Why Data Protection for Office 365 is Critical

Everything You Need To Protect Your Data That Lives Inside Office 365


Have you migrated to, or considering a migration to Microsoft 365? Too often, organizations overlook data protection when adopting a cloud productivity suite.

Here’s why you need to consider a standalone solution to protect your SaaS data:

  • By default, deleted files from Office 365 are purged from the Recycle Bin after 14 days or less.
  • Microsoft’s infrastructure is unlikely to fail, but user error (64%), hacking (13%) and account closure (10%) are the top 3 threats to your data according to this infographic.
  • Microsoft’s maximum liability is limited to the lesser of $5,000 or the last 12 months of subscription fees paid, and that's if you can prove the data loss was due to their negligence.
  • Laws such as Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA (US) and the Data Protection Act (UK) require you to prove off-site backups to an auditor, under threat of fines up to $10 Million.

Did you know? Microsoft backs up its customers' data, but you don't have access to those backups. Once files are purged from the Recycle Bin, they are irretrievable.

Hear from a panel of data protection experts who will explain how to safeguard your Exchange, SharePoint and OneDrive data using a single, end-to-end solution.
