This post was updated to reflect current trends and information.
The past few months have shown a sharp increase in the implementation of Office 365 and G suite. This is not surprising in the context of the global COVID-19 pandemic, as a huge number of employees around the world were forced to work remotely. It was necessary to quickly connect remote employees to their working environment, to keep productivity.
Thus, many companies do not plan to return employees to offices and consider the work-from-home (WFH) as a “new normal” reality. That is why companies must think about the protection of remote users and cloud data that are at risk more than ever.
Neither Google nor Microsoft make any warranties regarding the recovery of cloud information encrypted due to a ransomware attack, maliciously removed data or simply accidentally deleted information.
Thus, if you lose data in Office 365, there is no specific process or policy for recovering it. Google is trying to cater to its G Suite customers through the self-service Google support forums.
In order to avoid the most common data loss errors, your cloud security must adapt to a new way of working.
The first and most important rule is that you need to make an independent backup, which is separate from the SaaS application itself.
