February 5, 2019 Ann Arbor, Mich. — Otava, a global leader in secure, compliant cloud services for enterprise and channel partners, is pleased to announce that it has been chosen as the preferred IT partner of Progressive Data Services, a leading data and software services company based in Southfield, Mich. Progressive Data has been providing Fortune 500 level clients with direct marketing, data and software development services since 2013.
When Progressive Data needed a trusted partner with expert knowledge of cybersecurity and a history of providing high performance cloud infrastructure, the company vetted several providers before selecting Otava for their secure, compliant cloud services. As Progressive Data continues to contract with Fortune 500 companies, security remains a top priority.
“We are absolutely a security-minded company,” said Sean Morse, president of Progressive Data. “We have to maintain a culture of security. There’s no way around it. We wanted a local provider that we were comfortable with and reflected the same value of security that we have.”
Progressive Data Services uses Otava’s dedicated private cloud and cloud-based Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) to protect their clients’ mission-critical systems. Their cloud infrastructure is fully managed by Otava staff and includes patch management and first responder remediation to proactively resolve any issues that arise. With DRaaS, Progressive Data’s recovery site can be spun up in hours rather than days, greatly lessening the financial impact of an outage.
“We’re happy that disaster recovery is one of those things that Otava really understands,” Morse said. “If we’re down, money is flying out of our bank accounts. It’s really important that we stay up. And Otava gets that.”
Because of the flexible nature of the cloud, Progressive Data Services can easily scale their business based on demand using Otava’s infrastructure without the burden of making additional capital expenditures.
“I’m thrilled that we are providing Progressive Data services with a pathway to a secure, high available cloud that fits their unique business needs and can grow with them,” said Jason Yaeger, Otava’s Vice President of Business Development and Strategic Solutions. “We’ve embedded a culture of security and compliance throughout our business practices specifically to help organizations like Progressive Data Services who handle sensitive data every day.”
