ANN ARBOR — Officials of the managed IT services provider Online Tech Inc. announced the company had been chosen as the preferred IT partner of Progressive Data Services LLC, a marketing services data and software company based in Southfield.
Progressive Data has been providing Fortune 500 clients with direct marketing, data and software development services since 2013.
“We are absolutely a security-minded company,” said Sean Morse, president of Progressive Data. “We have to maintain a culture of security. There’s no way around it. We wanted a local provider that we were comfortable with and reflected the same value of security that we have.”
Progressive Data Services uses Online Tech’s dedicated private cloud and cloud-based Disaster Recovery as a Service to protect their clients’ systems. Its cloud infrastructure is managed by Online Tech staff and includes patch management and first responder remediation to proactively resolve any issues that arise. With DRaaS, Progressive Data’s recovery site can be spun up in hours rather than days, greatly lessening the financial impact of an outage.
Because of the flexible nature of the cloud, Progressive Data Services can easily scale its business based on demand using Online Tech’s infrastructure without the burden of making additional capital expenditures.
Said Jason Yaeger, Online Tech’s vice president of business development and strategic solutions: “We’ve embedded a culture of security and compliance throughout our business practices specifically to help organizations like Progressive Data Services who handle sensitive data every day.”
Online Tech is a full-service IT provider with a range of managed service offerings, including public, private and hybrid cloud; disaster recovery; and data protection. For more information, visit www.onlinetech.com.
