Microsoft 365 data backup by Keepit for DRK Hessen

The migration of approximately 80% of DRK’s data to the Microsoft Cloud created a need for a comprehensive external data backup solution. Based on the requirements of the employees, fundamental conditions were specified that had to be met by an external backup and recovery solution. Of particular importance was the cloud-to-cloud backup of files from Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Teams, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business.

Restoring content in private channels from Microsoft Teams was particularly important to us. Keepit® makes that possible.

Data protection, or the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), now also influences the choice of digital applications. In this context and with a cloud solution, it was particularly important for the DRK that the data be stored in Western Europe or Germany.

The growing number of cyberattacks also made a backup and recovery solution increasingly relevant for DRK.
