Seems like just about everyone is either using Office 365 or planning to make the switch to this powerful, SaaS environment for their core business functions. Unfortunately, a lot of people make the assumption that since their data is now in the cloud, they don’t need to worry about losing it to ransomware or accidental (or even malicious) deletion by someone in their organization.
If that describes you, then there are two ways in which you can find out what a big mistake it is to rely on native data retention to protect your data. The bad way is to suffer a data loss and then discover that the 90-day retention limit expired … or that you can get your files back, but you still need to rebuild your entire SharePoint architecture from scratch … or that you can’t restore a specific deleted file, but instead have to wipe and restore the entire data store that it was part of.
A closer look at the upcoming webinar
Luckily, there’s also a good way: attend an upcoming webinar—co-presented by Barracuda and Microsoft representatives—about the latest release of Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup. You’ll not only find out exactly why Microsoft recommends that Office 365 customers use a third-party backup solution to protect their data. You’ll also see first-hand how Barracuda product developers have been collaborating with Microsoft to build and refine all the capabilities needed to fully protect the important data you store in Office 365.
In a live demo of the solution, you’ll see for yourself:
- How a completely redesigned user interface puts everything right at your fingertips with Barracuda’s famous ease-of-use, from real-time status visibility to granular permissions policies to powerful search-and-restore capabilities
- How complete cloud integration provides blazing-fast backup windows and unlimited, frictionless scaling
- How easy it is to locate and restore any data, from complete sites to individual files and point-in-time recovery, and to restore a deleted mailbox (for example after an employee leaves) to another user’s account
Plus, you’ll find out how Cloud-to-Cloud Backup ensures total security with end-to-end encryption and granular permissions to control precisely who can access which capabilities.
Look, I get it: Backup isn’t very sexy, and as long as nothing bad happens, it’s easy to just let it slide and rely on the basic features built into Office 365. But one way or the other, you will eventually find out how unwise that is. I recommend the easy way. Save your spot in this webinar today.
