Mr. Hayes will be speaking on a panel entitled: Using Managed Services to Complete—or Compliment—Your Data Protection Strategy. He will address how many large enterprise companies have a data security infrastructure in place. But for smaller companies, or enterprises that need extra protection, a managed services provider may be a cost-effective solution. He will provide insight for when and where it makes sense to use MSPs to keep your data protected. Those interested in participating in the online seminar can register by visiting:

DS3 DataVaulting was founded in 2002 to provide offsite, online data backup and restore services, which enables customers to rapidly and securely back up and restore files, databases and operating systems. DS3 DataVaulting uses state of the art software solutions, such as Asigra Corporation’s Televaulting, to schedule and perform online and agentless backups. DS3’s software detects and records only block level changes, thereby reducing the amount of data, which is required to be transmitted daily for backup. The data is compressed and encrypted onsite and transmitted via the Internet to the DS3 data vault where it is stored. Data files are available 24 hours a day in the event restoration is needed. Large data restores to support disaster recovery are managed by strict service level agreements with the customers.

Mr. Hayes co-founded DS3 DataVaulting with Idris Grant and Bill McCormick in 2002 and is responsible for operations and business development. Prior to joining DS3 DataVaulting, Mr. Hayes was the Managing Consultant of the McCormick Group’s Information Technology practice. He founded this business unit with DS3 DataVaulting’s CEO, Bill McCormick, in 1995. During his tenure he grew the Information Technology practice to one quarter of The McCormick Group’s annual revenue. During this period, Mr. Hayes’ practice group attained both local and national recognition, winning contracts to provide professional services to prestigious organizations such as Marriott International and Lockheed Martin Information Technology.
