    5 Reasons Why You Need Backup for Office 365-

    Short Retention Span

    Vendors can’t always get your data back.

    While Office 365 has methods to preserve deleted files, emails or entire mailboxes, the data may only be retained temporarily depending on the policies applied to the data, and may not be easily recoverable. Data is not always recoverable after this period has expired, which might come as a shock to the 95 percent of organizations that believe their SaaS provider can and will easily restore their lost data. Having third-party backup and recovery capabilities is the only way organizations can ensure they are fully protected against data loss should this retention period run out.

Businesses are continuing to turn to the cloud to take advantage of its unique ability to facilitate agile, collaborative work environments and do more with less — all while lowering overall IT costs. But as more organizations make the shift, it’s critical that they address the inherent risks of working in collaborative cloud environments — particularly regarding the potential loss of software-as-a-service (SaaS) data. With the fast-growing adoption of SaaS apps, like Office 365, at an all-time high, the timing for fully understanding cloud data protection couldn’t be more critical.   

In this slideshow, Jeff Erramouspe, VP and general manager of Spanning by EMC, outlines five reasons why organizations should make data protection for SaaS data a top priority.
