Data Insurance Press Release
Data Insurance guarantees a new level of business continuity for New Zealand businesses
Eagle Technology appointed reseller of Data Insurance services; underwritten by QBE, data centres provided by Unisys and technical standards and processes approved by Munich Re
WELLINGTON – 20 June - Eagle Technology, one of New Zealand’s most established and successful systems integrators, is pleased to announce that they have been appointed a reseller of Data Insurance services in New Zealand. Data Insurance is the international developer of their exclusive ‘data insurance’ solution that combines the redundancy of data storage via data centres with the financial protection of traditional insurance.
Eagle Technology is uniquely qualified to be a Data Insurance reseller in New Zealand. “We have a long history in both data centres as well as business continuity,” says Duane Eagle, Sales Manager for the Data Insurance portfolio. “Until now, there has been no comprehensive solution for organisations wishing to fully protect their data assets. Data Insurance has pulled together the financial resources of QBE, Australasia’s largest general insurance and reinsurance group (QBE carries an A+ rating from Standard & Poor’s) the Tier 3 datacentre infrastructure of Unisys, the automated backup and restore software from Attix5 and the international ‘best practices’ standards from Data Insurance International. And all of this has been vetted by Munich Re’s global security team, the world’s largest reinsurer.”
“This combination of financially-strong organisations and well-proven methodologies means that companies that subscribe to our Data Insurance policies will be 100% covered in the case of a disaster, natural or otherwise,” says Eagle.
The process is quite straight forward. “Companies, after a thorough data audit, select their mission-critical data to be covered and nominate a value for that data,” explains Eagle. “We then install the software, which provides encrypted online backup-and storage capabilities, on the devices which can range from iPads through to large enterprise infrastructure. This software then captures the data and transmits it to the mirrored datacentres in both Auckland and Wellington, adding another layer of redundancy.”
In the case of a total system breakdown and data destruction at the client site, the stored data can be rapidly replicated as soon as the infrastructure has been replaced.
“Data Insurance is a product that is absolutely imperative in today’s business climate,” concludes Eagle. “Floods, earthquakes and fires are, unfortunately, a fact of life, and this service will ensure that if an organisation is hit by the unexpected, they will be able to recover and continue their business with the least possible loss.”
