4. Security

Microsoft 365 doesn’t allow you to send sensitive information outside the company’s domain. An attempt to do that can block the company network and also be tracked by the company. This is a great way to secure the company’s information. Data is secured and when a situation of data loss occurs then a backup can be retrieved. However, Microsoft has time constraint when it comes to retrieving unsaved or unintentionally deleted data. But to address this issue, having a third party secure AI-based backup like Acronis data backup will add double protection to data which means your data is automatically backed up and even unintentional deletion of data can be retrieved at any time and from anywhere. It also protects your data against ransomware attacks and hence providing a secure environment for data storage.

Migrating from the existing company’s mailbox and the calendar is easy and doesn’t take much of your time. It can be done either by you or one of our technical support team can complete this task for you.

There are many web apps and add-ins available for the Microsoft software which helps to upgrade and customise the platform depending on your team’s requirements.
