Office365 Backup

As a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider, we realised that there’s a false belief that data created and stored in cloud environments such as Office 365  & M365 does not need to be backed up.

Why Backup Office365 & M365

With Microsoft Office 365, you can work from anywhere without the need to host your own email, files and SharePoint infrastructure. However Microsoft only protects Office 365 at the infrastructure level. It’s still your data. You control it. And it is your responsibility to protect it at a data-level.

Microsoft Service Level Agreement states “We strive to keep the Services up and running; however, all online services suffer occasional disruptions and outages, and Microsoft is not liable for any disruption or loss you may suffer as a result. In the event of an outage, you may not be able to retrieve Your Content or Data that you’ve stored. We recommend that you regularly backup Your Content and Data that you store on the Services or store using Third-Party Apps and Services.”

Office 365 cannot protect you from data loss due to human error, malicious intent, outages, sync errors, hackers, or malware.

When you add to the equation the likelihood of employee errors and the frequency of malware attacks and security breaches, you have a significant cybersecurity gap that can cause business-critical data loss without any chance of recovery.

Office 365 is a powerful platform. However, it lacks the daily backup and archiving process. Native options to restore deleted items are time-bound, destructive (overwrite existing data),  and cumbersome. Moreover, once your data has been deleted from the Recycle Bin, manually or automatically, it’s permanently gone.
