The security enhancements and ease of access from anywhere are some of the major reasons why many organisations are willing to make the switch to the cloud from on-premises Exchange Servers.
While Office 365 guarantees near 100% uptime, there can always be unfortunate events that can happen and may result in data loss. This is why it is imperative to use an Office 365 backup solution that can provide AES-256 bit encryption and incremental backup facility.
Some of the often-overlooked reasons that necessitate Office 365 backup include:
Unintentional or deliberate mail deletions
Malware or ransomware attacks
Synchronisation issues in your email client
Here’s a few more reasons for you to consider Office 365 backup:
1)Retention policy issues
Anyone familiar with the working of on premises Exchange would expect all their mails to be accessible anytime they wish to access them. Even deleted items would be in the junk folder. However, with Office 365, things get a bit more complicated.
Office 365 has retention policies that determine how long an erased information is to be kept before permanent deletion. Office 365 retention policies vary a lot depending on whom they are for. For instance, it could be way lesser for end users than it is for others higher up the ladder.
If retention policy changes lead to deletion of mails then the information is lost forever. In such scenarios having an Office 365 email backup can help you retrieve the lost data in no time.
2)Restore deleted items
Any organisation would have to deal with a lot of communication taking place. With multiple people at various levels having access to different channels of communication, there is always the possibility for some emails getting deleted intentionally or unintentionally. This necessitates having a secured local Office 365 backup from which you can access the information you need any time.
