STROUD, England, Feb. 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- One of the UK's Top 30 independent Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers, Hazlewoods, has signed a five-year deal with backup and disaster recovery specialist, Cristie Data, to protect its corporate and client data.
As a result of substantial growth in Hazlewoods client base over the past few years, the Gloucestershire firm required a more robust and scalable solution that would reduce the risk of data loss.

Mark Brackley, IT Manager, Hazlewoods said: "With the business growing rapidly, we needed to replace our previous DR and Backup solution with one that met both current and predicted future requirements. Cristie Data understood our business but also brought fresh ideas. I'm pleased to say the implementation has gone well and testing has proved we selected the right provider and solution."
