Prominent Accountant Firm Chooses AmeriVault for Remote Online Data Backup

Waltham MA (OPENPRESS) March 26, 2008 -- AmeriVault (, a leading provider of online data backup, offsite storage, and recovery services, today announces the addition of Carlin, Charron and Rosen, LLP (CCR), an Accounting Today “Top 100 Firm,” as a customer. CCR is one of New England’s leading independent regional certified public accounting and business advisory firms with offices in Boston and Westborough, Mass., Glastonbury, Conn., and Providence, Rhode Island.

As adoption of disk for backup continues to grow, many small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) have chosen to use a managed service to give them not only backup, but offsite protection as well. Accounting firms are no exception and appreciate the sensitivity of the data they transact. With a managed service, the backup and offsite transmission is automated and only requires software and existing Internet connectivity to secure information to a world-class data center.

“As we addressed our disaster recovery plans it was evident that our tape-based solution wasn’t going to give us the reliability or level of protection we needed,” stated Victor Hansjeliana, Director of Information Technology, CCR. “We chose AmeriVault because the security, reliability and redundancies were standard and we wouldn’t have to deal with maintaining tape hardware or transporting tapes offsite.”

If an accounting firm were to suffer the loss of critical data, especially during the height of tax season, the repercussions could be significant. Backup procedures must be dependable and the recovery process needs to happen in a timely fashion. If the restore failed or couldn’t be done fast enough, a firm would lose the confidence of clients, employees, and other stake holders.

“Data protection and recovery strategies demand careful consideration particularly when you’re in the position of managing another party’s information,” stated Thomas Spencer, CFO, AmeriVault. “With data loss being near inevitable for any business, you have to ask what safety net is in place to mitigate your risk. By using AmeriVault online backup, a firm like CCR can feel confident they are being responsible to their clients while automating the security and offsite protection of their critical data.”

AmeriVault automates backup and offsite storage of data with best-of-breed software and existing Internet connectivity. Through block-level processing, deduplication, and compression techniques, data is securely moved offsite in a fraction of the time it takes traditional in-house technologies. Specializing in online backup, AmeriVault also offers ancillary data services including file archiving, email archiving, email continuity, and virtual or hosted recovery solutions.
