Microsoft Office 365 is extremely popular with businesses across the world, with commercial users topping 250 million by May 2020. 

Office 365 enables businesses to work anywhere, anytime, without the associated complications of hosting email, files and SharePoint infrastructure.

Rather than facing the potentially-significant upfront costs associated with software licences, companies are able to benefit from a range of cloud and on-premises software for a manageable monthly fee - a particularly popular option for small or medium-sized businesses looking to leverage the benefits of a comprehensive, all-in-one solution.

The COVID-19 crisis has seen a continued uptake in companies investing in 365’s cloud services (email, cloud storage, collaboration), as employees continue to work from home. 

Whilst Office 365 has solved a variety of problems for businesses, particularly in the current climate - a scalable solution, with no hardware or upfront costs, which enables employees to continue to work efficiently from home - there is a common misconception that, once a company invests in Office 365, their data is automatically backed-up. 

Not so! 

Whilst Microsoft hosts the infrastructure, and Office 365 features a range of in-built security features such as snapshot and undelete, Office 365 does not create proper backups in the cloud, or on-premises.

Ultimately, it’s up to you to safeguard your company’s business-critical data. 

It’s perhaps no surprise, then, that up to 80% of companies have experienced some form of data loss using public cloud services. 

Whilst not requiring the same level of upkeep as physical assets such as servers, applications and endpoints, as a central aspect to the daily operations of your business, Office 365 should be treated with the same level of importance. 

Office 365 houses your data - data that is critical to your business - so you need to control it and back in up regularly. 

Quite a responsibility, no? 

If you lack the time or resources to undertake a secure backup of your data, Concorde Cloud Solutions provides a comprehensive backup service, using the latest Veeam Backup technology - eliminating the risk of losing access and control to your precious, business-critical data.

Once backed up, in the unlikely event that you have an issue with your Office 365, you suffer a security threat or some form of human error, you’ll still be able to access your precious data. 

Furthermore, Veeam Backup features the option to restore individual Office 365 email, files and sites, with the option to securely backup Office 365 to any location, including on-premises, hyper-scale cloud, or a service provider.
