Internet Financial Services protects its clients assets in the midst of the worst storm to hit Grand Cayman is nearly 80 years.

In the midst of Hurricane Ivan, [IFS] generously opened its doors to all its employees, their families, key customers and even a few potential customers at its BritCay Building facility to ride out the storm. Although flooding eventually caused the evacuation of the BritCay building and relocation of key assets and staff to International Data Centers, [IFS] was able to provide shelter to over two dozen people, most of whom completely lost their homes, vehicles and possessions in the wake of the storm.

With its highly skilled technical team, [IFS] was able to assure offshore-redundancy subscribers that their data remained available and online at their alternate offshore Data Centers. "Customers having chosen offshore replication and redundancy solutions with us were not disappointed in the results during and after Hurricane Ivan. Global redundancy is the only proven method to ensure resilient service in the event of catastrophic disasters," says CTO Robert Eryou. [IFS] was able to bring email access back online to customers before most had the ability to check it. Not a single email was lost thanks to the [IFS] mirrored web services strategically placed in alternate global Data Centers, purpose built to combat any Island-wide disaster that would severe Caymans' Internet connection, as was the case with Ivan.

“Although our efforts have been focused on our key customers, our families and getting supplies to/from the Island in order to assist the Cayman Islands government, make no mistake that [IFS] is in business and ready to provide our services to the Cayman Islands business community.” said Managing Director, James C. Knapp.

[IFS] is a key technology infrastructure provider to offshore financial and government organizations. [IFS] has secure Data Center locations in the Cayman Islands, Jersey and the Isle of Man and has provided globally redundant secure solutions to international customers for over 6 years.

Some of the services offered by [IFS] include; Secure Data Hosting and Server Co-location, Managed Security Services and Intrusion Detection, Disaster Recovery consulting, seating and implementation, Global Data Replication and Redundancy, Internet development and shared hosting services.
