10 Reasons Why You Can Trust Office 365 With Your Data – Part 1

As more and more businesses consider working in the cloud and shifting to Office 365, security and privacy remains top of everybody’s mind. Customers need a ready-to-go productivity solution that is inherently secure and trustworthy and Microsoft has gone out of its way to deliver.

If you’re considering moving to Office 365 but are still uncertain on whether or not your data will be sufficiently protected, we discuss 10 reasons why you have nothing to fear in this two-part blog.

Restricted access to physical data centres

Microsoft restricts access to its physical data centres to authorised personnel only, this means you can rest assured that no prying eyes will come into contact with your precious data. They have even gone so far as to implement multiple layers of physical security such as biometric readers, motion sensors, 24 hour secured access, video camera surveillance and security breach alarms.

Encryption of data

Office 365 enables encryption of data both at rest and via the network as it is transmitted between a data centre and a user which ensures that no unwanted eyes can peek at your data.

You don’t need to be an expert in big data analytics to make data-driven decisions every day. Empower your employees with easy-to-use Business Intelligence with Office 365 to create custom reports, track key performance metrics or visualize your data to generate more insights.

No mining or accessing your data for advertising

One of the greatest fears for cloud users is that their data will be mined for advertising purposes especially since this is commonplace with many cloud platforms. With Office 365 you won’t have to worry about this because it will never happen. Microsoft takes a safe approach by making sure none of your data can get exposed.

Customer data only used to improve the service

The data from Office 365 customers will only ever be used to help improve the overall experience of the service but it will never be shared.  When we speak of the data in this instance, it does not refer to your actual content so you can breathe a huge sigh of relief. Microsoft will not access your mailbox or OneDrive without your permission.

Your data is backed up regularly

Microsoft employs multiple layers of redundancy and backups of information at the datacentre level, so in a rare event where data may be lost or corrupted on Microsoft servers, it can be restored.
