Does Office 365 Offer a Complete
Backup & Recovery Solution?

Does Office 365 Offer a Complete Backup & Recovery Solution? Don`t Assume So!

This has happened to all of us before: When working on different documents sometimes our work gets lost – files get deleted by accident, overwritten or even hacked. Backup facilities and recovery features are often the last resort to restoring missing files. While Office 365 Microsoft provides a full stack of powerful tools, does that also include a comprehensive backup and restore solution? To keep it short – NO. Learn more about the reasons in today`s post.

Increasingly many business relevant activities are handled through Office 365. However, with just one click important files might get lost or deleted by accident. In addition to that, there are further challenges threatening the security of your Office 365 data:

  • Internal security risks
  • External security threads
  • Business requirements
  • Hybrid environments

When it comes to their own data security, many organizations completely rely on Microsoft thinking its Software as a Service (SaaS) offering also includes a complete backup and recovery solution.

Beware of the unexpected!

Although Microsoft does provides backup and recovery features, most of them will not be extensive enough to meet your business standards.

Take a look at the following illustration showing the different stages and time frames for storage and backup activities within Office 365:

Now, you might ask yourself, “Why is Microsoft not taking ownership and responsibility for the whole chain within Office 365?” It’s down to the “shared responsibility model” below:
