Microsoft 365 Backup: Safeguard Your Data

Microsoft 365 Backup: Safeguard Your Data


Cybersecurity has become a top priority for organizations facing the rising threat of ransomware encryption attacks and security breaches. Protecting sensitive information and ensuring data recovery is essential for maintaining business continuity and meeting regulatory requirements.

Microsoft 365 incorporates numerous compliance and availability features; however, it does not include comprehensive backup capabilities as default. As per their Shared Responsibility Model, Microsoft does not consider itself responsible for customer data. Instead, it is the customer’s responsibility to safeguard the data generated within Microsoft 365. Many customers are relying on third-party solutions to protect their Microsoft 365 data.

During Inspire 2023, Microsoft Introduced Microsoft 365 Backup – a powerful solution designed to provide swift recovery of your OneDrive, SharePoint, and Exchange data, even when dealing with massive volumes of information. With a robust restore service level agreement (SLA) and unwavering commitment to security, Microsoft 365 Backup keeps your data protected within the trusted Microsoft 365 security boundary.

Key Features:

  • Backup all or select SharePoint sites, OneDrive accounts, and Exchange mailboxes in your tenant.
  • Restore files, sites, and mailbox items in parallel to a specific point-in-time, either in a granular manner or on a massive scale.
  • Easily search and filter content in your backups using essential metadata such as item or site names, owners, or event types within specific restore point date ranges.

Microsoft 365 Backup is in a private preview and will be available in a public preview starting in Q4 of this year. You can signup for a preview. Pricing is yet to be revealed, I guess it will be on its general availability only.

Accessing Microsoft 365 Backup is seamless, right from the Microsoft 365 admin center. However, the benefits of this technology don’t stop there! You can also leverage partner applications built on top of Microsoft Backup APIs. This option allows you to back up non-Microsoft 365 data or collaborate with your preferred partners while maintaining the same level of backup and restore speeds with the assurance of Microsoft’s security and compliance domain.
