The AvePoint Solution
With AvePoint Cloud Backup, Danish Crown gets the comprehensive backup, granular restores, and fast recovery they need. The backup and restore solution offers four automatic backups a day and provides built-in storage, flexible pricing plans, and more for M365, Salesforce, Google Workspace, Azure, Power Platform, and Dynamics 365.
Data security was a critical deciding factor for Danish Crown, and AvePoint’s commitment to cloud security was a big selling point. “The fact that AvePoint is SOC 2 Type II and ISO: 27001 compliant was very important,” Henrik says. These assessments verify a vendor has high-security standards in place and that they are robust and sound.
Cloud Backup also checked several boxes for Danish Crown with its advanced security features like data encryption in transit and at rest; single sign-on authentication; and delegated administration. This last one was particularly crucial, as it enabled them to protect their sensitive data, even within the organization.
“The differentiated access is a brilliant function,” says Henrik. “It enables us to differentiate between several layers of restore capabilities, limiting the group of administrators who can access and restore data from containers that host highly sensitive information.”
“The advantages of a full backup are clear,” Henrik says. “Users will tell us they accidentally deleted some important emails, but they’re not sure which ones or even how many. With Cloud Backup, we can say ‘no worries, I can restore the inbox the way it looked last night.’ Data restoration is now 10-20 times faster than our previous recovery methods.”
After the successful deployment of Cloud Backup, Danish Crown decided to try Fly, AvePoint’s migration solution. They had been looking for an enterprise-grade tool to help integrate newly acquired companies into their Microsoft 365, a process they do between five and eight times a year. These migrations can be anywhere from 10 users to 400 users, the largest of which required them to move 300 GB of data.
“The biggest advantage of Fly is that, although you need to spend some extra time setting up connections and mapping out users, you minimize the time spent on the cut-over itself.” Henrik estimates Fly cuts work in half, reducing their migrations by 50%. This also saves Henrik from worrying, because should an error occur, it’s easy to analyze the log and identify the files that didn’t move and why and run a quick job to fix it.
