Provider named a Niche Player in Magic Quadrant for DRaaS for third consecutive year
“There has been a great deal of change in the last year. We have seen some commoditisation in the market and this year’s MQ reflects that with many more service providers evaluated. I completely agree that DRaaS has now become a ‘mainstream offering’. Organisations now recognise that DRaaS is a mature service and the benefits extend beyond pure cost savings. The organisations we speak to appreciate the value a specialist DRaaS provider brings. Customers of DRaaS know that in the event of a disaster, they not only have the technology to allow for rapid recovery but the skills of recovery specialists to bring their IT back online, minimising data loss and downtime.
“In the last 12 months we have also seen further change in both the risk landscape and the attitude towards IT downtime. The recent WannaCry attack raised the level of awareness of ransomware beyond the IT team and into the wider business-consciousness both here in the UK and around the world. Major IT outages have also highlighted just how reliant organisations are on technology to deliver their services – whether that is an airline, a bank or a university.
“Our focus has been to continue to develop the next generation of DRaaS services. That means research and development finding new methods to protect against growing cyber threats. It also means extending our services help our customers build out their Business Continuity Plans and be truly resilient businesses. We have some further exciting announcements to make on that front in the coming months.”
