The Winston-Salem Chamber of Commerce relies on technology to advance the interests of the local business community and to serve its members. Six years ago, however, its technology infrastructure was in disrepair. Although it ran regular backups, 20 percent of its data remained unprotected. The organization outsourced IT management to Symantec partner OUTSOURCEIT, which implemented Symantec data and endpoint protection solutions. The Chamber now protects all its data, with an 84-fold faster recovery time objective—all while reducing annual IT staffing costs by five figures.
