Boost your Business Continuity Plan with Backup as a Service for Microsoft 365

Boost your Business Continuity Plan with Backup as a Service for Microsoft 365

The Loss of Business- Critical Data can have a serious impact on employee productivity, customer experience, day-to-day operations and even revenue. Therefore, data backup is vital for your business.

The best data backup solution

Having the best data backup solution protects your business against the ramifications of human errors, natural disasters, cyberattacks, system and hardware failures, internet outages, and power failures. A single incident can cause tremendous disruption and impact your bottom line.

Not all data is created equal. And not all data deserves top-tier protection. However, businesses must define data standards according to the risk level of the data.

  • Low-risk data is considered information that is already publicly available and has no bearing on your risk profile. 
  • Moderate risk data is personal contact information, salaries, contracts, reports, and budgets, which could adversely impact the business.
  • High-risk data is personally identifiable and confidential information, access credentials, financial details, which can negatively impact your reputation, brand and disrupt business operations. 

Data protection is a critical element of IT security, and company-wide data policy should dictate data standards according to your risk profile.

Already have Microsoft 365?

Microsoft 365 gives licensed users a range of data protection benefits such as short-term data recovery, user and admin controls, regulatory controls, and HIPPA compliance. But for complete confidence in your data maturity and preparedness for audits, lawsuits, and compliance investigations, you need the additional support of a Managed Service Provider (MSP) such as Forbtech for long-term data backup and recovery of all your Microsoft applications (Teams, Exchange Online, OneDrive for Business, SharePoint Online).

Distribute and Protect

While the motivation of threat actors is varied—money, revenge, industry domination, infrastructure instability—the end game is the same. Disrupt. Destroy. Control. Even if a business makes a ransom payment following a cyberattack, data, if ever returned, could be corrupted, incomplete, and useless. Thus, creating immutable copies of your sensitive and high-risk data is strongly recommended. Forbtech can help you categorize your data risk and develop a data management framework that can scale storage to meet your organization’s goals.

Backup as a Service (BaaS) backup levels of protection depending on the sensitivity of the data:

  • Good – server-based backups
  • Better – server-based backups + encrypted offsite copies
  • Best – server-based backups + encrypted offsite copies + immutable copies + backup testing

In addition to creating backup policies and procedures, you can build a mature business continuity plan and improve your resilience with IT asset management, physical and digital security, and the classification of data risk parameters. 

Business continuity planning involves first determining which data to protect, the appropriate storage location, and the required level of protection. Once your organization has made those decisions, Forbtech can help your business implement a solid data management program.

End to End Data Backup Management

Key factors in creating a scalable data backup solution depend on the organization’s size, the industry, and their budget. The organization’s maturity shapes the whole ecosphere of data protection, and most organizations don’t have resources solely devoted to the deployment, maintenance, testing, and restoration of data backups.

Any inability to recover data due to inexperience, internal confusion, or departmental miscommunication does not make you less culpable—it just increases the costs associated with data restoration efforts.

Forbtech can help you prioritize your data library and build a comprehensive data backup and recovery solution. High-risk data is secured and distributed, meaning that even if the Microsoft cloud environment fails, the restoration of your data is safe with immutable backup copies.  

An online data backup and recovery solution provides peace of mind for you, your employees, and your customers. That means you can retain your credibility, boost your reputation, and protect your data and information.
