Protect your school from ransomware

Centrally view all of your backups directly from the cloud. Your data is encrypted at all times and cannot be compromised. Should your servers become a victim of a cyber-attack, you can rest assured your backups won’t be.

Trust the most trusted

Trust the most trusted

Microsoft’s cloud offers the most comprehensive compliance coverage with 50 compliance statements. Azure has been recognised as the most trusted cloud for governmental institutions.

School Data Protection

Advanced security Data encryption whitepaper

Your data is encrypted on your servers and desktops using AES 256 bit encryption before it leaves your school and is then transferred using 256-bit SSL communication (TLS v1.2)

Your data remains encrypted whilst backing up, at rest and during restore. You set the encryption and it can never be captured in transit.

UK schools will have their data stored in the UK facilities by default.

Our software also allows you to back up your servers and desktops to local media and third party clouds such as Amazon, Google, Microsoft and your own SFTP. This gives you extra peace-of-mind knowing your data is stored safely online and independently from us should you need a safe harbour.

Microsoft Cloud

100% data durability with data stored on 3 systems and unlimited retention

Your data is sent direct from your school to the Microsoft cloud in the UK. It doesn’t go to a 3rd party’s data centre where it can be read.

Your backed-up data is stored on a minimum of 3 systems at any one time. Microsoft replicates your data three times within a storage scale unit. Multiple data centre replication is also an option.

You are in charge of your retention periods which can be set from 1 day to infinity.

We provide a single pane-of-glass for all of your backup sets so you can see everything in one place without the need to trawl through emails every morning.

We are dedicated to supporting you and can be contacted 7 days a week. If we can’t fix your problem in one or 2 emails, we will ask to look at your system using Teamviewer or RDP.

Online Backup

Not just online backups

We have modules to back up Windows server, VMware, Hyper V, Exchange (server and mailbox), Office 365 email, MS SQL, MySQL, System State, Bare Metal, MAC, Windows desktops and more.

Don’t want to store your data with us? No problem, you can use our platform for local backups and only pay for the software charge. If you have your own cloud storage, file sharing service or FTP storage, you can store your data there and use our platform to manage it all.

Reduce Cost

Pay for only the data you store

Our Pro service is priced at £0.05 per GB with 20GB free.

Our Lite service can be purchased for as little as £0.01 per GB. Both use Ahsay’s software at their core and Microsoft’s cloud for storage.

No customer is on a contract and what you see is what you get. Support and remote installations are all free.

We are launching a software only version of our service in September 2017 which will allow you to store your backups wherever you like and still manage them from our service.

Centrally view all of your education backups directly with our online cloud computing portal. Your data is encrypted at all times and cannot be compromised. Should your servers be a victim of a cyber-attack, you can rest assured your backups won’t be.

No quotas, minimum contracts or hidden charges on the Pro platform.

Pay only for the storage and licenses you use and nothing else.

If you want even lower pricing for basic file system backups and don’t mind paying up-front for 12 months, our Lite backup service will also store your data on Microsoft’s cloud in the UK for as low as £0.01 per GB.
