As a result of the ever-growing popularity of cloud-based productivity services such as Microsoft Office 365, the need for a reliable backup solution is paramount, especially for schools and school districts who contain plenty of sensitive information that would be devastating to lose.

Since educational data is often unprotected, sometimes unfortunately due to budgetary restraints, and this data often contains sensitive data such as social security numbers, birthdays, etc., it makes these institutions easy targets for cybercriminals, which is why IDrive recognized the need for them to have an affordable data backup option.

Some examples of the critical data that schools need to protect include:

  • Staff and teacher information
  • Student and parent information
  • Payroll Data
  • Grade books and lesson plans
  • Details on individual students needs

With IDrive’s affordable Microsoft Office 365 Backup solution, educational institutions can backup their entire Microsoft Office Suite, eliminating the risks involved with accidental deletion, ransomware attacks, or service outages.

IDrive’s user-friendly, intuitive interface makes it easy for school IT administrators to manage and restore their backups, letting them quickly recover data whenever necessary. Users have full comprehensive control over their backups through a centralized web console, helping them to migrate, export, download, and perform restores with ease.

  • Seamless retention – retains previous versions of the backed up data as point-in-time snapshots, enabling users to run point-in-time restores of their data to the exact state it was in at the time of the backup.
  • Granular recovery – search and recover specific files, entire folders, images, videos, emails, and even contacts and calendars.
