Whilst the adoption of cloud computing is fast becoming the norm running your business via cloud services like Exchange also creates a new set challenges. Data loss due to hardware failure is greatly reduced however the risk of email loss caused by human error and hacker intrusion is still common place.

Consider the fact that email communications with clients and suppliers contain important information which may threaten continuity of business should it be lost. This is why we consider having a regular and secure backup of all email data by a reputable 3rd party provider to be essential.
