Disaster Recovery & Compliance

IBG was originally founded by providing IT services for Citibank and its internal business units. We have over 15 years experience providing service to the financial industry. Disaster recovery has long been a source of frustration for financial firms. In the past, the only choice for organizations was to setup identical systems in their contingency sites to meet compliance mandates, often resulting in exorbitant costs and wasted resources. Unfortunately, many firms decided to completely neglect their DR strategy as a result. With the current financial climate becoming more regulated firms, financial firms are forced to pay more attention to their disaster planning and compliance needs. IBG’s Cloud DR solutions are designed to provide a cost effective solution for small- to mid-size financial services firms.
