NCC Group launches Replicate & Recover

Helping customers plan for software failure, data loss and downtime.

Global cyber security and risk mitigation expert NCC Group has launched its new cloud service, Replicate & Recover, to give customers maximum resilience against disruption of third-party cloud-based software and applications.

With Replicate & Recover, organisations can protect their business-critical assets against third-party vendor disruption and ensure that they can get back up and running quickly in the event of a supplier failure, avoiding potentially astronomical downtime costs.

Built upon NCC Group’s established software escrow technology, Replicate & Recover brings

both escrow and data back-up (Back up as a Service (BaaS) together into a single solution. This guarantees that both vendors and customers have access to an independently hosted dynamic back-up of a licensed cloud-hosted or SaaS environment, as well as source code and data, in the event of unplanned downtime.

With flexible automated backups in as little as every hour and data stored in our secure cloud environment, businesses can benefit from full recoverability of both their critical application and most recent data minimising disruption to business operations.

The launch supports analysis from Gartner which shows that 71% of organisations work with more vendors across their third-party network than they did three years ago. Driven by business concerns around continuity and compliance with evolving supply chain legislation, Replicate & Recover supports organisations in building operational resilience.

Simon Fieldhouse, global managing director, Software Resilience at NCC Group, said: “Replicate & Recover is a unique service that takes the capabilities of our Escrow as a Service (EaaS) offering further by ensuring a higher level of data backup and recovery for business-critical third-party cloud applications.

“In today’s environment, operational resilience is closely tied to how much an organisation can minimise vulnerabilities in their cloud solutions. Businesses that are unprepared for data loss could be faced with huge downtime, which brings significant financial implications. We’re proud to be building solutions that help our customers face the challenge of third-party vendor reliance head-on and plan for any disruption before it impacts their business.

Ollie Whitehouse, global CTO at NCC Group, said: “Whether organisations are seeking compliance with supply chain-related legislation, or want to protect themselves from the impact of downtime, building operational resilience is a key priority for the businesses we work with.

“The last ten years have demonstrated just how important cloud solutions areto the successful day-to-day running of almost any business. We’re committed to helping our customers manage third-party risk and ensure they can adopt new technologies and innovate with confidence.”
