We all backup our data, don’t we? Well what about protecting cloud data and in particular Office 365, you think Microsoft takes care of that? Well Microsoft does a very good job on making sure your O365 data is geo-available from their regional data centres but what about if you accidentally delete files or data or emails or a disgruntled colleague deletes data or you just make a mistake and want to access an archive copy? well that is not Microsoft’s responsibility and that is where Veeam Backup for Office 365 has you covered.
Microsoft Office 365 enables your enterprise to work anywhere, anytime, without the need to host your own Exchange mail, File server or SharePoint infrastructure. Even though Microsoft hosts the infrastructure, this doesn’t replace your responsibility of maintaining a backup of your business-critical Office 365 data.
With Office 365, it’s your data — you control it — and it is your responsibility to protect it.
- Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 gives you the power to securely backup Office 365 and:
- Protect your Office 365 data from accidental deletion, security threats and retention policy gaps
- Quickly restore individual Office 365 email, files and sites with industry-leading recovery flexibility
- Meet legal and compliance requirements with efficient eDiscovery of Office 365 items

If you delete a user, whether you meant to or not, that deletion is replicated across the network, along with the deletion of their personal SharePoint site and their OneDrive data. Native recycle bins and version histories included in Office 365 can only protect you from data loss in a limited way, which can turn a simple recovery from a proper backup into a big problem after Office 365 has geo-redundantly deleted the data forever, or it has fallen out of the retention period
The fast pace of business in the digital age lends itself to continuously evolving policies, including retention policies that are difficult to keep up with, let alone manage. Just like hard and soft delete, Office 365 has limited backup and retention policies that can only fend off situational data loss, and is not intended to be an all-encompassing backup solution
The idea of a security threat brings to mind hackers and viruses. However, businesses experience threats from the inside, and they are happening more often than you think. Organisations fall victim to threats posed by their very own employees, both intentionally and unintentionally
Malware and viruses, like ransomware, have done serious damage to organisations across the globe. Not only is your company reputation at risk, but the privacy and security of internal and customer data as well
Sometimes you need to unexpectedly retrieve emails, files or other types of data amid legal action. Something you never think is going to happen to you until it does. Microsoft has built in a couple of safety nets, (Litigation Hold) but again, these are not a robust backup solution capable of keeping your company out of legal trouble. For example, if you accidentally delete a user, their onhold mailbox, personal SharePoint site and OneDrive account is also deleted
Organizations that adopt Office 365 typically need a window of time to serve as a transition window between on-premises Exchange and Office 365 Exchange Online. Some even leave a small portion of their legacy system in place to have added flexibility and additional control. These hybrid email deployments are common, yet pose additional management challenges which we can help with.
