Specialized Data Systems Partners with Agility Recovery Solutions

As part of its effort to provide the total solution for Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery products and services, Specialized Data Systems (SDS) is pleased to announce its new business partnership with Agility Recovery Solutions. SDS‘s Business Continuity Consulting group brings more than 10 years of Business Continuity planning experience to its customers and is overseen by a Master Certified Business Continuity Professional. Agility, formerly a division of GE, has nearly 20 years of experience in providing recovery solutions to businesses across the United States and Canada. With this partnership, SDS is able to offer banks and credit unions the most efficient and cost-effective contingency solution.

The Agility remote recovery solution is both proven and inexpensive. It has helped businesses recover from local to widespread disasters—even those as catastrophic as Hurricane Katrina.
“We are very excited to offer the Agility solution as part of our suite of products”, says Marc Riccio, President of Specialized Data Systems. “Agility understands the community banking market and its unique requirements as well as we do.”

“Agility is pleased to partner with Specialized Data Systems to reinforce the importance of all businesses, small and large, having a business continuity plan”, said Agility CEO Bob Boyd. “Together, Agility and SDS offer a comprehensive solution unmatched in the industry – one that ensures operational efficiency and the protection of company data.”

More often than not ‗disasters‘ are everyday events that can have crippling effects on a business: a broken water pipe, a building fire, a power surge, or power outage – not necessarily the natural disasters and regional events dominating the headlines. Agility‘s ReadySuite solution provides businesses with the critical assets needed to resume operations. Upon declaration of a disaster, ReadySuite members will have access to the following resources:

  • Power – generators
  • Technology – PCs, Intel servers, tape drives, phones and fax machines
  • Space – office space complete with desks and chairs
  • Connectivity – satellite for voice and Internet access

“This is the perfect recovery solution to offer our customers”, states Hall. “Many financial institutions work within the constraints of tight budgets but are required by regulators to ensure that an effective, testable recovery strategy is in place to recover them from any type of business interruption. Agility helps eliminate the challenges of implementing such a solution.”

SDS Contingency Professionals offer quality services without the large price tag that often comes with consultants. ―I have assisted several banks who have paid a lot of money to get from A to Z in their preparedness, only to find out they just got to G. In a few short months, we were able to put a complete solution—from planning to recovery to testing—in place for a fraction of the cost they expected to pay,‖ says Tracy Hall, MBCP, a Business Continuity Project Manager for SDS.
