Doctrieve has aligned with MCI WorldCom to provide clients with a global data security network.
Provider of knowledge management and data security software, Doctrieve, said the alliance will enhance its ability to provide companies with disaster recovery solutions, trim the cost of its services and provide larger bandwidths for data transmission.
Earl Woolley, managing director for the company, said it was a significant move, as MCI WorldCom owns 10 per cent of the recently opened trans-Pacific Southern Cross Cable (SCC) network.
"Through that network, Doctrieve will duplicate its vaults around the globe, so if the Australian vault ever crashed, the system will switch over to vaults in its offices around the world.
The alliance is built around Doctrieve's sureVault product, a data security solution employing electronic data vaulting technologies to backup information. This allows the company to replicate its Australian model in international markets.
