Hollywood, FL – April, 13, 2006 – IPR International, a leader in data protection and recovery, today announced that the company was honored with nominations in two categories, “Best Midmarket Solution Services” and “Best Presentation”, by attendees at the Spring 2006 Midsize Enterprise Summit. Produced by Vision Events®, a Gartner, Inc. (NYSE: IT and ITB) company, Midsize Enterprise Summit is solely focused on the requirements of midsize businesses and attracted 400 CIO’s and senior IT executives from midsize companies across a wide range of industries. The company also kicked-off its new Judge Ali campaign to bring awareness to the risk companies take when their data is unprotected, inaccessible or unrecoverable.
“We are pleased at the extremely positive response from the attendees to our services and our presentation this year,” said Alice Quinn, Vice President of Marketing for IPR International. “As the only electronic data protection company presenting for the fifth year in a row, this was a perfect opportunity to bring attention to importance that the courts are placing on data recoverability. The courts seem to be saying that if you use technology to create data in your company, you’d better be able to recover all of it when it is requested. We are learning that CIOS are feeling this pressure and are increasingly turning to their general counsel to find the support and the funding to deploy appropriate solutions. We used a humorous approach to get across a very serious message and the attendees’ response to Judge Ali has been tremendous.”
The Judge Ali presentation at the show earned IPR their second consecutive award for Best Presentation and their first nomination in the category of Best Solution-Services. The IPR campaign features a book highlighting key legal cases where the inability of organizations to produce data during the discovery phase of a case cost the company significantly more than the cost of an effective technical solution. Some of the stories mentioned included the FenPhen, Arthur Andersen, Zubulake vs. UBS Warburg and Ron Perelman vs. Morgan Stanley. In 2005, some 52 million people were affected by security breaches, many resulting from lost or stolen backup tapes. The presentation featured best practices for data backup and archiving to help companies limit their exposure to risks related to data protection. The book is available from IPR by visiting www.iprintl.com.
