Bridgewater Savings Bank Moves to EVault Cloud-Connected Backup and Recovery Services
EMERYVILLE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Inc., a Seagate (News - Alert) Company (NASDAQ:STX), today announced that Bridgewater
Savings Bank has replaced its costly and inefficient legacy backup
system with the EVault®
Plug-n-Protect appliance, EVault
Offsite Replication Service and EVault
System Restore software for a Cloud-Connected approach to backup
and recovery. The Massachusetts-based community bank chose the data
protection experts at EVault to protect its critical applications and
customer data. The new EVault solution provides cost-effective,
comprehensive backup and recovery that enables the bank to leverage both
on-premise and offsite data protection, and more easily comply with
federal and state regulations.
Prior to partnering with EVault, Bridgewater Savings Bank's IT team had
to sort through numerous reports each morning to validate that its
backups were successfully completed overnight. They also had to download
data restores over the Internet at approximately 1 GB an hour or team
members had to drive hours across the state to retrieve data from their
vendor. In both cases, the bank had trouble meeting its Recovery Time
Objectives (RTOs). Additionally, because the bank's backup data was
stored offsite in a data center on the Eastern seaboard it was
vulnerable to hurricanes and volatile weather.
"Data recovery took too long using our old backup system. The previous
vendor also lacked sufficient coverage in their overall compliance
controls. EVault's auditing report was more comprehensive than the
previous vendor's report, as well as others we considered," said Chris
St. Aubin, Bridgewater's IT officer. "This is a critical issue for any
IT organization in a banking environment. With EVault Cloud-Connected
backup, our reports are consolidated in a single email that we can
easily review and sign off on for compliance and management oversight.
We perform full server DR restores on our VMware test bed in far less
time than we could before. EVault saved us hundreds of thousands of
dollars over the long term in our data backups."
The EVault system has given the bank an easy-to-use, affordable solution
that enables compliance and rapid recovery, backed by the EVault cloud.
Backups are saved locally on the EVault Plug-n-Protect appliance and
replicated to the EVault cloud via the EVault Offsite Replication
Service, greatly reducing recovery and testing times while protecting
data offsite from the risk of hurricanes and inclement weather. St.
Aubin and his staff are able to restore the bank's Windows servers to
different hardware using bare metal restores, speeding the recovery
process even further.
"We understand the strict regulatory compliance and accessibility
challenges that banks like Bridgewater face," said Terry Cunningham,
president and general manager at EVault. "They needed a trusted partner
that could help them more efficiently manage their IT needs. Through
EVault's Cloud-Connected backup and recovery offerings, the bank's data
is protected both on-premise, for fast onsite access, and offsite in the
EVault cloud, providing peace of mind that customers' data is safe,
secure, and compliant."
More than 35,000 midmarket companies rely on EVault cloud-connected
backup and recovery services. Delivered by a team of data
recovery experts and using the very best cloud-connected technology,

protection for fast, local data access and ensured cloud
