INDIANAPOLIS – Bluelock, provider of Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) for complex environments and sensitive data, is pleased to announce its rating as a leader in Forrester Research’s The Forrester WaveTM: Disaster-Recovery-As-A-Service Providers, Q2 2017 report.

The report evaluates DRaaS vendors against current offering, strategy and market presence criteria to identify leaders in the space, detailing how each vendor fulfills the selected criteria. Bluelock received the highest score possible in 10 of these criteria, including data security, implementation and support.

“We are not only honored to be recognized as a leader in the DRaaS space by Forrester, but also humbled by receiving the top score in the “core DRaaS offering” and “value proposition and vision” criteria, which we believe is representative of the breadth and scope of our approach,” said Bluelock CEO Christopher Clapp. “We go to great lengths to develop, maintain and execute strategies for some of the largest known DRaaS projects, many of which require complex hybrid configurations. Implementation and data security, two of the criteria in which we received a 5/5, can be the most difficult areas to ensure success, but our focus is paying off.”

According to the report, “Bluelock’s automated recovery includes machine startup, resource provisioning, success/failure assessment, hierarchy-based and a group-based recovery of systems based on their dependencies or RTO/RPO requirements...[Bluelock] has strong professional services to support friction-free onboarding, and runbook development. Bluelock deploys a host of security infrastructure like two factor authentication, a high-availability (HA) firewall, an intrusion detection system (IDS), automated and manual penetration testing.”

The Forrester report states, “I&O leaders are increasingly responsible for supporting their firms’ digital businesses and are often measured by the effectiveness of customer engagement. DRaaS promises to help I&O pros build a resilient technology infrastructure so they can deliver always-on services where downtimes are either imperceptible or last just a few seconds.”

This recognition follows Bluelock’s inclusion in several industry reports and leading outlet vendor lists, including Gartner’s 2016 Critical Capabilities Report for Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service and Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service, IDC Innovators: Cloud Services Enablement, 2016, InformationWeek’s 25 Cloud Vendors Worth Watching, and eWeek’s A Close Look at Leaders in Rapidly Growing DRaaS Market.
