Managed Microsoft 365 Backup Services


Microsoft does not backup Microsoft 365 data

Avoid massive loss of data and instant non-compliance with industry regulations and data privacy requirements  


Does Microsoft really not backup Microsoft 365?



I thought Microsoft Azure had redundancy processes?

Microsoft replicates data in at least two geographic locations, but these are to ensure Microsoft can maintain 99.9% uptime. Data is not made available to customers for restoring their data. 


I thought Microsoft 365 data could be restored?

Microsoft can restore libraries and mailboxes, but any data created or amended from the point of the restoration will be lost. This data will likely be far more than would be lost through formal backup processes.


Microsoft itself recommends using third-party services for backup


“We recommend that you regularly backup your Content and Data that you store on the Services using Third-Party Apps and Services.”

If operational data is held in Microsoft 365 and not backed up, are you adhering to data governance industry regulations?
