Iland chosen by Sound Community Bank for data protection

iland, a provider of secure application and data protection cloud services built on VMware technology, has announced Sound Community Bank is using iland Secure Cloud Backup with Veeam Cloud Connect to secure all its workloads, including its active directory and exchange accounts.

Sound Community Bank serves more than 15,000 households and businesses with eight retail branches and two loan production offices throughout the Seattle, Washington area. The company manages more than $715 million in assets with loan services that include consumer, residential and business products.

Technology services supervisor Sean Bornicke said the bank’s growing data and limited space precluded it from refreshing its on-premises backup system. As a Veeam customer, he needed an integrated and secure solution to advance the company’s Veeam® Backup & Replication™ environment to the cloud.  After vetting Veeam’s partners for a compatible cloud solution, Bornicke selected iland Secure Cloud Backup with Veeam Cloud Connect.

“iland Secure Cloud Backup with Veeam Cloud Connect is an agile solution that just works. It’s a set-it-and-forget-it type of service, which is exactly what a small-to-midsize IT shop needs when we’re talking about backup,” Bornicke said. “Backup is one of those things that you want to know always works. With iland and Veeam, it’s always worked.”

The bank said it can now respond to data growth by increasing capacity in seconds versus weeks, as compared to the legacy on-premises environment. More importantly, with the combination of Veeam and iland, the company is able to meet the stringent security and compliance requirements associated with the financial services industry.

Bornicke added that Sound Community Bank now plans to implement iland Secure Cloud Backup for Microsoft Office 365 with Veeam, which provides complete backup and recovery for Office 365 data including Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business.

“iland was my first choice to become our Office 365 Backup solution provider,” Bornicke said. “We know that Office 365 is a good platform, but they don’t guarantee anything. If something goes bad, a lot of people think that Microsoft is backing everything up. We’ve known all along that they don’t — they have redundancy but they don’t have backup. Securing our Office 365 data with iland really takes a lot off our mind.”
