About the Client

Healthcare company based in Yardley, PA with 1000+ employees

The Problem

The customer had an urgent requirement to comply with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regulations which requires companies to gain affirmative consent for any data collected from people who reside in the European Union.  The customer was concerned with their offsite backup strategy, data flows, cross-border data transfer, privacy and security monitoring, to ensure their compliant with the new regulation.

The Opportunity

Contour was engaged to provide a GDPR compliant backup solution to keep their data in the EU but also had to keep cost down to ensure the business could support this solution

Contour Solution

Contour proposed a Backup as a Service (BaaS) solution hosted in the EU to service the client’s backup requirements and keep them in line with the new GDPR regulations.  The Contour solution provided scalable compute and storage resources that were available to the customer on a consumption basis which helped keep costs down.

About the Client

Global Pharmaceutical company based in Florham Park, NJ with 6,000+ employees

The Problem

The customer was under extreme pressure to complete a compliance audit and didn’t have in-house resources to conduct the appropriate qualification and validation.  Additionally, IT had upcoming maintenance renewals looming on all of their data center infrastructure which created a necessary spend on the IT environment which created even more challenges for the internal IT team.

The Opportunity

Contour engaged with the client through an outbound campaign focused on the Pharmaceutical industry.  Contour’s messaging caught the attention of the VP of IT because it specifically addressed the unprecedented challenges of complying with the regulations of the Life Sciences industry.

Contour Solution

Contour proposed a Dedicated Private Cloud (DPC) which provided ultimate security for this high-regulated business.  Additionally, Contour engaged their Compliance and Technical Writing team to qualify and validate the environment so it would meet the strict regulations of the Life Sciences industry.  This solution included real-time, continuous replication powered by Contour’s Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solution and included Managed Services to help augment day-to-day IT operations so the Internal IT team could focus on innovation.
