What Qi & Datto can deliver for your Business

Qi SaaS Defence is the additional layer of security that provides superior protection from attack.

Fast, Logical, Compliant 365 Restore with Qi SaaS Protect

When Microsoft restores data for you it may not be in the files or folders it was structured in originally and this will likely result in you using your support company for some assistance which will may be chargeable.

All of your Office 365 data: email boxes, SharePoint, One Drive and Teams are backed up every 8 hours and the data is retained for a full 12 months.

Datto full server back up means no down time if the worst happens

Datto server backup provides you with not only an onsite hourly back up of your server via Datto hardware, but provides you with a Cloud copy of your server.  This means that if the worst happens and your server fails or is destroyed, your business is up, running and processing in minutes.

A unified backup provides you with a fast on site backup which is then replicated to the cloud. Disaster recovery at its best.

Data Restored in Hours Not Weeks

Initial response times from Microsoft are commonly 24 hours.
A further 24 hours is usual prior to receiving a ‘call to action’
Business may have to wait up to two weeks to get Office 365 data restored. Qi SaaS Protect ensure data is restored to a logical point in time,

Protection from human error

Over 70% of data loss in cloud applications is due to accidental or malicious deletion by end users.
It is usually more cost effective to maintain the email account of a ‘leaver’ in backup as provided by Qi Office 365 SaaS Protect, than paying for maintaining the mailbox of a member of staff who has moved on.

Protection from Malicious Activity

What would happen if someone deleted all their emails just before leaving your building for the very last time? Qi Office 365 SaaS protect ensures that you have a back up of their emails which cannot be ‘deleted’.
