Compliance Plus

Backup Direct's Compliance Plus is the perfect solution for organisations required to meet data protection obligations within their industry.

Our range of data backup and business continuity solutions are ideal for organisations in the financial, educational, professional services, health and public sector. Compliance Plus helps you stay compliant, save money and achieve peace-of-mind.

The Regulation Pressure

As an organisation that handles sensitive data on a daily basis, you might be starting to feel the strain. Data is growing at exponential rates, it's more business critical and there is less time available to manage it. It's like being on a treadmill that is steadily getting faster and faster; it's a struggle just to keep up.

On top of this data management pressure is the need to meet industry requirements. After a spate of high-profile data loss incidents across the UK and Europe, regulatory bodies have started to clamp down on organisations deemed irresponsible when handling sensitive data. The result is a whole new level of scrutiny and pressure on internal IT departments.

Compliance Plus exists to take away that pressure.

Keeping You Compliant

Knowing that your data needs backing up regularly and archiving securely for future reference, Backup Direct has developed a solutions range ideal for all organisations facing the hassle of industry compliance.

Our online backup and business continuity services ensure you never need to worry about factors such as data growth, data loss or data exposure ever again. With an IT services range compliant with all major data security guidelines, Backup Direct can help you meet the following certifications:

  • Data Protection Act
  • ISO20000 / ISO27001
  • FSA Compliancy
  • PCI Compliancy
  • Sarbanes Oxley

With an automatic and offsite data backup and disaster recovery solution in place, you can eliminate the inherent risks involved with backing up to tape and removable devices.
