Liquid Telecom has installed an $800 000 endpoint data protection and management solution infrastructure.

The infrastructure, which is called CrashPlan Africa, is expected to enhance data protection and storage in the country.

Liquid Telecom Zimbabwe managing director Wellington Makamure told NewsDay yesterday that the telecommunications company partnered with a US-based company, Code 42 in March and started deployment of data servers early this month.

“Enterprises need help to protect and manage endpoint data,” said Makamure.

”The consumerisation of information technology and pervasiveness of mobile devices has meant losing control and visibility of the information created and accessed by staff using a range of mobile devices.”

Liquid Telecom brought Code 42 technology to Zimbabwe and has data servers in Pockets Hill in Harare.

“By partnering with Code 42, Liquid Telecom sought to get the expertise and experience of the world’s leading backup and restore provider, taking advantage of its footprint in 14 African countries to offer its customers enhanced value-added cloud services,” said Liquid Telecom in a statement.

“This unique partnership allows Liquid Telecom to leverage its existing expertise in managed services, telecoms and local data centre operations within the region, while combining these capabilities with Code 42’s EDGE Platform technology.”

With 35 000 clients, Code 42 has clients with international brands and these includes BBC, Google, Apple, Expedia, Harvard, Getty Images and National Geographic.

CrashPlan Africa has been designed to move data to new devices without having to rely on IT and provides protection and un-compromised security leveraging on Liquid Telecom’s state-of-the-art data centres.
