Myth: My cloud platform provides comprehensive backup
Truth: There might be a certain level of backup baked into productivity solutions like Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace, but it is often not enough to fully protect your organization. Many vendors even recommend adding a more robust backup solution.
Myth: Backup protects me against ransomware
Truth: Backing up your data is critical in protecting your organization from ransomware and other cyberattacks. However, a backup cannot prevent your data from being stolen or encrypted in the first place.
A robust backup and recovery solution ensures you can quickly and easily restore your lost or stolen data. However, you may still be at risk of further harm if the cybercriminal decides to use your already stolen data against you.
Myth: Any backup solution will do since all backup is the same
Truth: When it comes to data backup and recovery solutions, businesses of all sizes have numerous options. There is a backup solution to meet the needs of any organization, ranging from simple solutions that create a copy of your data to more robust enterprise-level solutions that include integrations with productivity applications and advanced security measures.
The first step in choosing the best backup solution for your organization is determining your specific requirements. Do you require a simple solution or a more robust enterprise-level solution?
