The simple answer is YES, if your emails, calendars, contacts, files and folders are important to you and your business.
Most people would expect backup being a service included by Microsoft in their Office 365 licensing and it is, but only to a certain extent. That's why even Microsoft is recommending in their Terms & Conditions to use a third-party backup solution to keep your business fully protected from any data loss.
With an Office 365 backup, you can rest assured that your data will be restored fast in case:
- a user accidentally deletes an email, removes an important folder in OneDrive or overwrites a document that is crucial to your business;
- an employee deletes their emails or files before leaving the company;
- data is lost due to a Microsoft outage (these have increased in recent months);
- you've been the victim of a cyber attack (which have massively increased during this COVID pandemic).
We highly recommend you start using a cost-effective backup service right away, whether you need to secure your cloud data to meet standards and regulations or want to prepare your business in case of data loss or a ransomware attack.
What does a cost-effective backup service look like?
