Microsoft Pushes “Shared Responsibility”

Microsoft’s shared responsibility model within the cloud differs between Software as a Service (Saas), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). There are some security tasks that Microsoft does not account for. According to Microsoft, you are responsible for protecting the security of your data and identities, on-premises resources, and the cloud components you control including data, endpoints, accounts and access management.

With the shared responsibility of backing up yours and your clients crucial information within your Microsoft 365 accounts, it’s important to understand exactly where the gaps are in protecting your data. StoredTech partners with organizations as a managed service provider. We provide solutions for all your IT needs. We ensure that routine backups are regularly performed on your Microsoft 365 accounts to keep your business prepared in the event of a loss of data. Your business will eliminate risk, meet compliance, and decrease downtime with effective business continuity planning.

Business Continuity

We plan to keep our partners protected with data backup and disaster recovery services. A business continuity plan includes defending your valuable information if it is mistakenly deleted or intentionally stolen.

When your business completes a Microsoft 365 migration, you gain access to hundreds of applications offered by Microsoft in addition to your favorites like Office, Excel, and PowerPoint. Small businesses and enterprise size companies benefit from Microsoft 365 migration, bringing them to a digital transformation. A seamless collaboration is created for remote workers, staff in different offices, and overall productivity. These applications are designed to help your team create, connect and get more done from anywhere.

Your Microsoft 365 is Not Automatically Backed Up

Full backup and recovery protection is critical for your Microsoft 365 data. Not only does it protect your information from disappearing, it also provides advanced threat detection and prevents malicious malware.

If you are an enterprise size business, you surely have a business continuity plan in place. Small businesses may not have one, yet have just as much to risk if they lose all of their data. Most business owners assume that their Microsoft 365 data is automatically backed up. StoredTech deploys Datto’s multi-layered ‘SaaS Protection’ and ‘SaaS Detection’ to scan for cyber threats, ensure recovery, and perform backups 3x a day.

Why Do I Need to Retain My Data?

Many industries such as healthcare, banking, and government agencies require long-term data storage. Your business needs to be up and running quickly if your accounts are compromised or hardware fails.
