Carswell Protects 150 Year-Old Business with VAULT400 BaaS

Carswell, a Thomson Reuters business founded in 1864, is Canada’s leading source of intelligent information solutions for legal, tax, finance and human resource professionals. Headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, Carswell provides integrated information in a range of formats, including books, loose-leaf services, journals, newsletters, CD-ROMs and online.

Due to the nature of their business, Fred Neeser, Technical Lead, and Margaret Banks, Manager Business Information Systems, thoroughly investigated their options when choosing an online data backup provider for their IBM i system. They needed to ensure their data was safely backed up in the cloud with the BaaS package they selected; and that the provider’s data centers were secure. Other key requirements include a yearly Auditors Letter for SSAE 16 SOC II Type II and full compliance with HIPAA/ HITECH regulations.

UCG met or exceeded all of Carswell’s key requirements to protect their IBM i 9406-810 system with their VAULT400 BaaS solution. VAULT400 provides daily automated backups to the cloud, provides secure transmissions and an easy-to-use interface to retrieve files, folders, or libraries for quick restores.
