8th April 2013 – London, UK – Vision Teknology UK (VTUK), the market leading estate agent software provider today announced its new partnership with Securstore. VTUK’s award winning software platforms (Aquarius, Pisces, Taurus, Gemini and Scorpio) will now offer customers the ability to protect their business data via Securstore’s cloud based systems.

VTUK’s software was the first property software business to receive CPD accreditation for its training services and having been established for over 20 years with many long-term customers, VTUK needed to align itself with a provider that has an equally recognised reputation for following all data protection and compliance laws.

Adam Rackham, CIO at VTUK, said, “We made sure we undertook thorough due-diligence when assessing the Cloud Backup market. It really is a minefield when deciding which organisation to trust for this service. Pricing is always an issue, but the most important thing is ensuring you are getting the best overall value in terms of security, support and recovery. Securstore met all our requirements and we look forward to the start of our partnership and its strengthening over the coming years.”

Securstore’s solution will be deployed across VTUK’s entire UK customer base. Using military grade encryption at flight and at rest, with the customer themselves creating their own encryption key, ensures no third party access can occur to the data. 24/7 support is available and the solution itself supports all major platforms and applications as well as laptops, Android/Apple devices, and virtual environments. Virtual Disaster Recovery is also available should customers need it.

Many of VTUK’s customers have branch offices which are geographically spread out across different regions. Securstore is experienced in the management of multi-site setups, so any VTUK customers that have multiple offices will receive the same strong level of protection as those without. All users benefit from Securstore’s strong focus on security, including 256 AES encryption and regular audits by the British Standards Institute (BSI) for ISO 27001 accreditation.

Alexander Eiriksson, COO at Securstore, said, “Today businesses have a variety of operating systems and applications in place; this is just the nature of the technological world we live in. The problem this creates is finding a consolidated solution that can backup, protect and allow customers to recover data quickly should they need to. We are delighted to bring VTUK on board as a partner and look forward to working closely with them for the foreseeable future.”
