Microsoft Office 365

DID YOU KNOW THAT MICROSOFT OFFICE 365 DOES NOT BACKUP YOUR DATA?

Microsoft Office 365


Businesses are embracing Microsoft Office 365, which is transforming the way organisations work. By being flexible and accessible it can drive efficiency, mobilise workforces and greatly increase the potential for a business to work collaboratively. Added to this, the subscription price model allows organisation to select and pay for only the functions they need.

However, most companies are not aware of one huge fact – that Microsoft Office 365 does not backup your data. Whilst Microsoft provide a robust service availability strategy, this only protects against hardware failure at their end. It does not protect against user error or attacks at your end.

Consider this - a vast majority of data loss happens at the user end of the organisation. Accidental deletion or overwriting of information, malicious deletion of data by a disgruntled employee, corruption whilst syncing a file and cyber-attack can all result in data being lost. Because Microsoft Office 365 cannot distinguish between - for example - a malicious employee deleting critical files and another employee deleting unneeded items, once that information is gone, very little can be done to get it back.

Such data loss can be very costly to businesses, as it can cause disruption to business activity, loss of time due to information having to be re-typed and reputation can be damaged. On top of this, many organisations fall under strict information retention regulations, therefore, document deletion would result in failure to comply. All of these things ultimately effects the bottom line and can impact on the future success of the business.
That is why it is absolutely essential that organisations do not rely on Microsoft Office 365 for Data Backup and that a third party backup solution is at the very least considered when Office 365 is implemented.
