Do You Know How to Preserve Content and Data from O365?
Here's a snippet from the O365 Microsoft Services Agreement outlining the company's own recommendation to turn to third-party vendors for backup solutions:
"Microsoft is not liable for any disruption or loss you may suffer...You may not be able to retrieve Your Content or Data...We recommend that you regularly backup Your Content and Data...using Third-Party Apps and Services."
Hiring an IT consulting company to backup Office 365 data keeps your data, applications and systems secure. It also simplifies the disaster recovery process.
So why isn't your business using a third-party backup provider?
Microsoft only keeps purged email data for 14 days. This presents a huge issue if important emails are deleted and need to be recovered. That's just one reason to turn to a third-party service to help you recover lost data from backups.
What's at Stake?
So far, we see a very narrow recovery window for your unprotected data and complete handwashing of liability on Microsoft's side as part of their official policy. Still not convinced?
There are other threats to your business as a result of not backing up your Office 365 files, applications and operating systems. What if you can't find an RFP response for an important bid or lose access to executed legal contracts with no physical copies on hand?
