There is no denying it. Office 365 is well and truly the market leader for companies moving to the cloud. Over a fifth of all corporate employees use an Office 365 Cloud Service and over a half of all organisations moving to the cloud opt to use Office 365. Of the top 100 companies in the world last year, 91 of them are using Microsoft Teams. It’s everywhere.
So you may be thinking, “Well, that’s it. No more need for backup. No more need for email filtering. Microsoft have us covered.”
You’d be thinking wrong. Microsoft are not in charge of protecting your data and will not be taking the heat if anything goes awry. This is thanks to their “shared responsibility” model, which can be read as, “we aren’t responsible” model. Essentially, Office 365 offers basic protection. Basic backup. Basic anything to do with software security and BDR (Backup and disaster recovery). This isn’t enough for modern IT teams, firstly from a security standpoint and lack of control, but also in several cases not fulfilling regulatory requirements.
That’s bad news for your customers, but the good news is that you are here to help! What are our options?
Data is vulnerable from all sorts of angles these days. From 70% of data loss coming from accidents like simply deleting or overwriting a file to the 350% global rise in ransomware attacks every year, it’s never been more important for businesses to backup their data, even if they think it’s safe in the cloud.
MSPs need to educate their customers on the risks of not backing up their data. It is not protected to high standards with standard O365. Vitanium offer data protection to an internationally recognised standard, with both ourselves and our data centres being ISO 9001 & ISO 27001 accredited.
Our backup software is compatible with the whole of the Office 365 suite, including Sharepoint and OneDrive.
There is a lot of scope for improving the email filtering with O365. Mailhive Email Filtering is more advanced than the filtering you can achieve with the standard filtering in Office 365. Boasting an impressive 99% spam detection rate and 100% of known viruses, Mailhive is an excellent way to prevent malware attacks through phishing attempts and other emails.
With over 3.4billion fake emails being sent globally every day, many of which are phishing attempts, malware attacks or simply unwanted spam, it is very important to be able to control everything that is coming into employees’ inboxes.
IT teams do not have the level of control they require with O365 as it comes. Mailhive offers increased functionality with granular control, on top of adding another layer of security for companies’ emails. For many industries O365 doesn’t comply with regulatory requirements, making an external archiving system absolutely essential.
There is still plenty of opportunities to work with Vitanium for us to both make some more money. We’re already dealing with over a million customer emails every day through Mailhive, blocking over a quarter of a billion spam emails every year. We’re handling over 1.25 million backups a year, consisting of over 1.75 billion files. Let’s add your customers’ data to our stats.
