BIOS Middle East, a specialist in Disaster Recovery services, has been appointed Disaster Recovery Service (DraaS) provider by National Takaful Company PJSC, Watania, as part of a proactive strategy on the part of the Abu Dhabi-based insurance company to ensure Business Continuity and embed resilience across its operations.
BIOSME is the first and only company in the Middle East to be recognised by Gartner as a niche player for DRaaS.
BIOSME was appointed after an exhaustive search for local DRaaS providers.
“As a publicly listed insurance company it is important for us to prevent data loss and avoid disruption to our business,” said Gautam Dutta, CEO, Watania.
Martin Sebastian, CIO, Watania said: “We ran our entire production in DR with 100% user capacity and successfully completed the switchback. The exercise was a great experience and a confidence booster for Watania. Everything went smoothly obviously with some lessons learnt as well.”
BIOSME has delivered over 60 successful DR projects to customers across the GCC.
Dominic Docherty, MD, BIOSME, said: “Disaster Recovery is an essential business strategy to ensure operations stability in challenging and uncertain operating environments. We are happy to be able to support Watania and its customers in ensuring Business Continuity over the foreseeable future.”
DR enables organisations in the GCC and elsewhere to continue functioning in the event of a catastrophic event.Click below to share this article
