Dropsuite, a leading cloud data backup and archiving platform, announced its new GovCloud solution enabling Microsoft 365 public sector users to easily backup and restore their data in the cloud. Dropsuite’s GovCloud allows US-based partners to safeguard their government and public sector clients’ data and comply with FedRAMP moderate data security requirements.
Dropsuite's M365 backup and archiving solutions can now be stored in Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud (US), ensuring your data is stored in a separate cloud with heightened security. This creates critical redundancy and protects your data from accidental deletion, system crashes, cyber-attacks, and other causes of data loss. This solution bridges M365 Government plans (for organizations requiring higher security and compliance features hosted in a government-only cloud environment) and AWS GovCloud (US) (for US government and public sector customers to architect secure cloud environments that meet those strict security and compliance requirements).
Dropsuite's Chief Product Officer, Mark Kirstein says, "Our partners know Dropsuite's commitment to secure, quality backup products, and we have brought the same discipline and partner input to our GovCloud offering. We are thrilled to provide our MSP partners and their clients with this FedRAMP moderate compliant solution that boasts the same easy-to-use technology they already know and love."
Dropsuite’s GovCloud is built upon its award-winning backup and archiving technology used by over a million users. It provides essential features for most government organizations and contractors, including automated incremental backup, one-click data restore, and regulatory-compliant email archiving features. Managed Service Provider (MSP) partners can administer solutions for their clients from a single-pane-of-glass interface, allowing the implementation of custom retention rules, third-party auditor access roles, and internal user roles and permissions. Dropsuite’s easy-to-use platform has been named Gold Medalist in SoftwareReviews’ Email Backup Solutions Awards three years in a row.
Key benefits of using Dropsuite’s GovCloud solution:
Uphold FedRAMP moderate requirements and compliance.
Safeguard sensitive data in a separate and secure government-only cloud environment.
Ensure data preservation, integrity, security, traceability, searchability, scale, and cost-effectiveness.
Secure each record from being modified, overwritten, or deleted until the retention period has expired, including a click box that activates write-once-read-many (WORM) storage.
Swift setup enables users to run backups in a matter of minutes upon account creation.
Maintain peace of mind and know exactly what you are paying for with transparent, upfront pricing.
Dropsuite is an award-winning cloud software platform enabling businesses and organizations globally to easily backup, recover and protect their important business information.
