Microsoft Office 365 – Are You Backed Up?

More organisations are using cloud services than ever before. But not all of them are aware of exactly what backups they do and do not provide or what their responsibility is when storing data in the cloud.

Think you are backed up by Microsoft? Think again

Those of you already using Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) will know how useful it is, streamlining both your internal and external communications through Exchange Online and Teams, and offering an excellent co-working space through its SharePoint cloud storage facility. But did you know that by default, Microsoft 365 is not backed up to the level that most businesses would require? 

Who’s responsibility is it to back up your data?

Ultimately, it is your responsibility – not Microsoft’s – to safeguard your data whether it is on your hard drive or stored in a cloud environment. 

We are here to help
Luckily, Carden IT offer a variety of flexible Microsoft 365 backup solutions, meaning that you can keep your email data for as long as you need it, and tailor your backups to meet the various compliance requirements of your organisation and industry. Ensuring the constant availability of data is also key to meeting the requirements of many key compliance standards. 

How much does backing up data cost?
