Backup

Iron-clad defence against catastrophic data loss.

Microsoft strongly advises organisations to use third-party backup solutions to close the circle on all possible data loss scenarios. Under the Shared Responsibility Model, protecting your organisation’s data ultimately falls on your shoulders – but we can lighten the load.

Your needs

Data is the lifeblood of your organisation. You’re well aware of the financial, operational and reputational damage its loss or corruption can cause. You need an iron-clad backup solution that closes the gaps in Microsofts SLA and integrates seamlessly with your entire tech footprint, including third-party cloud workloads 

Precision, flexibility and granular control are non-negotiable. So is the ability to confidently comply with corporate retention policies and other regulatory requirements.

Unsure whether Microsoft back up covers all your needs?

We get this question a lot. Yes, Microsoft does offer native backup on all primary apps like SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business and Outlook. No, they are not enough to fully protect your data.
