Protect all data on Mac devices

C2 Backup for Microsoft 365 uses incremental backup technology that uploads only changed data blocks after the initial backup, both saving time and reducing the storage capacity used.

Mac and Microsoft 365 backup support is now available for all new and existing C2 Backup users. For more features and pricing, see the overview.

The modern workplace often struggles with credential management for employees due to the lack of support for multiple device types and a variety of cloud services from the legacy directory services.
