Databarracks acquires SecuriData to become UK’s largest cloud backup provider

Secure cloud backup and IT Disaster Recovery company, Databarracks, announced today that it has acquired SecuriData, making it the largest British provider of managed online backup services to business.


Date: 20150830

“This is a great addition to our online backup business and presents an opportunity for us to grow revenues and expand our services,” reveals Databarracks’ Managing Director, Peter Groucutt.

SecuriData has been providing online backup and DR services to hundreds of businesses in the UK since 2004.

SecuriData customers will now benefit from a move to the UK’s most secure hosting facilities in Databarracks’ Tier 4 and PCI DSS compliant data centres. They will also be upgraded to receive Databarracks’ free 24/7/365 telephone or onsite technical support.

“Databarracks will add real value to our business customers, both in terms of security and round-the-clock support,” explains Simon Zimmo, outgoing Owner and Managing Director of SecuriData.

“Furthermore, in recent years our customers have been coming to us to ask about additional cloud services for Disaster Recovery, email hosting or even to move their entire IT infrastructure to the cloud,” adds Simon.
“Databarracks, as a much larger company, has been investing heavily in these areas and so I’m very glad that SecuriData’s customers will be well catered for, both now and in the future.”

“All SecuriData’s customers have been informed of the take-over and our sole objective during this transition is to make sure their service continues without disruption,” says Groucutt.

“It promises to be an exciting year for Databarracks as we are actively seeking businesses to purchase,” continues Groucutt. “Furthermore, we have just been certified to ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 and we are adding lots of new services building on our experience of providing secure and scalable cloud solutions.”

Databarracks’ ultra-secure hosting facilities and reputation for providing pro-active monitoring and first-class technical support have contributed to the company’s continued success in an increasingly competitive market.

“Cloud Backup and Disaster Recovery services have really been the forerunner to the explosion in cloud services we’re now seeing in the industry,” says Groucutt. “When Databarracks and SecuriData were founded, businesses were all backing up to tape and full disaster recovery could take days. A decade on and there has been a real shift in the technology, powered by companies such as Asigra. Backups are now automated and when the worst does happen, full recovery in the cloud takes a fraction of the time.”
