Evault on-line back up for Texas County tax records

I365 : 03 December, 2009  (Application Story)
Denton County in Texas has moved to an online back up and recovery regime using EVault software-as-a-service from i365
i365, a Seagate company has announced that Denton County's Tax Assessor/Collector office has moved to i365's EVault SaaS for fast, efficient protection of the county's critical tax records and data. The county is moving to i365 from its prior tape-based backup processes.

Part of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, Denton County is one of the fastest-growing counties in the United States. With a population of 636,557, Denton County's Tax Assessor/Collector department required a reliable, secure data backup solution to protect their taxing jurisdictions critical data, ensuring its security and privacy. Unsure of the dependability of their previous tape-based backup solution, Denton County chose EVault SaaS for its simple deployment and backup of crucial county records offsite in the i365 Cloud, and its unique ability to provide fast, foolproof recovery services in the event of a disaster.

"As a government entity, it is our duty to protect the public's tax records. By law we are required to keep records for 20 years, and it is vital that in the case of a disaster there will be no disruptions to our IT systems, especially regarding data access," said Steve Mossman, tax assessor, Denton County. "EVault SaaS meets our needs completely - from price point to automatic offsite backup. With i365, we have complete confidence that our citizens' tax data are protected if something happens to our program, and we know that the records are safe, secure and retrievable at any point."

Prior to switching to EVault SaaS, Denton County's Tax Assessor/Collector department used tape-based backup, a manual and ultimately unreliable process that took anywhere from 2-3 hours per night to complete. While there was never an issue, there was constant concern with the reliability of the backup and the backup procedures. With EVault, Denton County is now able to automate the complete data backup and recovery process, which saves the county time and money and ensures backup validity and reliability. The i365 solution also safeguards Denton County's data by storing it in two separate secure, SAS 70 Type II, i365 state-of-the-art data centres in North America.

"It is crucial that government departments take the necessary steps to protect their data, as in our world today everyone must be prepared for worst-case scenarios," said Valerie Fawzi, senior director of marketing with i365. "By entrusting their stored information to i365's EVault SaaS, Denton County can rest assured their sensitive data is safely protected at all times."

i365 EVault backup and recovery solutions protect business and government data, making it secure, compliant and easily accessible. Backup data is transferred off-site immediately and automatically — without human intervention. Data is encrypted at all times for security and privacy. Only new and changed data at the block level is backed up and automatically deduplicated, compressed, encrypted and transmitted to highly secure SAS 70 Type II data centres across North America.
