SEATTLE and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Datacastle, a market leader for business resiliency solutions for the mobile workforce, announced today that it has partnered with Vancouver, BC-based IT solution and managed services provider Bayleaf to launch the Datacastle Endpoint Protection Suite. The new service is one of the first comprehensive backup, recovery and data protection offerings hosted in Canadian data centers, enabling organizations to comply with Canadian federal and provincial privacy laws as well as address concerns relating to disclosure and the U.S. Patriot Act.
In response to the growth of data privacy breaches, the Canadian government has enacted laws designed to protect the disclosure of personally identifiable information, including the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Document Act (PIPEDA) and British Columbia's Bill 73. An organization's disclosure obligations under these federal and provincial laws may be violated for data stored in the U.S. as this data would also be subject to the provisions of the U.S. Patriot Act, which does not require disclosure of a record request.
"We see a growing interest in SaaS backup and data protection services but not many options for a comprehensive solution that is also hosted in Canada," said Kenneth Berry, Director of Bayleaf. "We wanted to partner with a company that offered an integrated endpoint data protection solution while also giving us the ability to host the service and our customers' data in Canada."
Datacastle Endpoint Protection Suite is a single agent, policy-driven product offering automatic online PC backup and recovery, AES encryption, port access control, remote data deletion and device trace. The latest addition to Bayleaf's managed services offerings, Datacastle Endpoint Protection Suite is now available as a cloud-based service hosted in Canada's leading data centers.
"If there is one single backup and data protection requirement that we have heard organizations in Canada express, it is that their data must remain on Canadian soil," said Ron Faith, CEO of Datacastle. "In addition to helping us meet this privacy compliance requirement, our partnership with Bayleaf gives us both the market knowledge and technical expertise to deliver the country's first comprehensive backup and endpoint data protection solution."
