What is Microsoft Teams?

Microsoft Teams is a comprehensive chat and collaboration platform that is part of the Microsoft 365 productivity cloud suite of applications. It provides businesses with chat, video meetings, and file storage, as well as workflow integration with Microsoft 365 software including Excel, Word, and Sharepoint. Since Microsoft only assures service availability, and not of the data within, it is necessary for businesses to use a Microsoft Teams data backup solution.

Do you need to backup Microsoft Teams data?

As with other Microsoft 365 applications, however, organizations often overlook the fact that Microsoft is not responsible for backing up your Teams data, as per their service agreement. Like many other SaaS vendors, Microsoft operates under the “Shared Responsibility model,” meaning that although they will protect their infrastructure and applications, keeping the data safe is up to the users.

How do you backup Microsoft Teams?

It’s a simple process with Datto Saas Protection—you’ll keep your clients’ Microsoft Teams data safe with just a few clicks.
