Backup For Microsoft 365 – A Critical But Often Overlooked Necessity.


November 24, 2021

When you use Microsoft 365 you get to leverage some of the best productivity tools available to help with your core day to day business activities.  Whether it is managing emails with Outlook, document production with Word and Excel or having somewhere to save and share your documents with OneDrive or SharePoint, Microsoft has you covered.

Access Control Responsibility

With many of the above services hosted in the Cloud and conveniently available wherever you go, it is easy to adopt a false sense of security and overlook the fact that by default Microsoft does not provide a comprehensive backup for Microsoft 365 and recovery solution should anything happen to your business-critical data.  In fact, Microsoft explicitly state that whilst it is Microsoft’s responsibility to maintain the uptime of the infrastructure on which your data sits, the access and control of your Microsoft 365 data is your responsibility.

“There is no such thing as ‘away’. When we throw anything away it must go somewhere.”
– Annie Leonard, Proponent of Sustainability
