Why you Need an M365 Backup
What happens if you lose your unique Microsoft 365 cloud data? Would you know how to recover it? A Backup-as-a-Service solution lets you keep control of your cloud data and rely on maximum restore performance of any data source.
Your cloud data is managed in a SaaS or cloud solution like M365 – but not protected with backup. In the event of human error, a malicious attack or other incidents - the responsibility for having an operational backup rests solely with you.
- Email communication is the backbone of modern businesses.
- An estimated 60% of all business-critical information is stored in email archives. Information like personal data, contracts and invoices.
- With a backup solution you can search in Microsoft’s native formats for single users or groups with just a few clicks.
In Case you Need to Recover Your Data
Most enterprises need a longer recovery option period for their Outlook, OneDrive or SharePoint files than Microsoft’s maximum of 90 days before permanent deletion.
With our M365 backup solution you can specify a retention policy that suits your business. Microsoft keeps a limited backup of your data only:
Separation of duties for maximum data security
In the event of a ransomware or virus attack your infected files would synchronize with your M365 data. However, a solution with separation of duties prevents you from damage.
Recover M365 files after data deletion or data loss
Microsoft’s retention period for deleted files is 90 days. With Backup-as-a-Service you can quickly access and recover your files from any point – independently of third parties.
to Back up Your Microsoft 365
Learn 6 reasons why you need a backup solution to minimize your risk and to prevent your cloud data from becoming that single point of failure:
- Your cloud data is not immune to ransomware
In the event of a ransomware or virus attack, your infected files would synchronize with your M365 data or other cloud data, infecting everything. An M365 backup can prevent this kind of disaster.
- It is a potential single point of failure
With a backup solution that includes separation of duties, no single administrator has access to both your cloud data and your backup data. And you get the added protection of your backup data being physically separated from the Azure Cloud.
- The retention span is too short
Microsoft M365 only keeps a limited backup of your data. Since much of your business-critical information is stored in your mailbox – and potentially the recycle bin – having a separate backup with an adequate retention span can reduce the risk of lost data.
- It doesn’t meet IT compliance requirements
You need a long-term backup solution for your cloud data to ensure that your company is in compliance with IT governance and regulatory requirements. Only with a true backup solution can you define the relevant recovery and retention levels.
- Accidental deletion is a risk
To err is human, but not being able to recover is a disaster. By the time you realize that someone has accidentally deleted a vital email message or other M365 data, it might be too late to recover it. With a backup solution, you can restore your data from any point in history.
- An Microsoft 365 service outage is inevitable
Service failure is a probable scenario – also for your cloud applications and M365 solution. With a backup solution, you can eliminate the potential business down time and costs associated with losing the connection to your vital emails and other archives.
