If you use Office 365 for more than email, you likely have a fast-growing amount of important—even mission-critical—data stored in SharePoint and OneDrive. So how are you protecting that data from accidental or malicious deletion?
A lot of organizations start off relying solely on Microsoft’s built-in data retention and restore capabilities. And many of them find out the hard way that those capabilities just aren’t sufficient. Indeed, Microsoft itself recommends that Office 365 users employ a third-party backup solution.
To gain a deeper understanding of how IT professionals around the world are thinking about backing up and securing Office 365 data, in January Barracuda commissioned a survey of more than 1,800 IT decision-makers in the U.S., EMEA, and APAC.
The results are in, and you can learn all about the key takeaways in an upcoming webinar. If you’re actively looking for a better way to back up your data—or if that’s something you didn’t think you needed to worry about—you should make a point of attending.
Barracuda Senior Product Marketing Manager Stasia Hurley and Public Cloud Marketing Director Rich Turner will lead us through the background for the survey, the data collected, and the key findings about your peers’ chief concerns and preferences when it comes to protecting Office 365 data.
Global shift to remote work intensifies data-protection challenges
The information couldn’t be more timely. As pandemic conditions have required a huge increase in remote collaboration, the already rapid growth of Office 365 use has exploded, intensifying data-protection challenges for users—as well as the potential costs of relying on an inadequate backup solution.
At the webinar, there will be lively discussion around these topics:
- Why protecting Office 365 is such a concern
- How relying on Microsoft native retention alone is leaving your business at risk
- Why IT decision makers in countries without strict data privacy and data geo-location requirements are so concerned about these regulations
- Why the evolving landscape of Office 365 should change the way you protect it
By the end of the webinar, you’ll have a much better understanding of the key factors you should consider when choosing a strong backup solution.
The pandemic will end, many workers will return to the office, and life will more or less get back to normal. But the increasing use of Office 365—and the increasing importance of ensuring the data stored there is securely backed up—is very unlikely to slow down. Sign up for this webinar and get the insights and info you need to protect your data in the cloud just as well as (or better than) your data stored on-premises.
