Jebsen taps Veeam to protect against disruption, data loss

Jebsen Group, a conglomerate present in Greater China, has selected Veeam Availability Suite and Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 to protect and restore critical data and services in the event of disruption, while also helping Jebsen enhance data security by creating immutable backups that protect against prominent cybersecurity threats like ransomware.

As a result, Jebsen has achieved 50% faster data backups while saving cost and time for IT and business users, and full critical data recovery can now be restored within four hours versus 24 hours under the previous system. 

Backups are now successfully completed every hour while failures are also minimised, allowing the business to operate with peace of mind. This immediately addressed the concerns from a past cyberattack threat which the company was able to mitigate but it then realised better data protection and restore capabilities were needed to ensure optimal business continuity.

“We can’t prevent all cyberattacks, but early detection is key. Our cybersecurity strategy is to identify, contain and restore,” said Brian Chan, IT director at Jebsen Group. 

“Veeam is our answer to getting 100% restoration of our data,” said Chan. “To restore and retain a complete and updated copy of our data, we need to ensure that our backups are successful every single day.”

Joseph Chan, Veaam senior regional director for Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, said they recognise the growing risks with data that companies like Jebsen face as the business world evolves and raises the demands and further adds complexity and threats. 

Jebsen has now a centralised data protection strategy and standardised backup platform across all six business lines, elevating its ability to recover from security threats.  Veeam has specifically addressed the growing threats of increased business activity via the new APIs, on the cloud and the rise of remote working.

Also, Veeam Backup for Office365 ensures extra protection of senior executives’ mailboxes across all offices as native backup is not enough. If mailboxes are attacked by malicious threats like ransomware, the past solution made it difficult to search and recover previous emails with lengthy retrieval times.
