With the increasing reliance on technology and the growing volume of data generated, businesses recognise the importance of effectively managing and leveraging this valuable asset to gain a competitive edge. From customer information and market trends to operational metrics and financial records, data has become the quintessence that fuels the growth and success of organizations across industries. Cloud migration has emerged as a popular solution for businesses, offering flexibility, scalability, and cost-effectiveness. However, with this migration comes the responsibility of ensuring the security of your data on the cloud.

At Smart Cloud, we recognize the significance of data security and have invested in a composable infrastructure powered by HPE. Our infrastructure incorporates multiple redundancies and backup solutions to mitigate the risk of data loss. While these measures provide a strong foundation, it’s crucial to understand that no system is entirely immune to cyber attacks. Thus, we also encourage and assist our customers to implement their own security measures within their organisations.

One of the most widely adopted cloud-based services is the Microsoft 365 suite for Business. Microsoft entrusts its customers with the responsibility of securing the data stored on their M365 platform. This poses a challenge for businesses, as they need to establish an alternative backup solution for their critical data. This is where Smart Cloud’s M365 Backup and Recovery comes into play.

With Smart Cloud’s M365 Backup and Recovery, your data on Outlook, SharePoint, OneDrive, and Teams is securely backed up on a local cloud platform. This ensures quick recovery of records in the event of accidental deletion, malicious attacks, or other unforeseen circumstances. By opting for Smart Cloud at Melita Data Centre, you can have peace of mind knowing that your backup data is hosted in Malta, offering enhanced legal jurisdiction protection and access rights.

The key benefits of Smart Cloud’s backup and recovery include:

  • Enhanced Data Security – By implementing a dedicated backup solution for your data, you add an extra layer of protection against potential data breaches or loss.
  • Quick Data Recovery – Accidental deletion or malicious attacks can disrupt business operations. With Smart Cloud’s backup solution, you can swiftly restore lost data, minimising downtime and maximising productivity.
  • Legal Jurisdiction Protection – Hosting your backup data in Malta provides better legal jurisdiction protection and access rights, ensuring compliance with data protection regulations.
  • Expert Support – Smart Cloud offers expert support throughout the cloud migration process. Our team of professionals can guide you in implementing robust security measures and assist with any challenges you may encounter along the way.

By partnering with Smart Cloud, you can fortify the security of your Microsoft 365 data and safeguard your business against potential threats. We understand the complexities involved in cloud migration and are committed to providing reliable, secure, and efficient solutions tailored to your specific needs.

Remember, when it comes to data security, proactive measures are key. Choose Smart Cloud as your trusted partner and ensure the safety and integrity of your data on the cloud.
