BASTION Provides Essential Service to Recorder’s Office

  • BASTION secures records against all elements
  • Absolute back-up redundancy for recorded data
  • Reduces Workload of IT Department
  • Recorder retains function in county-wide infection

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, the recording staff will process and enter documents into the official repository in the most secure manner possible. Via the BASTION environment, recorded data will be stored and hosted with Fidlar production servers that are backed up to a secondary off-site repository. Recorder Sandy Hill will have peace-of-mind knowing that their Official Public Record will remain secure and maintained to the highest degree.

AVID BASTION provides the unique ability for the Recorder’s Office to maintain recording function if the entire courthouse were ever to be affected by a disaster. As data is processed with AVID by a user, 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 put in harm’s way. If the primary BASTION server environment were to be jeopardized, the backup data will be utilized to get your office resuming activity within hours of the incident.

The AVID BASTION environment also alleviates some of the typical duties of the county IT Department. Tasks such as maintaining technical hardware, updating software and routine server backup procedures that may typically be performed on-site by county IT or a third-party IT vendor are performed instead by Fidlar from a secure, protected off-site location.

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.



“This past August, Orange County’s data was hacked. The incident left many offices without processing abilities. However, through BASTION, the Recorder’s Office was unaffected by the hacking. We were able to work without disruption and without our data being affected. Although it was an unpleasant occurrence for Orange County, I was relieved, knowing we had BASTION in place.” – Sandy Hill, Orange County Recorder
