IT‐Lifeline Endorsed by the Oregon Bankers Association

OBA subsidiary BancSource will work with IT‐Lifeline to present Business Continuity services to member banks

LIBERTY LAKE, WA - April 03, 2010 – IT‐Lifeline, the Northwest’s foremost provider of Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity solutions, is the first recovery and continuity solution provider endorsed by the Oregon Bankers Association. IT‐Lifeline will work cooperatively with OBA subsidiary BancSource to offer its member banks recovery and continuity solutions in the event a technology catastrophe affects service to their customers.

IT‐Lifeline will become an associate member of the Oregon Bankers Association and have the opportunity to inform Association members of the importance of all aspects of Business Continuity, from planning and data and business application security and availability to recovery facility options.

“Today, resumption of service to customers after a nature or man‐caused emergency is nearly 100% contingent on a bank’s ability to quickly reestablish the technology infrastructure”, says Gene Meyer, President of BancSource. “Behind every successful continuity experience is a solution provider you can count on. We are very pleased to endorse and help promote the IT‐Lifeline solution to the OBA membership.”

IT‐Lifeline leaders are eager to participate in OBA events, and gratified to be of service to Oregon banks.

“It’s an honor to qualify and become an OBA partner,” says Jim Sandford, IT‐Lifeline COO. “There’s a rigorous examination period, where BancSource vetted our organization, and high levels of service on behalf of the Association, and ongoing benchmarks to ensure top performance in the future. We’re proud to say our experts and solutions were found to be up to the challenge of being OBA’s first business continuity solution provider.”
