All data is not equal, according to IDC Viewpoint


Over 70% of organisations are executing on a digital strategy with data at its core. With this view, it places data ahead of applications software, at the centre of an organisation’s digital capability. IDC predicts that in 2020, over 50% of multinationals worldwide will have automated their IT infrastructure, cloud, and data governance setups to comply with regional data regulations (e.g. GDPR).

Cloud Backup and Microsoft’s security changes


Microsoft is making some security changes, that may affect users of StorageCraft Cloud Backup of Office 365. Depending on your Microsoft license level, and security type you’ve enabled, this may impact you. In order to avoid disrupting your Cloud Backup of Office 365 protection, we recommend the following approach:


  • Enable MFA per user and utilise App Passwords for authentication. (Talk to us about WatchGuard’s AuthPoint, or LastPass MFA from LogMeIn).
  • Utilise Conditional Access policies to enable MFA for Admins.
