Spanning Release Notes: Spanning Backup for Microsoft 365 Extends Global Data Protection to Canada

We received a large number of requests from our Canadian customers to meet the needs of Canadian organizations, such as government agencies and centers for higher education, that have sovereignty requirements related to business-critical data. These requests pertained to the need for a reliable and user-friendly way to protect their Microsoft 365 data from sync errors and malicious acts such as malware, ransomware and human error.

Sovereignty was a critical factor in data protection since Microsoft operates on a shared model of responsibility. As a vendor, Microsoft provides application availability, redundancy and fault tolerance. However, the responsibility of protecting users and the data they create falls on the shoulders of the organization itself.

Spanning Data Center Comes to the Great White North

You asked, we listened! In addition to our data centers in the US, EU and Asia-Pacific, Spanning has set up a data center in Canada as well. Spanning Backup, known worldwide for excellence in data recovery for Microsoft 365, Google Workspace and Salesforce, has expanded and added a data center in Canada to ensure data sovereignty for our Canadian customers.

How Do Canadian Organizations Benefit?
