Why it is important to backup your Microsoft 365 environment

Microsoft 365 is a powerful and feature-rich platform, but like any software, it is not immune to issues such as data loss, cyber attacks, or other disasters.

By having a separate backup, you can protect yourself against these types of events and ensure that you have access to your data even if something goes wrong with your Microsoft 365 environment.

In addition to providing an extra layer of protection, having a separate backup also allows you to more easily recover from data loss or corruption. If you only have one copy of your data, you may have to wait longer to restore your data if the primary copy becomes damaged or is otherwise unavailable. With a separate backup, you can restore your data more quickly by choosing the backup that is most recent and therefore most likely to be intact.

Also, having a separate backup allows you to store your data in a different location, which can help to protect against physical disasters such as fires or floods. For example, you could store your backup in a cloud-based storage solution such as MSP360. This way, if your primary location is compromised, you still have access to your data from another cloud location.

Having a separate backup can also help to reduce the risk of data loss due to human error. For example, if you accidentally delete a file or overwrite an important document, you can restore it from your backup rather than having to recreate the data from scratch.

Therefore we recommend to have a separate backup of your Microsoft 365 environment in order to protect against data loss and ensure that you have a reliable backup plan in place. By taking the time to set up a separate backup, you can safeguard your data and have peace of mind knowing that your important information is secure.
