New Release: The Gorilla Guide to Comprehensive Office 365 Backup!

It’s a big day in the IT Jungle! ActualTech Media is proud to announce The Gorilla Guide to …® Comprehensive Office 365 Backup! We developed this book in partnership with Druva to address a critical IT consideration for many organizations today: data protection in Office 365.

Office 365 is a critical business tool, especially now with remote work being a priority. In Office 365, businesses are responsible for their own data backup, security, retention, recovery, regulation, and legal holds. Data loss is a real concern, and Office 365 doesn’t protect from accidental deletions, user errors, ransomware, or insider attacks. For all these reasons, Microsoft recommends that you back up your Office 365 data with a third party tool. Figure 1 illustrates the concept of “shared responsibility.”
