Are you backing up your data in Microsoft 365? And did you know that 80 percent of untargeted attacks are due to security vulnerabilities in Office 365 products?
In fact, there are good and even compelling reasons to back up Microsoft 365 off-site if you want to keep your data safe.
Microsoft 365 itself does not back up data or backs it up to a very limited extent: OneDrive, for example, can be reset for up to 30 days if all default settings are used, after which all data is irretrievably deleted.
Further vulnerabilities in your security architecture that are beyond your control are inherent to running Microsoft 365 in today's often very heterogeneous environments. Bring your own device (BYOD) reduces control over the patch status and access control. Used versions of the devices are often out of date so they offer a gateway to attack. These are not the only reasons why Microsoft 365 is a popular target for cybercriminals. (Source: IT threat evolution in Q3 2022)
Microsoft's Shared Responsibility Model is another reason for a well thought-out backup strategy: Backup/eDiscovery functionalities are limited, which means that configuration and monitoring are your responsibility.
Microsoft 365 offers its customers a software-as-a-service (SaaS) plan. As such, users themselves are fully responsible for backing up the data they process in Microsoft 365.
Here you can see the responsibilities at a glance:
Do you have a secure backup solution, a contingency plan and as well an exit strategy just in case? Do you know what would happen if Microsoft Azure is disrupted or unavailable?
What you need is a backup that is as complete as possible to recover your data - not necessarily in the event of a half-day outage, but in the event of major disruptions or attacks, you should ensure data availability.
This is costly, but this way you are covered. Otherwise, you can do no more than call the Microsoft hotline and wait until you can be helped there among millions of subscribers to Microsoft services. This is where our Managed Service comes in with a one-to-one, German-speaking service.
Backup is also worthwhile when employees leave, as their accounts are deleted from Microsoft 365 when subscriptions end for cost reasons. At that point, all of that employee's data is irretrievably gone.
Plus, you don't risk a media disruption without an external backup. Maintaining end-to-end data flows with a smart backup solution minimizes your business risk.
