The endpoint data backup solution enhances the enterprise utilization of OneDrive for Business and defends data from ransomware attacks
Parablu has announced the availability of BluVault, a secure endpoint data backup solution for Microsoft OneDrive for Business users. The next generation solution enables enterprises to use OneDrive for Business as a backup target for the endpoints.
BluVault has a unique integration with Microsoft’s OneDrive for Business offering. It automatically backs up user data from endpoints to their respective OneDrive for Business storage accounts. BluVault works in tandem with Parablu’s CASB solution – BluKrypt – which encrypts the data stream using the customer’s encryption keys before writing it to the OneDrive cloud – making the security, even more robust. The solution offers a 100% defense from ransomware and other malicious attacks.
The Parablu solution which can be deployed on-premise or hosted in the Microsoft Azure cloud, can reduce endpoint backup costs by as much as 70% as compared to existing on-premise or cloud based solutions. Existing MS Office 365 customers who already have a One Drive subscription can use the solution without any extra storage cost. The solution is scalable and can effortlessly scale to cover 100,000+ endpoints.
“OneDrive for Business make it easy to manage your work files, share them and collaborate from any device. Parablu enriches OneDrive for Business with customizations for backup, security and scalability enhancing the cloud experience for customers”, said Narendra Bhandari, General Manager – Developer Experience and Evangelism, Microsoft India.
Anand Prahlad, CEO, Parablu, said “Enterprises, at just a fraction of their current cost, can now deploy a solution that gives them 100% protection of their data on endpoints, 100% utilization of their OneDrive for Business subscriptions and 100% scalability across geographies and devices.”
