You may think cloud software, like Microsoft Office 365, offers excellent options for backing up data. But is that true? The reality is, the cloud comes with limited safety and recovery options.
Retention doesn’t equal long-term safety
The limited, short-term backup options provided by cloud software is called retention. Retention usually covers a limited, short-term period like 90 days.
To restore data or lost emails, each item needs to be restored file by file or email by email. Consequently, retention doesn’t provide the sort of protection your business needs if there is a service outage, crypto attack, ransom attack or user errors such as accidental deletion of multiple files.
Hackers are getting smarter
While it may feel like standard retention services will be enough, they’re not. Hackers are getting smarter and more innovative in identifying ways to get into your system and surprisingly, SME businesses are an easy target in their eyes. They can cause untold damage by stealing data, passwords and locking you out of your system. As a consequence, restoring data file-by-file isn’t an effective option.
Help is at hand
There’s an affordable solution that ensures you have long-term backup and it’s called AvePoint Cloud Backup.
AvePoint Cloud Backup is a cloud-to-cloud backup system for everything you need in Microsoft Office 365. It offers unlimited storage (on your cloud, a third party vendor, or theirs) and can store and restore backups that go back years.
Backups are run 4 times a day and can be restored from any point in time. Restorations can be as granular as finding specific files, conversations, projects, tasks, Groups, Teams, Planner and sites, or large restores of entire services. This makes continuity planning for your business’ IT system easier than ever.
