Why You Need to Back Up Your Cloud Data

With so many businesses and organizations using the cloud, backing up your cloud data has become essential. 

You might be thinking, ‘Oh, we have our stuff in the cloud, we don’t have to worry about backing up our data.’ The truth is – you need to worry about it even more because our data is all in different places now.

So, what’s the best way to back up cloud data?

Well, did you know that Microsoft recommends that you back up all of your data using a 3rd party provider? It’s in the agreement you sign with them.

We strive to keep the Services up and running; however, all online services suffer occasional disruptions and outages, and Microsoft is not liable for any disruption or loss you may suffer as a result. In the event of an outage, you may not be able to retrieve Your Content or Data that you’ve stored. We recommend that you regularly backup Your Content and Data that you store on the Services or store using Third-Party Apps and Services.

If you would like help with this, please contact us about our recommended Third-Party App services.

Additional Backup Tips

Tip 1: Back Up Your Mobile Devices

Make sure that mobile device that you’re carrying around is backed up. It should be backed up to the cloud to protect all of that personal and business information you’re storing on there. Also, make sure the backup is functioning properly.

Tip 2: Backup Onsite Servers and Computers

Anything that you have on the premises – such as onsite servers and computers – also need to be backed up. For computers, that includes anything stored directly on the computer.

Tip 3: Use Software That is Ransomware Proof

Make sure that your data is backed up with a piece of software that is ransomware proof. It seems that almost weekly a company or organization is hit with ransomware. With proper backup software, you can avoid the risk of ransomware.

Tip 4: Have a Backup Process

Process is critical when it comes to backups. You need to make sure that either you, or somebody else in the organization, is monitoring data backups, is testing, is reviewing configurations, is restoring data on a periodic basis. You don’t want the moment you are restoring your data to be when you find out whether your backup is working.
