Introducing Direct-to-Cloud (D2C)

D2C is here!

Axcient x360Recover Direct-to-Cloud (D2C) is now Generally Available (GA) in production.

Direct-to-Cloud provides chain-free, image-based backup and disaster recovery for end user desktops and laptops, as well as client servers and workstations - without the expense of a local appliance.

Learn more about Direct-to-Cloud

With the release of x360Recover 10.4.0, the agent on your protected endpoints will now be able to send backups directly to the Cloud vault - delivering backup previously available only on an appliance.

Have you set up MFA on the x360 Portal yet?

Better remote access (allowing more employees to work from anywhere, anytime) makes MFA critical to data security.

MFA on the x360 Portal is easy to configure (and is required after 10.31.20.)
Learn the details at the MFA FAQ

Axcient x360Cloud (CloudFinder)

Reminder: x360Cloud now uses OAuth tokens (instead of Global Admin credentials) for authorization in Microsoft 365. If you still need to set up the required permissions, see how-to details for x360Cloud or follow these steps for Legacy CloudFinder.

New features: During October, we introduced new report filters, more information in the Audit Logs, and improved visibility into backup issues.
