CIR Annual Business Continuity Awards 2019

Award spotlights iland’s 12 years of helping customers protect critical data in the cloud  

London – 12th June, 2019 – iland, an industry-leading provider of secure cloud services, today announced it has been recognised as the winner of the DRaaS Award at the CIR Annual Business Continuity Awards 2019.

The Business Continuity Awards are the definitive mark of excellence in the sector, celebrating the past year’s greatest successes in business continuity, security and resilience. This year’s event included 27 award categories for entrants to showcase their best people, products, services and projects.

The award categories reflect the significant factors surrounding business continuity, focusing on most effective recovery, transformation, resilience, business continuity management cloud and disaster recovery as a service. The best in the industry were selected by a panel of expert judges last Thursday at a ceremony at London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square.

“Natural disasters and data breaches have been hitting the headlines this year,” said Johnny Carpenter, director of iland EMEA sales.  “While it might not all happen on a large scale, any sort of outage for hardware or software fault, malicious ransomware or careless users and accidents, can put businesses at risk.  Likewise, where disaster recovery used to be a costly affair, it is now affordable with solutions like iland’s Secure Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service. Our cloud-based platform provides customers with secure efficient failover, an enterprise class infrastructure, hosted in first class data centre locations around the world.”

Designed with customers’ needs in mind, iland’s leading recovery platform and managed services simplify continuous application availability from deployment to testing to ongoing management.  iland provides the highest availability, scalability, flexibility, security and compliance combined with simplified pricing and expert onboarding, which solves many of the traditional challenges associated with recovery strategies. The iland solution also provides 100 percent availability, SLA and AES256 end-to-end data encryption.  Other aspects of iland’s Secure DRaaS include:

  • A cloud assessment application to ‘right fit’ resources
  • Single integrated platform for management, testing/live recovery automation, security and compliance
  • Iland’s advanced API and SDK extensibility
  • Self-service or full managed delivery models

Carpenter added: “iland would like to thank the CIR Business Continuity Awards for this recognition and likewise our partners and customers for their ongoing support. As DRaaS adoption becomes mainstream, iland is proud to continue to support businesses as they discover the value and importance of having highly secure and cost-effective cloud-based disaster recovery services.”
