Current data security landscape

Due to the high impact that IT failure can have on a business, particularly when confidential customer information is held, risk management has become an increasingly important issue. While data security is vital, it is also essential that companies have business continuity plans in place to ensure they can continue to operate with minimal downtime.

Banking and financial services companies are faced with increasingly stringent compliance requirements when managing their data. Failure to comply with these laws can result in severe financial penalties, highlighting a real need for a reliable IT solution.

Company background and services

Established in 1994, Onyx Group has grown from a regional, home grown IT company to a national technology provider serving some of the UK’s best known businesses. The company owns and manages data centres and workplace recovery sites across the UK including London, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Teesside and Sheffield.

Over the past three years Onyx Group has completed six acquisitions which have seen its customer base grow to over 2,000 clients. The company has expanded across the UK and developed new services and products, such as 24/7 IT support, which are tailored to meet the needs of businesses in the financial services industry.

Key services include: data centre and workplace recovery facilities, business continuity planning, cloud computing, IT security, managed services, Internet and WAN services and IT support.

Highest quality standards

Onyx Group’s five data centres are all ISO 27001 accredited, with its Newcastle data centre being the first in the UK to achieve such a standard. This is proof of the company pro-actively setting the highest industry standards. The ISO standard is awarded to companies who can demonstrate that the necessary controls are in place to address confidentiality, integrity and the availability of information, factors which are particularly important to the financial services industry.
