O365 protection

Microsoft 365 and Google G Suite protection, despite the common misconception held by some IT professionals, cloud services, such as Microsoft 365 and G Suite, often require additional protection, like backup, to ensure against loss of control, loss of data or corruption.

Microsoft 365 and G Suite protection from Redstor helps schools to securely manage the protection of both Microsoft 365 and G Suite data, set their own retention policies for data and address potential compliance issues. In addition, it ensures that all data can be recovered in the event of a deletion, accidental or otherwise and adds extra layers of security.

Microsoft 365 protection is available for OneDrive, SharePoint, Exchange and Teams. G Suite protection is available for individual Google Drives and Gmail.

Ransomware protection

Ransomware attacks are increasingly becoming highly targeted, focusing on high-value victims, with sensitive data, such as schools and demanding high ransom costs, for data to be unencrypted.

Redstor has helped schools get their vital data back, mitigating the effects of an attack and saving thousands in unpaid ransoms.
