For more than 20 years, Webair has provided best-in-class managed hosting services. The company creates customized, next-generation solutions for the most complex infrastructures.
The most complex infrastructures belong to some of the largest organizations in the world such as health care providers, governments and multinational e-commerce companies. Each one faces the same challenge. If data isn’t available, they can’t run their businesses, comply with industry regulations and protect themselves from cyber crime.
Enterprises rely on Webair for business continuity, and Webair relies on Veeam to power the managed services that protect data, including backup as a service (BaaS) for Microsoft Office 365, disaster recovery as a service (DRaas) and ransomware recovery as a service (RRaaS).
“Veeam has helped us save the day several times for customers,” said Michael Ohayon, Chief Operating Officer at Webair. “They’ve faced serious and potentially dangerous situations, but Veeam has helped us protect their business and their brand.”
Veeam keeps data available and Webair keeps it secure so enterprises can focus on their business, comply with industry regulations and remain protected against cyber crime.
Webair takes complete ownership and accountability for the IT infrastructures of many of the largest health care organizations, enabling medical providers to concentrate on improving patient care while Webair mitigates security risks. Veeam keeps health care data available, and Webair makes sure it’s protected and compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) regulations.
One of Webair’s health care customers is a large pharmaceutical company. Microsoft Office 365 is critical to the company’s core operation, so when an employee accidentally deleted a SharePoint file 30 minutes before a presentation to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for a clinical drug trial, Webair came to the rescue.
Veeam powers Webair’s BaaS solution for Microsoft Office 365, enabling Webair to restore the SharePoint file in minutes. The presentation proceeded on schedule, and the FDA approved the clinical drug trial, sparing the company a lengthy and costly delay in business.
Webair restores data all the time, and some of those restores save customers from breaking laws and paying fines. Even government employers are not immune from these regulations. Federal and state laws require them to pay employees at regular, set times.
“The government’s on-premise payroll server failed on a Thursday afternoon, right before payroll was to be processed for direct deposit into employees’ bank accounts,” Ohayon said. “If they failed to process payroll by the close of business that day, they could have faced thousands of dollars in fines, not to mention very angry employees. We restored the server from our cloud within minutes, and payroll was processed on time.”
Webair also helps governments protect against cyber crime. Mounting ransomware attacks on government agencies have put everyone on high alert. Veeam-powered RRaaS helps protect data from being stolen and ransomed.
U.S. governments aren’t the only entities safeguarding the digital privacy and security of their citizens. In the European Union, custody of personal data for an individual is a fundamental right, and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) protects that right. Webair’s e-commerce customers sell merchandise globally, so Webair helps them maintain compliance with GDPR, as well as the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) in the United States. If e-commerce companies fail to maintain compliance, they risk massive fines.
Webair also protects organizations’ data for intelligent data management, which helps them understand their customers better, accelerate business innovation and reduce costs.
“Enterprises can’t leverage their data for business growth unless they can rely on it, and that’s where Veeam is key,” Ohayon said. “Veeam helps us ensure data is always available.”
Ohayon said another key feature of Veeam is scalability.
“Veeam helps us protect petabytes of data on several thousand virtual machines, and those numbers will increase significantly as our customers’ data grows,” he said. “We’re thankful to have Veeam on our side.”
Webair delivers agile, reliable cloud and managed infrastructure solutions through its highly secure, enterprise-grade network of data centers in New York, Los Angeles, Montreal, Amsterdam and Asia Pacific. Founded in 1996 and headquartered in New York, Webair serves customers in more than 30 countries.
Webair is a trusted technology partner to some of the largest organizations in the world. Each one faces the same challenge: If their data isn’t available, they can’t run their businesses, comply with industry regulations and protect themselves from cyber crime.
