BIOSME is the first and only company in the Middle East to be recognized by Gartner as a “niche player” for DRaaS.

BIOSME was appointed after an exhaustive search for local DRaaS providers. Watania sent out a detailed request for proposals to several potential partners and evaluated their expressions of interest against a specific set of criteria and BIOSME was determined as the overall best performer with respect to the financial institution’s specific requirements, Watania officials confirmed.

Dominic Docherty, MD, BIOSME said, “Disaster recovery is an essential business strategy to ensure operations stability in challenging and uncertain operating environments. We are happy to be able to support Watania and its customers in ensuring business continuity over the foreseeable future.”

DR enables organisations in the GCC and elsewhere to continue functioning in the event of a catastrophic event. A strong DR solution can make or break an organisation’s ability to recover natural or manmade setbacks. When every second of downtime means lost revenue, disaster mitigation demands quick thinking and immediate action.
