Vaalco implements SOX-compliant backup

NetMass online backup service and Asigra’s TeleVault secure essential records with proven, auditable solution.

Houston-based Vaalco Energy is to address its Sarbanes-Oxley compliance issues by leveraging NetMass’ online backup service. The NetMass service leverages Asigra’s ‘TeleVaulting’ backup technology to provide agentless distributed backup and recovery. The backup/restore technology helped Vaalco meet its audit requirements in a recent year-end review of accountability in financial records management.


Vaalco CIO Robert Walston said, ‘The NetMass/Asigra solution enabled us to meet our auditors’ requirements for compliance, including proof of security, data integrity, and validity of backup and restore processes. Initial trials determined that the service met our criteria, from hot backup of SQL databases to offsite storage and automated policy-based processes.’


NetMass CEO Mark Martin added, ‘Vaalco is an early adopter of best of breed technology for securing its essential financial records and should be a great role model for other oil and gas companies just beginning to address Sarbanes-Oxley regulations.’
