Nexsan and Jack Henry & Associates, Inc.® Announce Strategic Alliance
Leading Provider of Information and Transaction Processing Solutions for the Financial Services Industry Integrates
THOUSAND OAKS, CA–( EMWNews – April 1, 2008) – Nexsan, a leading provider of
energy-efficient, long-term disk storage, today announced a strategic
alliance and marketing agreement with Jack Henry & Associates, Inc.
financial services organizations.
Based on terms of the agreement, Jack Henry & Associates integrated the
Nexsan Assureon® secure storage solution with its Synergy™ Enterprise
Content Management (ECM) platform and its 4|sight™ check imaging
platform. Synergy is the modular ECM solution marketed to the more than
1,700 banks supported by Jack Henry Banking™ and the more than 650
credit unions supported by its Symitar™ division, and sold outside its
core client base through its ProfitStars® brand. 4|sight is the check
imaging platform provided by Jack Henry Banking.
Nexsan Assureon is a secure, intelligent archive storage solution that
combines advanced encryption with content addressed storage, information
lifecycle management (ILM) technology, and other patent-pending security
features into a single, fully integrated disk-based storage solution.
Assureon was designed from the ground up specifically to address the
long-term storage and management of fixed content and compliance
information, making it ideal for organizations like financial institutions
that want to continually improve business practices and proactively comply
with regulations being enforced by numerous agencies.
This fully integrated ECM/Nexsan imaging solution is already in full
customer production. Alpine Bank of Glenwood Springs, Colo., recently
implemented the integrated Synergy/Assureon solution to support its
expansion, increase data protection, and achieve higher energy savings.
This regional bank which has approximately $2 billion in assets, 35
locations throughout Colorado, and more than 100,000 customers, stored more
than two million document pages in the first two months and has realized a
30 percent net storage savings.
According to Tony Wormington, president of Jack Henry & Associates, “Our
customers want sophisticated imaging solutions that require less physical
space, save power, maximize system availability, ensure data protection,
and operate in the event of a local emergency — all while improving
customer service and satisfaction. We believe the most practical and
efficient way to consistently provide state-of-the-art imaging solutions is
to align ourselves with innovative providers of specific and proven add-on
technologies such as Nexsan Assureon. We partnered with Nexsan based on
its ability to provide archive storage solutions that combine the
high-density storage capacity, leading-edge security features, energy
efficiency, and price/performance our customers need.”
Philip Black, Nexsan’s president and CEO, said the strategic alliance and
marketing agreement with Jack Henry & Associates marks the first time
Nexsan has aligned with a market-specific system integrator (SI). “We are
thrilled with our relationship with Jack Henry & Associates and the
opportunity it provides for us to move deeper into the financial services
industry. This industry is a primary target market for Assureon, which was
designed specifically for businesses that demand reliable, long-term disk
storage at affordable prices.”
Nexsan has built a strong reputation for a complete line of long-term disk
storage solutions that offer exceptional price/performance and superior
energy efficiency. A pioneer in “green storage,” Nexsan has delivered
energy-efficient storage solutions since 2006, allowing organizations to
power down disk drives to an idle state to conserve more than 30 times the
energy of a conventional fibre channel solution per petabyte of storage,
