Today Veritas Technologies announced its new set of data protection and governance offerings, Veritas Data Protection and Governance for Microsoft Office 365 and for Google G Suite. Veritas’ new software as a service (SaaS) is stated to be easy to use and activated. According to the company, this SaaS is designed to deliver enterprise-grade data management capabilities for analyzing, discovering, and recovering Office 365 and G Suite data wherever and whenever necessary.

Cloud office environments are becoming increasingly popular with Office 365 and Google G Suite being the top offerings that come to mind. As more organizations realize the benefits of cloud office environments, adoption will begin to soar but so will potential issues. Businesses need to be able to protect their data and make sure that it is easily recoverable. And with the ushering in of new regulations and compliances, companies need to be able to retain and search their data.

Veritas Data Protection and Governance for Microsoft Office 365 aims to address the above issues. The solution leverages Veritas SaaS Backup for data management and data recovery. It also uses Veritas Information Map and Enterprise Vault.cloud for retention and discovery. All the while, the new solution leverages automation for data protection and governance of users’ Office 365 environments.

Features for Office 365 include:

  • Veritas SaaS Backup is a unified data protection solution that ties together backup, search and restore capabilities in a single user interface for all Office 365 data. A simple, three-step set-up process provides near-immediate access to Office 365 data anytime, anywhere and from any device. SaaS Backup delivers multiple restore options including, direct download, in-place restore, entire account restoration, and account data migration to ensure a seamless recovery experience.
  • Veritas Enterprise Vault.cloud solution helps organizations address strict legal and regulatory requirements such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which takes effect on May 25, 2018. With journaling support for Exchange Online, OneDrive, Skype for Business, and Yammer, Enterprise Vault.cloud can deliver a tamper-proof repository for all content and limits exposure to data deletion or chain of custody violations. Enterprise Vault.cloud solution’s advanced eDiscovery functionality, including Iterative Search, helps organizations accelerate the document review process.
  • Veritas Information Map software presents subscribers with a real-time view of their unstructured data stored across the Office 365 ecosystem. Organizations that maintain a better understanding about their data sitting in SharePoint and OneDrive can make more informed data retention, migration and deletion decisions that limit information risk exposure. Additionally, Information Map collects data regarding file type extensions and can quickly help pinpoint ransomware attacks and other suspicious files to help ensure administrators have all information at their fingertips necessary to best protect their Office 365 environment.

The above features also apply to Google G Suite with a few added benefits including:

  • Support for the G Suite ecosystem of offerings: Veritas SaaS Backup delivers a data protection and recovery solution that spans G Suite, including Gmail, Google Drive, Google Team Drive and Google Sites.
  • Granular search and restore capabilities: Customers can easily preview, locate and restore the exact file, anywhere, any time and on any device.
  • Reliable, automated data protection: Customers can help prevent the risk of losing data with automated features that make and retain data copies in multiple locations. Data is automatically backed up every six hours to help ensure comprehensive protection.
  • Easy, hassle-free set-up process: Veritas SaaS Backup quickly links to the user’s G Suite online accounts. As a cloud hosted solution, no additional investment or on-premises installation of infrastructure or software is required, and users can add and manage new accounts without costly upgrades on technology, infrastructure or administration.
  • Preserve the emails that matter most: Customers can quickly deploy journaling for G Suite to send data to Enterprise Vault.cloud, helping to ensure data is archived and retained within a single, tamper-proof repository. This approach also helps ensure that organizations are protected against data deletion and chain-of-custody violations that could have consequences during legal or regulatory matters.
  • Rapidly discover relevant Gmail content: The Enterprise Vault.cloud solution provides case managers with an intuitive interface for building advanced search strings and uncovering critical case evidence. These capabilities allow legal and compliance teams to collaborate with outside counsel and other third-parties, all within the confines of the Enterprise Vault.cloud experience.
  • Gain a real-time picture of their data: G Suite customers will benefit from the Veritas Information Map application’s immersive visual representation of the data located within Gmail and Google Drive. The insights surfaced through Information Map allow organizations to make data-driven decisions about what data to retain and delete.
  • Improve regulatory readiness: Veritas Information Map’s file analytics arm compliance managers with a complete picture of data ownership and modifications, enabling them to spot risks and initiate remediation actions to help ensure compliance with global data privacy regulations.
