Many people do not realise that the tools they rely so heavily on each day can still be compromised. Microsoft 365 applications, such as Word and Outlook, hold so much of your vital business and client data. But these applications are still at risk of accidental or malicious data loss. Keep reading to learn how to use cloud backup solutions to protect your data.
What is cloud backup?
Data loss can still happen within the Microsoft 365 environment. And with limited data retention policies in place, deleted documents could be gone within a few days. This can be costly for your business, resulting in downtime and negatively impacting productivity.
You can rely on our cloud backup as a service to reduce the loss of emails, files, and meaningful conversations. onPlatinum’s cloud backup services provide your business with complete coverage for Microsoft 365. This includes Exchange Online, SharePoint, OneDrive, and Microsoft Teams.
Why does my business need managed backups?
You might ask why you need a cloud backup solution when Microsoft 365 gives users 30 days to restore files in OneDrive. Accidental deletion can happen across the entire Microsoft 365 product range, and you will be left scrambling to recover emails, calendar events, or Microsoft Teams messages.
Cloud backup as a service also provides another layer of protection against malicious software, ransomware, and hackers. With many employees using simple, easy to crack passwords, or cybercriminals targeting them with sophisticated social engineering, hackers are gaining increasing access into Microsoft 365 accounts. This gives them access to the entire range of tools you use daily to store essential data. Once inside your accounts, hackers are free to do as they wish – inject malware into your system, corrupt files, or delete all your data. Without cloud backups in place, these files will be complicated to recover.
How can cloud backup benefit your business?
Aside from the increase in security and data recovery within Microsoft 365, cloud backups also provide the following benefits:
- Fully customisable backup and retention policies to suit your business needs, beyond the standard 30 days that Microsoft offers.
- Secure backups are held offsite, stored safely away from your business location, and backed up multiple times throughout the day to keep up with your users.
- Many Australian businesses have compliance requirements to securely store and protect personal client information. You can add an additional layer of protection to your 365 with secure backups to minimise the risk to your business and clients.
- Cloud backups are fully automated, so users do not risk forgetting to create manual backups.
