Microsoft 365 is a powerful productivity suite that many businesses in the Newcastle / Hunter Region rely on extensively. The problem is that Microsoft only provides a limited native data backup option, exponentially increasing the risk of sensitive data loss for various reasons.
The good news is there are various Microsoft 365 (M365) backup solutions from third-party providers. The key here is to find a provider that understands your needs and gives you the local support you expect.
Why Protect Your Microsoft 365 Data?
In this day and age, protecting your Microsoft 365 data is more of a necessity than a luxury. Here’s why you must protect your M365 data:
Based on data published by the Notifiable Data Breaches Report for the July – December 2021 period, cyber security incidents accounted for 37% of all data breaches in Australia. These include ransomware, phishing (compromised credentials), brute-force attacks, malware, hacking, and others.
If your business uses M365 to streamline its operations, your data will be at great risk if you don’t have any backups. Microsoft incorporates native detection and security protocols, but hackers and cyber criminals usually tend to find their way around even the most advanced security measures.
Opting for third-party M365 backup solutions enables you to restore your data quickly in the event of a cyber attack.
Even the most experienced employees aren’t immune to human error. It’s not uncommon for key M365 business data to be deleted beyond recovery by accident. In that case, if you haven’t already adopted a solid backup solution, you won’t be able to retrieve your data.
Not to mention, data deletion may happen due to out-of-hand reasons, such as power outages and natural disasters.
While the Microsoft 365 Recycle Bin allows you to restore deleted data for a set period of time, you won't be able to retrieve data that was deleted several months before.
Suppose you’re looking for a specific version of a file that was overwritten. In that case, you might be able to restore the unedited version from version history but doing this for more than a few files is impractical and time-consuming.
The best and most realistic approach here is to create M365 data backups for emergencies. With cloud backups, you’ll be able to find and retrieve data efficiently regardless of when or how it was lost.
The Benefits of Backing Up M365
Here are some of the key benefits of keeping backups of your M365 data:

M365 Backup Solutions Scale With Your Business
As your business grows and scales, your M365 data backup provider needs to adapt to such growth with scalable solutions. This spares you the need to migrate to a different provider capable of accommodating your bigger backup requirements.
Choose Between Multiple Solution Models
M365 data backup providers often let you choose between public cloud backups, on-premise backups, and hybrid backup solutions.
Depending on your business needs, you may favour one solution over the other, and here at saberVox, we give you the freedom of choice.
Public cloud backups are ideal for businesses that don’t have the required resources for hosting. On the other hand, on-premise solutions are more suitable for businesses that prefer to use their computers and servers for M365 backups.
Hybrid solutions store part of the data on the provider’s servers, while the rest is kept on the business’ resources. Some businesses may even choose to keep full backups on both the provider’s and their own servers and computers.
