As part of their migration to Office 365, Frontier Silicon wanted IT to have a single access point for viewing, managing, and recovering end-user data, whether on-premises (on-prem) or in the cloud. Their Druva InSync deployment brings disparate data sources together and empowers the organization to quickly identify data risks, place legal holds, and monitor and track their data to better adhere to company data-governance and industry-compliance regulations. With InSync, remote teams in Europe and Asia have been able to back up to local clouds while IT maintains a unified view of what’s going on across all instances.
According to Bingham, set up and maintenance has been easy: “It’s quite hands-off, which is great!” In addition, administrators at Frontier Silicon can determine how much control users have regarding their backups, such as whether the backup schedule can be changed, backups can be paused, backup folders can be altered, or settings can be changed. Administrators can set a per-user quota, set limits on the number of devices users can back up with inSync, and control when a device is deemed inactive.
Apps like Office 365, generally don’t give you adequate backup, compliance, or other critical features.”
