The Business Continuity Challenge

Fieldfisher wanted to put a sophisticated Disaster Recovery solution in place to meet its high standard business requirements. Although Fieldfisher has a very strong working relationship with its managed services provider, it realised it was best to have a third-party provider to add another layer of resilience. The organisation spent considerable time and effort sourcing the most suitable vendor for this solution. The company wanted to mitigate any cybersecurity or IT risks and sought to reduce its Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO). Fieldfisher wanted to ensure that there was no unexpected downtime for the business which it felt would be unacceptable to its standards of client support.

The Business Continuity Solution

Fieldfisher was eager to engage the leading experts in assisting them to plan a Disaster Recovery strategy. Stryve consultants were successful in evaluating the organisation’s options and costs. We designed and delivered a custom solution which met the stringent requirements of Disaster Recovery. Stryve’s solution allows for failover at any time and, above all, ensures that, in the event of a cybersecurity breach, Fieldfisher are in a position to recover its systems in seconds.

“If a disaster occurs all it takes is a single click to failover and when the problem is solved we hit a single-click switch to fallback. We can now easily test and verify that DR works without having to dedicate valuable staff time to this which allows us to get on with our core business. Choosing Stryve also ensured that our data remained at all times within the Jurisdiction.” ‍
