Microsoft 365 – Is your data safe in the Cloud?

It is a commonly asked question and something which I’m sure many of you have wondered yourselves. Is my data safe? Is the cloud trustworthy? Am I more likely to be hacked in the Cloud?

And the answer is simple, if you are using trusted cloud providers such as Microsoft OneDrive, or Microsoft SharePoint, then your data is safe. The Cloud is designed to offer you a highly secure and protected space for your data to live, whilst also storing it away from your physical device.

About the Cloud?

Cloud storage is a service that stores your files, photos and data in a remote data centre and gives you access over the internet to them, from any place, at any time. With nearly unlimited capacity you are able to store your data here no matter what the size or format.

The Cloud has become widely used by businesses as it offers access from any device, with the benefit protection of it being based off-site. It offers collaboration features such as file sharing, real-time collaboration, and version history and in some cases can offer services such as ransomware recovery, virus scanning and mass file deletion warnings.

Furthermore, the Cloud can be integrated into any business, regardless of the budget, and is in most cases cheaper and more secure than in house servers or solutions.
