About the case study

About the Customer:    

This customer has established themselves as a leading name in the BFSI sector. Known for their services and commitment to excellence, they have emerged as a standout player in the industry.  

Industry: Banking, Financial Services, and Insurance    

Solution used: Parablu’s BluVault for Microsoft 365 Exchange Online Backup .

The challenges they faced:    

Operating within the BFSI sector, the customer operates in a heavily regulated vertical and manages sensitive financial data. They rely on Microsoft 365 for email communication but faced security concerns like:    

  • Cloud service limitations    

Microsoft, as the provider of the cloud infrastructure, operates in a ‘Shared Responsibility” model which means they do not take full responsibility for consumer data security. While Microsoft protects its cloud tenant to the extent required to meet their SLAs, they do not extend the same level of responsibility to the data uploaded by the customer. This created a potential vulnerability, as any compromise of the MS tenant could result in unauthorized access to sensitive data.     

  • Litigation hold vulnerability     

The customer also faced a challenge concerning a litigation hold. In the MS environment, data placed on litigation hold is, by design, stored within the same repository as active data. Consequently, if the MS tenant were to be compromised, data under litigation hold would be equally at risk, undermining the integrity of legal proceedings and compliance efforts.          

To address these challenges, the customer turned to Parablu’s  BluVault solution. BluVault provides a comprehensive data protection and backup solution tailored to meet the security requirements of BFSI companies for Exchange Online backup.
