The Indiana Fidlar eByte – May 2018

Warrick County moves to BASTION Hosted-Server Environment


  • BASTION secures records against all elements
  • Cyber-attacks continue to effect Recorder’s Office
  • Recorder retains function in county-wide infection
  • Absolute back-up redundancy for recorded data

Fidlar is pleased to offer products and services that assist with advancing the abilities of the Recorder’s Office. With AVID BASTION, the hosted-server environment, office staff will process and record documents into the official repository in the most secure manner possible. Via the BASTION environment, Warrick County data will be stored and hosted with Fidlar production servers that are backed up to a secondary off-site repository. Recorder Pat Brooks will have peace-of-mind knowing that their Official Public Record will remain secure and maintained to the highest degree.

As natural disasters pose a threat to the status of the Official Public Record, non-natural disasters pose a threat that is more pointed to local government offices. Malware and ransomware strikes pose an imminent threat to the Recorder’s Office, BASTION permits for a higher security against these ever growing cyber threats.

BASTION also provides the unique ability for the Recorder’s Office to maintain recording function if the entire courthouse were ever to be infected by a cyber-attack. As data is processed with AVID, it is securely transferred and then stored within two separate remote locations. This infrastructure ensures a safe and effective plan in the instance that county data was ever hacked. If the primary BASTION server environment were to be jeopardized, the backed up data will be able to get your office resuming activity within hours of the incident.

As a service, BASTION undoubtedly ensures that recorded data will remain preserved. All Land Records images and data are stored on Fidlar hosted production servers located in a communications grade colocation facility which are then backed up at a secondary location. The Official Public Record of your county will remain in a state that ensures a full and absolute recovery in the face of disaster.



“Warrick County experienced a very unfortunate event that involved water damage to the Judicial Center that was quite stressful for all the offices. Once this incident happened I knew that I wanted to move my office onto the BASTION service. There is just too much at risk and I want the peace-of-mind going forward. With BASTION, I know that our existing records and anything we process in the future will be safe.” – Pat Brooks, Warrick County Recorder
