"Too many organisations only check backups in severe weather when more realistically the outage can happen at any time due to human error"

Accidentally deleting data is one of the most common causes for business data loss.

In the cloud and in collaboration apps, users can easily delete a project by mistake or overwrite their work through the auto-save functions. 

Furthermore, Microsoft recommends 3rd party backup as the only way to recover from data loss associated with ransomware encryption.  Often the cyber agent will encrypt your data in a way that you cannot use the Microsoft integrated File History or System Protection backups. 

A back-up solution is the best way to ensure you can recover information. Plus, you can save up to 95% on your Microsoft 365 licence costs by choosing Chess Data Protect. For only £1.25 per user per month you can back up the data from SaaS applications, helping you to reduce your costs in the time of crisis. 

What is Chess Data Protect for Microsoft 365?  

Data Protect for Microsoft 365, powered by Datto, is a cloud-to-cloud backup product offering an all in-one backup, restore and export solution that covers Exchange Online, OneDrive, SharePoint Online, and Microsoft Teams. It ensures that businesses can access, control, and most importantly protect the data that employees entrust to the cloud. 

Why do you need Chess Data Protect for Microsoft 365? 

While Microsoft 365 does include primitive restore capabilities for lost data, two major issues arise when using their tools: lost data and lost time. Therefore, an independent data backup separated from the app itself is necessary to avoid the most common data loss pitfalls.
