Essential Backup For Your Business
Microsoft Exchange Online and SharePoint Online are two of the most common places businesses keep critical company data in Microsoft 365.
Various templates, documents in creation, and mailbox data – just a few examples of the things that are usually important to the daily operations of any business and not to be deleted or lost.
Many businesses believe that cloud services such as Microsoft 365 provide all the necessary data protection they need. However, this is NOT the case ….
Ultimately, the data residing in Microsoft 365 – including emails and SharePoint documents – are the customer’s responsibility – not Microsoft’s, which it explains in its service agreements:
While Microsoft 365 offers protection to deal with some of the things that could damage your data, there are other things it does not protect you from such as:
Recovering deleted users – When a business deletes a Microsoft 365 user, accidentally or on-purpose, the deletion is replicated across the Microsoft infrastructure and that user’s personal SharePoint and OneDrive data is lost. It cannot be recovered.
Recovering deleted emails – Permanently deleted emails are retained for a maximum of 30 days. Company policies or Australia’s compliance regulations may require much longer retention periods.
Recovering from malicious acts – Suppose that a disgruntled employee deletes important documents or emails. By the time anyone notices they are missing, the Microsoft infrastructure may have already purged them.
Legal issues – If a business is involved in contract negotiations or a legal issue. At times the legal process may need to search and recover documents and emails that are many years old. Without a regular backup process in place, much of this data will be gone.
Most businesses need regular backups to preserve important historical email and data records.
