Why you should always back up your emails

Why you should always back up your emails

Have you ever considered where your emails are stored and what happens to them when you delete them?

While we receive lots of daily emails that we send to trash, there are sometimes moments when an email gets deleted accidentally. Whether this is through human error or through a malware attack, it’s always important to know whether the information contained in it can be recovered.

If you use Microsoft Office 365, the answer is probably not. Microsoft doesn’t back up or recover emails and state in their terms that it is the customer’s responsibility to back up their emails. This includes email loss due to human error, malware and hacks, and malicious users. Even in cases where Microsoft can restore your mailbox, they can’t guarantee its full restoration or that it will be done speedily, leaving you potentially without the vital emails needed to keep your business running.

What can you do to protect your emails?

The simplest answer is to implement a robust recovery solution. LP Networks offers a backup service which automatically backs up your emails 3 times a day. This simple add on to your current service plan protects you from any email data loss, no matter whether you caused it, it was through a natural disaster, or you were the victim of cybercrime.

With regular updates and our backup, monitoring and alert systems running 24/7 means our Service Desk can keep your email downtime to a minimum.

Additionally, as Microsoft Silver Partners, you can rest assured that you are entrusting your email security to a competent and trusted company who are experts in Office 365 environments.

If you want to make sure that your emails are safe and protected, get in touch with one of our team today on 0800 970 8980 or email enquiries@lpnetworks.com

“To err is human, to forgive divine”, and while we’re less than likely to forgive cybercriminals for wanting to steal our personal details and hack our systems, it is possible for us to all make mistakes. 80% of breaches and cyberattacks are caused by someone clicking on a link in a phishing email or being directed to a fake website.
