Clumio debuts ‘air-gapped’ backup for Microsoft 365
Clumio customers can now protect their Microsoft 365 workloads using the startup’s AWS-based data protection as a service. Backup account separation is a key aspect of the new facility
Clumio backs up Microsoft 365 user data in separate accounts and claims that this imposes an air-gap between the user’s account and the backup data. We think this stretches the meaning of ‘air-gap’, which generally describes offline tape cartridges that have no network connection, rather than two separate public cloud accounts.
