Syrex, provider of virtualised and hybrid network infrastructures and solutions, has implemented numerous Redstor offerings in the South African market, providing clients with enterprise-level cloud backup and security implementations. For Syrex, the Redstor portfolio is ideally suited to the local market with comprehensive security and capability alongside relevant and accessible management functionalities.
“We have utilised Redstor’s software in multiple locations and found deployment to be exceptionally easy with superb management tools,” says Ralph Berndt, Director, Sales at Syrex. “Once we have completed implementation, we can hand clients access and they can do their own recovery, backups and data management. It is that easy. Where there is complexity around ensuring they backup everything, we provide them with the support they need.”
It is within this support that Syrex has found they can refine and transform client security services. The company’s enterprise backup solution was crafted with Redstor Backup Pro and is one of the fastest on the market. It uses incremental backups, advanced byte and block-level patching techniques, compression and client-side deduplication. Syrex provides full data resilience in dual locations to ensure that client data is at all-times secure and recoverable – adding another layer of protection for clients and forming part of the company’s commitment to delivering superlative security solutions.
“The spate of ransomware attacks in 2017 is only the beginning of the cyberwar,” says Berndt. “We believe that it is essential to add as many layers of security as possible as the impact of a breach or a successful ransomware attack can be incredibly damaging. No matter how you defend your environment something can, and will, get in, but if your data is encrypted and stored offsite, it can be recovered. Adding the component of offsite backups or virtual snapshots that are encrypted is critical.”
The system is extremely advanced and is designed to protect the entire organisational infrastructure, regardless of whether it is virtual or physical. Syrex has appreciated its reliability and efficiency and is set to standardise Redstor for its core.
