The AvePoint Solution
With its quick, seamless restores, user-based licensing, and unlimited storage and retention, AvePoint’s Cloud Backup for Google Workplace met the school’s requirements. The school district looked at a few other solutions, but they simply didn't have the speed, accuracy, or price point they found through AvePoint.
“The implementation was very easy, and AvePoint walked us through every step of what we needed to do on our end, which was very little,” describes Eric. “After setup, we immediately kicked off our first complete backup of about 5,000 users’ data. The backup was flawless and continues to require little or no input.”
Nearly a year after implementation, Eric is happy with the solution. It is easy to use, with a simple dashboard and user activity reports that help Eric keep an eye on who is doing what. Best of all: the seamless restorations. “Restoration of documents is simply a few clicks, and they are perfectly restored. I also like that we can restore to any revision point, offering us a bit of protection from malware or bitlocker-type attacks.”
Before Eric joined Crete-Monee, the school district was victim to a ransomware attack. The fact that they could use Cloud Backup to restore any document, at any point of time, and even bulk restore, was a game changer for them. “It eliminates our concerns around cybercrime. I am hoping that the solution will help us save money on our cyber insurance this year because of how easy it is to restore at any point in time.”
The end of the school year is when Crete-Monee relies on Cloud Backup the most to transition those changing positions or leaving the school. Prior to Cloud Backup, transitioning content was time-consuming and labor intensive, requiring documents to be downloaded and reuploaded or individually transferred, file-by-file. “Now, the process is simple, and the files go into a folder that is easy to find and well-labeled. We can even strip any permissions the previous owner set. It’s a night and day difference in restoration ability.”
