SPOKANE, WA - 2008 – IT-Lifeline, the leading provider in the Pacific Northwest for Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity (DRBC) services for the small to medium sized market, announces today that they have been awarded a new contract with Horizon Credit Union. Under this contract, IT-Lifeline will be responsible for storing off-site data backup for all of Horizon Credit Union’s critical data.

“We look forward to working with Horizon Credit Union as we continue to service the financial industry,” said Steven Tabacek, President and CEO of IT-Lifeline. He added that, “given the current regulatory environment these kinds of services are being sought more and more, especially from the financial industry.”

“IT-Lifeline has proven that their staff is knowledgeable and that our data will be safe and secure. We are proud to have them as an extension of the Horizon team,” said Greg Robinson, VP of Information Services at Horizon Credit Union.

IT-Lifeline delivers a complete recovery and continuity solution, from plans to action, for both core systems and business applications. It’s a solution that ensures full recovery from any type of system failure. Located in seismically stable, climactically mild eastern Washington, IT-Lifeline operates a financial services technology recovery hub. IT-Lifeline delivers all levels of redundancy; from real-time continuation of all or selected priority business operations, to backup and recovery of critical data and applications.

From its beginning in 1947 to the present day, Horizon Credit Union has grown from a small office serving the needs of one company to 17 branches, providing membership to Eastern Washington, Central Washington and North Idaho. In that time, however, Horizon has not forgotten the reason it was established: to provide individualized service to families with common needs.
