Do you save your critical data in the Microsoft Cloud through Office 365 and OneDrive?

If you answered yes to the above question, there is a very important step you should be taking as it applies to the following issues:
Accidental deletion of data by employees
Malicious deletion of data by employees
Accidental overwriting of data
Lost data due to cancelled licenses
Data damage/loss due to malware or ransomware attack
Microsoft clearly states in their user agreement related to availability of services that, “We [Microsoft] strive[s] to keep the Services up and running; however, all online services suffer occasional disruptions and outages, and Microsoft is not liable for any disruption or loss you may suffer as a result. In the event of an outage, you may not be able to retrieve Your Content or Data that you’ve stored. We recommend that you regularly backup Your Content and Data that you store on the Services or store using Third-Party Apps and Services.”
Additionally, Microsoft states, “You have a limited time from when the data was permanently deleted to restore files and messages. After that, the data cannot be recovered and is gone forever.”
So what should you do to protect your information? As Microsoft suggests, you regularly backup your data that is stored in the Microsoft Cloud because they are not responsible if something happens to it as a fault of theirs or as a fault of your own. TTG has great options to backup and archiving of data sitting in Office 365 and OneDrive cloud systems. We can help you get and stay protected right away!
