Microsoft M365 Backup 1

Unexpected data loss is one of the biggest risks to your business. Data can be lost through human error, system failure or cyberattacks, so protecting your business files and mail through a sufficient backup solution is critical.

Having a robust backup strategy is one of the most important elements of protecting your business against data loss. You may already have desktop backups in place, but what about files that are not stored on your desktop? Have you considered the consequences of losing files that have been saved other locations?

Did you know that Microsoft 365 does not provide a backup for data loss?

For many businesses, Microsoft 365 is an integral platform for creating, maintaining and storing files, sending and receiving emails and enabling online collaboration. In the event of a disaster striking, having the right backup policy could save your business significant money and inconvenience.

A common mistake that businesses make is assuming that Microsoft provides a backup for their productivity apps such as OneDrive, Exchange and Teams. However, what Microsoft actually provides is a data retention service which in most cases only covers 14-30 days of data retention.

Data retention only means that the data will be retained for a specified amount of time, and once the retention date in the agreement has passed, Microsoft will not retrieve data.

Microsoft recommends users arrange their own backup

Microsoft recommends that M365 users arrange their own backup of content to provide them with the level of data backup required in the event of everyday data loss scenarios. With increasing numbers of malicious attacks and the common problem of human error to contend with, businesses must develop an effective backup policy as part of their disaster recovery strategy.

If your business uses OneDrive, Sharepoint, Teams, Exchange and any of the other 365 apps, a dedicated backup for your Microsoft content is the best solution for data loss prevention.

The longer that your data is unavailable, the more disruption and cost to your business. This is why it is so important to choose backup solutions that offer fast and simple file recovery.
