Syntax Cloud Backup for Office 365

While Microsoft Office 365 guarantees 99.9% availability against hardware failure, it offers no protection of against data loss through user error or malicious attacks.

Approximately 75% of data loss is caused by user error, and that is why Microsoft recommend third-party backup services to maintain the integrity of business data, and mitigate the risk of data loss.

Syntax Cloud Backup ensures you have all your Microsoft Office 365 data when you need it.

Key Benefits

1. Compliance
Many organisations are required to maintain strict email and data retention regulations, were failure to comply can lead to fines. Having your own backup ensures you can comply with regulations regardless of your Office 365 plan.

2. Liability
Office 365 maximum liability in terms of service is $5,000.00 or your last 12 months subscription should something happen to your data, assuming its Microsoft’s fault. The actual cost of data loss is potentially unlimited, so it is best practice to keep a backup copy of your Office 365 data.

3. Audit rights
Office 365 gives you no audit rights. This is problematic, if as part of an audit, you are required to show the physical location of your data. Syntax Cloud Backup provides a backup copy of your Office 365 data in our UK datacentre which you are able to audit.

4. Ease of change or exit
Having all your Office 365 data in the Microsoft cloud means you are dependent on Microsoft. If you want to change vendor or keep your options open, having a backup copy will make it easier to migrate to another vendor’s service.
