05 Aug My Microsoft 365 data is safe. Right?
Office 365 Backup Is Insufficient!
1 in 3 Businesses Report Losing Data Stored In Cloud-Based Applications like Office 365
Office 365 includes only primitive restore capabilities for lost data, two major issues arise when using their tools: lost data and lost time. Therefore an independent data backup separated from the app itself is necessary to avoid the most common data loss pitfalls.
Here are the top causes of data loss in Office 365
- Data loss due to ransomware: Microsoft recommends 3rd party backup as the only way to recover from data loss associated with ransomware encryption.
- Data loss due to accidental deletion: Files or emails are removed from a system by accident, it could be weeks before staff realise whats missing. Making it almost impossible to restore.
- Time lost in restoring files: Contacting Microsoft Support for assistance with any data loss issue can be time-consuming, and still may not result in restored files
- Data loss due to inactive licenses: As one would expect, an active Office 365 license is required to access data. Unfortunately, when licenses are removed user data is permanently deleted after 30 days, and there is no rollback option.
