Eze Castle: Managed Services for Hedge Funds
A few days ago Kaseya’s Dan Shapero predicted managed service providers would go vertical in 2009. Then I spotted this prime example of that trend: Eze Castle Integration Inc. has launched a managed service for hedge funds and investment firms that have 10 or fewer seats. It’s a terrible time to be targeting the financial services sector with IT solutions. Or is it?
Actually I think Eze Castle is onto something. As financial services firms — including small ones — strive to cut spending amid the recession, they may be more receptive to a managed services pitch.
In Eze Castle’s case, the MSP solution includes:
“services such as BlackBerry, Microsoft Office Suite and Exchange Server, files services and access to market data feeds. Firms also receive fully redundant disaster recovery plans that are managed at Eze Castle’s multiple Tier-III data centers.”
Eze Castle is headquarted in Boston with offices in several US cities.
