Have you found any clear SLA covered backup policy from Microsoft on how they will be protecting your data on Office 365, including SharePoint, Exchange and OneDrive? No? That's normal, as none of us can find it, like those replies in this discussion thread on Microsoft Tech Community. Therefore, we need a secure backup solution like CloudBacko's Office 365 backup solution to put your Office 365 data under your own control!
Companies deploying SaaS applications (e.g. Office 365) usually assume the service provider has provided enough data protection, and therefore overlook the need for backup. In Gartner's May 2019 report entitled "Assuming SaaS Applications Don't Require Backup is Dangerous" (click here to read the report), they explained the need for backup and to develop an appropriate strategy for each SaaS application are important to businesses. Therefore, if you are using Office 365 Exchange Online email service, backup is a must.
Administrator of your company's Office 365 account is able to back up all or selected Office 365 SharePoint, Outlook and OneDrive items, files and folders with our CloudBacko Pro software. For individual Office 365 users, they can use CloudBacko Lite to backup their own data in Office 365. See all the supported Office 365 services at here.
CloudBacko enables Office 365 administrators to back up all or selected mailboxes under their accounts with just a few clicks. Besides the full mailbox, you can also backup and restore brick-level items such as emails, contacts, calendars and tasks.
To avoid disastrous data loss, the best practice is to keep at least 3 copies of your data:
When performing Office 365 backup to another cloud, since it is not your own environment, make sure to enable encryption to prevent somebody from stealing your data. With CloudBacko Pro, no lazy encrypting keys such as "abc123" or "123456" will be used. It provides unbreakable encryption to your Office 365 Exchange backup, SharePoint backup, and OneDrive backup, as all the data and filenames can be encrypted with an AES 256-bit truly randomized key. Even a 10.51 Pentaflops supercomputer needs 3.31 x 1056 years to crack such key. Therefore, hackers will not be able to crack your backed up data on the cloud.
You need a backup solution that can automatically run once or several times a day by itself based on your pre-configured schedule, so that you can restore to the latest version when needed. CloudBacko Pro allows you to define your own schedules to run the Office 365 email backup (e.g. after work everyday).
It's always good to keep mulitple backup versions of your Office 365 backup, so that when you realize it's not the latest backup you want to restore to, you can still choose an earlier version to restore. With CloudBacko Pro's powerful retention policy setup, it is simple and flexible to define various versioning rules to suit your version retention needs.
Backed up Office 365 data items can be restored to original or different Office 365 domain for migration or disaster recovery purposes.
With CloudBacko Pro's comprehensive reporting tool, it can't be more handy to get clear visibility into the backup details of all destinations, including usage trend, backup and restore reports, log for warnings and errors.
