Microsoft 365 is an invaluable tool for businesses, with tools like Outlook, Teams, OneDrive, SharePoint, 365 CoPilot and so much more. However, it has a surprising weak point that could catch you off guard: did you know that Microsoft 365 lacks a built-in backup and archiving system? It feels like a complex situation, but not anymore, thanks to HardSoft’s Flying Squirrel solution.

People accidentally delete data all the time. Although Microsoft 365 has a recycle bin, it’s often overlooked, and after 90 days, it empties completely. Employees might delete crucial files, only realising the loss when it’s too late. Read on to find out how Flying Squirrel can help with this problem.

Why is it important to back-up your data?

In today’s business landscape, work takes place across various locations, devices, and apps, increasing the likelihood of errors leading to deleted data or misplacing important documents.

Employees may unknowingly overwrite their work, which can be common when working with spreadsheets or presentations. Or colleagues could update content without you even knowing. Without solutions to sync files and access previous versions, you can really shoot yourself in the foot.

And that’s just human error covered. What if you’ve just let an employee go, and they’re out for revenge? What’s to stop them going into your system and deleting files that are vital for your business? You might not even notice they’re gone until it’s too late.

There’s also the chance that your data could be infiltrated by a third-party. Hackers are clever, and once they’re inside your system, they can hold your data hostage, stealing, encrypting, and deleting vital business information. The choices are grim: pay the ransom, face the consequences, or start fresh.

How can Flying Squirrel help?

Flying Squirrel provides stress free, automated backup to a third-party cloud location on your terms. You can choose the frequency and number of backups with minimal disruption to your daily workflow.

You can protect all your data within the Office 365 suite, including emails, documents, files, and images. Plus, it covers Google Workspace, including tools like Gmail, Google drive and calendars.

Multiple versions of files are saved over time, so you can jump back when needed. Overwritten something? No problem, all your previous versions still saved and ready to go.

You can go back a day, a month or even a year. Looking for a specific single email? No worries, with Flying Squirrel, it’s easy to recover.

How does Flying Squirrel work?

Flying Squirrel uses incremental backups, meaning that it will identify files that have changed within your system. Not only that, but you’ll receive regular backup notifications directly to your email, ensuring you’re always in the loop.

Flying Squirrel is the perfect solution for protecting your data, seamlessly integrating with existing HardSoft products like Shepherd MDM and Boomerang, so your business devices get the full works when it comes to security and deployment.

It also equips you with the tools to prevent security issues, so you’ll never have to worry about curing them.
