Vade Email Security
Does Office 365 need additional security?
Because of its dominant share of the cloud email market, Office 365 is an irresistible target for cybercriminals.
With just one email attack, they can penetrate the entire Office 365 suite along with other corporate systems and data, wreaking significant financial and reputational damage.
The key to protecting your Office 365 environment is by taking a layered security approach.
While Office 365’s native security features catch most mass spam waves and known threats, they don’t provide sufficient protection against advanced phishing and spear phishing attacks, as well as unknown, polymorphic malware.

Office 365 Backup
Data Loss Happens in the Cloud.
People delete data. Mostly accidentally, sometimes intentionally. And there is the ever-present threat of ransomware and other malware.
Office 365 provides redundancy, but that only ensures the availability of the present state of the data. It does not back up the data to protect against data loss events.
That means that even in the cloud, data protection is necessary.
We can provide Backup and Recovery Solutions for Exchange Online, SharePoint and OneDrive – ensuring that your data is safe from accidental or malicious deletion.
