Backup & Archive

One of the main SaaS offerings companies are adopting is Microsoft Office 365. The benefits are clear: with Office 365 you no longer have to maintain your Exchange or Sharepoint servers, you resolve many of the licensing issues that can arise with on-premises deployments, and you can access your services from anywhere and at any time, and more.

However, Microsoft Office 365 guarantees the availability of your data, but not its protection. As the customer, that data belongs to you and it is your sole responsibility to protect it. It is essential to have enterprise-class protection for your Office 365 deployments, so you can seamlessly recover your data from malware, ransomware, viruses, or any other malicious event, or worse: the chance that data will be deleted by accident through human error.
