Data Backup Comes Standard

Data associated with your cloud-based collaboration suite is automatically backed up as part of Impact CompleteCare.

Did you know? One in three companies report losing data stored in cloud-based applications. That means the permanent deletion of potentially hundreds of work hours. The truth is, even data in cloud-based applications is vulnerable to:

  • Malware damage or ransomware attacks.
  • Accidental end user deletion.
  • Malicious end user activity.
  • Operational errors such as accidental data overwrites.
  • Lost data due to canceled account subscriptions.
  • Misconfigured application workflows.

Due to these insufficient native backups, features and other risks Impact includes Backupify in every Office 365 and G Suite program under our management.

Backupify is a cloud-to-cloud backup technology used to protect data that lives in Office 365 or the G Suite that goes above and beyond industry standard to make sure your enterprise Office 365 data is secure, easily recoverable and protected.

  • Microsoft Exchange, OneDrive, SharePoint, Calendar and Contacts are automatically backed up 3 times a day (on-demand backup available at any time).
  • SOC 2 Type II audited.
  • Supports HIPAA and many other compliance requirements.
  • All data is encrypted both at rest and in transit.
  • Monitoring tools, including audit logs, uptime and availability SLAs and export capabilities are used and reported on as part of the CompleteCare program.
