MICROSOFT 365 IS A DATA LOSS DISASTER WAITING TO HAPPEN…
Since the pandemic, more and more businesses are relying on Microsoft 365 for everyday business use. If your business relies on Microsoft 365, you can expect reliable access to its applications with very high uptime. But many IT professionals are labouring under a dangerous
misconception: that Microsoft provides fully-fledged data protection and long-term data retention for Microsoft 365.
The reality is that the emails, attachments, and shared files stored in Microsoft 365 are not protected from the most common and serious data loss issues, ranging from simple accidental deletions to sophisticated malware attacks. Thus, for many organisations, Microsoft 365 represents a major data protection gap – an unhappy surprise waiting to happen. You may be surprised to learn that Microsoft provides very few features to help restore lost, destroyed or damaged Microsoft 365 data, with nowhere near the backup functionality or robustness with which most businesses expect when they protect their other critical applications.
This whitepaper outlines several easy-to-miss limitations of Microsoft’s data protection capabilities and examines how you can address those shortcomings to ensure that your business can quickly recover from the many data loss issues to which Microsoft 365 is vulnerable.
