With every passing day, more and more businesses are beginning to reap the benefits of migrating to Office 365 cloud services. In fact, 74% of large businesses with over 4,000 employees now run Office 365 exclusively. But before your business makes the transition toward efficiency and security, it’s important to know the facts. Here are just a few myths about Office 365 migration and security.

Keeping data on company servers is always a safer alternative to cloud solutions such as Office 365.

This is a big misconception surrounding a number of cloud solutions. The fact is, Microsoft has a laundry list of security standards and certifications that protect its users’ information from being compromised in any way. Even if your company’s IT department is consistently expanding, you can rest easy upon moving to the cloud, all of your company’s data will remain protected, secure, and accessible at all times. There are also a number of Office 365 support options you can choose from to maximize usability. These IT support options often outweigh the knowledge of any on-site staff.

Microsoft shares its users’ data with the government.

This is another major myth that can compromise data. Microsoft is very explicit with its security standards, and they make it exceedingly clear that your company will always have exclusive rights to your data.

In fact, a quote from their website states, “Microsoft does not mine your data for advertising or for any purpose other than providing you services that you have paid for … If you ever choose to leave Office 365, you take your data with you.”

It may also be reassuring to hear that Microsoft is actually the first major cloud service provider to officially adopt the five key principles of the international standard for cloud privacy. These principles are simple: users are in control of their own data, users know what is happening with their data, Microsoft provides high-quality security protection for users’ data, data will never be used for advertising, and all government inquiries will be made directly to users.

Ultimately, being aware of these major security myths can help your business make the best decisions regarding Office 365 migration and IT support. For more information about Office 365 benefits, contact Manhattan Tech Support.
