Is Your Office365 Environment Backed Up

Microsoft Office365

It is a great misunderstanding that your email is backed up in the cloud with Microsoft when you leverage their service for email.  This is not the case and something that organizations should be mindful of depending on compliance or overall legal requirements via liability.  In many cases if there is a legal situation with an employee or client, the judge in the discovery process will request an organization to reproduce emails for the time period in question and many organizations are not set up for this.  There are several solution out there that bva uses that will capture all inbound and outbound message correspondence.  Typically a service of this nature is an additional cost of about $2 to $4 per user/per month but having an online backup of your data in a secure location is a must.  If you would like to know more about solutions that could work for your business, please contact bva.
