HESSLE, England, September 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
Giacom announced today that it has partnered with SkyKick - an award-winning market leader in cloud automation and management solutions, to bring complete Office 365 backup protection to its reseller-only channel. Newly launched in the Giacom Cloud Market, SkyKick Cloud Backup for Office 365 enables resellers to back up all their customers' Office 365 mailboxes, SharePoint, OneDrive for Business, and Groups and Teams data.
SkyKick's product portfolio is used by more than 20,000 partners in more than 125 countries, making it easy for IT resellers to back up and manage their customers in the cloud. With 75% of companies experiencing a data loss event due to human error, backing up data is vital for businesses. Without an Office 365 backup solution, it can take IT administrators up to six hours to recover a single email or data file.
Featuring unlimited backup and retention, powerful search indexing and one-click restore that enables IT administrators to retrieve data in minutes, not hours, SkyKick Cloud Backup can perform up to six daily backups, with data able to be restored it to its original location. In addition, the solution - which is also GDPR-compliant - has recently introduced Office 365 Groups and Teams as a backup feature, making it one of the most technically complete data protection solutions for Office 365.
Mike Wardell, CEO at Giacom, said: "We're excited to be partnering with SkyKick to bring their powerful, GDPR-compliant solution to our customers. Their fast, easy and automated backup is simple to understand and easy to provision. As a value-added solution for our Office 365 customers, using SkyKick enables resellers to reduce customer churn while creating healthier margins.
