Sensitive Human Rights Data Stored Securely and Cost-Effectively in the Cloud
International Justice Mission (IJM) is a human rights agency. They need to be upgraded to handle the growing data volume of critical videos and other documents that are used in criminal prosecutions. Security with the tape backup system was also not optimal. After replacing the tape backup system with a Whitewater gateway and public cloud data storage, IJM was able to avoid a number of costs, including the recurring costs of the tape system and those related to an eventual upgrade. The Whitewater appliance encrypts data in transit and at rest, and moves the data off-site automatically, eliminating the danger of critical information being lost or damaged while in transit or at someone's home. Data restores will be faster and backups are done more frequently.
