1. Human Error

Office 365 is a great platform with lots of unique features making it more popular than its competitors. You have the ability to work with your team at the same time on multiple projects across any device. This great feature may become a disadvantage as you will never be protected from human error. In fact, according to CloudHQ, human errors are standing behind 64 percent of all data loss incidents.

2. Hackers

Backup plans will also protect your data from being hacked. Most of our information is being stored in the cloud, which makes it easier for hackers to access your files. You don’t want this to happen. Unfortunately, in the information age – we need to consider extra steps for data protection from the outside hackers in addition to the insiders who already have access to all your documents.

3. Retention Time

The third reason why you should consider having a backup for Office 365 is retention time. Only by having a third-party backup and recovery abilities your organizations be fully protected from data loss. With the available backup, there is a chance that you may not find an important document from previous projects. Having a third-party backup will save you a lot of time reproducing the documents that you could not restore.

4. Compliance

Unfortunately, not all of the SaaS (Software as a service) applications can store data in compliance with outside regulations. Therefore, companies need to do their due diligence to ensure information is easily available in the cloud in compliance with the main requirements. Reis Information Systems can help you set up a third-party system which will keep your data safe and secure at all times.

5. More than recovery, it’s about restore

Today’s collaborative cloud contains a high level of coordination between coworkers. It is not sufficient to simply recover lost data. Companies need the ability to quickly restore information back to any point in time. Ensuring a backup system is always enabled will allow you to go as far back as you need to find the correct document.
