Replacing backup technology with Zerto’s IT Resilience Platform significantly improves data recovery speeds, visibility and compliance reporting process
Zerto, the industry leader for IT resilience, today announced that Adams Bank & Trust, a full service financial institution, has implemented the company’s IT Resilience Platform. With Zerto,
Adams Bank & Trust continuously protects its critical business applications and customer data from unplanned disruptions, including ransomware, and has significantly improved its data recovery point objectives, data visibility and compliance reporting.
Adams Bank & Trust, a regional bank founded over 100 years ago with locations throughout Nebraska, Colorado and Kansas, was hit by several ransomware attacks in past years. To protect its data, the bank previously used tape backup technology that had lengthy six, 12, and 24 hour recovery point objectives. Although still used today for archiving, retrieving files and data following an attack or disruption was expensive, cumbersome and required countless man-hours that left significant room for human error during the data re-entry process.
Adams Bank & Trust implemented Zerto’s IT Resilience Platform in 2016 and saw immediate results. Zerto has allowed the bank to instantly replicate data to multiple local and remote sites, keeping data and applications continuously available and allowing for any point-in-time recovery for seamless rewind to moments before an outage or attack.
“Zerto has replaced almost all of our previous backup solutions, and with near instant replication, it’s easy to recover if we get hit by ransomware,” said Jason Glazebrook, Network Administrator, Adams Bank & Trust. “Now, if a ransomware attack happens, we’ll be able to recover in about an hour instead of up to 24 hours. With Zerto, we have clearer visibility of our protection level and a more robust first line of recovery. We can now rest assured knowing we are resilient against unplanned problems.”
Zerto also offers Adams Bank & Trust key automation and test failovers without impact to production, and will create audit and compliance reports for examiners, documenting the pass/fail of each step in the recovery process. Zerto’s single file-level recovery capabilities have also made recovering from user errors easy, particularly when it comes to data corruption. Additionally, Zerto offers complete visibility for monitoring across multiple sites, while workload mobility capabilities make it easy for the bank to migrate to new hardware as needed.
“An IT resilient mode of operations allows companies to be ready for any type of disruption – planned or unplanned – enabling businesses like Adams Bank & Trust to mitigate the risk of downtime or data loss, allowing them to focus on more strategic initiatives such as cloud, modernization and digital transformation,” said Caroline Seymour, Director, Product Marketing at Zerto.
