SECURING O365 CRITICAL DATA
Microsoft Office365 is a highly resilient cloud-based platform that provides you with mailbox, shared folders (OneDrive &
SharePoint) and access to the full suite of Microsoft Office applications. Its flexibility, consumption model and ease of use has made it the most commonly used workforce productivity platform and a cornerstone of how people work.
For end users, it contains their email history and a multitude of documents and data files that they are sharing with others. For businesses, it has become a critical data repository, holding transaction and communication trails and essential operational data items.
The common misconception is that the geo-resilience of O365 means that your data is safe. This is not true; O365 provides you with a high-availability application but does not back-up your business- critical data held within this platform.
By taking the prudent step of implementing third party back-up, to ensure your O365 environment is meticulously backed-up is not just protecting you from a major infrastructure failure, but a whole range of possibilities that places your data at including accidental deletion, malicious attack or retention policy gaps.
