Alabama-based cloud backup vendor looking for Canadian resellers

Birmingham, Alabama-based Datahouse Cloud Backup is looking for resellers and partners interested in offering their Asigra powered system to their users.

The company is looking to work with software resellers and technical support companies. Datahouse currently delivers hybrid cloud backup and recovery products and they have a channel program that offers resellers a way to generate monthly recurring revenue.

According to Thomas Cardwell of Datahouse, companies are three times more likely to experience computer data breaches from an employee, than they are from a hacker. New research from Forrester, only 25 per cent of data breach cases are the work of external attackers. Seeing that end-users back up their corporate data offsite using Datahouse cloud backup copy, to access in the event of a disaster, continues to be the preference of software developers and systems integrators. While it’s true that hacker collectives like “Anonymous” dominate the media with their high-profile data breaches, it turns out that a breach is three times more likely to be an inside job perpetrated by a company’s own employee. This helps to explain why software developers and systems integrators are beginning to realize the value in making sure that their partners and end-users are protecting their data properly. Properly meaning, by having not only a protected local copy of system data, but more importantly an offsite Datahouse cloud backup copy to access in the event of a disaster.

This still leaves a whopping 75 per cent coming from inside the company. Of these, 12 per cent were breached with ill intent according to Forrester. About 63 per cent of the issues were caused by something more mundane, like losing or misplacing corporate assets the report found.

Most small to medium sized businesses do not think about the importance of their data until they have a disaster or hardware failure. It is often a piece of the puzzle that is never taken seriously.

Not only is it important for data to be properly protected, meeting government regulatory requirements for their industry is just as important. Acts Regulatory requirements like such as: Sarbanes Oxley (SOX), U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) are just a few that require data protection.

Most efficient business owners are beginning to demand managed online backup solutions and partners that offer the very latest in technology and benefits. According to the experts over at Datahouse Cloud Backup, the majority of their clients are seeking benefits like:

Agent-less Interaction resulting in safer, easier to maintain and painless backups.

Free software and no charge for maintenance fees.

Data de-duplication and Compression prior to being sent offsite (minimizes the data stored and transmitted).

Only being charged for the data that they store.

A data center that is SAS70 Type II Certified with all data being encrypted in transit and at rest.Restores that are available at any time with no limits and no charges.

A partner who will personally work with you to setup and verify that your backups work and you are protecting the data that is important to your business. This includes someone that picks up the phone when you need help restoring lost or corrupted data.

Datahouse has multi-platform services and offers customized backup systems any combination of offsite, on-premise and/ or replicated system.
