Backup as a service

Backup is no longer just a nice-to-have

With the number of cyber-attacks continuing to rise and their sophistication growing, appropriate, reliable and robust backup is, more than ever, a necessity, not just a “nice to have”. Combine this setting with increasingly complex IT infrastructure, and the thought of updating or defining a comprehensive backup strategy can be overwhelming.

Most organisations have on-premises and cloud to consider, so one size might not ‘fit all’. With a multitude of solutions to choose from, it can be difficult knowing where to even start. Plus, your IT team are unlikely to be backup experts, and have loads of other things to be getting on with, so are probably not best placed to deal with it. 

But what if you didn’t have to open that particular can of worms? What if you could find an expert to worry about it for you? The good news is, you can – and it’s more affordable than you might think! 

Why Backup as a service (BaaS) ?

Our BaaS offering has been designed around protecting your organisation’s data in a secure, immutable, and cost-effective way, with simplicity at its heart. Our team will become an extension of yours, taking away the headache of implementing and managing an effective backup and data protection strategy. 

You’ll be able to define your own Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO) requirements – it’s your data after all, so you decide how often it needs to be protected and how quickly you need it back. 

 With BaaS, you won’t: 

need to source the specialist software to perform the backup or the hardware to store the backups on
have to pay for storage you don’t need
have the overhead of managing the process or regularly testing that it works and aligns to your data protection policy
need to worry about compliance

 But you can still:

recover effectively from a cyber-attack if you need to
be confident that your backups are in the right place for the right amount of time
free your team up to concentrate on more important, value-adding tasks
save money on software and hardware purchases and licensing

As well as all that, your backups will be kept offsite, creating an air gap between them and your production environment, which is crucial for ransomware protection. AND they will be stored in a dedicated tenancy, so you know that only Maple and your team have access to restore your data.

Optional BaaS for M365

With the increased adoption of M365, it’s important to remember that Microsoft operate a shared responsibility model. That means they don’t provide backup as part of the suite. So, it’s only right that Maple provide protection for that too, so we offer optional M365 backup across Exchange, OneDrive, SharePoint and Teams data. Get more details on BaaS for M365
