HENDERSON Fashion House, one of the leading suppliers of menswear and clothes in Russia, has implemented Acronis Data Protection backup solutions. The main driver for such decision of the customer's management was the fact that their IT staff had to deal with hardware failures regularly.
The relevant licenses were obtained through Softline, a trusted partner of the domestic vendor. Softline's competence in data protection helped to implement this solution, significantly increasing the efficiency of business processes in HENDERSON. Due to the long-term cooperation with the vendor, Softline team could offer the optimal delivery terms for the customer.
It was the first comprehensive implementation of information backup on user workstations in HENDERSON IT infrastructure. Today, the solution runs on 30 customer workstations and protects data arrays ranging in size from 80 to 100 GB.
The backup system from Acronis Data Protection was deployed by HENDERSON staff. A good example of the implemented system efficiency is the incident with the computer in the customer's accounting department. This computer hosted 1C configurations and crypto keys. Due to the new solution delivered, its recovery took about 20 minutes. This helped to avoid the losses associated with the inaccessibility of key information systems for the financial department.
Based on the results of the project, HENDERSON plans to continue cooperation with Softline and expand the use of Acronis Infoprotection solutions for data security: the company's experts intend to increase the number of protected workstations to 50. In addition, the scope of tasks solved by the installed system will be expanded.
"We must protect each individual node of the information infrastructure: the company extensively uses virtual resources allocated for specific tasks. Even a short downtime can have a negative impact on the chain of interconnected elements, with the most critical being the elements used for customer service", says Henderson Chief System Administrator Vyacheslav Zakariev.
"We highly appreciate the good partnership with Acronis Infoprotection team. Cooperation with this Russian vendor allows us to expand the portfolio of products offered to customers. The market for information security services will grow. Thus, our cooperation will continue to develop", notes the Product Expertise Development Manager of Softline Backup Systems Group Galina Romanova.
