Businesses are increasingly using IT services and it is essential to use a cloud backup that will keep your data safe and protected. Without a safeguard, your company can lose valuable data through a natural disaster or malicious software. Fortunately, data backup and recovery has never been simpler. Here are a few ways that your organization can benefit with the use of cloud services:
No need for onsite hardware or capital expenses. Well-suited to smaller companies that may outgrow storage too quickly.
Storage can be added as needed. Solutions are often on-demand, so you only pay for what you need.
Backup and restore can be initiated from anywhere, using any computer, tablet, or smartphone.
Data can be backed up in the cloud as regularly as 15-minute intervals, minimizing data losses in disaster situations. Small data set recovery time is improved.
Cloud Backup ensures better business continuity for SMBs. Many small businesses are not aware or prepared for the detrimental impacts that data loss can have on their operations. Cloud backup can help mitigate these risks.
Data loss happens in the cloud. People delete data. Mostly accidentally, sometimes intentionally. And there is the ever-present threat of ransomware and other malware.
Microsoft 365 is the number-one cloud-based productivity suite, with powerful tools for communication, collaboration, and content creation. However, it is not designed to quickly and easily restore lost, deleted, or corrupted data to ensure ongoing productivity. M365 provides redundancy, but that only ensures the availability of the present state of the data. It does not back up the data to protect against data loss events.
That means that even in the cloud, data protection is necessary.
There remains ever-present threat of ransomware and other malware attacks. Never lose your data to anyone.
