Backups for Office365

Back-ups, be they in the cloud or on-premise are a critical component in protecting your business against data loss, be it as a result of hardware failure, staff error or a malicious attack. For more information on back-ups read our earlier post here

Office365 data loss - The reality

Office365 is a powerful product and we are strong advocates for it here at Digatech Systems. The feature set is rich, resulting in a more productive

workforce whilst ensuring data is secure through the complex and effective security measures Microsoft have implemented, for more information on security, see the Microsoft Trust Centre

So, upon investigating the measures they (Microsoft) take, and the enormous investment they make to protect data across their numerous data centres, one would be forgiven for thinking that there is no need to even consider backing up your Office365 data, or, maybe you thought your Office365 data was already backed up by Microsoft? Thinking either of these could prove to be a costly mistake.

But with so much security in-built, why would you need to back-up your Office365 data?

The reason is very simple. Staff.

At the end of the day, your data is your responsibility and Office365 security can't do anything in the face of staff error, or worse, the actions of a disgruntled employee, particularly if the time between deletion and recovery is significant. All it takes is a few clicks and there you have it - loss of data, or even worse, no more data! This could easily  include important folders filled with crucial information on key accounts, personal data etc, hampering an employees ability to work or perhaps crippling a businesses' productivity through loss of contacts. As you can imagine, it's a very real possibility in the workplace.

The solution

Costed on a per user basis, Digatech offers a backup solution which ensures your businesses' Office365 data is secure in the event of accidental or deliberate deletion, providing a fast and easy way to search for deleted files and recover them.
