Sterling Data Storage Helps Registered Investment Advisors Meet FINRA Compliance Requirements
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Sterling Data Storage announced today the availability of secure computer backup solutions designed to help investment professionals comply with Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) regulations.
FINRA sets strict guidelines for ensuring confidential data related to clients and transactions remains top secret. FINRA compliance by registered investment advisors (RIAs), investment brokers and financial advisors ensures their licenses remain in good standing. It also contributes to overall public confidence in the investment market.
"Sterling Data Storage offers highly secure computer backup solutions to meet the unique needs of investment professionals," said Jim Morand, CEO of Sterling Data Storage. Continues Morand, "No matter how complex the information or how large the files, Sterling Data Storage offers a protected system designed meet the strictest security requirements."
FINRA requires a copy of all client and business records are kept offsite in a secure manner and available for retrieval when requested by the Commission. Features such as encrypted data transfer, restricted access to data files and a network where data remains intact even in the event of a connection failure make Sterling Data Storage's computer backup solutions among the industry's best.
"We invest in cutting-edge technology to ensure our financial advisor and investment broker clients stay in compliance with FINRA regulations," said Morand. "We frequently work with RIAs and understand the significant pressures they face in safeguarding client information."
RIAs and other investment professionals can expect top-notch service and the strictest confidentiality protocols. Sterling Data Storage's lightning fast computer backup runs on an automated system, making it easy to use and helping to keep costs low. Features include email alerts signifying when backups begin and after they successfully complete. Making file backup automatic allows RIAs to focus on other important aspects of their jobs while providing peace of mind that this aspect of FINRA compliance has been completed.
Sterling Data Storage's special system uses both local and remote data storage to meet the twin goals of quick recovery and optimal safety. This dual-location solution ensures that stored data stays safe, even in the event of disaster.
RIAs, investment brokers and financial advisors reap the same benefits of scalability as Sterling Data Storage's other clients. Backup as a service pricing allows storage capabilities to grow as a company's needs grow, easing transitions and ensuring clients pay only for the storage they use.
Meanwhile, Sterling Data Storage's enhanced technology reduces the storage consumption and computing resources required to complete a secure backup. Sterling's proprietary technology accomplishes this efficiency by scanning edited files daily and incorporating only changes to the stored information. Clients who choose may opt to save multiple versions of files, making storage solutions completely customizable.
Sterling Data Storage takes its mission of securing vital data seriously, and offers the most robust system available for compliance with FINRA requirements.
