Newport based IT consultant launches state-of-the-art data security package


The data security software, known as C-Assure, which has been two years in development, will safeguard computers against all elements of data loss, often caused by cybercrime, and provide ongoing data protection through off site cloud back up.

C-Assure only backs up new data that has been added to a business’s server during the course of a day – a move away from traditional technology, which has normally only allowed for a full system back up scheduled at a set time.

In June alone, Certus TG performed over 100,000 back ups on behalf of its clients, which include the Welsh Rugby Union, the Royal Mint and the Millennium Stadium.

The new technology will enable businesses to save money as they will be able to reduce the amount of data being backed up at any given time and ensure that, in the event of a disaster, information can be easily restored and operations can start up again within minutes.

Nigel Griffiths, chief operating officer of Certus TG, said, ‘In today’s world, the way in which people can obtain and exploit an individual or business’s sensitive information is becoming increasingly innovative, meaning it can be challenge for businesses to keep up with every potential risk to their data.’                

He added, ‘C-Assure delivers ongoing data protection and faster, safer restoration methods that combine back up, replication and recovery into one system, ensuring that in the event of an emergency, operations can continue running with as little disruption as possible.’

Certus TG has partnered with Cardiff based Pinnacle Complete Office Solutions, which is onboard as the first official reseller of the software in the UK. The office solutions supplier, which has a wide ranging client base covering and specialising in the finance and banking, aviation, public sector and legal industry sectors, will offer data back up and file recovery services to new and existing customers as part of the company’s plans to expand into the IT solutions market.

Clive Hamilton, managing director of Pinnacle Complete Office Solutions, said ‘Data security is an important consideration for any business, especially when working with sensitive commercial information on a daily basis. Regardless of sector, all of our clients require backup solutions for their IT systems, and now, thanks to C-Assure, we can offer exactly that.

‘Knowing how important IT continuity is, we have also implemented C-Assure into our own IT infrastructure which validates our belief in its credentials.’
