Can your clients depend on you when cloud data goes missing?
Be their backup - protect their data with BackupAssist 365.
Easy and cost effective local backups of cloud data with MSP pricing and licencing.
High availability does not equal data backup
Today’s ultra-reliable cloud services often lead customers to forget their responsibility for maintaining effective back-ups of their own data.
While cloud providers do protect against infrastructure disasters, they often don’t protect against data loss caused by these factors.
When something like this happens and your customer turns to you - do you have a solution for recovering their missing data quickly and efficiently?
Accidental deletion of data going unnoticed until it's too late
Accidental triggering of malware causing cloud data to be encrypted or deleted
Malicious activity by a 'rogue' employee or account hijacker deleting data that should have been kept
Accidental mis-configuration by administrators or contractors causing data loss
Issues at the cloud provider causing data loss

The BackupAssist 365 Difference...
While most competing products offer cloud to cloud backups, BackupAssist 365 focuses on cloud-to-local backups which provides a number of benefits.
No need to trust (yet another) cloud provider service
Complete control over where the data is stored
Save costs by not having to pay for rented cloud storage
Store the data for as long as you need
Quick and easy recovery of data in an emergency
Easily backup the downloaded data
The downloaded data is stored in completely standard formats, avoiding ‘vendor lock-in’ and providing peace of mind to customers that their data will always be available in the future.
Benefits for MSPs
Deliver a great new service for your customers
and generate profit
Because BackupAssist 365 stores data locally, you can continue to provide data restore and retention services, even in the age of the cloud. The low buy price means you can make higher margins than reselling cloud-to-cloud backup solutions.

The Experts Opinion“Microsoft leaves little doubt that protecting Office 365 data is the customer’s responsibility. Microsoft’s responsibility ends at keeping the service available, which they do well. Organizations need to find a way to backup Office 365 data to protect themselves from accidental file deletion or a ransomware attack without adding too much complexity. BackupAssist 365 provides a simple, automated way to protect Office 365 data without having to get locked into another cloud provider or a backup vendor’s proprietary backup format.”

Typical deployment scenario
From your client's side
Generally only one install is required per client. Connect to multiple mailboxes or file stores in the cloud and download them centrally.
Use a server or a workstation - compute requirements are modest.
Use in conjunction with on-premise backup software: simply include the downloaded data as part of regular backup jobs with BackupAssist and achieve even better protection via a 3-2-1 backup system.
From your side
Unlimited clients can hook into the Managed Backup Console (MBC).
You receive daily email updates, and can oversee operations easily.
MBC keeps records of historical backup results, manages billing and administration.
