London, UK — Renaissance Easy Claim, one of the UK’s leading claims management companies, today announced its use of Securstore Cloud Backup & Recovery for the long term offsite protection of its data. For ten years, the company has forged its reputation on ensuring customers feel at ease throughout the entire claims process. Being regulated by the Ministry of Justice means data confidentiality is essential for Renaissance Easy Claim. With Securstore, it can ensure it is meeting all governmental laws on data protection.

Alongside market leading security, Renaissance Easy Claim needed a flexible, cost effective solution. As Securstore’s technology is agentless, (meaning the software is only installed on one machine and other workstations, servers, desktops and laptops connected to it on the same network are also protected), management is simple, time-efficient and with a high level of user-friendliness.

Securstore’s unique billing structure is different from the standard pay per licence, user or server models of other providers. Customers only pay for the cost of data once it has been compressed, de-duplicated and when delta blocking has been applied.

Keeping older data offsite was equally important for Renaissance Easy Claim, as was the ability to retrieve files instantly if a disaster occurs. Securstore addresses this requirement with a multi-tier storage platform where retention rules can be set to move or copy (historical snapshots) data to a second tier for a period of time defined by the user and with no limits.

For example, after seven years of keeping financial records, the company can delete backup sets, while a destruction certificate is automatically sent for auditing purposes. This unique approach offers businesses a cost effective, long term backup strategy, while simultaneously fulfilling any regulatory protocols.

Darren Cuthbert, Project & Facilities Manager at Renaissance Easy Claim said, “We have been a Securstore customer for many years and its solution is extremely secure, automated and meets our needs perfectly. By running in the background, it allows our business to focus resources on other projects. If any issues arise, Securstore’s 24/7 technical support team is there to hand.”

The manner in which Securstore approaches compliance and security was another reason for Renaissance Easy Claim’s choice. Data is encrypted before it leaves the customer firewall, is stored offsite with 256 AES encryption and as a provider, Securstore is regularly audited by the British Standards Institute (BSI) and certified for the ISO 27001 Information Security standard. This gives the company complete peace of mind that it is meeting international regulations.

Saaher Muzafer, Chief Sales Officer of Securstore, said, “We are pleased that Renaissance Easy Claim chose our solution and in essence, formed a partnership with us to trust and protect its business. Data loss is a common theme in the industry with many reports of business downtime occurring due to inadequate offsite protection. We look forward to guaranteeing this never happens to Renaissance Easy Claim.”
