Microsoft 365 Backup Solutions

D’oh! Is your Microsoft 365 data being backed up?

Did you know that protecting Office 365 is more important today than ever? 345 million people are using Microsoft 365 (paid seats), and in 2022, about 40,000 users were utilising Microsoft 365 every hour, with the UK accounting for 8% of 365 users.


Retention Policies​

Microsoft’s native retention policies can be complicated. Email has a 14 or 30-day retention, OneDrive and SharePoint have up to 93 days, and deleted Teams will be retained for 30 days. Is three months long enough? What happens if a breach occurs or a board director needs an email that was deleted 94 days ago

“Many businesses need to be made aware that Microsoft Office 365 Archiver isn’t a backup solution, nor is Microsoft responsible for backing up Office 365 data”.

Microsoft says…

they are responsible for the availability of the application, and customers are responsible for users, data and administration. Many businesses are only aware that they are responsible for backup once they need to restore something they have accidentally deleted or lost data in a cyber breach.
