Why do I need to backup Microsoft 365?

It is essential to backup your Microsoft 365 data as it is susceptible to the same risks that your on-premises data faces. While Microsoft provides many great compliance tools to ensure your data is retained over a set period of time and ensures infrastructure uptime for service availability, it’s vital to recognize the distinction between these features and a comprehensive backup solution. The responsibility of protecting your data ultimately lies in your hands, and not entirely on Microsoft. Here are some reasons why backing up your Microsoft 365 data is critical:

  • Accidental deletion: Accidental deletion, modification, or overwrites of data can be catastrophic. With a backup solution, you can quickly recover lost data and maintain business continuity.
  • Retention policy gaps: Microsoft’s retention policies can be complex to understand and implement correctly, leaving your data at risk of loss after the retention period expires.
  • Internal security threats: The risk of internal threats, like disgruntled employees deleting essential data, is real and can’t be ignored.
  • External security threats: Cybersecurity threats like ransomware, malware, and phishing attacks can compromise your data and cause significant damage to your business.
  • Legal and compliance requirements: Many industries have specific legal and compliance requirements for data retention and protection. A comprehensive backup solution can help you meet these requirements.
