National Express secures company data

National Express secures company data

National Express, the UK's number one coach network, has turned to Thinking SAFE™ to help secure its company data online.

National Express Ltd is part of leading international transport provider, National Express Group. Its coaches operate to 1,000 destinations and carry over 17 million customers a year.

The Thinking SAFE™ solution is now used across two National Express data centres, as David Jones, Head of IT at National Express explains: “The Thinking SAFE solution has enabled us to backup all data quickly, effectively and securely with minimal downtime on restore. This helps to contain costs, by reducing the time we spend on administration, and it allows us to invoke Disaster Recovery plans much more easily.”

Previously, the company’s data was first backed up to disks in servers, then streamed to tape. This required multiple tape devices and the ongoing headache of tape rotation management. When reviewing its options, National Express considered traditional tape library systems but decided that a disk based solution was needed.

As Mesabi Group - the industry analyst firm that focuses on networked storage and storage management – recently stated, the complex manual process of back ups for data protection is to blame for a continuing thorn in the side of many central IT organisations.

David Jones continues: “Thinking SAFE™ gave us everything we needed if implemented as a multi-site set-up. Above all, they focussed on the core problem with a ready made solution.”

Ed Jones, Managing Director of Thinking SAFE™ comments: “With the value of business data being so great, companies like National Express are looking for a software solution which ensures higher levels of systems availability.
We bring together fast local disaster recovery, snapshot copy, and the replication and synchronisation of backup data onto a single platform. Security is not the only driver; we also help address the compliance, data availability and under-resourcing headaches facing IT Directors today.”

The Thinking SAFE™ solution delivers backup, recovery and archive solutions to solve today's challenges such as securing mobile data, backing up the ever increasing quantities of data, reduced backup windows, rising tape costs, fast recovery of critical data, and long term archiving.

The software brings together backup and recovery, snapshot copy, and the replication and synchronisation of backup data into a single platform. The policy-based processes are set so businesses can meet their IT service delivery requirements at a lower cost than ever before and the data is encrypted to ensure maximum security.

Thinking SAFE™ works with a host of blue chip customers, including GB Airways, Arlington Plc, Saffery Champness and Cripps Harries Hall LLP.
