Your Data is Backed Up

Disaster Recovery is definitely something you need to be considering, luckily Microsoft 365 efficiently and regularly backs up all your files in case the worst happens. Rest assured that if your psychical device, email or files run into any trouble, all your organisation files are safely backed up and protected, whether that be from loss or cyber attacks, in the cloud.

What you really get, in other words, is peace of mind that a file isn’t going to be magically lost or corrupted. The threat of information loss is what keeps you up at night, but with your files securely backed up in the cloud, and accessible only by you or your employees – even in the event of a lost or damaged device – you will never lay awake worrying about the security of your data again.

Your Data is Kept Protected

Security has always been important, but with the COVID-19 pandemic influencing a dangerous spike in cyber attacks across the globe it’s time we all start to focus on our own security practices. Luckily Microsoft 365 has your back with it’s incredibly robust security measures. Ensure unauthorised eyes cant access your files if any of your devices become compromised with two factor authentication.

In addition, the Threat Protection Features in Microsoft 365 scan each & every attachment coming in via email. It does a comprehensive, real time analysis of the behaviour of the file to determine its intent (whether normal or malicious), thereby leading to better intelligent protection against unsafe attachments that are the basis for phishing schemes and ransomware infections

While it would be ideal for employees to understand they shouldn’t click on hyperlinks sent to them from people they don’t know—or messages with other obvious red flags—it’s not realistic to think that all of them will avoid phishing schemes. Even your staff who understand that they shouldn’t click on hyperlinks sent from people they don’t know, could be easily fooled by today’s sophisticated phishing schemes. These features remove the guesswork by doing the check for you and protecting your users from clicking through to malicious or unsafe sites or the system takes users to a warning page before allowing them access to the link.
