The challenge

Like any financial services company dealing with sensitive information, this leading Non-Banking Financial Company (NBFC) was very particular about their data protection and data availability for their employees and extended support workforce. The customer was already using a backup solution from one of the leading backup solution providers and had an endpoint backup setup with controlled from an on-premise server, backing up to Amazon Web Services (AWS) storage. Having their backup server on-premise was a critical and regulatory business requirement for the customer – so they could configure specific security and access configurations for an important set of business data.

Their current backup solution provider had stopped their support for on-premise backups.  This compelled the customer to look for an alternative solution provider who could offer them a flexible, yet cost-efficient solution which would allow them to backup to cloud storage with an on-premise backup server.
