Protect SaaS data with Microsoft 365 backup

By Andrew Burton

Let's Get Technical

What is Microsoft 365 backup?

Microsoft 365, formerly known as Office 365, is the productivity cloud suite of applications from Microsoft. It includes Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Outlook as well as cloud solutions such as Teams and OneDrive. Employing a Microsoft 365 backup solution is essential, since Microsoft only assures service availability, and not data within.

Keep data safe with Microsoft 365

When organizations adopt Microsoft 365, it is critical to understand that Microsoft’s service agreement does not hold Microsoft responsible for backing up your data. Most SaaS vendors operate under something called “the Shared Responsibility model” this basically means that Microsoft and others will protect their applications and infrastructure but not the data within, that falls to users.

Backing up Microsoft 365 is a must for any business and SaaS Vendors often recommend taking a back of your data, including Microsoft, to protect against data loss. Human error is the leading cause of data loss for businesses, but it doesn’t stop there. In addition to accidental, or malicious deletion, o365 backup is also necessary due to threats from:

  • Ransomware, virus, or other malware
  • External hackers
  • Hard disk or storage damage
  • Software corruption
  • Natural disaster
