Huge Backup Savings-With the company and its data growing at a rapid pace, Brad Candy, Head of IT at Lush
Digital, began to reevaluate Lush’s backup needs. While the company did have a solution
in place, it was becoming increasingly costly to maintain and required the use of different
third-party technologies. With the goal of lowering costs and standardizing around
Veeam®, the leader in Backup solutions that deliver Modern Data Protection, which Lush
was already using on-premises, Candy reached out to his account manager at CDW, Lush’s
technology partner, in search of the right solution. “I ran through the requirements with
him and he immediately went, ‘I know exactly who you need to talk to,’” said Candy.
With iland Secure Cloud Backup for Veeam Cloud Connect, Candy found a fully
integrated, secure solution for no-compromise data protection that is managed through a
unified console. And the best part? It came at a fifth of the cost as their existing solution.
“iland just blows everyone away. I don’t know what they do, but there’s some sort of
magic going on in the background that keeps costs down and the quality up,” said Candy.
“From my point of view, iland Secure Cloud Backup met all the criteria we had in mind for
an enterprise-level, scalable solution.”

Ransomware Realisation: ‘We Are Doomed’-
Sukumar Panchanathan, group IT manager at Oceanscan, got the news on the penultimate
day of Sept. 2021. “We’ve been attacked.” It’s a moment IT professionals hope never
arrives. But it had: A sophisticated strain of ransomware had crawled through the
company’s entire network, encrypting multiple file layers and making recovery nearly
With a mountain of pressure now on his shoulders, Panchanathan sprung to action. He
knew what it could mean, both for the company and himself — the devastating potential
for downtime and lost revenue, not to mention the questions that would be asked of him.
How did this happen? Were they prepared?
“Everyone’s initial thought is, ‘We are doomed.’ If attackers can infect organisations like
the Pentagon and the CIA, then what is Oceanscan? Nothing,” Panchanathan said. “When
disasters like this happen, it’s the responsibility of the head of IT — my responsibility —
to steer us out of it. That’s what I get paid to do. It’s a lot of pressure, a lot to take on.”
As the frequency, sophistication, and impact of cyberattacks continue to skyrocket, there
is unfortunately no way to guarantee complete immunity to potential data breaches.
However, by planning, implementing, and testing an in-depth security strategy that is
multi-layered, integrated, and ready, organisations can drastically limit the damage done
by internal and external cyber threats. Luckily, Panchanathan came prepared with iland on
Pyramid Healthcare Optimizes the Delivery of Mental Health Services over the Cloud with iland Secure Cloud.
PYRAMID HEALTHCARE is a behavioral health company focused on mental health and
substance abuse treatment. They offer in-patient and out-patient addiction recovery
services to those dealing with alcohol and drug abuse and adolescent behavioral
problems. They treat roughly 11,000 patients per day in 100 facilities spread across
seven states, including Connecticut, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, North
Carolina and Georgia.
When Lawrence Bilker, CIO, joined Pyramid Healthcare in 2018, he brought with him
a cloud-first strategy. Essentially, all cloud options would be evaluated before relying
on their last choice of an on-premises solution. With limited on-premises facilities, the
Pyramid team realized they needed a scalable solution for their electronic medical records
system that would grow by leaps and bounds.
“Our company is in the business of behavioral health. We’re not a data center company.
We’re not a telecom company. We’re not an Infrastructure as a Service provider,” said
Bilker. “So, why not go get services from a company that does this for a living?”
That company was iland.
