Like millions of businesses all over the world, you have moved to Office 365 and that’s GREAT!
- You have increased your productivity
- You have reduced your costs
- Your teams have access to data wherever they are
- Greater flexibility has made your employees more engaged and motivated
It’s all good …… or is it?
“Well, it’s in the Cloud, so it must be backed up, right?”
Here are the top 5 causes of data loss in the cloud:
1. The Human Factor.
You’ve been working on one of your key files – for example: Projected Sales. You’ve added names, changed contact details, added figures and sorted the data and then you realise you need to start over. You spontaneously hit SAVE instead of CANCEL. With that sinking feeling you realise that you have overwritten the file thereby erasing hours (if not days) of work.
What do you do – contact Microsoft? They will simply tell you that they cannot go back in time and restore the previous version!
With the MiBackup Cloud solution, you can recover the original file in a matter of minutes.
2. The Hackers.
Cyber crime is on the rise. If you have not had an attack or at least an attempt, then it’s probably only a matter of time. Kaspersky report that the number of CryptoLocker attacks double from 2014 – 2015 and continues to rise. So what happens when you open that email and click on the link which activates a virus? Suddenly your files are encrypted and you have a ransom demand.
What do you do – contact email Microsoft? They will tell you that there is no guarantee they can recover all (or any) of the files and if they can it may take some time (hours/days/weeks).
With the MiBackup cloud solution, you can recover your files in a matter of minutes.
3. The Employee who leaves.
This will happen at some point. An employee leaves the company and you deactivate their Office 365 account. However, you need to retrieve an email, an Excel sheet or a presentation from their account.
What do you do – contact Microsoft? They will tell you that the employee’s files were deleted 30 days from the day they deactivated the Office 365 account and are simply not retrievable.
With the MiBackup cloud solution, you will be able to recover all the files (including emails) in a matter of minutes.
4. The Employee gone “rogue”
You trust your employees with your data and 99% of the time your trust is well placed. Sometimes, however, employees just go rogue! After they have left the company, you discover they have deleted a chunk of your data.
What do you do – contact Microsoft? They will again tell you that there is not guarantee they can recover all (or any) of the files and if they can it may take some time (hours/days/weeks).
With the MiBackup cloud solution, you can easily recover any data that has been maliciously deleted.
5. The Mis-hAPP
Apps are great – they make life so much easier. We all use apps (your employees use them). Sometimes however, they start misbehaving and act in an unpredictable way. Unsurprisingly, the fifth most popular cause of data loss in the Cloud is data being overwritten by third party software. If this sounds unlikely, then remember, if it happened to Steve Wozniak, Apple Co-Founder, then it can probably happen to you!
What do you do – contact Microsoft? Once again Microsoft will tell you that there is no guarantee they can recover all (or any) of the files and if they can it may take some time (hours/days/weeks).
With the MiBackup cloud solution, you can recover any data that has been overwritten (including calendars).
If your employees (including you) never make mistakes; if your security is 100% buttoned up and nothing is getting in; if your employees never leave; if you have never had (and never will have) a disgruntled employee and your Apps will never do anything they are not supposed to do – then you do not need to back up our Office 365.
However, if you are like the rest of us, then you NEED MiBackup for Office 365.
