Phoenix Software Joins Forces with ORIIUM and Druva to Ensure Recovery of Data for Office 365 Environments

Leading provider of Office 365 to UK public sector further expands data availability and management portfolio

Phoenix Software, one of the largest Microsoft Office 365 providers in the UK, today announced it will be working with ORIIUM and Druva to support its customers in protecting data created in cloud applications. Together with ORIIUM’s CX:inSync, which is powered by Druva, the leader in cloud data protection and information management, Phoenix Software will provide customers across the local government, education, healthcare and housing association sectors with full data recovery and archiving for Office 365 environments.

For Phoenix Software, the CX:inSync solution provides automated data protection for any and all files created using Office 365,  providing archiving and recovery from data corruption, deletion and ransomware attacks.  This data is securely replicated into ORIIUM’s managed public cloud service, which efficiently stores the data within the UK, aiding businesses in aligning to regional data sovereignty regulations.


“CX:inSync provides companies with a simple and effective way to protect the data that employees create, regardless of the device they use or where data is created. As more staff are mobile or use a variety of devices during their regular work patterns, CX:inSync can ensure that the data they create remains protected and secure. We’re delighted we can help Phoenix Software deliver the best cloud-based data protection solutions in the UK,” commented Chris Kiaie, Managing Director at ORIIUM.

“Cloud applications like Office 365 are essential work tools at our customers, but the data that these applications create has to be treated securely over time. Our clients need to augment their cloud apps to protect against issues like ransomware and ensure that data protection rules are followed automatically. The CX:InSync service ensures our customers can collect data from these applications and securely preserve it in sovereign UK-based cloud locations,” commented Johnny Ellis, Sales and Marketing Director at Phoenix Software.

“Public sector organisations across the UK deal with sensitive data on a regular basis – all of this information has to be stored and protected over time. These organisations will also have to manage those records in accordance with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation when it comes into force in May 2018,” commented Rick Powles, Regional VP, EMEA at Druva. “The partnership with Phoenix Software and ORIIUM will make it easier for public sector organisations who have been rapidly adopting cloud applications to better comply with these critical regulations.”

ORIIUM’s CX:inSync solution is designed to provide organisations with a secure way to back up, protect and archive critical data from endpoint devices such as laptops and mobiles, cloud applications and from remote office servers. This simplifies the management side for IT staff, optimises network performance and reduces the cost to protect and manage data over time.
