The Bunker boosts Caretower’s security posture

Established in 1998, Caretower is one of Europe’s leading value added resellers in the field of network security and is committed to delivering tailored solutions to overcome its customers’ diverse security challenges. Since its founding, Caretower has maintained longstanding relationships with all the major security vendors to ensure it can remain at the forefront of changes within the industry. This in turn allows Caretower to assist its customers in their long term security strategies.

The Challenge

Caretower has grown rapidly over the years, attracting a number of security conscious customers from a variety of sectors. Due to this growth and in order to maintain its uncompromising approach to information security, Caretower required a new and more secure infrastructure provider to enable it to securely deliver its range of services. Critical to the decision making process was the ability to accommodate the needs of those customers that necessitate the highest levels of security possible.

Our Ultra Secure Solution

After evaluating several data centre suppliers and with security driving the choice, Caretower selected The Bunker based on its security posture and the technical specification of its data centres. The highly secure and military grade UK-based facilities were the ideal data centres for Caretower, offering the enhanced levels of security required to meet the needs of its customers.

The Bunker enables Caretower to demonstrate a robust approach to data and system security through the control and restriction of physical access, protected by 24/7/365 onsite security, via The Bunker’s Security Operations Centre (SOC).

Importantly, The Bunker’s heritage in information security and ISO 27001 accreditation reassures Caretower’s customers that their data is always secure.

Crucially, The Bunker’s image and security positioning has afforded Caretower real business benefits. Caretower has been able to provide additional selling points for its services and can offer more value to its customers, due to its new highly secure environment and the additional layer of security provided. This has contributed to Caretower’s continued growth by enabling it to sell more services to new and existing customers.  Caretower expects its customer base to grow even further in the near future and will expand the amount of space used at The Bunker’s facilities accordingly.
