To power modern work and enhance security, Inetum-Realdolmen now offers AvePoint to end-customers

Today, Inetum Group formalized its partnership with AvePoint (NASDAQ: AVPT), the most advanced SaaS and data management platform provider, as an invested partner to deliver its collaboration security solutions to end customers. Launched in Belgium, the Inetum-Realdolmen and AvePoint partnership complements the Microsoft ecosystem with new services in order to help their customers in the field of cloud transition, hybrid working and security issues in the Microsoft Cloud.

This success reaffirms Inetum-Realdolmen's decision to integrate the best players in the digital ecosystem and to rely on AvePoint solutions to support the growth and performance of its end customers.

AvePoint solutions are designed for partners like value added resellers (VARs) and managed service providers (MSPs) to help customers migrate, manage and protect their collaboration systems, including Microsoft 365, Google Workspace and Salesforce. Its technology helps end-users overcome complex transformation, governance and compliance challenges in the cloud.

“In many organisations M365 has become the instrument of choice that results in enormous growth of users and data. This also translates in new challenges for our customers in the field of governance and security, where O365 does not set SLAs for data recovery, for example. Thanks to our partnership with AvePoint we offer our customers solutions to cope with these challenges. What’s more, we enable an intelligent unburdening of the hybrid workplace, a perfect fit in our intelligent workplace offering”, said James De Clercq Sr Solution Manager Partner Alliances at Inetum-Realdolmen.

"Inetum-Realdolmen and AvePoint share the same goal to help organizations and their IT departments prepare tomorrow’s workplace where structured, simple and secure collaboration is of primary importance. " said Tamim Karimi, Sales Director Belgium, Netherlands and Nordics at AvePoint. “Formalizing our partnership by giving Inetum-Realdolmen the status of AvePoint Invested Partner is a logical result after our successful cooperation the last year.”

A customer seeing the results from the partnership is the City of Geraardsbergen. The Covid crisis forced Geraardsbergen to roll out cloud services such as Microsoft Teams and OneDrive in the organization faster than initially anticipated. To make sure Data Governance wouldn’t be at risk, Inetum-Realdolmen stepped in as a partner. 

Besides securing backup and restore – Inetum-Realdolmen also provided the AvePoint governance solution. It ensures that, one step at a time, the IT team is regaining control of the explosive use of Teams and OneDrive. “We can analyze who is doing what and who should have what rights. Once that has been established, we draw up policies, which we then enforce. This ensures that not just anyone can create new Teams or share any data.”  After all, also in Geraardsbergen the employees of the local government will not be returning to the old way of working anytime soon. “Applications like Teams and OneDrive are here to stay,” Jan De Smet, ICT Manager at the City of Geraardsbergen, concludes. “With AvePoint, we can continue to use them while ensuring full security.”

AvePoint continues to innovate its products to reflect the evolving needs of multi-SaaS modern work today. In fact, recently, AvePoint Cloud Backup, one of its digital collaboration security offerings, received differentiated ratings - the highest possible scores – in the Forrester New Wave: SaaS Application Data Protection, Q4 2021 in Microsoft 365, Google Workspace and Salesforce backup criteria. This achievement reaffirms Inetum-Realdolmen’s decision to leverage AvePoint solutions when supporting end-customers.
