How to protect Microsoft 365 with Cyber Backup

Microsoft 365 stands at the forefront of productivity solutions for enterprises, increasingly serving as their preferred choice for security and resilience. Yet, it’s crucial to remember that Microsoft 365 alone doesn’t cover all bases. Despite its robust infrastructure resilience, enterprises risk significant losses without a dedicated data protection solution.

Enter Cyber Backup by Acronis. This tool simplifies the process of backing up your Microsoft 365 data securely and compliantly in the cloud. It automatically safeguards everything from crucial emails to entire Microsoft Teams channels and SharePoint sites against accidental deletion, disasters, or malware.

Such protection enables direct backups from Microsoft’s data centers, reducing training and maintenance expenses. It also offers detailed monitoring and quick searches for backup status. Moreover, in the event of a disaster, recovery of files is swift and straightforward through a unified backup interface.

Why back up?

The importance of comprehensive backup solutions has grown with the rise in data threats to businesses. Sonos reports that last year, 48% of UK businesses suffered ransomware attacks, with only 24% halting the attacks before data encryption. Lacking a backup solution could cost enterprises dearly in recovery, with many lacking the necessary cyber insurance.

Besides ransomware, accidental deletion presents a substantial challenge. Despite extensive training, human errors are unavoidable, as highlighted by the Met Office’s recent accidental loss of 400,000 crime records.

A 2020 Databarracks survey found that 31% of businesses lost data due to human error. Software failures, hardware failures, and data corruption also remain major threats, responsible for significant data losses. These incidents underline that effective security measures alone cannot guarantee data protection.

Shockingly, many UK businesses lack comprehensive data protection strategies. Beaming’s research indicates that 17% of UK businesses have no backups, and 35% keep backup data on-site. Furthermore, the increasing ransomware attacks on public cloud apps underscore the vulnerability of such data storage practices.

Don’t risk your data

Countless UK businesses risk data loss incidents that could jeopardize their operations. Acronis Cyber Protect stands out by offering round-the-clock automatic protection for new items in Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and Microsoft Teams, along with safeguarding OneDrive files and their permissions.

Acronis significantly cuts down recovery times after incidents, ensuring business continuity without the additional costs of licenses, training, and integration associated with other software. It’s the perfect companion for businesses using Microsoft 365, especially those without an effective backup strategy.

IT can be a major worry for all small businesses. I signed Smarter Sales UK up with Simultech IT last month and since joining, Bharat and his friendly and most professional team have given me complete peace of mind. It is great to know that should I need any assistance whatsoever, someone in the team is there to support me 24/7 at the click of a mouse. Their attention to detail and customer service is outstanding. I can’t recommend them more highly.

Bharat cleaned (literally too) my laptop of viruses, ensured I knew how to backup and store my files in the Microsoft onedrive, walking me through it, by logging onto my laptop remotely – prior to me handing it over.

He also ensured Windows 10 was placed on my laptop, and turned it around for the next morning – so only just over 24 hours later I was able to work again.

He also gave me a one to one to show me the changes, and explained regular good practice, to try and keep my laptop secure and safe in future. He explained things in a simple way, and by getting me to undertake the copy, saved us both time, and made sure I was used to the process.

He also tidied up the look and feel of my laptop, with the items/apps I need easily to hand. He amazingly also saved my rotating screen saver.

He made sure I felt comfortable with the changes. He is a real professional and I would recommend him and his company to others. I still can’t believe how quickly he turned it all around, as my files were still copying over late into the evening, and he therefore worked late to ensure I got my laptop back as quickly as possible – when realistically it could have taken another day.

He delivers as promised – and more! This is my IT company for life!

Well what can I say?! Bharat and his team are superb! Nothing is too much trouble for them. They explain what they are going to do every step of the way.

We have migrated across to Bharat and his team have been looking after us for a while now. He has also saved us a lot of money in the long run.

I would highly recommend Bharat to anyone looking for an IT firm that is looking to grow and scale their business. He will work with you in partnership and genuinely cares.
