London, UK & Boston, USA – Touch Bionics today announced its choice of Securstore to protect its confidential business and patient data. With offices in Europe and North America, Touch Bionics needed a provider that could securely consolidate all its backups using the same solution across its network. Its data is now being backed up across both Securstore’s UK and USA data centres.

Touch Bionics is a well-respected provider of Active and Passive Functional Prostheses. The Active range includes the i-limb ultra revolution, i-limb ultra and i-limb digits, as well as biosim-i and biosim-pro control software, plus the ground breaking virtu-limb simulation tool. In the Passive range, world leading silicon prostheses called livingskin are available.

Having this extreme niche of products with the research and development it brings, means the type of data generated is extremely confidential and cannot be accessed by any third party. Securstore addresses these concerns using enterprise-strength encryption both at flight and rest for data to be transferred offsite and stored on Securstore’s systems. The security key needed to access the data is created by Touch Bionics and accessible by no other user.

Securstore supports the company’s entire digital footprint across physical and virtual environments, from servers through to mobile devices. Virtual Disaster Recovery (VDR) is also available, therefore giving customers like Touch Bionics a single solution provider that can meet the demands of their complete infrastructure.

Grant Martin, IT Manager of Touch Bionics, said, “We are in a very small space in regards to what we do and develop, therefore it is imperative our sensitive data is securely stored from our worldwide offices. Securstore satisfied our business needs and are fully compliant with what we needed; their ISO 27001 certification not only covers their data centres, but offices as well. We look forward to working with them in the years to come.”

 

Touch Bionics now not only has a solution that is fully secure, but also access to Securstore’s technical support team 24×7. Proactive monitoring occurs and in the case of any errors, the support team informs the client alongside automated email notifications. Part of its solution consists of a local copy feature, which ensures a copy of data sent offsite is kept onsite for faster recovery and added disaster recovery.

Saaher Muzafer, Chief Sales Officer at Securstore, said, “Touch Bionics represents an organisation that shares the same core values as us; trust, integrity and most of all, providing a service that can meet the demands of the ever-changing marketplace that is constantly evolving. When it comes to research, the data generated is invaluable and must be protected at all times, therefore we are pleased to be able to join together for the foreseeable future.”
