Azure Backup as a Service

How Data Backups Are Costing Your Company -

And How To Fix It

Like many organisations, you may be unaware of the hidden cost of backup and storage that is increasing the size of your Azure bill. The true cost may just be higher than you realise. Few have absolute clarity on the availability and reliability of the backups they are paying for.

Unfortunately, it usually takes a major disruption, breach or attack before a business is forced to deal with the reality of their backup infrastructure.

58% of data cannot be recovered.
