Cloud-to-Cloud Backup Service for Office 365 & G Suite
If you use Microsoft Office 365 or another Cloud service provider (like Google’s G Suite), you may think you don’t need to do any further backup of your data. At MBM, we advise all our customers that the Cloud is a safe way to store and access your data, but even these remote servers aren’t completely 100% fool proof.
With Office 365, for example, Microsoft guarantee 90% of data against a number of specific threats. But if we look at the top causes of data loss in the Cloud, there could be an issue with Microsoft’s response. And this could be the same for other Cloud providers.
Cause 1: Human Error
A member of staff overwrites a file.
Cause 2: Hackers
A data file becomes encrypted by a hacker.
Cause 3: Rogue Employee
An employee deletes data files.
Cause 4: System Glitches
Your data is overwritten by third party software or there are problems with data syncing/service crashes and you lose your data.
Cause 5: Employee Account Deactivated
The employee’s ‘seat’ is deactivated, but you need to access one of their files.
Whilst Microsoft’s Service Level Agreement is 99.9% guaranteed up-time, they also state there is no guarantee they can recover all (or any) of the files and, if they can, it may take some time. It is therefore good business practice to have an independent backup of your company’s data.
What Should You Do?
For those who operate in sectors where you will need to comply with EU Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) which come into force on 25 May 2018, you already understand the value or your data and that it needs to be backed up and easily accessible.
For other businesses, the typical causes described above, and cyber crime in particular, are a growing threat for us all and therefore we recommend you ensure your data is fully protected against these internal and external threats.
