SkyKick Cloud Backup for Office 365 now available from Giacom

Friday, September 7, 2018

Have you ever tried to retrieve accidentally deleted data from Office 365? It’s not easy. It could take as long as six hours to restore one individual email or data file, usually by way of exporting PST files to re-import them into another profile and replicating it back to the server. But what if we told you there’s a faster, easier way to restore your customers Office 365 data.

Introducing SkyKick

SkyKick Cloud Backup for Office 365 is now available to purchase in the Giacom Cloud Market. As a market-leading SaaS solution, it features unlimited backup and retention, powerful search indexing and one-click restore that enables administrators to retrieve data in seconds. Plus, you can back up your customers data up to six times a day and restore it to its original location.

Why backup Office 365 data?

Perhaps your customers feel there’s no reason to back up their Office 365 data. Maybe they believe it’s already done for them by Microsoft. It’s stored in the cloud after all. Unfortunately, Microsoft only replicate their data in the cloud as a redundancy feature; a way to help comply with legal retention for data regulations, so it’s not a substitute for backup.

According to Security Week, the total volume of data loss at an enterprise level has increased more than 400% over the past couple of years. If a company does not adequately protect itself from sophisticated internal or external attacks, data loss could be disastrous for the business. In fact, SSE Network Services report that 93 percent of companies that lost data for 10 days or more filed for bankruptcy within one year.

Perpetuating the “it’s not me” scenario

Many companies, particularly SMBs, fall into the trap believing that data loss won’t happen to them. With more and more sophisticated attacks happening every day, it’s not a matter of ‘if’ but ‘when’. However, they can reduce their risk by using value-added solutions that are designed to keep their productivity on track.

SkyKick is one of those solutions. As an IT reseller, your administrators and technicians’ time is valuable. Being able to restore data in bulk for Exchange Online and SharePoint, whilst ensuring that files aren’t liable to cross-infection from OneDrive for Business is critical to keeping your customers safe, secure and happy.

What’s included in SkyKick?

Giacom resellers can choose from two packages, Exchange Online Mailbox Backup and Office 365 Backup. The former only backs up Exchange Online (which comes with most Office 365 plans), public folders and shared mailboxes. The latter backs up all the above, alongside SharePoint, OneDrive for Business, and Office 365 Groups & Teams.
