3 Reasons Why Backing Up Office 365 is Critical

Office 365 provides application availability and uptime to ensure your users never skip a beat, but an Office 365 backup (not included in your Office 365 subscription) can protect you against many other common use cases.  It’s imperative that you know your IT team is in control and never loses access to your business-critical data.  Here are three major reasons to think about:

REASON 1

Accidentally deleted DATA is NOT backed up and lost forever

The native recycle bins and version histories included in Office 365 can only protect you from data loss in a limited way, which can turn a simple recovery into a big problem after Office 365 has geo-redundantly deleted the data.  Once this happens, it is unrecoverable, unless there is a backup solution in place.

REASON 2

Security breaches from inside your organization are very common

Organizations fall victim to threats posed by their very own employees, both intentionally and unintentionally.  A certain level of education is needed to combat these issues, but human error and malice will always pose a threat without proper safeguards like a backup in place. 

REASON 3

Cyber attacks can happen to ANY business, regardless of size

Did you know almost 50% of small businesses have experienced a cyber attack?  Malware and viruses, like ransomware, are capable of doing serious damage to your organization. External threats can sneak in through emails and attachments and with regular backups these attacks will prevent the situation from getting out of hand.
