School database storage to be handled by London-based companyLondon, 4th March: BackupVault, one of the premier providers of data backup solutions in the UK, has recently released a valuable new service which will provide backup to the Schools Information Management System (SIMS) databases of schools across the country. The Capita SIMS system is used by over 90% of schools in the UK, and BackupVault will be assisting in the process of backing up this hugely valuable and sensitive raft of information.Schools are required by law to store backups of data off-site and in a secure manner. BackupVault’s encrypted service utilises ISO27001 and 9001 certified datacenters, in order to help schools comply with the latest legislation and guidelines.BackupVault will be utilising its proprietary Backup for Schools system in this process. The Backup for Schools system, powered by Attix5 software, is the only backup system approved by Capita, and therefore makes it the ideal choice for this prestigious undertaking. The Attix5 software enables files to be restored in as little as four mouse clicks, and files are also compressed allowing lightning fast restorations of multiple file versions from storage servers.Considering the sensitivity of the data involved, BackupVault will be exercising extreme caution and care with protecting this important information. All databases and files involved in this process will be deeply encrypted before being sent off-site to two secure UK-based datacenters. The cloud backup service provided by BackupVault is fully automated, and enables school, colleges and universities to safely protect their most important assets – their data.Under the auspices of this system, backups will be taken several times every day, and secured using BackupVault’s powerful 256bit AES encryption method. All encrypted files from the SIMS systems will be immediately replicated to a secondary UK datacenter for redundancy and to ensure maximum security.Speaking about the SIMS schools project, Rob Stevenson of BackupVault had the following to say: “We are delighted at BackupVault to have secured this critical and valuable project, and are really enthusiastic about playing a small part in the futures of many young people across the country. As one of the few data specialists in Britain that utilises only UK-based datacenters – as well as 24/7 support staff and offices – we are uniquely placed to offer a secure and state-of-the-art service to British schools. We look forward to a long, equitable and profitable partnership.”###BackupVault is the trading name of Blueraq Networks Ltd – a profitable IT company, based at 70 St Mary Axe, London, EC3A 8BD.Founded in 2004, BackupVault is a privately owned backup solutions provider.
