BCC Takes Data Security Seriously

Kevin E. Steele

Burke Costanza & Carberry LLP is pleased to announce our upcoming technological upgrade and its many benefits to our clients! Soon, BCC will be transitioning all servers and desktops into a rock-solid secure data center and we wanted to share with our clients the excitement of that upgrade and the benefits you will receive as a result.

Rock-Solid Security

News of data breaches are making the headlines on an almost daily basis. Therefore, we are taking extra steps to protect your sensitive information. All of the firm's data will be housed and backed up across multi-million dollar data centers in two geographic locations within the United States. Each data center is protected by 24/7 high-level physical security. The company and the primary data center selected has been physically inspected by our Business Manager and Director of IT and the physical security measures are outstanding. 

For maximum protection, all data center hardware, internet service, and power is fully redundant. If anything happens to fail, BCC should experience no data-loss or any downtime whatsoever.

Concerned about your data? We're upgrading so that you can sleep easy:

  • Your data is backed up in two different locations every two hours. No more worrying about tornadoes, fire, roof leaks, or earthquakes!
  • We retain multiple versions of your data for 30 days.
  • Data access is protected by military-grade encryption technology.
  • Your data is no longer located on local servers or PCs, which can be lost or stolen.

Have any questions? Please contact us and let us know!
