Cloud Backup For Office 365: Keep Your Business Data Safe From All Threats

Companies understand that they need to protect their most important asset, their data. In today’s world that data can be anywhere. It may reside in an companies physical server, in a virtual server in the cloud, or it can even reside in both at the same time. Critical data needs to be protected and available whether it’s hosted locally or in the cloud.

Microsoft Office 365 provides significant advantages to organisations of all sizes, however, this SaaS (software as a service) version of Microsoft’s flagship productivity application, which stores files and data in the cloud, demands the same high level of data backup and recovery functions as its on premise version.

Although Office 365 has been a boon to businesses globally, it is not 100% safe when it comes to data backup & recovery. Research shows that 1 in 3 organisations have lost their data that was stored in the cloud. And almost 64 percent of cloud data loss incidents are due to human error. Humans sometimes delete important files by mistake, overwrite one another’s documents, as well as download viruses accidentally.

Many organisations and individuals believe that their valuable data is automatically protected and available. Whilst cloud-based application vendors do provide a basic level of protection, often keeping data for 30 days, their backups are designed to meet their platform requirements and not those of end users.

Customer data must be:

  • Safe from the most common cause of data loss, user errors
  • Recoverable from data loss due to system errors
  • Available longer than a short 30-day window
  • Protected against internal and external threats
  • Available quickly when needed in the proper format

Users need to make sure that they have these additional levels of protection and accessibility in order to meet basic organisational needs.

To meet this critical need for cloud-based protection, StorageCraft Cloud Backup for Office 365 provides a flexible, easy-to-use solution for the protection, management and recovery of Office 365 data. It is protected, encrypted and made available through an intuitive, web-based interface. Users can quickly recover a file, a folder, or an entire backup quickly and easily in its original format.
