Our MTCP certification provides organisations comfort that they can avoid undetectable data loss, unpredictable projects and maintain data compliance through all stages of the migration process.
(PRWEB UK) 8 January 2015
MigrationForensics.com, independent market analyst and global advisor for email and data migrations, today announces QUADROtech’s ArchiveShuttle as the first gold certified archive migration tool, as a part of their “Use Certified” campaign.
The MigrationForensics Migration Tool Certification Program (MTCP) allows migration tool software vendors like QUADROtech to demonstrate not only that the tool can perform a safe migration, but also provides an opportunity to demonstrate that it follows best practices for data migration around rigorous criteria of Security, Compliance, Performance, Audit and Data Integrity.
Based on a set of open standards published at MigrationForensics.com, MTCP presents 25 checkpoints, across 5 standards, which are developed on the basis of expertise and research gleaned from the data migration market space.
Certification is available in 3 levels:
- Bronze: demonstrates the tool can perform a safe migration, without integrity issues or data loss
- Silver: demonstrates the tool conforms to best practice, and can perform a safe data migration
- Gold: the premier certification level demonstrating outstanding innovation and best practice for migration safety, process and compliance
“QUADROtech ArchiveShuttle is the first migration tool to have passed our rigorous migration tool certification program, passing 24 of the 25 industry based checkpoints we put in place.” said Dan Clark, CEO of MigrationForensics. Clark goes on to explain that “Our MTCP certification provides organisations comfort that they can avoid undetectable data loss, unpredictable projects and maintain data compliance through all stages of the migration process. For QUADROtech ArchiveShuttle to have certified at Gold level presents something currently unparalleled across the archive and data migration industry. As experts in Enterprise Vault and Office 365 migrations, QUADROtech have demonstrated not only that they produce a tool which can perform safe data migrations, but that it meets the highest levels of both best practice and migration innovation.”
Peter Kozak, CEO and founder of QUADROtech: “Certification is important because we want to do everything possible to give our customers the utmost confidence in our products and practices. Having ArchiveShuttle verified by an independent third party, combined with over 3PB of successfully migrated data behind us, means anyone looking to migrate their legacy archives to new platforms such as Office365, can trust QUADROtech to do so at unbeatable levels of speed and security.”
