The go-to source for this vital ingredient is Microsoft® 365, which is equipped with important tools such as Outlook, Word, Excel and SharePoint.

This is precisely where Cloud Backup for Microsoft 365 comes into play. The solution from Rackspace Technology® is vital for safeguarding and protecting valuable data in Microsoft 365. It adds a powerful layer of protection that can safeguard data, simplify data recovery, protect against cyberattacks and help maintain compliance.

Keep your data safe with Cloud Backup

Fortunately, Cloud Backup acts as a secure barrier for your data, safeguarding it from cyberattacks. Plus, in the event of a breach, you can easily recover your data without any added stress.

Also, complying with legal regulations for handling data can be daunting. Various industries have strict requirements for data retention and security.

Think of it as a dependable guide, helping you organize and avoid the worst cybercrimes so that your data is always safe and compliant.

Avert disasters during upgrades

As your business grows, you’ll typically need to upgrade or switch Microsoft 365 plans. Not having a backup plan in place before executing an upgrade or switch can be risky. It's a bit like playing a game of Jenga with your data. It could all fall apart during the transition.

With Cloud Backup, upgrading and migrating your software allows you to breathe easy. You can move your data without worrying about anything going wrong, including data loss.

Human error is the leading cause of insider data loss

Picture this: You’re working on a critical project in Microsoft 365 when suddenly, you accidentally delete a crucial email or document. Anyone can make this mistake. In fact, it’s inevitable that members of your team will accidentally delete important data at some point.

According to Egress’ Insider Data Breach Survey 2021 an overwhelming 94% of organizations have experienced insider data breaches. Further, human error is the leading cause of serious insider data breaches, with 84% of organizations experiencing a security incident caused by a mistake.

Without a backup plan in place, recovering lost data can be as difficult as finding a needle in a haystack. But with Cloud Backup, recovering deleted data is easy.

While Microsoft 365 has backup features, they aren't bulletproof. This is where Cloud Backup saves the day. The solution provides a quick, seamless way to restore lost data exactly as it was and where it was, allowing your team to get back on track and stay productive.  

In a world where data is everything, safeguarding your Microsoft 365 data is essential. Cloud backup protects your data from accidents, cyberattacks and data loss. Rather than worrying about potential data loss, you can focus on growing your business, knowing that your data is securely backed up and easily recoverable in case of a disaster.
