Simpson and Marwick
“Frontier Technology have not only been a tremendous help in ensuring our data is safe, but also by enabling us to satisfy new and existing clients, with onerous security requirements, that they can trust us and that our service to them can continue no matter what happens” - Andrew Constable, Partner, Simpson & Marwick
Simpson & Marwick is one of the leading law firms in Scotland. They cater to the litigation and dispute resolution needs of commercial bodies, public sector organisations and private individuals.
Simpson & Marwick was using tapes to fulfill their business continuity requirements. With their growth plans in mind, existing RTOs and RPOs needed to be improved. They also wanted their data replicated to a second location in real time whilst minimising time and manpower resources when testing their DR plan.
Highly regulated, the firm must ensure that the new DR plan be compliant with set industry standards.
After the deployment of Frontier Technology’s DR as a Service solution, Frontier Continuity Service, Simpsont & Marwick’s lowered their RPO to less than 3 minutes and their RTO to less than 30 minutes. With real-time continuous replication and on-going systems monitoring and data replication, their users are assured of continuous access to IT systems and applications even during planned maintenance. This enables them to guarantee their clients that whatever happens, they can trust them and that they will always be ‘business as usual.’
Frontier Technology’s engineers conducts yearly DR invocation tests with very little staff involvement for app testing, thereby reducing administrative overheads. Simpson & Marwick now have a reliable DR strategy, DR tests and are able to maintain consistency in compliance to their RTOs & RPOs.
