What Qi Office 365 SaaS Protect can deliver for your Business

Qi Office 365 SaaS Protect offers a granular restore enabling businesses to be selective about what they want to restore, and from which point in time they wish to restore from.

Restoring data in a timely and orderly fashion

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 be chargeable if they have already strongly suggested that you should back up your Office 365 data.   

Full external Office 365 Back Up 3 time a day

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.

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

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’

What backup support is included in Office 365

Microsoft undertake to protect you from

  • Hardware Failure
  • Software Failure
  • Natural Disaster
  • Power Outage

Qi Office 365 SaaS protect provides you with the control regarding restoring data

Limitations of Microsoft Office 365 back up Support

Microsoft will not assure protection from:

  • Human Error
  • Programmatic Errors
  • Malicious Insiders
  • External Hackers
  • Viruses and Malware

Qi Office 365 SaaS protect provides you with full protection via external backup

What is the cost?

£2.50 a month per user will externally back up emails, Share Point, One Drive and Teams.

This software is not part of the Microsoft infrastructure so effectively the data security ‘eggs’ are being spread over an additional basket.  We are all familiar with that idea. You can opt to back up only SharePoint or SharePoint and emails and OneDrive.  The costs will be dependent on your library structure and your data levels.
