In the dynamic landscape of today’s digital business world, Microsoft 365 has become the backbone of productivity for countless companies, boasting nearly 400 million paid licenses and over 280 million active monthly users on Microsoft Teams as of February 2023. The sheer volume of data generated and processed through these applications emphasizes the critical need for robust data protection measures.
Despite Microsoft’s commitment to ensuring high availability and infrastructure resilience, a crucial misconception persists among businesses – that Microsoft provides complete data protection for their applications and related data. However, a closer look at Microsoft’s services agreement reveals a different reality: Microsoft recommends businesses to use third-party solutions for backing up content and data, especially in cases of accidental deletions, security threats, or other unforeseen issues.
