4 Reasons to Back Up Microsoft Office 365 Data

While Microsoft Office 365 provides tremendous business value and high data availability, it lacks comprehensive data protection. There are four key backup and protection needs that Microsoft does not cover for your Office 365 data:

  1. Data-level security to protect from malware or accidental deletion

  2. Long-term data retention with granular recovery options

  3. Backup and protection of data at a second location, on-prem or in the cloud

  4. Comprehensive legal/compliance hold allowing you to retrieve even data that was purposefully deleted long ago

Office 365 Data Protection. It is Essential.

With a cloud platform like Microsoft Office 365 comes the expectation that your business-critical data is safe and protected at all times. After all, you are paying for a service (or subscription model) which is supposed to make business processes and data available at all times, from anywhere. This also means that the data required to ensure business continuity is secured and protected. Right?

Unfortunately, that is an incorrect assumption. Data availability is different from data protection. Data availability is achieved by having redundancy zones. Data protection, on the other hand, refers to the ability to revive or restore data in the event of a failure, disaster, or attack. This is achieved by backing up your data in secure and reliable storage (on-prem or in the cloud).

For all its capabilities, great features and ability, Office 365 only ensures high availability of data. What it lacks is a comprehensive protection for your business-critical assets.

This is a listing of what is covered vs. what your organization needs to focus on for comprehensive protection and business continuity.
