Barracuda, a leading provider of cloud-enabled security solutions, has released findings from a report entitled The State of Office 365 Backup.

Commissioned by Barracuda, the research surveyed global decision makers, including 201 Australian IT leaders, to capture their opinions and perspectives about Office 365, data security, backup and recovery and SaaS solutions. 

Overall, the findings indicate that the shift to remote work during the pandemic has intensified the challenges associated with protecting Office 365 data. 

“For many Australian organizations, protecting Office 365 data has become more critical and more challenging over the past year what with the accelerated shift to remote work and the increasing reliance on SharePoint, OneDrive and Teams,” said Andrew Huntley, ANZ Regional Sales Director, Barracuda.

“That’s why organizations are assessing what additional steps they need to take to ensure the staff, the devices they are using and the resources they are accessing are secure at all times. Key features include easy-to-use backup solutions that are fast to get up and running and have core capabilities like granular retention that aren’t included in Microsoft’s native functionality.”

The survey, conducted by independent market researcher Censuswide, includes responses from 1,828 executives, individual contributors and team managers with responsibility for their organization’s cloud infrastructure. This included 201 IT decision makers in Australia. They came from organizations in companies in the US, EMEA and APAC.
