LONDON, UK — Sunset+Vine, a leading global supplier of sports broadcast programming, has agreed to protect its data offsite using Securstore’s Cloud Backup solution. With over 30 years broadcasting history and as the production partner for BT Sport’s live Barclays Premier League Football, Aviva Premiership Rugby, and the host broadcaster for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, it had to ensure its data remained safe, secure, and compliant with UK data protection laws.
Sunset+Vine with four UK offices, have won over 35 broadcast awards including 5 BAFTA’s and 9 Royal Television Society awards. As a well respected worldwide establishment with key deliverables to customers, Sunset+Vine had to choose a suitable provider to form a long standing IT partnership. Securstore’s global client base and similar work ethic provided the perfect fit for both parties.
Securstore supports all major operating systems, applications and most recently, support for cloud based services such as Google Apps and Salesforce. In addition, virtual environments such as VMware and Hyper-V can be backed up, as well as laptops, tablets and smartphones. The scalability factor is important for modern companies like Sunset+Vine, as backup must keep up with the pace of IT infrastructure developments in the corporate and enterprise market.
Securstore’s solution complies with all major security standards including Sarbanes Oxley (SOX), PCI and the Data Protection Act (DPA). The company is also regularly audited by BSI Group for ISO 27001, the international standard for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). This means its processes and procedures are independently checked to ensure the risk of security and threats is negated. BSI Group is accredited by UKAS, which is the only body recognised by the UK Government, a standard that is extremely important for data protection.
