Microsoft Teams Now Has More Than 115M Daily Users

It’s no secret that the use of collaborative tools has been on a steady incline since March when the COVID-19 pandemic forced many workers to go remote. Microsoft Teams, the company’s communication and collaboration messaging platform, has seen exponential growth in recent months. A mere 15 months ago, Teams had 13 million users. Fast forward to April 2020, about a month into the exodus from offices around the world, and Teams reached 75 million users. In late October, it’s now been reported that Teams has 115 million daily users.

The importance of cloud-to-cloud backup has become more clear in recent months. With businesses around the world operating remotely via cloud-based tools like Microsoft, small and medium business (SMB) data is more fragile than ever. Moreover, along with an increase in the adoption of cloud-based tools comes an increase in ransomware attacks targeting SMBs. If your SMB clients haven’t come around to the fact that cloud-to-cloud backup is imperative in a comprehensive data backup strategy, these staggering numbers may be able to help.
