Microsoft Office 365 has a lot to offer to its customers. Compared to Microsoft Office 2013, it is significantly better software!
Although the new software scores higher than its predecessor in almost every aspect, its safety features are especially worth noting. And that is exactly what we are going to talk about here.
As far as safety of your data is concerned, these are some things you can do when you rely on Microsoft Office 365:
You can be lazy
If you forget to renew your subscription for some reason, you need not worry about your data getting lost. Microsoft gives you an additional 90 day period during which you can recover your data. That is, even after your subscription is over!
You can act tough
Microsoft Office 365 encourages you to use passwords that are very tough. In case that is not enough for you, you can even use multi-factor authentication. Basically, what that means is that you need not worry about someone else sneaking through your valuable data.
You can sleep better
The fact of the matter is that Office 365 makes use of cloud privacy standard that is approved by the International Organization for Standardization, or ISO. That is not all. Even European authorities approve of Microsoft’s standards in this regard. Believe it or not, the whole thing is far more secure than most people think it is.
You can speculate and wonder
Microsoft does not let anyone know where it stores its data; at least, not anyone who falls among the general public. Also, the corporation manages a number of different facilities scattered all over the world. Even if a hacker wants to go through your data, the first and biggest challenge will be locating the data center where the information is stored!
You can just relax
BitLocker Encryption, SSL, and IRM are just some of the many different encryptions used to protect your data. Whether you want to view your data at rest, or communicate with your data somehow, you can be certain that everything is encrypted all the time. That means, prying eyes cannot even glance at your things for even a second.
When dealing with cloud, there is almost always a certain degree of risk involved. Yet, it seems that Microsoft has managed to minimize that to a great extent with its Office 365. That is evident from the fact that all of the above points are quite exciting and reassuring.
