Remote workers and endpoints have exponentially grown in recent years and the frequency of cyber-attacks on endpoints, the entry point for most forms of malware, has increased multi-fold, necessitating better data management & protection measures. Similarly, businesses are recognizing the increasing need to enhance protection of their Microsoft 365 accounts for regulatory compliance.
In today’s world, a comprehensive endpoint and Microsoft 365 data management & protection strategy are imperative to prevent data losses caused due to ransomware as well as insider threats such as accidental (or malicious) data deletion.
