Backup & Recovery

Simplified data protection and recovery for email and other non-structured data

The Challenge

Organizations moving to the Microsoft Office 365 cloud often discover only after migration that they need a separate solution for protecting their email data. Moreover, the drive to simplify IT has led growing numbers of organizations to revisit their data protection strategies for Exchange Server on-premises environments as well. Adding to the complexity, many exist in a hybrid email environment.

Office 365 offers no backup and recovery capability, while solutions designed for Exchange Server tend to be costly and complex to manage. Organizations have long faced three choices: back up to an on-premises infrastructure, deploy a cloud-based point solution, or do nothing and hope for the best. Each of these options brings disadvantages, inefficiencies, operational complexity, and unacceptable risk.
