As a company we talk to hundreds of differnt people each year about their IT systems and the services and solutions that they have in place. Over the last few years, services like Microsoft 365 and G-Suite have seen a huge uptaking from businesses of all sizes as companies continue to head to the cloud. However from these converstations, I seem to get an similar response from most people I speak to, that they’re under the impression that because all their data is in the cloud, its automatically backed up.

However, this is 100% not the case. In the case of Microsoft 365 they are responsible for Hardware Failure, Software Failure, Natural Disasters and Power Outages, But when it comes to Human Error, Programmatic errors, Malicious attacks, External hackers or virus/malware that is down to the users.

An astonishing 1 in 3 businesses report losing data stored in cloud-based applications. In addition, out of all MSP reported SaaS ransomware attacks, 49% occurred in Office 365, up 17% from last year. Not only can the loss of the data itself be devastating to a company, but the time lost in attempting a recovery can be equally damaging.
