"Clumio makes it super simple to protect new workloads as they come online and consolidate the protection of existing ones, like Microsoft 365, on the same platform.”Jason Thomas, CIO, CSK Legal
Clumio’s cloud-native design ensures data is securely backed up in the cloud so it is always available for restores when needed. Tenant data is segmented with unique keys and always encrypted. As an extra layer of security Clumio’s security credentials are separate from Microsoft 365 production credentials. During backups, data is written to an S3 object store in an immutable format, creating an air-gapped security layer. This provides additional peace of mind for a sound recovery in the case of a data breach or ransomware attack resulting in data deletion within production mailboxes, email accounts, OneDrive, or Sharepoint.
The default data protection for Microsoft 365 is 90 days. Ransomware can also be resident in the dataset for well beyond 90 days, making it impossible to restore data before the ransom attack. This period may not meet the required data retention requirements for different industries, putting the enterprise at risk. Clumio enables cost-effective long-term data protection for periods much longer than 90 days. IT administrators can enforce uniform policies across their M365 domains for seven years or more. IT administrators set the policies and Clumio automatically applies those policies to newly added accounts, freeing time for more strategic business activities. Clumio proactively alerts IT Administrators when something needs immediate attention.
If a ransomware attack or another event results in data loss, organizations need to recover quickly to minimize the impact to users and customers. Clumio makes it easy to do point in time, complex restores – quickly and efficiently. Administrators have many options for restores to getting back up and running fast with a search for a specific email or mailbox, specific OneDrive files, or SharePoint site/content. This allows organizations to restore very granular or complete data rapidly without having to search in archive directories within M365. Clumio also has the unique capability to restore services to alternate locations, data sources, and targets, providing recovery flexibility.
