Partner Profile: How Tech Data and Microsoft Can Provide Strengthened Data Protection
Office 365 is everywhere and used for everything, with 300 million paid seats worldwide and housing up to 60 percent of all the sensitive data that's stored in the cloud today. Despite its ubiquity, however, not enough organizations are doing everything they can to back up their Office 365 data. It's not enough to rely on Microsoft's built-in protections; Microsoft assumes responsibility for data loss caused by outages in its own datacenters, but not for data loss caused by user error or malicious attacks.
When it comes to improving data protection in Office 365, IT distribution giant Tech Data sees a big opportunity for partners. In this Partner Profile, Tech Data's cloud solutions director Mike Ward talks about how partners can capitalize on this backup opportunity by urging their customers to move to Microsoft 365 Business Premium and to adopt a powerful third-party backup solution like Veeam Backup for Office 365. Together, these products give partners a more robust and cost-effective backup framework to pitch to customers -- a win for everyone involved.
