Why do I need to back up Microsoft 365?

As the shift to home/flexible working continues, more organisations are taking advantage of cloud-based technology solutions such as Microsoft 365, SharePoint & Teams.

Is Microsoft 365 already backed up?

Put simply, no. As a platform, Microsoft 365 is secure, but your data is not backed up in the way that most organisations require. Typically, there’s only a 30-day retention period inbuilt into Microsoft 365, and Microsoft SharePoint Online is only backed up every 12 hours, with just a 14-day retention period, meaning that once data is gone, it’s gone.

Why do I need to back up Microsoft 365?

Ultimately, it’s up to you, the user, to safeguard data. Many companies don’t realise that Microsoft is not responsible for the protection and retention of users’ data – and this can have serious consequences. Just imagine if you lost access to all the information in your Microsoft 365 environment. With so much data distributed amongst Microsoft 365 programmes – whether that’s spreadsheets, Word documents, emails and even calendar details – backing everything up is vital.

Techsol Group offer a Microsoft 365 backup service to avoid any unforeseen data loss incidents, which will provide additional protection.  The service has numerous benefits, but the key points are detailed below:

Automated, continuous backups

Protect Microsoft 365 applications against accidental or malicious deletion, ransomware attacks, and other cloud data loss with 3x daily, automated backups.

Recover quickly

Restore lost data quickly with flexible restore options such as point-in-time, granular, and non-destructive restore.

Simple, per-license pricing

The charge for the service is only a couple of pounds per month, per user and can be added to your regular monthly invoice. A small price to pay for being able to recover your business data should the worst happen.

Contact Techsol Group to find out more or to enquire about adding Microsoft 365 backups to your contract. You can call us on 03300 245447 or email for a chat.
