Considering the data protection challenges and goals of this real estate services company, Parablu suggested it’s signature endpoint backup solution – BluVault – Endpoint Backup to OneDrive.
BluVault’s ability to automate backup processes, along with a host of other security and privacy features offered them the much-needed relief from time-consuming and inefficient manual efforts around backups while providing reliable data protection. The best part was that BluVault allowed them to use their existing OneDrive for Business storage allocations as backup storage targets.
Here are a few key reasons why BluVault was their ultimate choice to overcome their data protection challenges.
- Automated backups
What this estate service company sorely needed was to eliminate all manual efforts around the backing up of endpoints. BluVault’s capability to establish secure and automated backups from all business endpoints like laptops, desktops, and Macbooks would help them remove all dependencies on end-users, and dramatically reduce IT time spent on manual backups.
- Zero storage cost
Moving to an automated cloud-based backup usually comes with extra investment in storage infrastructure and related services. But Parablu could offer them all the benefits of a modern enterprise-grade backup solution without having to spend a penny on target storage. BluVault’s patented technology integration with Microsoft 365 allows enterprises to use their existing OneDrive for Business storage as a backup vault. And this would help the company considerably reduce the overall cost of adopting a cloud-based backup solution while also increasing the Return on Investment (ROI) from their Microsoft 365 subscription.
- Regulatory Compliance
Almost all regulations require businesses to protect the data they have. So, automated and reliable backups are an essential stepping-stone to compliance. BluVault could clearly help in reaching its compliance goals with GDPR and other regulations.
- A single pane of glass
A backup strategy, unless closely monitored and managed, can be ineffective. Efficient monitoring during backups and restores can help enterprises identify gaps and anomalies that can impact data protection. And the sooner such gaps and anomalies are detected, the quicker the business can react to take proactive steps to mitigate. BluVault’s centralized management console would help this real estate service company get 360-degree visibility on their backup & restore activities and let them make policy changes anytime they required.
- Defense against Ransomware with comprehensive backups
Data backups are proven to be perhaps the best defense against a ransomware attack. Having a safe alternate copy of all critical data means that the business can control its own destiny, and not have to negotiate with an attacker. BluVault backups stored in a secure storage container, insulated by user accounts, data encrypted in transit, and at rest, had the ability to let this organization be confident in dealing with potential ransomware attacks.
- Data protection against insider threats
Threats to data that originate within the organization can be sometimes more damaging than external threats. An insider with privileged or even elevated access to systems has the potential to cause harm either inadvertently or maliciously. A backup copy that can ensure an isolated and immutable copy of data that is inaccessible to end-users is an essential way to protect data from insider attacks. With BluVault, they could effectively minimize data losses due to insider threats.
- Policy-based backups for unique protection needs
Every organization is different and has varying data protection needs. What they wish to backup, how often, how many versions of data they wish to retain, etc. Answers to questions like backing up personal user data or allowing administrators to view and restore user data – can all vary depending on the organization and the culture.
BluVault offered the company the ability to configure backup and recovery processes differently for different sets of users or groups. These simple policy-based settings, combined with a reliable and automated backup process – would give expression to their data protection strategy. As they grew as a business and add more employees, the range of policies that BluVault offered would ensure a flexible, scalable, and robust execution of their backup strategy.
