SkyKick – Is your Cloud data safe & recoverable?

The Cloud is great. Everything stored online, safe and remote at the same time. But many assume that cloud data is automatically backed up – this isn’t necessarily true.


Office 365’s SharePoint and Exchange Online services have a “retention” function of 14 and 30 days respectively. This ensures files, emails, and other cloud data are recoverable for a short time, if accidentally deleted. However, this isn’t long term protection. We would not suggest that retention is relied upon in place of a true backup solution. It isn’t all that uncommon for an email to get deleted and go unneeded for several months. At that point, it is irretrievable. When information goes missing, the cost to your business can be huge. The same is true for files which may have been deleted and cannot be recovered.

The good news is that there is a simple and effective cloud data backup solution called SkyKick. This service is provided by a 3rd party – so your cloud data is protected by another provider. You wouldn’t want to keep all of your eggs in one basket.

By acting to provide a lasting backup solution to your Office 365 documents, emails and mailboxes, SkyKick is a great way to make sure your files are backed up in a fully comprehensive way. SkyKick takes away the worry of data loss. It ensures all your SharePoint Online files and Exchange Online emails are adequately backed up.

Need that email from before you purged your inbox 6 months ago? SkyKick makes that possible.

What’s better is that it doesn’t cost the earth, but can prove to be invaluable. It is now one of our most popular add-ons to Office 365.
