OTC Organics opts for protection of mail and documents with hallo, Microsoft 365 Backup

OTC Organics in Dronten is active worldwide as a wholesaler in organic fruits and vegetables. Customers can mainly be found in Europe, North America and the Middle East. The growers who supply the products come from North and South America, Europe, Africa, China and Australia/New Zealand. OTC has with their view of all import and export of the products also a branch in the Westland, near Rotterdam.


For the support of all business processes, OTC is to a large extent depends on Office 365. "We switched to Office 365 in 2018, now Microsoft 365", says Joryn Leijssenaar, ICT manager at OTC. OTC already works in the field of ICT years together with IT partner hallo, in Zeewolde. By switching to the public Microsoft's cloud also had OTC to redefine how it wants from now on dealing with backups. Unlike many users of Microsoft 365 often thinking, an end user is responsible for creating backups. Microsoft stores data in its public cloud but for a limited period. Without proper backup facilities, the risks are high. For example, a employee accidentally deletes a file or deletes an organization accidentally a user, including all data that at any given time no longer exists can be restored.

"We switched to Office 365, now Microsoft 365"

OTC was mainly looking for the certainty that an e-mail or file in SharePoint at all time would be retrievable, if necessary. The company asked for its permanent IT partner hallo, to think along about a solution. "hallo, has been active for years as external system administrator for our cloud environment, workplaces and databases", says Leijssenaar. hallo, suggested to protect all Microsoft 365 data deploy the Back-IT 365 solution from cloud distributor Uniserver.

According to Leijssenaar, the main advantage for OTC of this step is double: "We now know for sure that all our mails and files are backed up safely and can be quickly restored, if necessary. Also, we don't have one look back more. If you make backups yourself, this must be done properly and you should also regularly test whether a restore is possible. we don't have to worry about that. We now have the certainty of well protected and easy to recover data."
