Secure Online Backup Solution for Online Car Rentals


Secure Online Backup Solution for Online Car Rentals


This case study highlights how a Secure Online Backup Solution for Online Car Rentals enabled rapid recovery of systems in the event of an outage. Founded in 1968, Go Rentals is one of Ireland’s leading vehicle rental and leasing providers. Over the past 50 years, the business has continued to grow and now has a fleet of over 200 cars and vans. Go Rentals primarily caters for the insurance and tourism sector. However, the organisation’s reputation for high-quality service also makes it popular among SMEs, state bodies, mid-sized companies and globally recognised corporations alike.

The Secure Online Backup Challenge

Following a series of ransomware attacks in 2017, data security and integrity became a top priority for Go Rentals. The organisation had a disaster recovery solution in place, however, it failed to meet Go Rentals’ business requirements. The turn-around time on vehicles in the event of an issue was slow and the solution failed to meet Go Rentals’ customers’ requirements. Aware that its data, reputation and, eventually, bottom line was at risk, Go Rentals began searching for a secure online backup provider.

Secure Online Backup Solution

Stryve provided Go Rentals with a secure online backup solution that not only met but exceeded the organisation’s expectations.
