What is Skykick Cloud Backup?
SkyKick Cloud Backup is a market-leading backup solution that helps protect your Office 365 data. Featuring unlimited backup storage, powerful search mechanics and one-click data restore, it’s one of the fastest and easiest ways to get your productivity back on track.
If you’re using Office 365 for your email, to store files in the cloud via OneDrive for Business, or to communicate and share files with your colleagues via Office 365 Groups and SharePoint, SkyKick will back up everything automatically up to six times per day. So, even if you delete a file by accident, chances are that it will be saved on a previous backup and can be easily recovered.
Office 365 archiving isn't a substitute for backup
Microsoft will only replicate your data in Office 365 for data retention purposes. Many users assume that their data is automatically backed up, as emails are archived. Unfortunately, features such as In-Place Hold and Legal Hold will only capture an email in Exchange Online and protect that data from deletion to meet compliance and legal requirements.
OneDrive for Business works similarly. As a storage system, it will store user’s files in personal accounts, so that they can have easy access to files on demand. But OneDrive users can permanently delete their data, if they choose to, and there’s no way for an administrator to restore them. On the other hand, SharePoint Administrators can permanently delete items on a site and will be unable to recover them. Using SkyKick, however, reduces these risks.
“32% of companies will experience data loss in the cloud.”
Skykick backs up and stores your files separately
“75% of data is lost via deliberate or accidental deletion”
With SkyKick, all your files are backed up and stored separately to eliminate cross-file infection. If you’re storing files in OneDrive for Business, once you save the document to your personal drive, the system will automatically
overwrite the original and sync the new version. While it is possible to return to an old version with Microsoft’s File Versioning feature, if the file is infected via malware or corrupted, all versions will be affected.
Data recovered in minutes
Restoring individual data from Office 365 can take IT Technicians up to 6 hours, due to a long and complicated export and import process. But with SkyKick, your files can be recovered in minutes with the one-click restore feature. The solution also allows your files to be restored in bulk on OneDrive for Business, with SharePoint folders, lists, sub-sites and sites bulk restore available in late 2018. Plus, all your Office 365 data can be recovered to the exact same location it was saved within.
