Ensure Uninterrupted Cloud Services

 

Your financial services enterprise needs to unbundle banking infrastructure and support third-party websites and apps for open banking via APIs. You need to develop an ecosystem to grow revenue via open marketplaces, peer-to-peer services and social platforms. To secure this infrastructure and mitigate risks, you need to implement robust business continuity planning and disaster recovery systems.

Portfolio+ safeguards the integrity of cloud services

Portfolio+ safeguards the integrity of cloud services by preventing dysfunction of IT systems and accelerating recovery in the event of a breakdown. We integrate top-down threat management systems and proven failover mechanisms for business continuity of banking services delivered on cloud platforms, such as AWS Cloud, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.

Our cloud backup and recovery mechanism minimizes disruption by prioritizing business functionality based on potential risks and threats. Notably, we implement Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) architecture to enhance business continuity planning with real-time alert, notification, diagnosis, and analysis services.

Why Portfolio+ Business Continuity Planning Services?

Portfolio+ enhances resilience of business systems by deploying redundancy across availability zones of public cloud service providers. We maintain two replicas of each source (primary) database in other availability zones. It helps enterprises use a database replica in another availability zone as the primary database if the source database is unreachable or unavailable. Our approach boosts the availability and fault tolerance of containerized services and books of records.

Our team leverages several tools for monitoring cloud infrastructure and performance metrics. It helps us distill insights about the health and risk profile of cloud resources and identify issues. Automated tools consume data from log streams and event tables for issue resolution. Granular fault detection and detailed analysis trigger proactive action for business continuity by quickly restoring the operational state, if required.

Portfolio+ prevents data corruption and information loss through automated archival, periodic backup and encryption of data stored on the cloud. We adopt SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) for secure data transfer and superior file management. Our team undertakes Agile troubleshooting of infrastructure and application logs to detect anomalous patterns and correlate issues. We take snapshots of databases at regular intervals as part of the backup mechanism to reinstate compromised databases to a specific state.
