Microsoft Office 365

Adoption is growing, but many businesses are not protected from data loss in the cloud

Since it's launch in 2011, business both large and small have been steadily adopting Microsoft Office 365, with an estimated 50,000 small business added as Office 365 customers each month. Some of these business think they don't need backup since Office 365 runs in the Microsoft Azure cloud. But data loss can and does occur in the cloud. And even if the data is lost, only stuck in a Microsoft archive somewhere, restoring it can take days. Recovery doesn't have to be this hard. Unitrends offers automatic cloud backup for Office 365.
 

Causes of Data Loss in the Cloud

Office 365 and the Cloud do not prevent data loss due to human action. 75% of data loss is due to people deleting content accidentally or intentionally1, and that’s not the only threat. Another study2 found that 32% of the companies surveyed had experienced data loss from:

  • User Error (64%)
  • Hackers (13%)
  • Closing an Account (10%)
  • Malicious Deletion (10%)
  • Third Party Software (7%)
 

Users Can Permanently Delete Items

Deleted items in Office 365 may be unrecoverable before anyone realizes the needed files are missing. For example, deleted email is permanently removed after 14 days default, 30 days maximum. Expanded Office 365 licenses and features can offer longer retention, but don’t provide a fast, easy way to restore content exactly as it was and where it was so your employees can get back on track quickly.

How to Back Up Office 365

Exchange, SharePoint, and OneDrive are the applications your business relies on every day. But without a smart backup plan, finding and restoring lost Office 365 data can take hours, days, or even longer.
