iomart has launched a new service to help London businesses become digitally resilient in the face of threats from cybercrime and terrorism.
We have teamed up with operational resilience specialist FortressAS to offer fixed site Work Area Recovery – crisis management suites with ready-to-go IT infrastructure and connectivity – to help businesses get back online as fast as possible in the event of an emergency.
“Having a permanent office space at a location that is easy to get to, with IT infrastructure and connectivity pre-installed, is a must-have to put your crisis management team and key executives back in control quickly,” says Declan Sharpe, iomart’s UK Sales Director. “This is the modern WAR room where your emergency team can focus and work together in bright office surroundings to make better decisions and get you back online during an operationally severe event.”
Financial services, professional services and legal firms in London are facing growing challenges around business continuity and disaster recovery. The Bank of England, Financial Conduct Authority and Law Society are increasing the pressure on companies to improve their operational resilience and the Mayor of London has launched a business resiliency strategy for the capital, outlining the steps that companies should take to prepare for events such as civil disorder, power disruption, terrorism and cybercrime.
Andrew Lawton, CEO of FortressAS, says, “This is a strong partnership which provides London’s businesses with a single source of digital and physical resilience to minimise the impact of crisis events in the capital.”
iomart chose FortressAS as its Work Area Recovery partner because of its award-winning state-of-the-art recovery facilities at the Crossharbour Recovery Centre (CRC) in London’s Docklands. CRC is a fully resourced and modern workspace, with your company’s technology recoverable and ready to use within minutes.
There are 500+ dedicated positions available, dedicated and syndicated, all offering onward connectivity to iomart’s network of fully owned UK data centres, private fibre network and 25+ global Points of Presence. The facility was purpose built by FortressAS following consultation with leading businesses and is close to the City of London.
