“Amid the dramatically rapid shift to the remote working set up and increasing dependence on SharePoint, OneDrive, and Teams over the past year, protecting Office 365 data has turned out to be all the more crucial requirement than ever before — and more challenging,” said Murali Urs, the Country Manager of Barracuda Networks (India).

Therefore, organizations are now looking for comprehensive, easy-to-use backup solutions that are fast to get up, running and include capabilities like granular retention that aren’t included in Microsoft’s native functionality, he added.

Facing multiple hacking attempts on its business email servers worldwide, Microsoft has reiterated the warning that patching a system does not necessarily remove the access of the attacker.

The key vulnerabilities in the Microsoft business email servers have left cybersecurity experts flummoxed as this free-for-all attack opportunity is now being exploited by vast numbers of criminal gangs and state-backed threat actors.

According to the new report, 92 percent of IT decision-makers agreed that granular restore of Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, OneDrive, and Teams is important to them.
