Here at the Tiger’s Lair we recently hosted Oded Shahar, CEO of DataBank, which provides end-to-end data protection solutions.
In our interesting session, Shahar told me about the company, which to date has been practically unpublicized: “DataBank was founded in 2002 and we have come a long way. Today we supply comprehensive end-to-end protection to over 1000 clients, including data security and backup, storage and data recovery services at two secured locations. As part of our aim to ensure our clients’ peace of mind we manage all kinds of backup services – starting from digital media and backup tapes to backups on our private cloud, with our own private communications and infrastructure. DataBank offers the full scope of backup required to provide companies with protection. It has everything a client may need in order to get the business ‘back up and running’ in case of disaster.”
Shahar added that as part of prioritizing quality, the company is certified as compliant with international and local standards. Also it will soon launch advanced SOC services to supply the full package of data protection from end to end.
Addressing the importance of multilayered information security, he said: “We at DataBank believe in absolute protection of information. Technological progress allows us to do wonderful things, but also entails many problems. One is the need to protect data in an age where the organization is open to the world. Today, to be sure your data is properly protected, you need to combine several layers of defense – starting from cyber defense through SIEM SOC services, which we will launch soon to enable identification and removal of internal and external threats, through disaster recovery services to ensure continuity of business, to hybrid forms of data backup – on private cloud as well as physical tapes.”
He added that “This comprehensive protection array allows our clients to feel safe. For the business, the important part is the ability to recover the information quickly and ensure continuity of business. When using backup services based on international and public clouds, restoring data in real time is a process that is lengthy and costly. At DataBank, we offer routine data recovery capability tests as an integral part of the service, guaranteeing that when the real need for recovery arrives it will be possible, rapid, and in full, up to the last point of backup. We emphasize the importance of data recovery as we know that any minute in which the company has no access to its data is a crucial moment in which it loses money – lots of it.”
