BACKGROUND

O4IT is a Colombia-based MSP that was founded in the cloud 12 years ago. Every solution they offer is cloud-based and is provided from three different sites: their private cloud, a public cloud, or a hybrid of cloud and on-premises solutions. The company manages its private cloud through operations in neutral data centers, including the Equinix NAP of the Americas in Miami and the NAP of the Americas in Colombia. O4IT has over 250 employees and serves over 200 customers ranging from SMBs to large enterprises and governments. The company serves all industries but has a particular focus on the banking, agriculture, and insurance sectors, and it also manages a reseller ecosystem that accounts for 20% of its business.

THE CHALLENGE: MINIMIZING BANDWIDTH COSTS WHILE OPTIMIZING RECOVERY TIME

O4IT wanted to offer its customers a backup solution primarily for workstations and servers that stored data in the cloud. However, managing bandwidth costs coming out of customers’ locations and their data centers was a big concern. The company initially used Avamar as a backup solution and then started using Veeam instead, but it still wanted to optimize its costs—both internal and customer charges. O4IT needed a backup solution that provided cloud storage targets with low bandwidth consumption while optimizing customer recovery times.

THE SOLUTION: MUTTII CYBERSECURITY SOLUTIONS

With support for more than 20 virtual, physical, and cloud platforms, as well as hybrid cloud backup capabilities, O4IT determined that Muttii Cybersecurity Solutions was an ideal solution. Additional considerations made O4IT’s decision easy, such as the built-in AI-based anti-ransomware and anti-crypto jacking technology, Muttii Active Protection. With it, O4IT can now manage all of its clients, enabling them to recover individual files, application data, or entire virtual platforms. Furthermore, Muttii Cybersecurity Solutions provides flexibility so the company can restore its customers to the original or completely new destinations while managing data from a centralized location.

According to Cesar Garcia, Product Development Director for O4IT, “When we compare what we can do ourselves with what Muttii Cybersecurity Solutions does, it becomes too complex for us in terms of manpower, internal storage costs, and bandwidth. With Muttii, it’s easy and cost-effective, and the bandwidth consumption from the Muttii agent is very minimal.”

THE BENEFITS: IMMEDIATE PROFITABILITY AND ENHANCED PRODUCT FEATURES

The benefits of partnering with Muttii were immediate. O4IT was able to roll out Muttii Cybersecurity Solutions across its clients in under two months and showed a return on investment within four months. With two Muttii Certified Engineers (ACE) leading the charge, Mr. Garcia notes, “Once we signed with Muttii, we got access to the portal, and it was very easy to create tenants.” He continues, “Our cloud backup solution with Muttii avoids the need to have storage and bandwidth costs in our data centers. We simply provide a management layer on top of Muttii.”

O4IT has also benefited from the enhanced feature set that comes with Muttii Cybersecurity Solutions. Specifically, they are now marketing anti-ransomware capabilities as part of their security portfolio. They have also started offering backup for Office 365. Per Mr. Garcia, “Muttii changed the way we offer cloud backup. The solution is easy to install and manage and has helped us win many new client opportunities.” Currently, the company manages 50 servers and 25 TB of data with Muttii, backing up critical client workloads like Exchange Server, SQL, and MySQL. Even more importantly, O4IT is showing significant growth with Muttii Cybersecurity Solutions. Mr. Garcia estimates that the company will double year-over-year revenues in 2020.
