Using OneDrive for secure and automated data backups

Using OneDrive for secure and automated data backups

Microsoft 365 suite of products equips you with many things including the ability to share content and store data in the cloud. But data can be lost even in the cloud, as a result of an accident, a cyber-security incident, or human error. So, is OneDrive safe for backups?

Parablu makes your OneDrive safe to use as a backup destination. Parablu’s award-winning endpoint backup solution – BluVault with a  patented technology integration helps you make the most of your subscriptions to Microsoft 365 by utilizing OneDrive for backup storage or your backup repository. Using Parablu, you enforce a reliable and secure endpoint backup process, enterprise-wide and across geographies, ensuring that the data associated with all your user endpoints are always available and easily restorable.

BluVault Key Features

No additional cloud storage needed

BluVault can leverage your existing OneDrive for Business storage subscriptions for all your endpoint data backups. Endpoint backup to OneDrive means no additional investment in storage infrastructure with a secure backup solution on cloud. Secure and automated data backups with zero storage cost.

Overcome OneDrive ’s native limitations

OneDrive was designed to be a file sync solution – not a backup. BluVault can utilize the OneDrive storage allocations you have as a centrally addressable set of storage units for all your endpoint backups while eliminating limitations inherent with the OneDrive sync software. Restrictions like file/folder sizes, special characters, upload/download limits among several others – can be a thing of the past.

Backup any file or folder

BluVault makes secondary copies of files to OneDrive, no matter where they live on the endpoint – not just the few folders that OneDrive sync supports. Specify folders to exclude or include during backups and even locked files such as PST files are backed up seamlessly.

Policy-based management

BluVault enables back up to OneDrive and offers a wide array of configurability via its backup policies. Centralized, policy-based control makes, user management, backup scheduling, file/folder selections (or exclusions) a cinch.

Enterprise audit trail

All critical touchpoints on the system get recorded, time-stamped and audited automatically. BluVault’s centralized web console offers a one-stop view through a dashboard and ready, schedulable reports that cover granular details of all activity.

The Parablu Advantage

Zero storage cost

Parablu’s patented integration with OneDrive for Business means that you can accomplish backups without moving the needle on your storage costs. This could mean as much as 70% savings on Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) when using BluVault as opposed to any other backup solution.

Full, Incremental, and Partial File Incremental backup

BluVault takes an initial full backup and only backups up incrementally changed data subsequently. Files bigger than a certain threshold are further processed using our Partial File Incremental backup algorithm which only transmits the changed portions of such files (like PSTs).

End-to-End Encryption

BluVault applies industrial-strength encryption on backup data streams, both during transit and at rest. With end-to-end encryption, you can be assured that your data is safe wherever it’s stored and all along the way.

Zero-Knowledge Privacy

BluVault is built on the tenet of Zero-Knowledge Privacy which is designed to ensure that your data can be accessed by you and no one else – not the cloud vendor, not Parablu, not a regulatory authority, or a foreign government. Only you.

Zero-Trust Security

BluVault is designed to fit seamlessly into your Zero Trust Security model. All data flows on secure channels, using TLS 1.2 with strong ciphers. We integrate with Identity Managers like Azure Active Directory and Okta, augmented with multi-factor authentication protection. Parablu’s solutions embody the principle of least privilege at every level of our stack.

BluKrypt™ Assurance

BluVault is powered by BluKrypt™, our proprietary and patented privacy enhancement technology. This enables a secure storage container in which all backup data is shredded, encrypted, and versioned. It is an unbelievably high bar to scale for a potential attacker and is designed to provide our customers with unparalleled data security.
