Xand and SecureAgent – Partner to Provide Mission Critical Data Center Solutions

September 21, 2009 by  

Web Hosting Tools HAWTHORNE, NY and TULSA, OK – In today’s rapidly changing business environment, moving critical data off-site and ensuring its security is a continual challenge. In an effort to address that challenge SecureAgent Software and Xand have announced a joint business service offering, which will provide a turn-key data backup and disaster recovery solution for mid range, mainframe and open system users while offering strategic advances in the approach to data management. The companies jointly will make available the Secure Data Solution® enhanced backup and recovery program. The combination of Xand’s managed services and SecureAgent’s patented technology will create an industry-changing service offering fully compatible with collocation, disaster recovery, and business continuity needs.

The elimination or reduction of tape mounting time, physical tape stock, tape drives, maintenance, off-site tape storage, and logistics reduce user costs. The patented SecureAgent disk-to-disk technology delivers increases service levels, reliability, and productivity. Proprietary software features insure secure data compression and encryption at the highest legal levels throughout the process. The Secure Data Solution also decreased floor space and reduces power/cooling costs.

SecureAgent has earned not only an impeccable reputation as a pioneering data services solution provider, but also has been awarded more than a dozen US and European patents. SecureAgent data management applications are in use throughout the United States and Europe. They are a preferred solution for some of the world’s largest banks, communication companies and tier-one outsourcers.

“The Secure Data Solution offers an elegant solution to the messiness of tape backups and disparate systems. By adding the replication piece to the Xand Data Center the client is able to easily implement a DR strategy for their business. Keeping in mind the compression ratio and encryption patent, we can offer this as an alternative to SRDF replication. Certainly there are folks out there struggling with the challenges of tape backup that will welcome this unique solution in the market”, says Seth Oestreicher, Chief Operating Officer at Xand.

“We designed the Secure Data Solution to meet the increasingly flexible and evolving needs of modern data centers. The joint partnership with Xand enables secure tape emulation and the movement of those tape images offsite via a network,” said R. Brent Johnson, president of SecureAgent Software.

Joining forces between the data management piece and the data center allows for a well thought out solution for many businesses. Every client faces the need to backup their data, and if by utilizing SDS and replicating to Xand’s Westchester or NYC facility we can provide disaster recovery, this eliminates concerns about the safety of the clients data. Xand can offer two models depending on where the client wants to maintain their primary operations. In each case, the pair of SDS devices will replicate the client’s data in a compressed encrypted form and will reside in the resilient and secure Xand Data Center facility.
