Microsoft Cloud services have quickly become a market leader for organizations of any size. Office 365 boasts more than 60 million commercial customers, providing web-based applications which are available when needed.

There is no doubt that Microsoft is doing a lot to ensure files and documents are always accessible and backed up. Microsoft prides itself on its 99.9 percent service uptime with regular backups. The company replicates data between data centers and stores it in completely redundant environments with backup and restore capabilities. Long story short, if something happens to one of Microsoft’s data centers, your data is protected. So, does that mean your data is safe enough from any type of loss? The answer is “No, it might not be.”

Why you need your own O365 Backup

Microsoft protects O365 users from physical infrastructure failure with secure backup in Microsoft’s cloud, alleviating a burden traditional IT has faced. However, its backup does not protect you against:

  • Virus or ransomware damage
  • End-user deletion
  • Operational errors such as accidental data overwrite
  • Hacker deletion
  • Lost data due to a cancelled account subscription
  • Malicious activity
  • Misbehaving application workflows
  • Hard disk or storage damage
  • Software corruption

Unrecoverable data has real financial implications, and it may also impact consumer confidence and lead to serious reputational damage. The cost of business lost to competitors as a result of downtime can be considerable, and only understood once it’s too late.

Backupify Sharepoint Backup is here

Backupify for O365 backs up your calendar, mail, OneDrive, and now SharePoint. SharePoint is the popular web-accessed collaboration and document management platform widely used by companies to edit, share, store and collaborate on critical documents across all platforms.
