Sys-Assure 365

Enterprise-grade Back-up & Recovery for M365

The Power of M365

Like so many businesses across the world, you have moved to Microsoft 365 and it provides powerful functionality and communications. You're already seeing the benefits: an increase in productivity, a reduction in costs, accessibility for the team - wherever they are and an increase in flexibility, which in turn has made your employees more engaged and motivated. However, you may not be as protected as you need...

M365's power is in its functionality and ease of use. But it is not a data back-up and recovery service. You shouldn't assume your data will be there all the time.

Microsoft only guarantee 90% of your data for 30 days, making it vulnerable to loss, theft, cyber attacks and other threats.

Here are the top five causes of data loss in the cloud (and the top five reasons why you need to back up your M365):

Risk Profile

The Human Factor

Does this sound familiar? 

You have been working on one of your key files – for example,  next year’s budget. You have been changing figures here, deleting lines there. Then you realise that you need to start over! You spontaneously hit save instead of cancel. With that sinking feeling you realise that you have overwritten the company,  budget thereby erasing hours (if not days) of work. 

What do you do – call Microsoft?

They will simply tell you that they cannot go back in time and restore the previous version.

The Hackers

If you have not had an attack or at least an attempt, then it’s probably only a matter of time. So what happens when you open that email and click on the link which activates a virus? Suddenly your files are encrypted and you have a ransom demand. 

What do you do – call Microsoft?

They will tell you that there is  no guarantee they can recover all (or any) of the files and if they  can it may take some time (hours/days/weeks). 

Sys Assure M365 Backup

With a cloud backup solution – in a matter  of minutes, you can recover the file (in fact all of your files) as it was before the virus hit. 

Risk Profile

The Leaver

Sound familiar?

An employee leaves the company you deactivate their Microsoft 365 account. However, you need to retrieve an email, an Excel  sheet or a presentation from their account. What do you do – call Microsoft?

Well they will tell you that  from the time you deactivated the employees account they  held the files for 30 days and then deleted them.

Sys-Assure M365 Backup

With a cloud backup solution – you can recover all of the files (including emails) in a matter of minutes. In fact, you can search your backups at a granular level.

Risk Profile

The Rogue Employee

You trust your employees with your data and 99% of the time your trust is well placed.

Sometimes however, employees just go rogue! After they have left the company, you discover they have deleted a chunk of your data. 

What do you do – call Microsoft?

They will again tell you that there is no guarantee they can recover all (or any) of the files  and if they can it may take some time (hours/days/weeks).

Sys-Assure M365 Backup

With a cloud backup solution, you can recover any data that has been maliciously deleted.

Risk Profile

The Miss-h(apps)

Apps are GREAT! They make life so much easier.

We all use apps (your employees use them). Sometimes however, they start misbehaving and act in an unpredictable way. 

Unsurprisingly, the fifth most popular cause of data loss in the cloud is data being overwritten by third party software. If this sounds unlikely, then remember, if it happened to Steve Wozniak, Apple Co-Founder, then it can probably happen to you! 

What do you do – call Microsoft?

Once again, Microsoft will tell  you that there is no guarantee they can recover all (or any) of the  files and if they can it may take some time (hours/days/weeks). With a cloud backup solution, you can recover any data that has been overwritten (including calendars).

Enterprise-grade Back-up & Recovery for M365

What about data backup and recovery? Microsoft will only guarantee 90% of your data  for 30 daysIs that enough? 

Sys-Assure delivers 100% of your data – unlimited volume for unlimited time, for each M365 account retained for as long as you need. It is also backed-up in the UK separately to Microsoft’s M365 service for that added layer of security.

If your employees (including you!) never make mistakes; if your security is 100% buttoned up and nothing is getting in; if your employees never leave; if you have never had (and never will have) a disgruntled employee and your apps will never do anything they are not supposed to do – then you do not need to back up your Microsoft 365.

However, if you are like the rest of us, then you need Sys-Assure Business Continuity for Microsoft 365.
