Meet Compliance Mandates & Maintain a Competitive Edge

financial services storage guideWhile rich data is invaluable for a competitive edge, personally identifiable information (PII) that financial services organizations collect must be located in their data centers, secure, encrypted, and optionally masked or anonymized and fully protected against ransomware threats. And PCI data regulations are even more stringent.

Cloudian HyperStore has the most data security certifications of any on-prem object storage. For financial services organizations, it makes an ideal backup target that can provide end-to-end data protection to meet compliance requirements, while also enabling fast and easy data access to meet business needs at up to 70% less cost.

Back Up & Protect Your Financial Institution’s Office 365 Data with Veeam & Cloudian

Microsoft Office 365 offers geo-redundancy, which protects your data held in Office from site or device failure. But it does not replace backup. With geo-redundancy alone, you have limited recovery options if your institution’s data is accidentally deleted or maliciously attacked.

For credit-decisioning data that needs to be stored for 7 years to meet compliance regulations and avoid fines, or data that is required to be kept for various periods to meet legal case or consent order requirements, data loss is simply not an option. But storing this rarely-accessed data on high-cost storage also does not make economical sense.

veeam object storageVeeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 (VBO) paired with Cloudian HyperStore protects your Office 365 data from accidental deletion, rogue employees, and malware. From VBO, Office 365 backups are stored directly to Cloudian, providing a fast, on-prem, disk-based data protection solution for your institution at up to 70% less cost than traditional storage solutions.
